Connectivity and the Reuse of Existing Infrastructure
to Develop the Public Realm and Contribute to Placemaking

Connectivity in urban design is defined through three separate aspects: physical connectivity, social connectivity, and ecological connectivity. This thesis brings new ideas and questions to the debate around the topic of adaptive reuse and place-making, and how new types of connectivity can be introduced in urban areas, specifically the Parkland Walk in London.
