Abstract

The increase in density in new urban spaces, often peri-urban, is seen as a consequence and manifestation of urbanization. Understanding spatial development tools in Hanoi, including housing projects like “new urban areas” (KDTM), are a way of deciphering the issues related to “city (re)making”. This paper analyzes double-densification patterns through the presence and direction of KDTM projects in suburban areas, converting agricultural land into urban land, making the place sparsely populated into attractive quarter in different ways, both formally and informally. The first time of this suburban double-densification when KDTMs are direct participants, takes place inside the KDTM. The second time of this suburban double-densification when KDTMs are active catalysts, has varied, with more variations.
