dc.description.abstractThis thesis is an examination of the morphological aspects of future growth in Telluride, Colorado, a 19th - century mining town in the Rocky Mountains. Its aim is to demonstrate that further expansion of this grid settlement can occur in a manner that establishes a morphological continuity with the existing context. The first three sections document a method of observation and analysis of the town's past patterns of growth and existing morphology. This method relies in part on firsthand observation and the study of available documentation of the town. The final section contains the design projections -- my recommendation about how the town could expand. These are presented as a site plan that illustrates the physical form of expansion, and supporting diagrams and design studies.en_US
