Vancouverism is a term used in urban planning . It is named after the Canadian city ​​of Vancouver .

This is used to describe urban development technology, in which medium-sized industrial areas are mixed with skyscrapers that are not very extensive and serve as residential buildings in order to ensure a view of the surrounding landscape. In the 1970s, the citizens decided against the "car-friendly city" with elevated roads that cut the cities. An extensive area was reduced and a city center was created in which people can live and work. In addition, local public transport was expanded.
