The current design for the Urban Research Park calls for a more integrated design concept with a complete remediation of theLURP site to eliminate the possibility of further contamination.. Existing axis’ that flow directly into the site are kept through the site as well as the elimination of the diagonal pedestrian corridors that disected the site. The pedestrian corridors arePlan replaced with green corridors lines with plant material and trees that create a haven for the employees of the site as well as patrons to the commercial sector. Along Wilson Avenue is commercial that will be convenient for the neighborhood residents. The shotgun houses opposite of the smaller commercial buildings along Wilson Avenue with later be sought for development as professional offices while keeping the historic architectural integrity of the houses. Industrial building types are placed closer to the neighboring industrial districts and the adjacent railroad. These buildings are applicable for use by many diverse companies that seek to find a prime site near the University of Louisville as well as within clear sight of the everchanging downtown of Louisville.

Gosselin Residence This sustainable design incorporates a contemporary design for a modern home. Living green roofs and permeable pavers in walkways reduces the affect of run-off as well as absorbing energy from the sun. Two social areas are created keeping in mind the downward sloping front yard of the house. Lining the walkway with trees and creating turns makes the experience one that is more interesting and intimate for the owners and visitors walking to the main entrance to the house. Greenroof allows for this modernhouse to reduce its carbon footprint. The entire roof will reduce water run-off to a minimum. 5 12 Front of house is vegetated to help reduce the cost of heating and cooling since 2 the front of the house is in 12 facing south and gets direct sunlight most days out of the year.
