Research and Publication
Our primary mission at ConnectOakland is to begin a conversation about how to ameliorate a long-standing injustice and how to build our future infrastructure in a way that is just, resilient, sustainable and benefits all of us. Secondly, we look beyond the Oakland context to share our research and participate in the wider conversation of how to move our cities from automobile-centered monocultures to resilient centers of multi-modal mobility and polyvalent design and economy.

A team of planning and design students from across the country researched the impact and potential of the I-980 corridor during the intensive 3 week Berkeley [IN]City 2015 program. While we hope to share their observations and suggestions in detail in a future post, we’re posting their final presentation here for background reference. Special thanks go out to Aysegul Akturk, Alex Fox, Ivana Rosas, Carrie Sauer, and Manali Sheth for their intense effort and for allowing us to share their work!
