ANATOMY OF A COMPETITION:URBAN DESIGN FOR MILWAUKEE'S LAKEFRONT
Lawrence P. Witzling & Paul Farmer
This study explores the professional ideas and attitudes reflected in 140 entries to the 1980 Milwaukee Lakefront International Design Competition. Design ideas are evaluated and recommendations made for using the best ideas from different solutions. The report received a 1982 Award from Progressive Architecture for its innovative analysis of how design competitions can be better understood and used effectively. Reprinted in 1985.
Pp. 40; charts, plans, and high quality photographs
INTEGRATION OF THE HIGHWAY AND LANDFORM
Kent M. Keegan
This research stresses the artistic potential of the roadway through the introduction of formal design elements. Using landscape, median, spanning, roadway, and enclosure within highway planning and design, the design professional can introduce a new vocabulary to the process of highway construction. Presents a range of design possibilities which, when combined with the technological requirements of a highway system, can lead to a unique and identifiable "design aesthetic." Supported by a grant form the National Endowment for the Arts.

THE COSTS OF FACILITY DEVELOPMENT: A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTOR FACILITY DEVELOPMENT PROCESSES AND COSTS
Jeffery A. Lackney, Peter Park and Larry Witzling
Due to the concerns of public officials over the cost and quality of facilities, interest in understanding why public university buildings appear to cost more than private sector buildings is high. This monograph responds to these concerns by comparing cost, quality and time factors of selected public and private sector facilities in the State of Wisconsin to determine if private sector project development is less expensive than public sector project development, and if so, why.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD'S CATALOGUE: LOWER EAST SIDE PLANNING AND DESIGN FILE
Diane L. Abbott, Daniel S. Friedman, Michael J. Kerski and Edward F. Papp
This catalogue was designed to support the process of slow redevelopment over time, combined with conservation of diverse social and historical continuity the exploration of new land and building uses. The catalogue shows how to involve neighborhoods in participation, supportive design, incremental planning, and phased development. This project was made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Reprinted in 1987.
Pp. vi + 117; drawings, maps, plans and photographs
TOWARD URBAN FRAMEWORKS
This project is based upon a Case study of an existing urban environment in New York City. The history of this environment has been characterized by d succession of ethnic communities and the consequent creation of their distinct cultural landscapes, This suggests that important insights can be gleaned from this environment that are generalizable to the practice of urban design. These insights involve the creation of urban environments that are designed to accommodate change in cultural landscapes. In designing for such change, it is argued, new environments would be more likely to resist obsolescence.
