Lambert, Ross Lee
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores typical development patterns in American suburbs and proposes a new model, fostering a sense of community and serving as a catalyst for more extensive social changes. It proposes shared spaces and spatial gradients to create continuity and integration between the public and private realms. The project is a master plan for a new mixed-use development, including the design of two housing types. The design focuses on open spaces and how they relate to one another as well as the private residences. The selected site is in Bothell, WA, where the city is actively seeking proposals as part of its downtown redevelopment master plan.
