Kathy Poole's research takes many forms. Some is traditional text and image analysis.
Other work is case based, explicating innovative and landmark examples
in the built environment. Much of the research is completed through "doing,"
through drawing, painting, and making through various media. And the Back
Bay Fens project attempts to craft new research methods using digital
technology; using historical and contemporary maps linked to a robust
database, the project demonstrates how we might approach urban design
as an historical process and the city as an evolutionary endeavor. See Publications
for some of the research outcomes. For more research projects, see More
