Since it is a BLOG, feel free to write blog-style. Doesn’t have to be very serious tone. HOWEVER, PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS VERY CLOSELY! Thank you!
I.Selecting a Subject for Observation. There are three ways that an urban space or place may be transformed—say which you have chosen.
In my case, UC Irvine
A. A place or space changes function (e.g., a drive-in theater becomes a swap meet; a tire factory becomes a shopping mall).
B. A place or space maintains character (same function and physical design) but its surroundings or environment are transformed (e.g., a cemetery gets surrounded by an office complex; an old retail space is hemmed in by new development).
C. A place or space maintains character but its clientele is transformed (e.g., a church congregation goes from middle-class, native, and non-Hispanic to working-class, immigrant, and Latino; a restaurant-pub goes from working class to gentrified; a public park becomes a haven for drug deals, or for the homeless).
II. Showing How an Observed Change Reflects a General Social Trend or Event.
(Explain how the smaller change that you are documenting rests upon, or is nested within a longer and broader historical, economic, social, or cultural context.)
A. Embed your observation in a larger urban texture. Explain how your place of observation fits into the bigger spatial scheme. You’ll need to:
Characterize the general setting (development, or neighborhood, or district, or city, or region)—what are the neighboring places and spaces, and means of circulation?
Establish if the place being observed is typical or unusual within the setting.
B. Supply a historical dimension in which you excavate at least five years of back story that would otherwise elude direct observation.
C. Identify the drivers of (trends or events behind) place/space transformation.
Demographic: Immigration; population aging (an area’s children growing
up and moving away, parents or customers getting older).
Economic: prosperity, recession (which affect spending and investment)
Cultural: fashion, consumer tastes, technology (e.g., advent of cell phones, WiFi), which change how people use space
Infrastructure: opening, moving, or closing of a roadway, bridge, sidewalk, or of a transit stop, or the opening or closing of a large facility (a college campus, a military base, a shopping mall), which affect the volume of traffic
Historical events: crime, war, business cycle (see “economic” above)
Catastrophes: fire, flood, erosion, earthquake.
Cite at least two high qualities, third-party sources. A high quality source is: authoritative, trustworthy, has a clear public identity, and is accessible.
