“How can we modify sub-urban boundaries to generate greater social dignity and awareness of marginalisation?”

An interrogation of fairness in suburban geography and it’s diverse thresholds. This exegesis begins unpacking urban inequality with a focus towards young adults and the way the commodification of land is resulting in increasing marginalisation.

From initial utopic approaches, an antithesis was drawn out of the suburban boundary condition recreating it as an analogy of its marginalising effect, both accommodating and concealing the marginalised.

The satirical presentation of ‘real estate opportunities’ informs, through conceptual blend, of the issue of urban sprawl and injustice of the current material dialectic around suburban typologies.
