The single family detached house with a manicured front lawn is synonymous with the suburban American dream. In the suburban Connecticut neighborhoods adjacent to adjacent to Mohegan Sun casino, Chinese casino workers have transformed these single family homes into multifamily communities, and many front lawns have become places to grow vegetables, socialize, park cars, hang laundry, and even dry fish. Guest curator of SUB URBANISMS: Casino Urbanization, Chinatowns, and the Contested American Landscape, Stephen Fan, unpacks the origins and implications of these interventions to the suburban single family house and what they mean to our prevailing norms of beauty, order, and socio-cultural ideals of home.
