Title: Inhabit: Densifying Phoenix
Author: Legatt, Christopher
Abstract: Do you want to spend more time traveling on busy roadways, spend more money on gas, and spend less time with more important things like your family and friends? More suburban sprawl means more time driving on the roadways, with more gasoline usage. When school, the grocery store, the local coffee shop, and work are miles away from each other, what do you think the sensible solution would be; increasing urban density. Growth and sprawl are expensive and drain capital budgets and tax dollars. Growth and sprawl are inherently harmful to the environment. Growth needs to be confined to developed areas already served by public facilities and mass transit. Growth and sprawl consume land and spoil natural landscapes. The design intention is to target households, and recent college students that would enjoy the opportunity to embrace the downtown environment. Space that has been restricted only for automobiles have now been transformed into spaces that can be occupied with one another. As residences fill up more pods (siblings) will be created throughout the city to create a family throughout the city.
