    1 As if collaged together, a Hindu temple appears between a small hillside suburban neighborhood of identity-seeking duplexes.

    2 A weathered tiny lion provides just the right amount of royalty for any home. It is also a nice little figure set amongst other simple geometries and surface textures.

    3 Retrofitted lofts with ground-floor store fronts adjust to the neighborhood's demographics. The stores reflect the resident Indian population while the lofts above remain visibly untouched.

    • That little lion is surprisingly comfortable and self-assured in his stature. No little-big-man disease, there. 

      "...and though (s)he be but little, (s)he is fierce."

      I see you added a photo.  Can you embed them into the blog post?

      The first one really looks like a collage.

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.
