Orthodox economic models often linked the size of cities to their economies. However, this changed through the last quarter of the 20th century; cities grew bigger, side by side to unemployment, inflation and falling wages and productivity (Davis, 2006). In Egypt, urban migration was considered the root of the city’s density. In the seventies,...

Sub-Saharan Africa is often regarded as the world’s fasted urbanizing region. This implies the high demand for urban housing, infrastructure developments and services. In many cases, because the government is unable to provide solutions, it shifts the approach from “providing to enabling”, encouraging the private sector to invest in the built...

Lelystad's first commercial area, Lelycentre, was originally intended to be the starting point of the planned city centre in the first phase in 1964, emphasising the connection to the fourth planned polder of the Zuiderzeewerken.
