RARITAN VALLEY TRAIN LINE RESEARCH, 2019

This research is my contribution to a collaborative land use and zoning analysis along the NJ Transit Raritan Valley Line that identifies the complexities that arise when conducting “pre-design” field research to determine the site and program for an architectural project.

 

Using zoning maps as a departure point, I use mapping techniques to explore the intersectionality of land use with transportation infrastructure, property value, neighborhood demographics, and commuter behavior patterns. The collaborative research conducted by this SoPA graduate architecture studio provided a refined assessment of site conditions, functional programs, structural systems, environmental impacts, and cultural precedents to inform individual student projects.
