Urban space is a product of three principal developments. The first is the growth of settlements in terms of size and number, including their spreading. The second is an increase in the population living in urban areas. The third is the transformation of society attributable to the realm that people who live in towns and cities follow an urban lifestyle, which can be distinctive from a rural lifestyle.
