Abstract
This thesis was inspired by the ingenuity

of the inhabitants of the Florida Avenue

Market, in Washington DC. Through

small scale iterative design solutions

and creative use of public space the

residents, street vendors, and small

business owners in the area have

reinvented their urban condition. Using

extremely limited resources, they have

created a unique vibrant urban market

that provides economic, social and

cultural value for their neighborhood

and the city.

Recent political and economic pressures

are causing the market to go through

a major transformation. This project

will propose an urban design vision for

the next evolution of the market which

aims accommodate the expansion of

Gallaudet University, while celebrating

the unique character of the place and

dignifying its current users.
