Verticalization
In urbanism , VERTICALIZATION is the rapid increase of inner city apartment high-rise buildings, resulting in the development of "vertical" city parts and urban densification . Although both verticalization and densification processes in cities can provide several advantages, such modifications in the urban landscape were implemented extremely fast, especially after the Second World War. In order to increase densities, urban housing policies encouraged new forms of vertical building. The process of verticalization is also related to consumer culture and symbols of power .

The term "authority " is often used for power perceived as legitimate by the social structure . Power can be seen as evil or unjust , but the exercise of power is accepted as endemic to humans as social beings. In business , power is often expressed as being "upward" or "downward". With downward power, a company's superior influences subordinates. When a company exerts upward power, it is the subordinates who influence the decisions of their leader or leaders. The use of power need not involve force or the threat of force (coercion ). At one extreme, it closely resembles what an English-speaking person might term "influence", although some authors distinguish "influence" as a means by which power is used.
