We present research on the integration of network model and visual analytic paradigms to understand structure effects in urban design decisions on Charleston peninsular. Our goal is to consider the physical environment and social dimensions simultaneously. The architectural brief is a conceptual urban infrastructure proposal for the Clark Parkway site on Charleston Peninsular that directly confronts issues of occupation, circulation, form, and access to downtown facilities. Combining the efforts of twelve designers of architecture and landscape, with a consulting team of city planners and transportation engineers, we develop a taxonomy of location property, physical connectivity. This taxonomy constitutes preliminary network model heuristics for dynamic assessment for in urban design settings.
