Abstract

The purpose of this thesis is to address the issues that are faced in the built environment in regards to the way that cities are shaped by dependence on the automobile. When a city is developed with the primary concern of automobile accessibility; human accessibility and experience become neglected. Using statistical data on public transportation ridership and auto dependency trends, the design will find a solution to the lack of human experience in urban landscapes that have been designed for the automobile. Therefore, the design solution puts forth the human experience, and strategically plans for changes in automobile density and usage trends. The design will also address future use of the building as automobile usage changes and different uses are required.
