Lars Lerup - One Million Acres & No Zoning
Taking Houston as is his case in point, Lars Lerup's One Million Acres & No Zoning considers the suburban city beyond the discourse of mere urban sprawl to instead uncover its activators and forces. Lerup looks at the suburban city as a "black hole of recent urbanism", absorbing human energy and resources but seldom revealing the principles of its operation. Published by the brilliant AA (London).
