The End of Suburbia

This documentary about the suburban way of life and suburbs history in the United States is one of the best on the topic. It explains clearly how this way of life and planning ideology rely on oil abundance and how vulnerable it is now that we have reached an oil peak. It also gives interesting insights ont how “suburbia has become the american dream”, how it is embedded in the national identity and why the suburban debate is now a lot larger than urban planning and environmental issues.
