>>> Something has gone radically wrong in our conception of what a city should be. The cities everyone wants to live in should be clean and safe, possess efficient public services, be supported by a dynamic economy, provide cultural stimulation, and also do their best to heal society’s divisions of race, class, and ethnicity. But these are not the cities we live in. The ‘closed city’ – segregated, regimented, and controlled – has spread from the global North to the exploding urban agglomerations of the global South. Dominant forms or urban growth have become mono-functional, isolated in space, and sealed off from their surroundings. The most popular form of residential housing, world-wide, is the gated community.<<<
