TACTICAL URBANISM

3 TACTICAL URBANISM A BETTER BLOCK Tactical Urbanism is when you transform an area for a brief period of time to see how the community would react to this transformation before implementing larger change.

TACTICAL URBANISM

A BETTER BLOCK Reynolds Ave, located in North Charleston is a corridor that once was thriving with businesses but now is dissolute with a high traffic count. In order to reactivate this community and to see how community members would react when planting, seating, traffic calming and crosswalk, along with food truck and local businesses, this Tactical Urbanism showed that this area is in need of these different item so it can become a vibrant area again.

TACTICAL URBANISM

EASY OR HARD Each student was responsible for collecting data to be used at a future date to help with our reseearch for the BRT. I was responsible for collecting which mode of transportation was easy or the hardest for the community; car, bike, walk or bus. They were ask to place a red or green dot beside their choice, red represented the hardest and green represented the easiest.

THE MODEL The class produced a model that represented Reynolds Ave. This model was used at the event as an interavive component. The community was ask to place the cars, trees and bike lane where they would like to see it in the future on Reynolds Ave.

11 COMMUNITY DESIGN BUS RAPID TRANSIT Charleston is introducing the BRT which is a 23 mile long bus route from Summerville, SC and ending at the Medical district in Charleston, SC. We were given a bus stop location in order to design a TOD around the bus stop. We were charted to research data, visit the community, and choose case studies to help support our TOD. My location is Hackemann Ave, previously Stromboli Av.

HACKEMANN AVE BASE PLAN Hackemann Ave is located in the Union Heights community, it is the center point of the community. This area is one of the oldest African American communities in North Charleston. The previous stop was on Stromboli Ave, I choose to relocate the location due the proximity of the surrounding areas.

WAGES BY RACE The chart shows how wages are different with race. Union heights is proximate African America with 80% of the homes are rental property. Low wages, rental community equals a dying community.

DESIGN STUDY

19 DESIGN STUDY NEW YORK CITY In April, we went on a class trip to New York City to study the urban environment. During this trip, we studied how Urban Designers used their surroundings to help with their urban fabric. I used this time to to study different items I found helpful in learning the design fabric.

DESIGN STUDY

FLOWERS The flowers hanging out a pot was an intrusting study. It details how space can be controlled. The dimensions were approximate, I measured using my body parts for information.

TEXTURE Different types of textures can create a great urban feel. This was concrete seating and brick. The seating was meant to anchor under a tree for shading.

21


DESIGN STUDY

SEATING: PLAN AND ELEVATION A chair sitting in a park, I called this the “school chair” considering that is where they are normally located. It was not very large and not for everyone. Urban seating should include all.

A FENCE Not exactly sure why this caught my attention, it was old and the details were interesting.

THE MARKET I challenged myself by measuring the entire Charleston Market, during the summer. I found that the streets were not equal, each side was somewhat different. This is due to the historical nature of Charleston.
