Designing sustainable neighbourhoods


Like them or loathe them, the 'leafy suburbs' are where the vast majority of us live. But challenges such as housing shortage and climate change mean that the suburbs face potential radical change. Can we respond by creating neighbourhoods that are low-carbon, healthy and happy places to live?
This thought-provoking exhibition sets out the key issues and asks how we might make outer urban areas more sustainable. It shows some of the solutions currently being put forward, both for existing neighbourhoods and newly created ones. These include innovative housing forms that accommodate more people within the same 'footprint' alongside proposals for sustainable urban extensions and 'eco-towns'.
Whether or not you are a suburban-dweller it's likely that you will be affected by these issues. Come and join in the debate about what kind of neighbourhoods we want for the twenty-first century and beyond.
