New Suburbanism is an urban design movement which intends to improve on existing suburban or exurban designs.[1] New Suburbanists seek to establish an alternative between a dichotomy of the centripedal city and centrifugal suburb,[2] by features such as rear-loading garages and walking-focused landscaping.[3]


Comparison to New Urbanism[edit]

New urbanism, though a small movement, is more successful than New Suburbanism, as NS only has 1 location and NU has hundreds.
