When parents observe their children in play or join with them in child-driven play, they are given a unique opportunity to see the world from their child’s vantage point as the child navigates a world perfectly created just to fit his or her needs. The interactions that occur through play tell children that parents are fully paying attention to them and help to build enduring relationships. Parents who have the opportunity to glimpse into their children’s world learn to communicate more effectively with their children and are given another setting to offer gentle, nurturing guidance. Less verbal children may be able to express their views, experiences, and even frustrations through play, allowing their parents an opportunity to gain a fuller understanding of their perspective. Quite simply, play offers parents a wonderful opportunity to engage fully with their children.
Memory in a way is bringing back of cultural history. As pointed out by Lindbladh individual and collective memory is enigmatic, fragmented, intimately connected to our senses and feelings and thereby in need of an alternative epistemology, challenging traditional definitions of knowledge and truth. In the introduction to the anthology The Poetics of Memory, Thomas Wagenbaur defines memory on the one hand as storage and on the other hand as a story. In the agreement with current trends in memory research, he underlines the importance of the narrative and poetic dimensions
The definition of the concept of Cultural Heritage has developed with history. At present, it doesn’t end at monuments and collection of objects.

Postcolonial writing has concerned itself specifically with the recuperation of lost history. Cultural Memory studies is that burgeoning field of study which provides the important tools for understanding and ultimately deconstructing the configurations of nationalist and imperialist power embedded in the representation of the past which takes cognisance of the visceral experiences and the memories of resistances of the oppressed through generations (Gandhi 92). ‘Culture’ is a veritable social construct that is usually understood in and through the contents of its traditions—its modes of action, forms of language, aspirations, interpersonal relations, images, ideas and ideals. ‘Memory’ is the capacity to remember, to create and re-create our past. The substance of our very being is memory, our way of living is retaining reminders; articulating memory is our raison d’etre.
It contested the professions and the way it was taught. It turned away from conventional architecture and proposed more adaptive architecture that would accommodate the emergent needs of its users through a rebellious style in an age heavily influenced by pop- culture and Dadaism. It redefined architecture and embraced a criteria o perishable yet indefinite, multifunctional space that was applied to new city models. It emphasized a vital support to culturally changing mechanisms of the city and not simply functional organization of space. The radical ideas experimented with spatial, creative, political and consumer freedom that surfaced in the 1960’s.
Children’s literature has highlighted that “The Garden” permits the child to enter into a new world and escape from their current lives. The children in children’s literature are viewed as the protagonist and in the garden, children can relive themselves of any fears and responsibilities. Secondly, “The Garden” symbolises security and allows the child to create their own world in the naturalistic setting of the garden. Beck (2003) highlights the positive impact the garden has on the children and allows the child to create their own fantasy world without the assistance of an adult figure. This creates a sense of freedom in the child in the purist setting.

(127). All of which indicates that our brain will forget memories which are not use; from there society inclination to records. Societies have different ways to maintain the memories that form their identity. Assmann divides them into two groups those of “cultural formation” and those of “institutional communication”, in the former he includes “texts, rites, monuments” and in the latter “recitation, practice, observance” (128). The first educates, the second regulates, and both have the double function of preserving, and to reminding individuals of the past.
Proshansky in his work "The city and self-personality" (1978) characterizes place way of life as : “those dimensions of self that define the individual’s personal identity in relation to the physical environment by means of a complex pattern of conscious and unconscious ideas, beliefs, preferences, feelings, values, goals, and behavioral tendencies and skills relevant to this environment”. As a brief, Proshansky 's definition suggests that physical situations impact self-identity as an aftereffect of the association between a person and
Ancient Rome better known as Caput Mundi, (the capital of the world), is situated in central Italy was founded on 21April 753 BC by two brothers, Romulus and Remus. Rome has been a dominant empire throughout the age of time and its influence on the modern world is still in manifest. One of the major driving forces that aided the Romans in maintaining their power was the phenomenal architectural principles that their structures possessed throughout the city of Rome. The Romans applied three elements in which was used in order to perfect various elements such as their architectural structures, concrete, vaults and arch’s.

Situated in historically marginalized racial minority and urban communities it results in the impoverished community being ill-prepared to compete in neoliberalism’s rules of engagement because such communities have little economic, social or political power. The remainder of this essay will address current rebuilding strategies in Baltimore within the framework of the three strategies of urban neliberalization described above (see table 1 for outline). Before doing so it is important to provide context from the past ways racialized neoliberalization community building existed pre-late1900’s. While the label “neoliberalization” became synonymous with the evolving US political economy during the Reagan administration, many of its strategies have been in practice for decades previous, perhaps with greater government oversight, more social welfare, and not as much private ownership of public goods -as a white supremacist liberal political economic system (Kendall 2003). The right of the white individual to secure outcomes in their best interest through a free market system permeates the past liberal and current neoliberal political economies of the US.

The inevitability of an eventual death is the only thing that we share, that ties all all humans together. When analyzing the characteristics of a cemetery, one must take into consideration how cultural meaning and social constructs affect the landscape, because there is significance in the details. Cultural meaning and social constructs are displayed at both the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery (Pierce Brothers) cemetery and the Los Angeles National Veteran’s Cemetery (Veteran) through regulation of space, geometry, military landscape versus celebrity landscape, and absence. Even after death, Americans’ deepest values are depicted through the manner in which they are buried in these cemeteries.
“Where are you from?” The words “I’m from Brooklyn” explode from my mouth like a firecracker. I walk differently after saying it. My steps are a bit harder; chest pushes more forward, head held higher in the air. There’s a certain pride that consumes me whenever someone asks me about my hometown.
Past Versus the Present People say that the past is nothing like the present, but is that entirely true? The 1960s were very eventful, composing of many different aspects. Some of these aspects include the way the government was run, the way the music sounded, and the cultural attitude of that time period. Relatively speaking, the 1960’s time period was very different than our time period. However, there are some similarities between our time period, and the 1960s.
