Infinite Suburbia is the culmination of the MIT Norman B. Leventhal Center for Advanced Urbanism's yearlong study of the future of suburban development. Extensive research, an exhibition, and a conference at MIT's Media Lab, this groundbreaking collection presents fifty-two essays by seventy-four authors from twenty different fields, including, but not limited to, design, architecture, landscape, planning, history, demographics, social justice, familial trends, policy, energy, mobility, health, environment, economics, and applied and future technologies. This exhaustive compilation is richly illustrated with a wealth of photography, aerial drone shots, drawings, plans, diagrams, charts, maps, and archival materials, making it the definitive statement on suburbia at the beginning of the twenty-first century.


Alan M. Berger is the Norman B. and Muriel Leventhal Professor of Advanced Urbanism at MIT, and founding codirector of both the Norman B. Leventhal Center for Advanced Urbanism and the P-REX Lab at MIT.

Joel Kotkin is the presidential fellow in Urban Futures at Chapman University in Orange, California, and executive director of the Houston-based Center for Opportunity Urbanism.


Celina Balderas Guzman is an urban designer and planner, an environmental urbanist, and a research associate at the Norman B. Leventhal Center for Advanced Urbanism at MIT.
