As the suburbs become the dominant living condition for most North Americans, the challenges associated with their low-density, car-centric development pattern prove more problematic. Planners, architects, and developers are starting to reimagine ways of designing and retrofitting the suburban model to increase connectivity and provide a better mix of uses. Today we're joined by the Department Chair at the City College of New York's Spitzer School of Architecture June Williamson and urban geographer Joel Kotkin to explore how history led to the suburbs we know today, and how emerging mobility solutions may ease the transition.
This conversation is part one of a Virtual Learning Series on the next generation of American Suburbs in partnership with the Toyota Mobility Foundation.
