Washington D.C. Urban Analysis and Design - Part Three

The following is the third in a four part series of projects which was part of a five month long design process.

    The project sought to take the classical garden designs with the surrounding blocks from the previous two parts of the project and transform them into figure-ground diagram drawings where the figure (black) is seen as resting on the ground (white).

In this way, pathways and coaxial boulevards and spaces are the ground, while the buildings, bosques of trees, partiers, gardens and forested areas are the figures which define the ground spaces. These abstracted figure-ground diagrams were then transformed into blocks, with major and minor streets, and public spaces connected to the streets and private defined spaces within the figural blocks.
