Abstract:
As our southwestern cities continue to grow in essentially uncontrolled and sprawling patterns it becomes increasingly apparent that new planning approaches and design guidelines must be generated to rectify past and combat future problems. Today, many community developments focus decision making principles on purely economic gain at the expense of addressing the socio-cultural, aesthetic, functional, economic, and environmental issues. In an attempt to address these issues, we employed both qualitative and quantitative methods of research. The qualitative methods included: a case study analysis of past, present and future communities; a literature review of past communities and new theoretical movements; structured interviews with real estate developers in the southwest; and participant observation encompassing peer dialogue and design reviews. The quantitative methods included statistical analysis of questionnaires given to designers and developers practicing in the southwest. A series of design and planning guidelines were distilled from this research. They were then tested by applying them to the design of a new community in the southwestern United States.
