It was an exercise in rethinking auto-dominated spaces without compromising DOT standards of functionality. We worked with the City capital boulevard of Raleigh as a hypothetical client and met with them often to discuss our design ideas. Model-building and the beginning stages of analysis were done in small teams and the remainder of the work was done individually.
