The suburbanization of the United States continues.
The movement includes the Millennials, who proved not to be suburban. -
Hate city dwellers.
Most of this generation represents a strong global trend.
They may like the city, but they prefer the suburbs.
They continued to migrate to the suburbs.
According to the latest census bureau statistics, 25-to 29-year-
Older people are about a quarter more likely to move from the city to the suburbs, and vice versa.
Millennials are more than twice as likely as millennials. Their future —
And the planet. -
Located around the city.
Hurricanes Harvey and Elma made it clear that, especially in the suburbs, the United States urgently needs better drainage systems to cope with the heavy rainfall caused by climate change.
They also made it clear that new, sustainable suburbs could provide advantages by expanding water-absorbing landscapes.
Housing affordability is a major driver of suburban attraction, historically and still more affordable, especially for the first. -
Timing for buyers.
However, millennial suburbanites want a new landscape.
They want space to breathe, but ignore the energy waste, visual monotony and social integration of post-war communities.
If the new suburbs meet the best priorities of this generation, the Millennium Habitat will redefine the everyday lives of all suburban residents, 70% of Americans.
How can technology, revolutionary design and planning change suburban life?
Climate will determine how to achieve environmental goals in specific places: solar energy in the sunbelt, for example, or advanced water management in rainy areas such as the Northwest Pacific.
Suburbs of the same age or size do not have the same potential benefits or needs.
Following are some ideas for building future suburbs into intelligent, efficient and sustainable living spaces.
Existing suburbs are developed to maximize the size of houses and plots. Some suburbs are often limited to aesthetics, such as lawn mowing.
These communities are also built around cars.
Many residential development zones offer small parks or playgrounds within walking distance, but require cars to reach larger entertainment areas.
In the new suburbs of sustainable development, housing and land are smaller-
Partly because lanes and garages were cancelled. -
Paving is reduced by 50% and the landscape is more flexible. The plant-to-
Today, suburban roads are much higher than urban roads, but the next generation of suburbs can do better in absorbing water.
There are residential and open community spaces between the teardrops. -shaped one-
Roads encourage predictable, safe separation of pedestrians and mobile vehicles.
New developments in the suburbs will take advantage of technologies such as automatic electric vehicles. （Stop at Sola-

Communities will share community conveniences, such as public access areas, delivery UAV ports, parking lots, etc. (
There is a wider shoulder on the road for up and down vehicles. -off)
Instead of private lanes and open public spaces.
Enterprises also like the location of the surrounding areas of the city.
This dynamic helps to reshape suburban traffic patterns, as many cars avoid urban centers.
As cars turn to renewable energy sources, emissions and road noise will be reduced.
In the short term, we should hope to see more efficient cars and car sharing.
The use of UAVs will reduce the need for many car errands. -
And their emissions: Because their air space is unrestricted, suburban communities are likely to be the first place to receive packages from Amazon-tested UAVs.
They are either hubs. -

Small and Medium Packaging-

It can be handled by current UAVs and transported to the coverage area when pulled by doors or shared cars. -offs.
In future suburban development, homeowners will order an automated car from a remote solar energy source through an application. -charging lot.
When a car approached, it would "talk" to a home: lights and other utilities were activated or turned off to improve energy efficiency.
Because these suburban dwellings have no lanes or garages, the front yard can be larger and dedicated to ecological functions or recreational activities.
Neighborhoods are more pedestrian friendly, with sidewalks and roads connected to open spaces and public areas.
Before we fence it up-off backyards.
In the future, we will have common places of entertainment or vegetable gardens.
Or they can be designed to share landscape features, such as forests, spring pools or wetlands, to help manage storm runoff and control floods.
When storms come, climate change has led to greater rainfall, and it is necessary to store all this water to prevent catastrophic urban floods.
Less pavements in suburbs mean that the ground absorbs more rain and snow, and less rain pours into the thick urban areas nearby.
Planners need to treat cities, suburbs and suburbs as a whole environmental and technological system, not as an independent unit, but as a region.
It is rare that such a profound change of vision for the future is so close to realization.
This view is the one to be adopted.
They find beauty in utilitarianism, and they know how quickly radical technology can change everything. -
Including suburbs where they want to call home.
