Jefferson Neighborhood Studio
This site analysis and proposal for the economic revitalization of a central Eugene, Oregon neighborhood began with an initial studio deliverable that included a 1" = 50' axonometric base map assembled from about ten separate nine-block areas, with each area delineated by a different student.
I choose to work with an area that included a the neighborhood's school building, and then walked the streets to sketch my impressions of the site.
This led to a highly detailed drawing, accurate down to the canister count on utility poles, which the University later ended up featuring in a neighborhood open forum invitation.
I continued working with this area through the policy and planning phase of the project, in which I created proposals for a new community center, community gardens, and infill housing.
