You know how a western and non-western city is built up.
Western (American): CBD at the centre, with older neighbourhoods surrounding it. Industrial area at the edges of the centre and suburbs (far) outside the city.
Western (European): Similar to American cities but with a historic centre.
Non-western: Chaotic because of fast growth. One or more CBD, scattered industral sites, gated communities for the rich and slum districts where the rich don't want to live.
You understand that urbanisation is increasing now more often in the peripheral zone of the city.
People move to where there is still place to live (the edges of cities).
You can describe the structure of an American city using a map or model.
