Post-suburbia merupakan fenomena transformasi perkotaan yang banyak ditemui di berbagai tempat. Fenomena ini terjadi sejalan dengan proses dekonsentrasi dan desentralisasi pekerjaan ke kawasan suburban yang menyusul populasi, sehingga menjadikan pusat kota kehilangan pengaruhnya. Tulisan ini dimaksudkan sebagai tinjauan terhadap berbagai literatur mengenai diskursus post-suburban dari sudut pandang filosofis. Selain itu, diberikan juga konteks perkembangannya di Indonesia, serta tantangan yang dihadapi oleh riset mengenai post-suburban kedepannya. Yaitu terkait dengan keberlanjutan perkotaan, apakah post-suburbia menghasilkan pembangunan yang tidak saja lebih ramah lingkungan, namun juga lebih baik secara ekonomi maupun sosial.


Post-suburbia is a well spread urban transformation phenomenon which could be seen in many places. This phenomenon occurs along with the employment deconcentration and decentralization process following the population towards the suburban area. Such a process makes the urban core losing its influence. This paper aimed as a literature review of post-suburban discourse from a philosophical perspective. Moreover, we also discuss its development in the Indonesian context and several possibilities of its research challenge in the future. Such as its relation with urban sustainability, whether post-suburbia would produce more not only environmental friendly development but also in economic and social aspect.
