Patterning Suburbia

This project investigates the monotony and repetiveness of suburbia. Using patterns, the goal was to find new ways to organize the current suburban condition.


Looking into Somerville, New Jersey, a typical suburban neighborhood undergoing major developments,the idea is to use the pattern and lay out a master plan that would fix the monotony of suburbia, but maintain the organization of individual properties. The site is a 75 acre landfill with a river and major highway running along the south and a small shopping center running along the north side. 

I am proposing a development of housing and commercial spaces that will occupy the site.
Using patterning as a tool, different housing types, commerical buildings, and public spaces were
developed and imposed onto the site.
