My fascination with exurban sprawl and development started in 2007. Twice a month I would go north of Los Angeles into an area known as Antelope Valley to work. The growth of these outlying areas was at a rate that seemed unsustainable. “How many more people could need or afford homes in these nether-world regions surrounding Los Angeles,” I would ask myself. My questions were answered with the financial crisis that soon hit the world. It was unsustainable. It will continue to be this way unless we start putting thought and care into the unrelenting expansion that seems to be an inherent need of the human race.
