From an exceptional thesis by Tom Vigar, Sheffield University, which twins the intent and forms of the suburb with those of the military.
From InfraNet Lab –
Caught somewhere between No-Stop City and an Everyday Virilio-ism, Tom Vigar’s Master of Architecture thesis “Subtopian Dreams” at Sheffield University posits a shared economy (and landscape) of suburbia and military sites. Arguing the inevitable links and interdependence of one with the other, they could share the same territory in a cyclical symbiosis. Suburbia thrives on the technology transfer offered by the military, while the military conveniently hides behind the false front of oh-so-innocent suburbia.
