An insightful analysis of the history of suburban development . . .and an exciting new approach to suburban planning

YARD-STREET-PARK

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.
* Offers an in-depth look at the historical origins of modern suburbia -- from the nineteenth century to post-World War II developments such as Riverside, Levittown, and others
* Analyzes "classic" success stories of new town design, including Reston, Virginia and Columbia, Maryland
* Diagnoses the problematic aspects of most developer-designed suburbs
* Outlines methods for developing open space networks linking private and public spaces of all scales by means of greenways, pedestrian connections, and redesigned streets
* Explores new trends in subrban design, including Technoburbs, Ecoburbs, Pedestrian Pockets, and neotraditional communities
* Features over 100 photographs, line drawings, maps, and site plans
