Potomac Yard: Land&Event(scape)
Publication or External Link
This thesis proposes a reconciliation of the principles of three prevailing urban theories as a means for establishing an urban design taxonomy that appropriately responds to the site of Potomac Yard, Alexandria, Virginia. This thesis proposes a 98 acre master plan that is wrapped with constructed wetlands and incorporates an elevated metro line. The master plan tests the appropriate relationship between city and landscape as well as the extent to which an event-scape should impact the city.
