This student work borrows the ideas of architect Sim Van der Ryen in which he acknowledges that there exist patterns in nature replicated in the built environment. Oftentimes, these patterns, as seen in street networks, open space, and development density, produce function, movement, and characteristics felt in the spatial attributes of the Madison-MLK corridor. Producing processes in street patterns such as "constriction, viscosity, erosion, and cascades," it is through these relational configurations and points of opposition that we may understand the spatial morphology of the area.
