Urban Design Principles
In this studio, we are investigating a large swath of land in south Providence.This neighborhood was attractive to industry and waves of immigration shaped the mix of institutional, industrial and residential uses. The diversity of uses still exists in this neighborhood, which is dominated by the RI Hospital. And 90% of the site are used as parking lot now.
So our goal is to reimagine and redesign the whole area. Through a seriesof exercise including researching, mapping, masterplanning, housing unit, welearned how to consider each design process at different scales. Step by step, our design for the site should bring back vitality to the neighborhood.
