Architecture, Urban context, Syracuse, City, Development
The resultant theoretical model was not the original theory, in total, of the author. Much is owed to the faculty and staff of the university, especially Kermit J. Lee, Jr., an advisor, professor and friend throughout my stay in Syracuse; and David J. Allor, whose friendship, advice, and tutelage made the task more cogent, and certainly more enjoyable.
One of the purposes of urban design is an understanding, a knowledge of the urban environment. The purpose of this investigation, a thesis is urban design, was to discover strong, recurrent patterns within the city relevant to urban design as a discipline. It was found that such patterns did exist, in the form of population-migration patterns.
A theory of urban development/redevelopment was constructed as an enhancement of the already existent social pattern, in an attempt to enrich the urban experience within the structure of an average large metropolitan agglomeration.
