So we're working on this really cool infill project for one of my planning classes and I've been getting into the sketching thing. I know you can't really tell what the illustrations are but they have to do with a new bridge we are proposing for an area of Charlottesville that needs revitalization. The bridge is going to connect the old Martha Jefferson hospital to the new MJ hospital on the Southwest area of the county. We're hoping to make the bridge pedestrian and bike friendly, to create a riverwalk area that would draw in nice restaurants and shops, to preserve the residential area near the bridge for affordable housing, and to encorporate progressive homes and shops with green roofs, etc.
Soon I'll have a new sketch that will be a better demonstration of exactly how we propose our new vision for the area. It should be a fun project!
I haven't posted any pictures in a while, which is most of the reason why I started this blog. I'll hopefully have some soon since we're going hiking in the morning off of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Yay for fall!
