Description

Smart Growth advocates, environmentalists, and New Urbanists have all tried in their own ways to spread the message of reforming current land use patterns. Their solutions are often criticised for being overly prescriptive, opposed to growth, or nostalgic. Suburban Transformations offers an alternative to these practices while synthesising many of the ideas and proposals that they put forth.

Surburban Transformations introduces the Adaptive Design Process, a method that allows for the organic transformation of communities from surburbs and edge cities that lack a sense of place, into communities with their own distinct identity and unique character. Five case studies provide fully expressed examples of the process, beginning with a sophisticated system of mapping and culminating in computer projections of likely future outcomes, giving the designer the ability to project changes in the community fabric and adding that knowledge to the designers kit of place-making tools.
