Jason Griffiths presents ‘Manifest Destiny” a guide to the indifference of suburban housing

“Manifest Destiny,” selected by the Los Angeles Times as one of the 10 best architecture books in 2011, began as a sabbatical research/lecture tour of suburbs in North America.

“Suburban homeowners maintain a steadfast dedication to the suburban ethic,” said Griffiths, a partner at Gino Griffths Architects. “The relentlessness of suburbia may at times be disturbing, but it is equally compelling, and it is hard not to be impressed by the manner in which this realm propagates itself through the rules that bind its devotees.”
