In this issue of AD, guest-editors Ilka & Andreas are scanning the latent potential of Suburbia for radical architectural and urbanist proposals. Featuring case-studies and project prototypes from ten different countries, the issue manifests the universal status of suburbia as a global condition while giving emphasis to local specificities.
