Location: The township of Old Lyme, Connecticut . Undeveolped waterfront
The project proposes a new seaside town along the coast in the township of Old Lyme, CT. The project brings knowledge of regional history and regional urban design theory and architecture to a privately-owned, largely undeveloped waterfront site. It articulates building types based on regional precedents and uses a graphical urban design code to guide implementation. The design team strove to treat urban design and architectural design as one continuous and interconnected design process, from the regional plan to cornice moldings. The plan uses traditional urbanism and green techniques to achieve environmental goals and takes the tattered edge of the existing Old Lyme Shores, repairs and extends the urban fabric and creates a new defined edge.Read more at this project's website.
