Alex MacLean: Surveying a Changed Landscape
"MacLean demonstrated what he calls 'incredible rapid growth' through a photograph of a suburban development in Las Vegas where rows of construction sites consume every piece of open space in the frame. He implied the growth is partially due to population increase and residential zoning requirements, but it is also driven by the desire for each family to have its own private dwelling unit with its own private yard.
MacLean also noted that the average house size has doubled since 1970 and that new communities are taking up a lot more space."
