Description:It is widely assumed that future trends will transform the bland, cookie-cutter, suburbs that surround our cities. While there has been no shortage of speculation about which external forces—environmental, economic, demographic—might precipitate this change, there have been surprisingly few visualizations of how this new suburb might look. Author and architect Paul Lukez introduces the adaptive design process, a way to dramatically transform site-less and soulless suburban communities into distinctive places with character. Demonstrated in five fully illustrated case studies, the process makes fantastic use of sophisticated mapping and computer projections. Sadly out of print, Suburban Transformations is both a fully realized alternative vision of our suburban future and a practical tool for contemporary community planning.
