2003 Hines Competition Finalist – University of Pennsylvania


“The X-Concept”

Team 1688
University of Pennsylvania (UPenn)

The “X Concept” is a reinterpretation of L’Enfant’s juxtaposition of diagonals over an urban grid. An X-shaped intersection marks M and South Capitol streets, forming a landscaped park that reintegrates the neighborhoods of the quadrants of the study area. Development along the four axes emanating from this center will catalyze revitalization evenly across the entire South Capitol Street community.
