Description: A major portion of urbanized America is in areas loosely referred to as sprawl. Here the subdivision is the dominant living unit. Although New Urbanism has provided adjustments to this common model, few truly innovative models of suburban living exist. The reason for this conservatism is manifold. This seminar will challenge the status quo through a series of unusual strategies, motivated by a series of assumptions drawn from the French philosopher Alain Badiou's "The Century" - a highly polemical view of the 20th century. Registration limited to graduate and 5th year Architecture students. Repeatable for Credit.
