LINEAR CITY: RAPID TRANSIT AS A DETERMINANT OF URBAN FORM. A STUDY BY THE DEPARTMENT OF ARCHITECTURE

The purpose of the study was to forecast and describe some of the physical planning implications of implementing innovative types of public transportation in the Dallas-Ft. Worth region. In this context, the authors have sought to document conclusions about some of the physical implications of the use of rapid transit to structure new forms of urban development and to depict impressions of the increased quality of life possible in these transit-structured communities. The study approach consisted of developing generalized concepts for structuring new urban growth based upon transit, and then particularizing these concepts by applying them to specific parts of the Dallas-Ft. Worth region.
