another assignment for my urban design practicum.
How will you create an active, public realm at the case study site? (see preliminary concept map drawn up after writing this.)
Little Italy is a lively little neighborhood in San Diego. It is relatively pedestrian-oriented compared to other communities in the city, and hosts several street festivals every year. Much can still be improved, however, to create a more active, public realm in the historic neighborhood. I suggest implementing “complete streets”, pedestrianizing a strip of India Street, and displaying more public art to create a more human scale street environment.
