About this title


During six years photographer Martin Adolfsson have documented one of the greatest economic and cultural shifts in modern history by photographing model homes in eight emerging economies spanning five continents while pretending to be a potential home buyer and secretly documenting these shiny new Suburbs in Bangkok, Shanghai, Bangalore, Cairo, Moscow, Johannesburg, São Paulo and Mexico City. The foreword have been written by Joseph Grima, Architecture critic and Editor-in-Chief at Italian Domus Magazine.  Grima calls the work an urgently needed research into the state of contemporary urbanization, it offers 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."
