First Suburbs By Blake Belanger, Jason Brody
eBook (PDF): $0.00

Auto-oriented suburbs have been the dominant form of American urbanization since World War II. Because of their age and location in their regions, the earliest of these - the first suburbs - face a... More > unique set of dilemmas. 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 encapsulated in this book cover a range of ideas. Some are theoretical while others are concrete. Some are prototypes; others idiosyncratic. While they all address community-level concerns, many projects also operate at larger or smaller scales. Each proposal addresses multiple dilemmas facing First Suburbs, but no single proposal claims to solve them all. The projects do not offer a panacea, taken individually or as a whole: rather they take a step in the right direction.< Less

More > character who is trying to find his place in the world. An orphan in childhood, he latches onto his surroundings—the suburbs of Los Angeles—as a surrogate, afraid to leave home and lose his identity. Yet, finding nothing of substance around him, he forces himself to take small, safe journeys to places close by, such as Mexico, Las Vegas, and San Francisco, all the while searching for that part of him that he can’t find in his past, his friends, his lovers, or his neighborhood. Through a series of failures, self-examination, and a brief bout with insanity, he finally gathers the strength to clip the umbilical chord holding him to L.A. and begin the real journey of his life.< Less

ALL proceeds of this comic book will be donated to Warchild. You are buying a DIGITAL comic book. Download only, no physical product. “War in the Suburbs” is a short story (9 pages) by... More > Alex Williams (writer) and Kevin Storm (artist) and poses a simple question. What if the war was here? In simple yet painfully touching imagery Alex brings the war home. Having father and son Edo and Yuri as actors for this short story has proven more than worth the effort. In a few silent scenes and a few hard-hitting words, the story attempts to focus NOT on the gore, but on the humanity, or lack thereof. What happens to the people. What happens to their hearts and minds, without overanalyzing. Writer Alex deliberately does not pass judgement, keeping the real emotions behind it even closer to his chest. Leaving the reader asking the questions. And that, was the point. The story is available through this website, and the work and proceeds shall be offered to Warchild, a charity helping child soldiers worldwide.< Less

At different points in time, suburban areas have had to deal with the reality of crime just like other areas have had to. The reasons for the crimes that occur in suburban communities might be... More > different than the ones for crimes that occur in urban ones, based on context and the various niches that are involved. Pertinent to this issue of suburban crime are race relations, a misconception of suburban neighborhoods, and the level of strength of community safety. There are some who say social disorganization theory explains why crime occurs in suburbs, but in actuality, routine activities theory provides a more efficient argument as to why crime occurs in such areas. Join me as I briefly discuss some of the complex ideas associated with this major issue in society.< Less

The goal of the project is to design a train station that would adapt the features of modern conveniences for long distance commute offered in the metropolitan area (city) and the suburban region... More > while promoting the unity between the two. The means by which this transit location would serve to unify a city and a suburb will include the choice of material the station will be built from and the amenities offered on its premises, which would transform it into a landmark. The material itself is an integral part of this project. As the train passes through various regions of the vast spaces between the city and the suburb, it may be noted that the same material matter can be found composing different objects in the city and its suburb, drastically changing the outlook of the corresponding locations.The proposed station would combine the motive and the feel from the two locations by incorporating not only the choice of material but also its final exemplification in the real objects.< Less
