Students are encouraged to work within the gray rectangle of the small retail shopping strip. Infill models available from Google SketchUp are provided on separate panels 'to the east' of the working model. These smaller component models may be copied and pasted, or students may create their own models. The key to this assignment is envisioning how an existing built environment which represents various social and economic values of land users (customers, citizens, students, shopkeepers, building owners, etc.) could be changed to increase the diversity or amount of users.
Use of the Google SketchUp tutorials is recommended prior to beginning work.
Good luck! #commercial #extra #redevelopment #scenarios #student #suburban
