   YSOA Urbanism Studio - Bridgeport Parks (4.5 weeks)   Group masterplan and model: Kiana Housseini, Sin Hsu, Charles Kane, Sarah Kasper, Katie Stege, Justin Oh, James Kehl, Anna Meloyan, Madelynn Ringo, Xiao Wu  The history of Bridgeport is heavily rooted in industry with its obsolete remnants still acting as iconic and monumental symbols of the city. In the late 20th century, Bridgeport is increasingly remembered for its relationship to regional infrastructures, such as Interstate 95 and the Northeast train corridor. One of the challenges facing a resilient future Bridgeport is adapting and rethinking its infrastructure which today creates problematic urban conditions—severing neighborhoods, disrupting pedestrian access, and polluting the air.  By re-imagining three infrastructural and industrial conditions—Bridgeport’s factory, railroad, and highway—as a series of programmed parks, a new flourishing public realm can be created out of the ruins of the old.
