UDES 501

This project proposes a new urban prototype for the City of Surrey, which is experiencing a huge increase in population and is slated to become the most populous city in the Vancouver region within 50 years. Adding density to the existing fabric and improving the transit system are priorities in the city. The site is one of the many typical auto-oriented communities within the city, occupied by single-family houses and large parking lots. The project proposes a various strategies in order to turn these places into green, walkable, vibrant, and diverse communities.
