Abstract

While urban growth is still persistent as the dominant paradigm in urban planning and development, the fact is that every fourth large city in the world was shrinking as early as in the 1990s. Furthermore, demographic forecasts are suggesting that the number of cities losing population - and economic power - is set to increase rapidly. This article explains the mechanism underpinning the shrinking process in general, as well as describing the symptoms and reasons for urban decay in Detroit, one of the world's best-known cases of a shrinking city. The work concludes with an examination of the impact of grassroots initiatives, such as community gardens, on urban renewal in abandoned areas. - (BJ)
