Danish term or phrase: kulissebyggeri
Op gennem den første halvdel af det 20. århundrede udbyggedes hovedparten af det vestlige

bebyggelsesudviklingen, hvorfor den her blev mere regelmæssig, åben og opdelt efter byggeriets art:

Enten særlige kvarterer med etagebyggeri, parkanlæg, industrikvarterer eller kulissebyggeri med
etagehuse langs de gennemgående veje og bagvedliggende vidtstrakte villakvarterer.
