Retrofitting Suburbia with Ellen Dunham-Jones a success!

On Wednesday, April 12, 2017 we hosted our second Towards Suburbia seminar with sub/urban design scholar, Ellen Dunham-Jones with great success. Ellen Dunham-Jones shared new case studies and research on how retrofits of prototypical suburban property types throughout North America are helping suburbs address 21st century challenges they were never designed for. She drew on her database of over 1400 examples of dead malls, big box stores, office parks, garden apartments, etc., that have been, or are being, retrofitted into more sustainable, more equitable, and more resilient places.
