Urbanism is considered the most efficient answer for the need of residential space, especially when it is compared to the suburban solution. However, people are going to live where they feel most comfortable. The urban life style is not everyone’s favorite choice as it can be seen in America’s love for the suburbs. The suburban style is comfortable for many people. If people are choosing not to move to urban environments, then urbanism cannot be the only viable solution to solve our inefficient suburban style of living. This project will reduce the effects of sprawl by allowing suburban space to grow up instead of out, offering a different, more sustainable solution to our need for residential space.
