Morgan State University. The Herring Run Project

  1. 1. Project: Green network to connect Herring run creek with Morgan campus Parent projects: Morgan MILE Morgan campus plan ENST 739, Summer 2012 36 hours with Herring Run walking, recording, gis-mapping diagramming, imagining
  2. 2. The Herring Run creek
  3. 3. photo sequence credit: sharma, a. top left to bottom right. Argonne rd to Stadium way
  4. 4. E Cold Spring Lane §  Access to Parking §  Existing side walk that needs extending §  Central to Campus §  Access to main thoroughfare, E Cold Spring Lane Criteria for selecting access point
  5. 5. Current Spatial Condition
  6. 6. Spatial Imagination BH
  7. 7. Argonne Road §  Existing path from previous construction §  Near a quiet corner of campus §  Access for public from main thoroughfare, Argonne Rd. Criteria for selecting access point
  8. 8. Current Spatial Conditions
  9. 9. Spatial Imagination BH
  10. 10. Current Spatial Condition
  11. 11. §  Sketch of looking up argonne rd access Spatial Imagination BH
  12. 12. Current Spatial Condition
  13. 13. §  Sketch of view from under argonne rd bridge Spatial Imagination
  14. 14. Context Map
  15. 15. Stadium Way Access Opportunities - - Centrally located on campus - Provides a more private experience for students - Existing pathway down to river Constraints - - Poor connectivity to main campus - Poor visual access from main campus - No unified sidewalk along Stadium Way Criteria for selecting access points
  16. 16. Current Spatial Condition
  17. 17. Spatial Imagination SE
  18. 18. Argonne Rd Access Opportunities Existing path down to river Access open for public to use Visual access from right of way Constraints Crossing Argonne Rd is a hazard Sidewalks cannot support pedestrian movement Poor visual connectivity to campus Criteria for selecting access points
  19. 19. Current Spatial Condition
  20. 20. Spatial Imagination SE
  21. 21. Access Points 1 and 2 §  Water is influential to society §  People draw people §  A stronger sense of community and safety makes a better built environment Criteria for selecting access points
  22. 22. Current Spatial Condition
  23. 23. §  Sketch of looking up argonne rd access Spatial Imagination SA

  28. 28. East Cold Spring Lane Rd §  Parking is nearby. §  This location already provides a steep trail to access the creek below. §  Once at the water elevation, the area provides nice views of the bridge as well as up and down stream views. §  With being near the road, there is some road noise. If no traffic is present, the area is quiet with the relaxing sound of water. Criteria for selecting access points
  29. 29. Existing condition
  30. 30. Spatial Imagination AC
  31. 31. Argonne Rd Pedestrian Bridge §  This access point provides a long sloped trail starting at the pedestrian bridge. §  Once at the creek, the area is very quiet and provides views of up and down stream. §  Wildlife can be viewed from this location. §  The current area next to the creek is wide and level. Less excavation would be needed at this location Criteria for selecting access points
