Contents Notes "With a new update introduction, this is a comprehensive guidebook for architects, planners, urban designers, and developers that illustrates how existing suburbs can be redesigned and redeveloped. The authors, both architects and noted experts on the subject, shows how development in existing suburbs can absorb new growth and evolve in relation to changed demographic, technological, and economic conditions. The book documents innovative case studies of prototypical American suburban developments (malls, commercial strips, office parks, cul-de-sac subdivisions) that have been retrofitted to new uses and forms. It offers hands-on lessons for architects and urban planners interested in sustainability and smart growth to redesign suburbs as alternatives to the norms of sprawl"--
