UDL Concludes New Rochelle Study
The Urban Design Lab (UDL) announces its most recent publication, titled Alternative Futures for New Rochelle: The Next Generation Live/Work City. This comprehensive urban study was sponsored by the City of New Rochelle in order to help devise alternative spatial strategies for a series of development clusters located in its downtown. The project proposes to transform New Rochelle from a mainly commuter community into a thriving and resilient live-work city. The 200-page report is the culmination of two interdisciplinary design studios at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) and Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS), representing the collective work of 73 graduate students and 16 faculty members.
