Suburban housing estates in many countries are now finding themselves confronted with challenges resulting from declining growth and an ageing population. In this publication, the authors discuss the key elements of this development, showing how planners in different parts of Germany, the Netherlands, Italy and the U.S. are dealing with this problem. In doing so, they are aware of two facts. On the one hand, suburbia takes very different forms in each of the four countries, both physically and socio-economically. On the other hand, suburban housing estates in nearly all developed countries have a number of elements in common, making it useful to compare the different situations.
The International Workshop “Exploring the Future of Suburban Neighbourhoods under Conditions of Declining Growth” with the participation of European and US-American experts was organised by the ILS (Research Institute for Regional and Urban Development). The e-book covers the contributions presented at the workshop.
