Examining The Measures Of Street Connectivity In The American City And Their Interdependencies As Applied In Practice, Dawn Haynie Jan 2016

Examining The Measures Of Street Connectivity In The American City And Their Interdependencies As Applied In Practice, Dawn Haynie

Art and Design Faculty Publications

This work expands much of the preceding research on the measures of existing street networks and provides a foundation for continued study of urban morphology in the American city. It provides a definition for categorizing street networks based on their morphological characteristics, and it uses the categories to demonstrate inconsistencies in the interdependencies of the measures of street connectivity. In summary, it argues that the simple measures of the elements in a street network, those of road segment length and block area, are not as powerful a descriptor of street connectivity as some of the more complex or composite measures ...


Syntax And Parametric Analysis Of Superblock Patterns, John Peponis, Chen Feng, David Green, Dawn Haynie, Sung Hong Kim, Qiang Sheng, Alice Vialard, Haofeng Wang Jan 2015

A particular kind of street network is examined, where strong differentiation between scales of syntactic structure is evident: supergrids of primary roads, with inserted local streets. Computational formulae are provided to describe simple regular systems and clarify the nature of the syntactic differentiation of scales. The focus is on the linear extension of streets and also on distances measured according to direction changes. A small sample of examples from Chicago, Los Angeles, Beijing and Seoul as well as the Doxiadis plan for sector G7 of Islamabad and the Perry-Whitten neighborhood plan for New York are also analyzed, leading to estimates ...

Inter And Intra Buffer Variability: A Case Study Using Scale, Dawn Haynie Jan 2015

Inter And Intra Buffer Variability: A Case Study Using Scale, Dawn Haynie

terms of their structural street properties, measures of scale or density, and proximity to the metropolitan center (Cervero and Gorham, 1995, Crane and Crepeau, 1998, French and Scoppa, 2007, Handy et al., 2003, Jacobs, 1993, Peponis et al., 2007, Southworth and Owens, 1993); yet beyond the established and distinctive structures of these neighborhoods, few have analyzed, in depth, the variability in their measures. This study randomly samples 4,321 localities from the 24 largest American metropolitan areas and describes a method using the measures of length and area to evaluate the variability both between and within these localities. Calculated as ...


Structuring An Interdisciplinary Studio: A Study Between The Disciplines Of Art And Design, Dawn Haynie Jan 2014

Structuring An Interdisciplinary Studio: A Study Between The Disciplines Of Art And Design, Dawn Haynie

Art and Design Faculty Publications

Given trends in practice that lean towards an interdisciplinary approach, structuring a studio course, which allows for communication and exploration, is critical to ensuring our student’s success.


The Atlanta Streetcar: An Analysis Of Its Development And Growth As It Relates To The Core Cognitive Structure Of The City, Dawn Haynie Jan 2012

The Atlanta Streetcar: An Analysis Of Its Development And Growth As It Relates To The Core Cognitive Structure Of The City, Dawn Haynie

Art and Design Faculty Publications

the spatial structure of the city of Atlanta has shifted significantly as the city grew. It emerged from a pattern of colliding grids, which bridged the railroads, and an analysis of these early maps illustrated a centrally located area of dense street connectivity distinct from the spaces that are more easily accessible in terms of direction changes – where direction changes describe cognitive rather than metric accessibility. As the city grew and additional clusters of higher local density emerged, each isolated from the other, a multi-centered city was established with ever increasing fragmentation of the Directional Reach structure.Eventually, then, the ...


Atlanta: A Morphological History, Dawn Haynie, John Peponis Jan 2009

Atlanta: A Morphological History, Dawn Haynie, John Peponis

Art and Design Faculty Publications

In this paper we report an analysis of 118 urban areas sampled from the 12 largest metropolitan regions in the US. We deal with familiar measures of block size, street density, intersection density and distance between intersections. We also introduce two new variables, Reach and Directional Distance. Reach is the aggregate street length that can be accessed from the midpoint of each road segment subject to a limitation of distance. Directional distance is the average number of direction changes needed in order to access all the spaces within reach. We provide parametric definitions of these variables and implement their computation ...
