UNIVERSITY + LEAD
This project was an accomplishment by collection. An area of 1500â€™x1500â€™ was diagrammed. Included in an overall class effort, students including myself focused on finding information that can potentially be useful and noted it through diagram. Information involved included existing bicycle boulevards, landuse, natural systems, open space, road hierarchies, surface parking, proximity to a school of higher learning, and private property. The above topics were chosen based on personal and societal relevant importance, such as parking within a city, bicycling as a form of reducing carbon footprint, landuse necessities and order, higher education and accessibility, private property, existing greenery within the chosen area, and road hierarchies showing the most populated roads.
