CRP Students experience Abbeville SC as part of CRP 8220 Urban Design class

April 11, 2019

During 2019 Spring semester as part of CRP-8220 Urban Design course taught by Dr. Enrique Ramos-Santiago, the students and professor researched, documented, and visited the town of Abbeville, South Carolina.  Abbeville was established by French in 1764 and was incorporated in 1840. Visitors are drawn to the City’s significant Historic District which boasts dozens of 19th Century Homes and turn of the Century Architecture. The town serves as a quintessential example of urban/regional planning and basic urban components during colonial times, and maintains elements still relevant in the 21st century. It proved to be an ideal setting to conduct sketching and measuring exercises of essential public realm archetypes (streets, squares), architectural and building typologies, and urban design strategies and patterns.
