1 An Urban Encounter: contemplating the pedestrian experience Erik Palmer Schmahl LAR 510 | Blazquez | Fall 2013 College of Architecture + Planning + Landscape Architecture The University of Arizona

5 GOAL: to embrace the genius loci of the site by using familiar materials and forms, but rethinking and dramatically contrasting the banality of the urban landscape to invoke both wonder and contemplation. Is there room in pedestrian corridors for adventure? Is the common engineered solution a design failure? Is there excitement in walking the urban landscape?
