Arup has released an ideas paper, Towards Superbia: a renewed focus on our suburbs which investigates our local areas and whether they will work well enough for a new-look future.
The paper looks at four types of suburbs and how recent events have challenged how we live in them. Do they really work? How can they adapt to meet out changing needs?
There are five detailed recommendations for ‘superbia’ – with both big ideas and small interventions.
The authors are Dr Tim Williams (Australasia Cities Lead), Penny Hall (Australasia Economics and Planning Lead) and Arthur Smart (Urban Design Lead NSW & ACT).
