Undergraduate Honors Thesis


A theoretical study of certain precedence from New York City begins to describe urban conditions including 1) density and congestion and 2) circulation. A further study elaborating on the existing High Line, located in New York, is thus analyzed and studied through the architectural perception of image and experience in congruence with the Pyramid and the Labyrinth. These studies of urban conditions and prudential observance of significant city designs are later shown on the influence of the future New York City Block completed in Studio Design VII. A narrative, strategies in designing, and conditions played off with previous theoretical studies present itself to show the way occupants and different scales of space interact within the block and the city as a whole.
