This session covers the history of urban design and street design when traditional streets and highways adjusted to Modernism. The industrial revolution and introduction of motor vehicles changed street design dramatically. Understanding the past is vital to changing the emerging policies of design practice when the future challenges us all. Recently, there is a better understanding by engineers that street designs play a vital role in shaping the urban environment. Even the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Green Book is moving to more diverse Context Zones for design.
