On the Right Track: Reinterpreting the Abandoned Railway In the Arbutus Corridor With Mobile Architecture
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis proposes a mobile architecture that moves along an abandoned rail system in Vancouver to provide its neighbouring areas with improved access to amenities and to provide a sense of uniqueness to the Arbutus Corridor. This investigation addresses the corridor’s urban value and uses design to test how mobile interventions may enrich the Arbutus Corridor for residents. Re-using existing railway undercarriages, it proposes nine new vehicles that travel along the corridor and serve as catalysts for urban events throughout the year.
