HIGHWAY ESTHETICS-FUNCTIONAL CRITERIA FOR PLANNING AND DESIGN

THE FUNCTIONS AND UTILIZATION OF ESTHETIC CRITERIA IN THE HIGHWAY DEVELOPMENT PROCESS ARE EXAMINED. HISTORICAL PRECEDENTS FOR, AND CONCEPTS OF HIGHWAY ESTHETICS ARE REVIEWED. VISUAL PARAMETERS FOR PLANNING AND DESIGNING HIGHWAYS ARE IDENTIFIED RELATIVE TO A RANGE OF DISCIPLINES AND ARE EVALUATED FOR RELEVANCE. BASIC CONSIDERATIONS FOR DEVELOPING A PROTOTYPICAL METHODOLOGY WHICH INTEGRATES VISUAL AND BEHAVIORAL CRITERIA ARE PRESENTED, AND DIRECTIONS FOR FURTHER RESEARCH NECESSARY FOR COMPREHENSIVE DEVELOPMENT OF QUALITATIVE VALUES IN THE PLANNING AND DESIGN PROCESSES ARE RECOMMENDED. /AUTHOR/
