Abstract or Table of Contents

This book is a compilation of research and design by students of the senior architecture class at Carnegie Mellon University . The projects illustrated herein were developed as part of two urban design studios. They represent the results of an educational process aimed at teaching accountable design in regards to an existing urban fabric. A great deal of time and effort was spent in order to provide solutions that were based on the real qualities of the environment and the community, yet as with most educational models some issues were idealized to allow for an efficient exploration of the process. As a result, the solutions included herein should not be viewed as professional strategies for development, but rather as a source of inspiration for further study and future planning.
