What will our towns look like? What will the transportation systems be? How will the existing infrastructure be incorporated or abandoned in the post-petroleum landscape? Where will our building materials, food, and other commodities come from, and how will they get from point ‘A’ to point ‘B’?The fourth-year Traditional Architecture and Urbanism design studio is currently investigating possible answers to these questions as they propose brownfield town developments to replace suburban sprawl in Chicago’s northwest suburbs.
