City of Madison

The City of Madison proposed that we study Recreation improvements in six urban Parks through a Design Studio (D 5) at the School of Architecture UF, along the Fall Term 2016. Students and Professor did a site visit hosted by the City. Following the first visit the studio produced ideas and recommendations for the 6 parks. After considerations regarding the six proposed parks, the studio conducted a second visit focusing on developing ideas and proposals for the three most transformable locations, showing potential for future growth: The Lanier Field area, the Lake Frances and Downtown area, and the Jesse Solomon Park. The studio proposals can be interpreted as the creation of a menu of possible options to be considered from a medium term perspective.
