Abstract

Many theories have been proposed to improve urban living conditions, but still they do not manage to solve these urban problems. In order to develop a model that can fill this gap, parameters for urban designs have been formed here using various readings and case studies. These are summarized in the thesis research to develop the design model. After selecting a site in Chicago and conducting analysis programs are proposed taking into account research parameters and the context around the site. These programs are studied and demonstrated in the site in the form of a design model. The design incorporates the previous study of parameters and integrates various theories on future design models into a proposed solution. This proposal is a model demonstrating the need to incorporate a wide array of parameters while designing the built environment. The model is referred as `an integrated approach to the built environment', where the research conducted for this thesis on various design theories is taken into consideration.
