The studio continues to engage in precedent analysis and the deployment of precedent tactics into Public Square. The students are testing the tactics of precedents of varying scales and scopes, including the following: Central Park (NYC), La Villette (Paris), High Line (NYC), Steel Cloud (LA), Millenium Park (Chicago), Downsview Park (Toronto), Kahn's Philadelphia Traffic Studies, Rockefeller Center (NYC), Piazza d'Italia (New Orleans), Loyola Law School (LA), University of Virginia, and 1933 Century of Progress Exposition (Chicago). Some of the studies can be viewed in various posts below. More should be posted soon.
Students will execute one more round of predecent analysis, research public space altering technologies, and then commence the re-design of Public Square. Initial designs will begin to be posted and discussed by the end of September.
