dc.description.abstractDue to several factors such as the excess of the urban sprawl or low density construction, Tucson suffers from certain homogeneity that makes difficult to discern its particular essence. Conversely, we may find a considerable number of cities‐Las Vegas, New York, San Francisco, Rome or Venice among many others‐ that boast about its acknowledged identity. Key investigation will uncover the factors that generate some of these unique identities. Subsequently these assumptions are then compiled in a design agenda that will generate a design project applied to Tucson. Beyond the search of a plain answer the research produces a method of investigation that provides the capacity for designing urban environments with the physical essential qualities that define the identity of a particular place. The research is based on direct observation, aerial and ground level photography and synthesis maps of several case studies.
