Industrialization and the automobile are actually the biggest factors in the last 100 years.
"The American Institute of Architects and the American Planning Association recommend against [suburban] sprawl and instead endorses smart, mixed-use development, including buildings in close proximity to one another that cut down on automobile use, save energy, and promote walkable, healthy, well-designed neighborhoods." (Wikipedia) In other words, the clustered housing scenario I mentioned above. Urban living while maintaining protected natural areas is a good thing as well; population density (relative to land use) in these scenarios is good not bad. That sort of development has to be driven by demand, and by developers sensitive to the issues. Demand will only come from education.
None of this is about criticizing, it is about ecological education, smart urban and suburban planning, local food, retention of farms, retention and restoration of habitat etc. and it is a dialog which is vital to have for all of us. I now live on a standard 1/4 acre lot--what I can do about that is remove the lawn and replace it with habitat. Nice site: http://content.yardmap.org/
"Over 40 million acres of non-native lawns cover the US. That's almost the size of Wisconsin." So the point is shifting the way we defined all this in the 1950s suburbs; it doesn't have to be that way; conditions have changed; we can come up with better plans at every level and every environment (rural, suburban, urban); good for us, good for the planet, good for our descendants.

Thank you Andrea for answering this question.

I apologize to those that are offended by my stock answer with our photos. We have posted them to help people get ideas for their homes. However, most of our clients don't like the details of their items being out there (where/cost/color). I try to include the interior designer in my responses so they can be contacted as they know the details on the jobs when it comes to color and decoration items. Thank you again for your interest in our work and we hope it can help you inspire to create your dream home.
