Design with values
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of this thesis is to use potential greenway values to guide the design of a future North Oconee River Greenway extension. This is done by first outlining the potential values that greenways can provide, including economic, ecological and social values. The history of the North Oconee River Greenway is then summarized from its early beginnings to the present day. The history and current conditions of the site of the future East Athens Park Extension are then detailed in order to identify potential values that could influence the design. Finally, value-based design recommendations are then made and a concept plan for the site is presented. The goal of the thesis is to create a method of value-based design that can be used for the East Athens Park Extension, future North Oconee River Greenway extensions, and greenways and greenway extensions in general.
