Abstract

This project proposed improvements to roads, street lighting, pedestrian safety, and storm water management in Monwabisi Park, an informal settlement in Cape Town, South Africa. Through interviews, field observations, and researching similar redevelopment projects, we learned about infrastructure problems in that community. The proposed improvements are both feasible, and compatible with our sustainable, low displacement, community-engaged redevelopment philosophy.
