What “Retrofitting Suburbia” Offers For The Future Of Suburbs
As Chattanooga grows and changes in the years to come, how should its suburbs adapt?
What’s called “Retrofitting Suburbia” may provide a guide.
At Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Dr. Ellen Dunham-Jones is a professor of architecture - and directs the master of science in urban design.
Next week, she will discuss “Retrofitting Suburbia for Urgent Challenges” at the CIVIQ speaker series by Chattanooga Design Studio - on Thursday, February 17th at the Camp House, starting at 5 PM.
