The North Boulder Arts District is an existing cultural hub in north Boulder, CO. What could it be like in the year 2100? This project is a Master Plan for the area, presented in book format. It was a group project consisting of several phases: research and analysis of the area (including stakeholder and SWOT); precedent research and visioning exercises, diagramming and strategizing urban design and form, and presenting the intervention through renderings, diagrams, and book pages.
Personal contributions to the project include all work on this page: 3D renderings, Site Map, Book layout design and content, and urban design model of "node and connections" throughout the North Boulder Arts District.
