Meet Your New Suburbs

New, 8 comments

The results of Inhabitat and Dwell's ReBurbia competition to reimagine the suburbs are in, and the winner is Frog's Dream, which does not involve kissing princesses, but is a "plan to convert foreclosed McMansions into water-filtering wetlands that provide urban areas with a steady source of water." Zoning upheaval scheme Entrepreneurbia placed second, Big Box Agriculture placed third, and the Urban Sprawl Repair Kit, a set of infill and retrofitting strategies, won the People's Choice award. The winners will be published in Dwell's December 2009/January 2010 issue. [Inhabitat]
