"The formation of cities and urban communities is a natural process that develops over time. The formation of suburban communities is the opposite of that. The architecture of these communities directly reflects that idea. This thesis investigates what, architecturally, creates these perceptive differences and thus, is responsible for the current day migration of millennials from the suburbs to downtown. This thesis is an attempt to create an urban center in the suburbs that evokes an idea of a lasting sense of place in order to bring the millennials back to the suburbs."
