Abstract: The thesis aims to reevaluate the sprawling development pattern that has plagued Sudbury, Ontario. Contrasting city-led regreening initiatives with poorly thought out and executed development, the project asks what would happen if development mutually supported both the environment and the community in the South End of Sudbury. Taking cues from New Urbanists, local environmentalists, and historians, the project will reinstate culturally significant architecture and introduce walkable urban infrastructure that prioritizes active modes of transportation. Building upon existing trail networks and considering the ecology of the commercial center of the South End, known as the “Four Corners,” a new village center will regenerate the underutilized space.
