Session 82: “Space – Place – Society: Are we all suburbanized?”
During this session, Maarit Ströbele presented three texts on the topic of “The Suburban”. Departing from the Suburban as an important type of daily living environment, the three chosen texts introduced new ways of thinking about space and society.
The Robert Fishman text analyzed suburbia in it’s historical context. The Thomas Sieverts text examined the contemporary (1991) European cityscape and finally, the Walter Prigge text presented aspects of Lefebvre’s conceptualization of space.
