About this Blog

As part of the Cavin Family Traveling Scholarship, this blog aims to research the suburban condition as they exist in different contexts: London, England; Tokyo, Japan; and Buenos Aires, Argentina. The prolificacy of suburbia, internationally, serves as a physical archive of domestic norms, political ambitions and topographical responses. This research seeks to decipher how cultural and historical standards have formalized themselves within the familiar context of the suburban home.
