Rethinking Surburbia

Join us for a timely and insightful conversation with the authors of Case Studies in Retrofitting Suburbia as we examine factors driving people to our suburbs and how underperforming suburban property types and development patterns are being reimagined, redeveloped, reinhabited, or re-greened into more sustainable, active, healthy, and community-serving places.
