The awkwardness of the suburban environs could be likened to a young teen: unsure, flippant, aggressive, and ill prepared, and for these we can forgive them. It takes time to refine character. How best to guide their development? The worry of course, is that the damage is done, and we've entered into the relationship too late to have any significant impact on the outcome. Or, have we caught it early enough, and we hope we have, that we could nurture and train it back into a healthy, productive and inspired place to be. This thesis will defend how to put an end at once to the nowhere of
the suburban utopia, and a beginning to place, purpose and posterity.
