I wrote/filmed/produced this video as a final project for an Urban Geography course at the University of Victoria titled, "Interpreting the Suburban Landscape." Accordingly it is focused on investigating how Transect Theory would inform the planning and location of urban and suburban forms in the Capital Regional District of Victoria, British Columbia.
