Master’s Project
Urban Voids: A Potential in Tucson’s Wasted Spaces


There is no logic that can be superimposed on the city; people make it, and it is to them, not buildings, that we must fit our plans.
  – Jane Jacobs

With the resurgence of a highly anticipated urban downtown center, there is a growing need to propose newly designed activity areas to maximize public uses and facilitate public movement. The integration of undeveloped urban space into larger planning efforts can foster and respond to this growing need. Through that principal, how then can urban voids, or wasted spaces, be leveraged to provide an accessible and integrated urban landscape design? The structure of my project seeks to address the previously stated question by providing a broad set of goals that have been formulated based on literature and case reviews.
