Originally published in 1989, America’s Suburban Centers looks at how America’s suburban workplaces are being increasingly designed for automobiles rather than people. The emergence of sprawling office complexes devoid of housing, shops and other facilities is giving rise to regional congestion problems because of the ever-greater dependence on automobiles. This book argues that the low-density, single-use, and non-integrated character of America’s suburban centers is a root cause of declining levels of mobility and worsening traffic congestion.
