Abstract
This urban thesis proposes the restructuring of a small railroad town that concentrates on vertical growth, publicly shared urban spaces, and the distinction between town and country. A new organization of building types reflects the modern lifestyle of the town which focuses on the integration of school and community activities. Boundaries are used as barriers to prevent horizontal sprawl.
