Great Streets and Gateways

Great Streets and Gateways > Reconnaissance

Reconnaissance and Precedent Analysis:

Students worked individually to conduct research activities to better understand the context of design problems under consideration by the studio.

There are three goals associated with this assignment:
  • To understand the major development issues/problems found both in our study areas and in similar areas elsewhere.

  • More broadly: to understand the relationship between movement systems, urban form, and the socio-economic health of the neighborhoods and regions they connect.

  • To identify development approaches to these issues that might lead to a more socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable condition in our study areas.

Students conducted their research in three areas: case studies, spatial analysis, and theory.
