Abstract

Four sites were selected for the Atlanta competition for new American Public Space: an entrance/exit ramp, a parking lot; a street and traffic island, and two street intersections suspended over an interstate highway. How many times in Atlanta, or other cities in America, are these sites repeated? Where highway and city interact, new types of urban sites are generated with particular attributes of scale, space, and speed that are both specific yet generic. Our project set out, not to find an individual solution for each site, but rather to equip the streetscape with utility and informational services, street furniture, and surfaces to support the informal and everyday events typical of places where cars and pedestrians mix.
