Kansas State University landscape architecture students have spent the summer of 2010 addressing these dilemmas through two projects: the Build a Better Burb design competition in Long Island, New York and proposals developed in partnership with five cities in the Kansas City First Suburbs Coalition.

The projects do not offer a panacea, taken individually or as a whole: rather they take a step in the right direction.< Less
