Yard, Street, Park: The Design of Suburban Open Space
An insightful analysis of the history of suburban development . . .and an exciting new approach to suburban planning
This book was devised to help designers, planners, and developers of suburban communities deliver on their traditional promise to offer "the best of both worlds." The authors take a hard look at more than a century of suburban planning and analyze developer-designed suburbs. Most importantly, they offer a dynamic approach to suburban development, rooted in historical examples and based on open space planning methods that can be applied to new or existing developments to transform them into sustainable, living communities.
