SUBURBIA GONE WILD is a beautiful and sometimes frightening visual counterpoint to the numbers, statistics and facts that are thrown at us every day, offering a mental image to accompany a fact we already know: that today the human species is an urban species.
The book provides a fascinating window into one of the greatest structural changes of the 21st-century: the rise of the upper middle class in the developing world. Exploring the search for identity among this new strata of society, Adolfsson takes us in the newly-developed suburbs surrounding the new economic centers of the world.
The work expands across every continent and includes the suburbs of Bangkok, Shanghai, Bangalore, Cairo, Moscow, Johannesburg, Sao Paulo and Mexico City.
The discussion has been moderated by Lorenza Baroncelli.
