The Design Workshop team spent last weekend exploring the streets of the Chinatown neighborhood collecting inventory of the existing patterns of movement, infrastructure conditions, and utilization of the study area. The team was out in full force with clip boards, temperature gauges, tape measures, and light meters! Here is a list of some of the data they collected:

  • Vegetation and tree conditions
  • Pavement conditions
  • Drainage patterns
  • Sidewalk use and pedestrian circulation
  • Bicycle and vehicular circulation
  • Parking and loading use
  • Social nodes
  • Light meter foot-candle readings
  • Places of art and cultural expression

This week the team returned to the studio to analyze the data and will report back to ASLA with maps and diagrams to paint a picture of the site conditions. Stay Tuned!
