dc.description.abstract With this project I attempted to counteract the wasteful use of resources and ineffi cient, automobile-dependent transportation network of a conventional suburban area just outside Evansville, Indiana. My research explored methods for incorporating multi-modal transportation, sustainable infrastructure, and the preservation of natural features into the site’s redevelopment. The resulting framework plan, master plan, and site design solutions express the function and aesthetics of a more healthy and unique suburban community that maintains and enhances the existing homes and commercial buildings. With this project I tried to suggest how this and other suburban areas might become more beautiful, more walkable and bikeable, and more sustainable overall.
