Suburbs aren’t what they used to be. What was once the realm of the white middle class is today a racially, ethnically, and economically diverse context, which may hold the promise of something better. This book digs into the utopian origins of suburban planning to unearth the essential ingredients of a more sustainable model that the current one. Featuring blueprints for affordable, walkable, and integrated suburban communities and filled with a range of environmentally sound residential options, the books offers up history that can help to remake the future and rethink our assumptions of suburbia.
