Integrating Habitats*

“Growing Together” is an award winning response to the Integrating Habitats competition sponsored by Metro, a regional planning agency. The proposal responds to the challenge of integrating Oak Savannah habitat into an established single family neighborhood by addressing the spatial design and policy frameworks.This is a concrete example of innovative design strategies that focus on incremental land use transformation through increased diversity, conservation and human scaled solutions. The plan illustrates how a block, neighborhood, community, landscape could regenerate; becoming more environmentally, culturally and economically sustainable and at the same time provide higher quality habitat, house more people, require less infrastructure and consume fewer resources. *AECOM competition.
