Revitalizing a federal-assisted housing community
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores possible methods to revitalize the outdoor environment of a federal-assisted housing community. The revitalization process focuses on two aspects—the connections between the federal-assisted housing communities and the surrounding neighborhood, and the outdoor environment of these communities. Based on the knowledge of relevant literature and cases studies, this thesis suggests possible design approaches for revitalizing a federal-assisted housing community. These design approaches are examined through the design application for the outdoor environment of Bethel Midtown Village. Diagrams and images are provided to better explain the ideas in this thesis. Finally, this thesis concludes that improvements in the connections between federal-assisted housing communities and the surrounding neighborhood, and improvements in the outdoor environments of these communities are important for the revitalization of federal-assisted housing communities.
