Finding Common Ground: Reimagining Suburban Housing and Public Space

Annual Meeting Proceedings

Author(s): S. Omar Ali & Nimet Anwar

Finding Common Ground is a speculative project that rethinks the exclusionary and constrained idea of single-family zoning in the suburbs and exurbs in North America. Currently, there are many issues contemporary suburban housing must address ranging from climate change, accessibility of affordable housing, changing demographics, constrictive zoning codes, and problematic housing and economic policy. In order to implement actionable and meaningful change in the suburban landscape, Finding Common Ground studies and projects design, policy, and economic frameworks that respond to the evolutive and varied needs of its suburban residents.
