dc.description.abstract This study presents a comprehensive overview of pedestrian mall design and associated criteria. The pedestrian has, over time, been removed as the most dominant form of street life by automated and mass transportation. Cities are attempting to solve this dilemma. Several cities have renovated lengths of street to pedestrian malls in the hopes of drawing people back to the downtown environment. Detailed looks at selected case studies provide several relevant criteria including programmed activities, the need for some form of vehicular access and large retail diversity. The criteria were utilized in the design of a pedestrian corridor in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, in conjunction with the renovation of the Louisville Galleria. Two site designs were performed based upon the criteria to provide multiple solutions for the selected site. While the solutions presented represent the work of one individual, others may have a very different approach to the same problem.
