Summary
  • This comprehensive and insightful volume investigates the historical precedents of and emerging trends in the design of affordable suburban housing. The first book to address the design needs of "production" home builders, this volume features easy-to-follow rules and illustrations, allowing the reader to improve the design of new houses and communities; reviews all aspects of design, from community planning to interior details, providing an integrated perspective on suburban design; demonstrates innovative design initiatives that combine density and affordability with neighborhood and unit quality, enabling home builders to meet customers' needs efficiently; and contains 125 photographs plus 100 line drawings of homes and communities
  • Discussing ways in which we can learn from the past while adapting to changing lifestyles, the author advocates the design of houses as more personal, individualized homes in neighborhoods that accommodate the pedestrian, as well as the automobile. Architects, builders, and planners will benefit from this pioneering approach to suburban design presented in a readable and accessible format
