    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017) Dagenhart, Richard ; Debo, Thomas N. ; Hong, Fenghuan ; Ling, Tianqi ; Xue, Bowen ; Stephen, Sam ; Rickles, Carly ; Khandekar, Tejas ; Zha, Yilun ; Vijaynnand, Karen ; Alz, Maryam ; Dodson, Christy ; Dickenson, Coston ; Choi, Jiho ; Yao, Zeyue ; Zhang, Wenyue ; Majid, Moutushi
    An urban design studio conducted jointly with the Georgia Conservancy for the Victory Square Neighborhoods in Savannah, Georgia. The neighborhoods were under mandatory evacuation orders when Hurricane Irene in 1999 approached. Luckily, the hurricane passed by without damage, but the neighborhoods realized for the first time that they were vulnerable. The studio address both storm surge and sea level rise and their impacts. The critical issue was the Truman Parkway, a grade separated highway, that had disrupted the historic natural drainage and the historic Casey Canal. Urban Design proposals were for various alternative to retrofit or remove the Truman Parkway to deal with future flood events.

    Mission Zero Corridor Project
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014) Brown, Lindsay ; Carroll, Elizabeth ; Cioffi, Will ; Dhingra, Sarthak ; Duncan, Rebecca ; Shams, Sammy ; Kelly, Imeri ; McClary, Cierra ; Tertichny, Melissa ; Dagenhart, Richard
    The Blueprints team was asked to examine the 16-mile stretch of Interstate 85 in Troup County, Georgia dedicated to Ray C. Anderson in 2014, in honor of his outstanding achievement and the legacy he left for his hometown of West Point, and for the rest of the world. An interstate highway was used to honor a true environmentalist. But, how can a piece of infrastructure, that is inherently unsustainable and a large catalyst for environmental pollution and degradation, truly begin to commemorate Ray's legacy and his pursuit of sustainability? That question serves as the design challenge presented to the faculty and students in the Georgia Tech Scho0ol of Architecture Design and Research Studio by the Georgia Conservancy and the Ray C. Anderson Foundation. Instructor was Richard Dagenhart, Professor Emeritus, Georgia Tech. Studio Managers were Elizabeth Ward, Kevin Bacon, Cassie Branum, Ryan Gravel, David Green, and Jeff Williams from Perkins + Will.

    Lessons from Ten Cities
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010) Presley, Gabriel ; Piatkowski, Robert ; Perko, Claire ; Ali, Najia ; Johns, Gavin ; Beza, Beza A. ; Bacher, Emily ; Wilkinson, Luke W. ; Bush, Dereth ; Yu, Jianqiu ; Perez-Carro, Carlos F. ; Einarsson, Amber ; Ciccone, Sarah ; Spaht, Holden C. ; Herndon, Joshua ; Fuson, Ellen ; Mooney, Amanda ; Radomski, Kirsten ; Herndon, Joshua ; Dagenhart, Richard
    This project focuses on the primary ingredient of urban form: the subdivision of urban territory into public and private domains (or public and private usage in some situations). Every project in existing urban cores - urban design, building or landscape - must understand the arrangement and dimension of lots, blocks and streets and their relationships to pre-existing ecological conditions, prior human occupation, previous interventions, political imprints and cultural desire. It is these relationships that irrigate this basic urban form with architecture and landscape potentials. Ideally at least one member of each team will have visited the selected city. The research must be accomplished quickly - realizing that the internet plus the library will have substantial information about each city. The documentation and analysis of each city will be presented in common format and graphics in three parts. First is the urban form in the city’s regional context, which may be geographic, topographic, ecological, political or some combination of those. This should reflect an understanding of the reasons for its location and its origins. Why was the city developed there in the first place? Second is the urban form itself, in three scales: 15K x 15k area of the urban core to show the primary urban form; a 7.5k x 7.5k area showing the urban core itself and its primary form characteristics, and a 1k x 1k area of blocks. The identical scales will allow visual comparisons among the five cities. Third will be a series of diagrams, illustrating the major design moves that created the distinctive urban form for each city. This might be understood as retroactive urban design - looking backward and then rebuilding them in sequence, based on your interpretation of the city's formal history. The conclusion of these diagrams will be a composite.

    Atlanta Braves Baseball Stadium Redevelopment: Stadium Neighborhoods TAD
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010) Dagenhart, Richard ; Green, David ; Chapman, Jutin ; Burtoyan, Hrach ; Chapman, Justin ; Hawthorne, Dane ; Kellog, Kristin ; Smith, Taylor
    An urban design studio and research project advising the City of Atlanta and the Atlanta Braves regarding proposed redevelopment of the site of the Fulton County Stadium and Turner Field. The site was within the boundary of the Stadium Neighborhoods TAD (Tax Allocation District) which provides tax increment financing for infrastructure and public purpose projects. The primary aim of the project was to prepare a decision framework and an illustrative plan for the stadium parking lots for future commercial development, housing and deck parking for about 5000 spaces to serve the Braves on game days and conventional real estate demands. Of particular concern was weaving the project with the surrounding neighborhoods, which had long been impacted by urban urban renewal, parking overflow into neighborhoods, and lack of community services and jobs. The project became moot after the Braves left Downtown Atlanta for the suburbs. However, the City of Atlanta adopted the report as the basis for a Request for Proposals for public/private entities to acquire the Turner Field Stadium and parking lots for other uses. The site was awarded to a private developer in partnership with Georgia State University’s expansion and athletic facilities. The report was also the basis for a Neighborhood Benefits agreement between the surrounding neighborhoods and the Georgia State/Developer partnership.

    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009) Dagenhart, Richard ; Yang, Perry Pei-Ju ; Cambeul, David ; Duong, Binh ; Hussy, Heather ; Kovacheva, Maria ; Thorn, Robert
    An urban design studio focused on the Westside of Downtown Chattanooga. sponsored by the City of Chattanooga. The studio project had four priorities for which urban design was to provide a framework for the Westside. First was to examine alternative to the grade separated Highway 27 that divides the Westside from Downtown. Second was stormwater management with the aim of reducing or eliminating combined sewer overflows from the Westside into the Tennessee River. Third was to extend the Riverfront Park to and along the River on the Westside, incorporating existing industry and weaving a future mixed-use industrial zone. Fourth, and finally, to explore options for future development of housing and commercial projects anticipating the impact - aesthetic and infrastructural - of the new riverfront park and extensive green infrastructure to define an expanded public domain.
