In order to make his analysis of the built environment along the MLK-Madison Corridor, this student borrowed the ideas from Aldo Rossi's The Architecture of the City in which he talks about the "artifacts" in the city. Artifacts are urban elements that posses a value in themselves but also a value dependent on their place in the city.
The typology study is an attempt to classify according to a general type, but here he associated the type also with its use. While the morphology is the nature of the built form, in this case he associated it with its level of density. He translated all that in a single colorful image in which the frequency of density and building heights along the corridor is visible.
