urban design, airspace ultization
This thesis is an investigation into the analeptic potentials of airspace utilization in urban areas. The study emphasizes airspace utilization as a dynamic locational catalyst for urban revitalization, and has two fundamental purposes. The first is to attempt to clarify the relevance of using airspace as a tool for pursuing efficient and effective use of the limited and valuable supply of central city land. And the second is to pursue a catalytic process for obtaining socioeconomic goals through the multiple use of transportation rights-of-way. In the final phase, these concepts will be briefly elaborated in a case study applied to the Pleasant View Village, Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
