The book is a product of a collaborative design research project at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) School of Architecture and Planning, and sponsored by Japan’s Sekisui House. The research was initiated to envision, program and develop design directions for prototypical sustainable residential communities in the years 2030-2050. Much of the discourse about the design of sustainable communities and ‘eco-cities’ has to date been premised on using previously undeveloped land. In contrast, this project and resulting publication focuses on the retrofitting of an existing environment – a more likely approach, given the extent of the world’s already-built infrastructure.
