Abstract

The AA. show how the idea of "the suburban" as a non-problematic domain has been perpetuated from a range of contrasting disciplinary perspectives. Attempts to articulate the social possibilities of suburban space are caught between theories of urbanisation that are insensitive to suburban specificity. The AA. propose that the development of a distinctively suburban theory would help to undermine one-dimensional approaches to the built environment by focusing on the relationship between social organisation and the dynamics of emergent built form
