The Growth of Towns and Cities

Streaming Video - 2006
Rate this:
This program looks on urban landscapes as a series of layers of architectural evidence, each of which is the key to another chapter in the history of the area, and another chapter in the way people's lifestyles have been changed by technology. The program examines how industrialization led to urbanization, which led to higher rents, overcrowding, and problems of sanitation, which in turn led to governmental controls; it also shows how railways and improved transportation opened up cities and led to the growth of suburbs.
