    Retrofitting Suburbia's Missing Middle
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-05-04) Dunham-Jones, Ellen ; Bharadwaj, Aditi ; Doyle, George, IV ; Gao, Wanli ; Jassu, Joel ; Khalid, Emily ; Kroi, Eleni ; Kumar, Shreya ; Macbeth, Josh ; Wang, Jun
    What if affordable, missing middle scale intergenerational housing and retrofitted intersections were designed to address the loneliness epidemic, autonomous vehicles, climate change, and the shrinking middle class? Four teams of graduate students received stakeholder input on their proposals to each of these topics at the intersection of By Pass Road and Jackson Highway where Covington, GA meets Newton County. The proposals are intended to assist Covington residents and those with similar suburban intersections envision how they might be relocalized to be more community-serving.

    Downtown Atlanta 2041: Autonomous Vehicles and A-Street Grids
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-08) Dunham-Jones, Ellen ; Blakeley, Meredith ; Bonn, Sarah Jane ; Goldstein, Eric ; Huang, Shijia ; McMullen, Meghan ; Pang, Lu ; Payson, Mikhail ; Reeves, Blake ; Scott, Stacy ; Shrestha, Animesh
    Downtown Atlanta 2041 is a speculative look 25 years into the future at the opportunities available to build on parking lots and create a walkable network of Class A streets and distinctive neighborhoods around Downtown’s many assets. The design proposals are based on conversations with stakeholders, analysis of current conditions as well as bold assumptions about the future impact of autonomous vehicles. The work was produced by graduate students at Georgia Tech in the Master of Science in Urban Design, (MSUD) spring 2016 studio, under the direction of Professor Ellen Dunham-Jones in the School of Architecture in the College of Design.
