Next step in the Future City project:

Each of the groups will need to develop a broad-vision, city-wide massing diagram in SketchUp (no streets) – on top of a Google Map.

CITY-WIDE MASTER PLAN (MASSING MODEL)

This is small scale….something like 1″ = 2miles or greater.
It will include strategies for the following topics, expressed in color masses FOR ZONES that you make in SkUp.
CREATE COLORS SIMILAR TO THOSE IN THE COLOR CHART BELOW FOR
Urban massing plan (areas for buildings and streets – Existing and New).
Major transportation massing plan for long-distance and middle-distance (air, rail, highways, waterways).
Water massing plan – existing and new (ocean, rivers, lakes, canals, water treatment).
Energy – ideas within the city limits.
Parks and Agriculture within the city limits.

We will be working in the digital lab for the rest of this week and next week.
