Different ways of designing suburbs (images by photographerYann Arthus-Bertrand).
Second, a suburb of Copenhagen, Denmark. I’m not sure what to think, other than that it makes a stunning image from the air. Would this be a more desirable community to live in than the American style suburb? Why or why not? Is it a better or worse use of land and space?
It’s an intriguing comparison, because it’s easy to promote one or the other approach via public policy. Which is not an argument that particular types of suburbs should be encouraged via public policy, just an expectation that–whether wise or not–it will continue to happen.
