Alleyways: Fragmentation and Connectivity

by Hilary Clark

Location: Between 15th Ave. & University Way

I chose to explore alleyways around the University District in terms of how the fit into everyday urbanism as separate spaces and as corridors. Through my own exploration and referencing a few of the readings, I hope to capture how alleys function outside of the normal realm (deliveries and dumpsters). I believe they function as alternative pedestrian routes and as individual and discrete outdoor spaces.

Micro Urbanism

The term “micro-urbanism” describes small-scale urban spaces and design interventions that enable a wide variety of activities, events, processes and functions to take place. It also involves ways to reinterpret the urban landscape. As a class project, the purpose for creating this Guide is to bring attention to aspects of our everyday environment that are important but often neglected parts of the urban experiences.
