Optimizing Suburbs of the Future

How might North American suburbs overcome challenges driven by their lower-density, car-centric development pattern?

The Next Optimized Generation of Autonomous Suburbs (NOGAS) is a scenario-based parametric modeling tool designed for spatial planners, urban designers, land developers, and municipalities to integrate emerging mobility technologies into new urban forms, and plan and build for the future.

New Cities, a global nonprofit committed to shaping a better urban future, hosted a series of virtual learning sessions - one of which featured DUSP's Alan Berger - to explore how a suburb of the future might achieve sustainability goals for people and the environment.
