Dwight Healthy and Just Neighborhood

The Dwight Healthy and Just Neighborhood pilot is a collaboration between the Yale Urban Design Workshop, community leaders in New Haven’s Dwight neighborhood, and Yale faculty and students. The project will research, design, and deploy a pilot Dwight Healthy and Just Neighborhood web portal, which will provide a “thick” multimedia environmental-justice-history-based portrait of the neighborhood.

Seaside Village Sustainable Master Plan

In 2010, the Yale Urban Design Workshop began working with Seaside Village to create a sustainable master plan to address the 21st century needs of the early 20th century neighborhood.  Issues with water, parking, and streetscape led the Village to seek the assistance of the YUDW to develop a series of interventions that could combine storm water mitigation strategies with new streetscape and landscape elements compatible with the Village’s historic architecture and plan.  
 

DesignCase Lindholmen

DesignCase Lindholmen was an initiative undertaken by Fusion Point in collaboration with the Yale Urban Design Workshop with the goal of modeling best practices in the development of design concepts and processes for sustainable, resilient, and inclusive urban design. The next phase of development of the Lindholmen area of Gothenburg was taken as a case study, although one important goal of the exercise was to consider any particular site at scales ranging from the building, to public open space and infrastructure, to the entire River City development zone, to the City and its region.

Thames River Heritage Park Plan


The Thames River Heritage Park Plan, prepared by the Yale Urban Design Workshop in 2015, presents a new, innovative, streamlined strategy to establish Connecticut’s first state heritage park. Now being developed in the Thames River estuary, the park was first envisioned by planners more than 50 years ago to celebrate the rich historical and contemporary engagement between Groton, New London and the Thames River. Today plans for the park are moving forward with community support and enthusiasm, and with the YUDW plan providing the blueprint.
