Three Car Garage

One thing is very clear in suburbia – the car dominates.

A two car garage is no longer sufficient these days.  New houses feature garages for three or more cars, and even then there is often another car parked in the driveway.  There is a pattern to what is parked in the driveway too – an SUV or minivan (or both), a mid sized sedan or truck, and a compact.  Nearly every house has one of each.  It’s never all SUVs or all compacts, etc., but one of each.

So you don’t have to leave your car – there is the drive-thru.  For banks, restaurants, coffee, fast food, and almost anything you need.

Shopping centers have their own entrance/frontage roads.  I was discussing this project with an editor/curator friend of mine and she said “you need to include more photos of people in this.”  I said I want to, but nobody is out walking – not even from one end of the shopping center parking lot to a store a little further down – they drive across the parking lot.

The routine is – home-car-work-car-shop-car-food-car.  Never let you feet hit the pavement… or the grass
