Living Streets within Downtown Fargo: A Living Street that Focuses on the Pedestrian, Environmental, and Social Design Elements in Downtown Cores
More InformationShow full item record
With downtown Fargo continuing to change with new multi-use buildings and parking garages, the focus should now be on the streets. Over the past couple years there has been multiple parking garages built within a mile of downtown Broadway. The question then came to me, was the street parking necessary and what could the street scape look like if the parking were removed. This thesis is to create a potential model for a living street scape in dense downtown city bodies. The design focuses on pedestrian, social, environment aspects of the street. These design aspects will provide opportunities for the community to be part of as well as the businesses located along the street to shape the landscape in front of them. This done through including multiple sidewalk zones, permeable elements, and modular components to create a dynamic landscape. The experience of downtown Fargo will be alive and growing alongside the thriving architecture.
