Infinite Suburbia
Infinite Suburbia

Infinite Suburbia is the culmination of the MIT Norman B. Leventhal Center for Advanced Urbanism’s yearlong study of the future of suburban development. Extensive research produced an exhibition, a conference at MIT’s media lab, and this groundbreaking collection of fifty-two essays by seventy-four authors from twenty different fields.

Following up on Alan Berger’s 2006 Drosscape: Wasting Land in Urban America, also designed by Adam Michaels and published by Princeton Architectural Press, this 784-page volume is intended as the definitive guide to the history and theory of suburbia. In order to provide an accessible set of entry points to a complex book, brightly colored dividers with thematic tags start each essay, and infographics, maps, and diagrams, are all integrated into an overall design system.
