Lists… Names… Lists….

Following on from my last post about the current book I am readying Edgelands.. The chapter list within that book seemed to set a tone especially when within the book itself they quote Alan Berger’s list of names he used to describe urbanisation of the American landscape in his book ‘Drosscape’.  I am not going to list them all again here however I have chosen a few that stand out from his list:

BOOBBURB

DATASCAPE

DISTRIBUTIVE PROTOCOLS

DUMPSPACE

MEGALOPOLIS

MIDOPOLIS

OFF WORLDS

POST-CITY

SPLINTERING URBANISM
