Building Suburbia: Green Fields and Urban Growth, 1820 to 2000
The development and the expansion of homes, where they are and why they came to be in the places they are, are issues of particular importance to Dolores Hayden, Professor of Architecture and Urbanism and American Studies at Yale University. Her book, “Building Suburbia: Green Fields and Urban Growth, 1820 to 2000,” explores the design and development of the suburbs and suburbia’s relevance in American history.
Dr. Dolores Hayden recommends “A Consumer’s Republic,” by Liz Cohen.
