The Farmington townscape plan retrofits a suburban five-lane commercial arterial into a multiway boulevard. Townscaping employs a serial organization of nodes to create a walkable urban environment within an automobile-oriented context. Townscaping proposes an incremental urbanism without reliance on capital-intensive architectural investments. The goal is to evolve a memorable, or articulated, town fabric through three placemaking strategies: 1) context-sensitive highway design, 2) public art planning, and 3) agricultural urbanism.
