The built environments represented are grounded in my current home of Portland, Oregon. This location has also informed the aspirational challenges to meet in the game.
Five typologies are represented in the piece of the game. A “skyscraper”, towering over the other pieces, to represent the density of an urban core. “Mixed Use” mid-rise represents 2-4 story buildings, like the ones populating Portland’s Northeast and Southeast neighborhoods, like Alberta, Mississippi, North Williams, Hawthorne, Belmont, Division, and Burnside. “Residential”, depicted as traditional pitched-roof single-family homes, may represent any type of residential areas, at a density of a typical city block. Two types of open spaces, “Vacant Lots” and “Park” are to be used as flexible, transitional spaces that meet needs of Challenges.
