Suburban Geographies

Buy this issue Subscribe

Suburban politics are, of course, specific to each country and city, and this issue only examines some of them (the United States, Brazil, South Africa, France, and Palestine). However, they all share a geographical distance from city centers, corresponding to another distance, a societal one, whether forced on their inhabitants or chosen by them. Both of these distances are profoundly political, and their urban and architectural materializations require a thorough examination of the way they interact with the bodies they host.
