Building Typologies for Urban Design

Translating a “community’s vision plan” into an urban design plan requires research, analysis and design of multiple building types and their placement into underutilized lots and blocks. Building types are conceptualized in order to comprehend their scale, character, placement, function and aesthetics in the streetscape. These building are inset with various computer programs. We study each type to understand the specific characteristics and program of how the building functions.
