JNEM and P-I

This set of diagrams compares the JNEM and Pruitt-Igoe sites.

 

The largest building footprint at JNEM is a parking garage.  Pruitt-Igoe is dominated by two schools.

 

 

Barriers define the edges of each site.  JNEM much more porous than Pruitt-Igoe.

 

The paths and roadways at JNEM bear little resemblance to traditional forms found in the city.  Circulation at Pruitt-Igoe is concentrated on the edges.

 

 

Each site is an urban forest.  At Pruitt-Igoe, the forest is eccentric to the site; at JNEM, the plantings intended to evoke a forest appear symmetrically arranged.
