Inhaltsangabe: The suburbs house two-thirds of North America?s population and are the subject of much debate and criticism. Planning the New Suburbia proposes ways to respond to the challenge of creating affordable, adaptable, and environmentally sustainable neighborhoods. An architect and planner, Avi Friedman suggests new methods of design and regulation that would enable planners and residents to adapt suburban communities and homes to their evolving needs, responding to changing family size, aging, or new working conditions.
Friedman surveys the evolution of urban planning, the history of ?ideal? communities, the development of North American suburbs, and the theory behind flexible suburban design. Three case studies offer practical examples of his approach, and are generously illustrated with drawings, plans, and photographs.
Über den Autor: Avi Friedman is an associate professor in the School of Architecture and director of the Affordable Homes Program at McGill University. He has won numerous awards including the World Habitat Award (United Nations), the Creative Achievement Award (Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture), and the Prix J.-Armand Bombardier (Association canadienne-francaise pour l'avancement des sciences) for his Grow Home and Next Home innovations.
