How to reshape suburban sprawl? If you think about it the demands of today are high. People want their McMansion on decent sized lots (which they think is 1/3 an acre, but that’s for another day). I live in Charlotte, NC where our outer beltway is over a hundred miles long and it doesn’t even begin to encircle Charlotte’s suburb. If you have errands to run, in a single day, I constantly drive 100 miles just for errands! How can we fix this?
Enter the Inhabitat / Dwell REBURBIA competition, by sending up to 5 images and a statement about your design proposal. You can submit as many entries as you like, but each individual entry should be focused on one singular design problem/solution (i.e. a McMansion farm rehab, a bicycle transportation hub, a piezoelectric, energy-generating freeway paving system). Entries will be judged on clarity of idea, usefulness of design, and visual/aesthetic appeal of renderings.
