ULI – Retrofitting Suburbia: Case Studies with Ellen Dunham-Jones
Join us as Ellen Dunham-Jones, co-author of Retrofitting Suburbia and host of the REDESIGNING CITIES podcast, shares a series of case studies in which city leaders formed key partnerships to redevelop, reinhabit, and re-green underperforming suburban properties to address challenges they were never designed for.
Case Studies in Retrofitting Suburbia: Urban Design Strategies for Urgent Challenges, second in a series by Georgia Tech Professor Ellen Dunham-Jones, documents how defunct shopping malls, parking lots, and the past century’s other obsolete suburban development patterns are being retrofitted to address current urgent challenges they weren’t designed for: improving public health, increasing resilience in the face of climate change, leveraging social capital for equity, supporting an aging society, competing for jobs, and disrupting automobile dependence.
