In het interbellum staat het gezond maken van de stad centraal. Wat gezond is voor de stad, zal ook gezond zijn voor de mensen die haar bewonen. Problemen als het toenemende verkeer, gebrek aan openbare ruimte, opeenstapeling van woningen, de overlast van bedrijven en een structuurloze uitbreiding. De oplossingen worden gezocht in de ordening van het verkeer, de aanleg van parken en parkstelsels, de scheiding van werken en wonen, gezonde woningbouw plattegronden. Rationele verkavelingprincipes garandeerden voldoende licht- en luchttoetreding in wijk en woning.

Making cities healthy was a key concern in the inter-war period: something that is healthy for the city will also be healthy for the people who live there. Planners sought solutions for problems such as increasing traffic, a lack of public space, the accumulation of dwellings, the nuisance caused by industry and unstructured expansion in the regulation of traffic, the creation of parks and park systems, the separation of work and home, and healthy housing and domestic floor-plans. Rational land parcellation principles guaranteed sufficient natural light and fresh air in neighbourhoods and individual dwellings.
