Using Environment as a Framework for Urban Design

  1. 1. USING ENVIRONMENT AS A FRAMEWORK FOR URBAN DESIGN IN USME An Environmental Analysis, Critique of Metrovivienda’s Plan and Recommendations for Design Intervention
  2. 3. EARLY RESEARCH
  3. 10. Key Points <ul><li>Statement: I have been interested in investigating the environmental conditions of the site in Usme, using that information to critique Metrovivienda’s Plan and develop Urban Design recommendations. </li></ul><ul><li>On Growth: Growth will happen, though the demand for housing 250,000 can be addressed in different ways. </li></ul><ul><li>Critique of Metrovivienda: One of the many of problems with Metrovivienda’s plan is that it does not consider certain social environmental conditions such as the existing agriculture, the ecological areas, and risk zones. </li></ul><ul><li>Thesis: The Metrovivienda plan does not address important environmental and social conditions, therefore I have developed a set of strategies and tactics to approach the issues. </li></ul><ul><li>I propose that the majority of the 250,000 people are placed in other parts of the city and that only certain areas in the site in usme developed. </li></ul>
