[re]imaging Urban Expressways

2012 Studio

This studio explores the feasibility of reimagining freeways in six North American cities: New Orleans; Washington, DC; the Brox; New Haven, CT; Toronto, ON; and Montreal, QC.

Conversation about highway removal are in different stages in these cities. For instance, in Washington, DC, planners are developing a vision for removal, while New Haven officals have made the decision to pursue removal. The range of conditions and stages of the projects has allowed the studio to work to address a variety of solutions and potential outcomes.
