About the Book
The over arching goal of this project is to develop a sustainable urban living prototype for Tucson. A prototype that approaches sustainability across an array of dimensions: economic, environmental, cultural, aesthetic, and functional. We hope to encourage development within the existing infrastructure of downtown Tucson through the
revitalization of many unrealized / underutilized amenities spread throughout the area, i.e. Brown field remediation, River riparian restoration, and dense mixed-use walkable infill.
For the past twenty-seven years the Tejido Group has developed interdisciplinary and collaborative applied research programs in which faculty and professionals in Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Planning work side by side with University graduate and undergraduate students in an apprenticeship-style professional learning environment. We are also an international experience and have collaborated on projects in Europe, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East, and the United States.
