Southfield is a suburb of Detroit located about twelve miles northwest of the central city. It is noted for the Northland Regional Shopping Center, the first large regional shopping center built in the United States (opened 1954), and the Prudential Town Center, a suburban "pseudo-city" consisting of skyscraper towers surrounded by extensive parking lots built from 1973-1989. Lacking in the integrated social and economic qualities of traditional cities, this sort of development nevertheless meets the needs of its users efficiently and is representative of planning and architecture in late 20th Century America.
