Abstract
My thesis is an urban intervention into the small town of Blacksburg, Virginia. The ideas and explorations of this project are derived from the placement of a canopy over the Main Street of the downtown. The thesis addresses the existing energy and essence of the town, while introducing the external object of a canopy and a grid to establish a level of order and unity for the area.
