Abstract

Suburban cities are renowned for containing a limited range of housing typologies, specifically the single family house and the apartment. This thesis examines the varied groups whose needs are not served by the housing types offered in the suburban model as well as the role that typical suburban housing has had in shaping the suburban city model. Included are design solutions for introducing varied housing typologies into an existing suburban city, schematic plans for implementing mass transit, a reorganization plan for zoning layouts and a financial analysis for implementing specific housing modifications.
