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.
