This was a student project by Jimmy Hughes for Jane Amidon's LARCH 253 course, Winter 2006. "In the face of disruptions, the capacity of a landscape to anticipate and react to change can be thought of as resilience (as per J. Fiskel). Disturbances may be immediate, singular and catastrophic, or dispersed, cumulative and gradual. Over time, a site gathers evidence of its past; close observation and documentation reveal patterns of land use inflected by moments of rapid or slow change. Together the long term impacts of the intentional (land use regimes) and the stochastic (seemingly random natural or human disturbance) shape the behavior of matter, organisms, flows of information and energy and other site currencies." ---- Jimmy Hughes This work is a part of the online collections of the Knowlton School of Architecture Student Archives, The Ohio State University. It is part of an effort to make accessible student work ranging from the first student that graduated from the program in 1903 to the present. This effort was sponsored in part by the Graham Foundation. Keywords: student work, KSA, drawings and plans, site analysis, pedestrian accessibility.
