Urban Lab 1: Coding to Accommodate New Development in an Evolving Neighborhood


Using transect- and form-based coding methods, participants in the charrette-style lab developed strategies to balance positive redevelopment with the protection and enhancement of adjacent neighborhoods. They also investigated the spacing of "nodes" to encourage streetcar ridership while serving the interests of the community.
