As the world becomes less diverse and less separated, different cultures have started the blend. No other culture in the world has made such a mark as the American culture.

Many designers have promoted these unrealistic ideas, and these ideas have spread around the world. Countries like China that are battling serious population problems, are battling the issue of gated communities, and suburban living promoted by globalization and assimilation of cultures.
