Abstract

Author evaluates Ford's typology of commercial strip evolution by applying it to Phoenix. She finds that Ford's classification of eight architecturally distinct strips does explain the evolution of three commercial strips (McDowell Road, Camelback Road and Bell Road). However, a fourth strip (Mill Avenue) is considered to represent the emergence of a ninth type : the Neotraditional Strip, where everything new is made to look old in an effort to reinvent the Main street. - (SLD)
