Case Studies in Retrofitting Suburbia: Urban Design Strategies for Urgent Challenges, second in a series, documents how defunct shopping malls, parking lots, and the past century’s other obsolete suburban development patterns are being retrofitted to address current urgent challenges they weren’t designed for: improving public health, increasing resilience in the face of climate change, leveraging social capital for equity, supporting an aging society, competing for jobs, and disrupting automobile dependence. Its 32 brand new case studies range from modest interventions with big ripple effects to ambitious do-overs that are spreading revitalization, justice, and shared prosperity from coast to coast.
Join us as author Ellen Dunham-Jones, as well as panelists Samyukth Shenbaga and Sarah Kirsch, discuss Retrofitting Suburbia!
