Citation: Chang, Shenglin. 2004. Can City Lifestyle be a Catalyst for Smart Suburban Change? A Comparative Investigation into How Asian and Latino Immigrants' Prior Urban Experiences, and American's Prior Suburban Experiences Can Inform the Future Planning and Growth of Maryland Suburbs. College Park, MD: The National Center for Smart Growth Research Education and Department of Natural Resource Sciences and Landscape Architecture.
Abstract: The research investigates how Asian and Latino immigrants’ prior urban experiences can inform the future planning and growth of suburban communities in Maryland. The investigation of Maryland immigrants’ various built environment (dwelling, landscape, neighborhood, transportation mode) preferences will result in a set of ecologically appropriate and culturally sensitive design guidelines that will help shape the future of the rapidly growing suburban communities.
