Suburbia is here, and it cannot be rebuilt, but it can and must be pushed forward. With able stewardship we can encourage the formation of a second generation suburbia which will finally become a valid and beneficial pattern of settlement. Suburbia need no longer be ‘less than the city’ or ‘less than the country’, it need only become better at being itself.
