In­fi­ni­te Su­bur­bia ex­plo­res the fu­tu­re of su­bur­ban areas. The suburbs are cur­ren­tly ho­me to 69% of the U.S. po­pu­la­tion, a fi­gu­re that is de­sti­ned to grow si­gni­fi­can­tly over the next thir­ty years. The au­thors view this as an op­por­tu­ni­ty to ex­plo­re how this “in­fi­ni­te su­bur­bia” can ge­ne­ra­te mo­dels of sustainable de­ve­lo­p­ment and a re­for­mu­la­tion of the ve­ry con­cept of ur­ba­ni­za­tion. The vo­lu­me in­clu­des 52 es­says.
