The first precedent given to me was Lucca, Italy, a medieval walled city an hour outside of Florence. The tactics used in building and designing this city were to be studied and applied somehow to Steetsboro, Ohio. I looked at how the edge of the city could be defined better. In this study I looked at a natural path that would intertwine around the city, under and over roads as needed. It would serve to connect the neighorhoods, give a park space to the city and also define the edge of the city.
