Vertical Suburb

A Smarter Typology For Growth

The speed at which land sprawl is developing in the Salt Lake Valley and beyond led me to search for a new typology that would provide the amenities of the more popular option (the suburbs) within the footprint of the more responsible option (density). I explored live/work opportunities, urban agriculture, and refugee initiatives, as well as mixed-income housing, low-income housing, and opportunities to grow-in-place.
