Why We’ve Got The Suburbs Wrong

think.kera.org 7

Suburbia has historically presented urban planners with a blank slate and an opportunity to rethink how we live alongside one another. Amanda Kolson Hurley joins guest host Courtney Collins to talk about planned communities that have bucked conventional thinking – from a tiny-house anarchist neighborhood in New Jersey to a Modernist enclave in Massachusetts. Her new book is called “Radical Suburbs: Experimental Living on the Fringes of the American City” (Belt Publishing).
