Subdivisions. Industrial Parks. Strip Malls. Gridlock. Sprawl is socially unequal, environmentally irresponsible, and aesthetically ugly. Right?

Joel Hirschhorn is a critic of sprawl. Robert Bruegmann thinks sprawl is very American way to live. Photographer Edward Burtynsky documented Chinese industrial zones, and film maker Jennifer Baichwal documented the trip. Tom Perrotta’s novels feature life in the suburbs.
