Dolores Hayden: "A Field Guide to Sprawl" (Norton)
"Suburban sprawl" -- we all know it when we see it, but we don't always have the words to talk about it. Architecture professor Dolores Hayden explains some of the terms that have been coined by designers and planners to describe new patterns in housing and retail development all over America. We'll learn how to tell a "boomburb" from a "zoomburb," and "litter on a stick" from a "pork chop lot."
