Abstract
Urbanmorphology is the evolutionary process where urban centers experience growth or decline due to series of changes and events or changes leading to events. This thesis came about due to an event that has a big impact on an urban environment, a military base on a large swath of land was closed and the property became available for development. Closed military bases provide us with opportunities to accelerate urbanmorphology, to simulate the organic evolution of an urban center and to explore urban and architectural ideas that, otherwise, are very difficult to test. The results could be used as models for adaptation in other, less expansive and more restrictive applications. This opportunity allows us to address today’s constituencies using today’s technology, attempt to define our era and hopefully help in defining the future exactly as the past helped in defining ours.
