sketchup model of housing mix

Urban Design for Planners 4: Mix and Proximity

The purpose of this course is to evaluate land-use diversity in a neighborhood, propose design interventions that would support and enhance a healthy mix, evaluate distances between where people live and what people need, and propose design interventions that would help increase desirable proximities. Students will find areas with different kinds and levels of mix, and then propose design strategies for areas of low housing mix. They will then compare areas for access to the most desirable facilities and places and propose corresponding infill strategies.
