The Case Studies

This chapter includes a number of case studies that demonstrate a variety of plug-in urban design types. It begins with examples of infrastructure design at the citywide level. This set is divided into two parts: (1) where the infrastructure has preceded building and (2) where it has been plugged into an existing built environment. The second set of case studies deals with infrastructure design at the precinct level. It is subdivided in the same manner. There is only one example of the third set which deals with plugging in specific building types into a precinct to act as catalysts for development. It is included as a note rather than a case study because its impact is yet to be seen. It is the case of the use of schools as infrastructure elements in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
