Superbia! is a book of practical ideas for creating more socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable neighbourhoods. It is about remaking suburban and urban neighbourhoods to serve people better and to reduce human impact on the environment. The authors first trace the history of the suburbs, showing how they fail to meet many peoples' needs. They then describe how existing neighbourhoods can be transformed, offering co-housing and new urbanist communities as examples. The reader is then guided through the transformation of a fictitious neighbourhood that adopts the authors' 31 steps. Ideas for the blossoming of the suburb are described in order of difficulty, from easy to boldest. Examples from all over North America and beyond provide real-life proof that citizen planners can create Superbia! And the most comprehensive resource listing imaginable puts all the tools needed at your fingertips. Well-illustrated and reader-friendly, Superbia! is written primarily for the millions who live in urban areas or existing suburbs. It will also be of major interest to environmentalists, planners, and all who want to create a more humane and nurturing lifestyle.
