about this item

This color-illustrated exploration of suburbia around the world features contributions from artists, researchers, theorists, and academics affiliated with the MIT Norman B. Leventhal Center for Advanced Urbanism. Surveying current trends in suburban design and development around the world, the book seeks to demonstrate the potential of suburbs to be more productive landscapes. Many of the contributors look at how suburbia could be designed for environmental retrofitting, home-based employment, energy production, novel ecosystems, and as a hub for social programs. Material is grouped according to themes, such as the drive for upward social mobility, the anti-suburban crusade, the suburb and the explosion of global urbanization, and suburbia as a class issue. Other themes are Millennials and the suburbs, race and ethnicity in the suburbs, types of high-tech districts, and suburbs and the environment. The book includes chapter-length case studies of countries and cities. It contains color photos, maps, charts, plans, and illustrations on every page, many in large format.
