ARCH 202A: Architectural Design II Gallery: Environmental Design – Site and Context

Equitable Diversity

The project focuses on addressing the idea of serving the future of Burbank as a human-centric city, specifically discussing the topic of recognizing programmatic and ecological diversity for the citizens. Concerning with an ever increasing human population and the climate issue Burbank will face in presumably 100 years, microclimates are attached in various locations within the site to ensure a bidirectional relationship between humans and their surrounding environments. Connecting with other superblocks with a secured tram system, along with an underground train system, ensures the availability of pedestrian and vehicular traffic across the site for people of all ages.
