Moving Forward

Back to School

This is a quick update to let you know that after many months of anticipation, I’ve finally begun my Master of Architecture degree at the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning. I’m currently enrolled in 16 credit hours, and as such, I probably won’t have time to update the Metro Cincinnati […]

Over the past few days, I’ve uploaded pages pertaining to the project background (including a brief history of rail transit in Cincinnati, and case studies of the Washington Metro and Portland Streetcar systems), rolling stock, and some concluding remarks. Links to these pages are on the menu bar to the left. With that, the final […]

Station Architecture Pages Posted

I’ve uploaded the pages describing the Fountain Square transit center, Corryville station, and Highland Heights station. Fountain Square, at the intersection of the Red Line, Orange Line, Gold Line, and Green Line, is the primary transit hub of the Metro Cincinnati system and the gateway to downtown Cincinnati.
