Understanding public space and place in community space (semi-public space) and public The relation between people and environment will be based on the public space because of this is the good place for people having social action and improve their mental health. This action is not only have meaning in healthy but also in mental. The relation among the quality of the public spatial and the issues of segregation and daily life is the major goal of this paper. Hence, this section will give for the reader the definitions and discussions on the major concepts by review the relevant literature and give the differences brief reports and results. Another name of public space is social space that is open for everyone in general (Hadley & Marc, March 1, 2010).
Therefore, the success of a town in acquiring its identity and sense of place determined by the important role of townscape that reflects the relationship between elements that compose the urban fabric. The concept of townscape can be defined as a part of a city that has a significance in setting a character of a city. Townscape is a result of a symbiotic interaction and cross fertilisation to a high degree of economic activities, architectural ideas, cultural and social diversities. Diversity within a uniform environment creates an effect that stimulates the senses and mind to view the environment as a city. The charm of townscape and places is also due to human activity patterns that reflect the socio-cultural values of the
Rational motivation should be encouraged, and people regardless of their profession must think of how making their city a better place to live. Volunteers should help engineers to improve the levee network, i.e. within the framework of voluntary IT support, software development, or donating on the reconstruction of the available levee network along with the investment in the brand new model of the levee
The socio-economic factors are very important in the promotion of a denser form, as they play an important role. For the idea of the compact city to be successful, social and economic considerations need to be given equal weight to environmental concerns, and the compact city needs to be controlled and managed appropriately. There is a belief that urban managers should adopt a realistic and balanced approach, and the compactness should include the intensification in a wider variety of settlements, including sub-centers and suburbs, which could be connected by efficient transport links. 22.214.171.124 Social Aspect Many authors discuss the social effects of urban sprawl (Hillman, 1996; Kelly-Schwartz et. al., 2004; Duany et.
By having more and easier access to job training or internship programs in the inner city, Dre would be able to put his talent and skills to use towards something positive and healthy. My program idea relating to job training and internships specifically reflects the branch of social structure theory called social disorganization theory. Social disorganization theory focuses on institutions in
Responding to cultural trends to decrease the overweight and obesity, Fitbit seeks a greater social impact to shape future lifestyles. It is evident that elements of Fitbit’s marketing strategy incorporate wearable technology to influence social and individual behaviors (Kamin & Anker, 2014). Accordingly, Fitbit products attract consumers that want to change their physical and health behaviors by changing their personal norms. Furthermore, Fitbit is attractive to technology users who use activity logs or desire to track personal biometrics and performance progression. Fitbit also appeals to subcultural groups with a shared desire for togetherness and fitness with Fitbit communities in large cities.
“Biophilic design is the deliberate attempt to translate an understanding of biophilia into the design of the built environment” (Kellert, 2008). It involves building and landscape design that enhance human well-being by fostering positive connections between people and natural environment. It is an innovative design approach that aims to maintain, enhance and restore the benefits of experiencing nature in the built environment. It starts by observing the effect of the mutual interaction between the natural and the built environment. The learned knowledge is then reflected onto the design and construction of the built environment.
The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has taken many clues from London’s traditional urban fabric where walking and cycling is part of everyday life. Block size, therefore, balances ease of pedestrian and cyclist access, permeability and connectivity with the ability to support a variety of building types, uses and adaptability. It is also recognised that as people grow older and potentially less confident in navigating the city, built form can play a role in wayfinding, providing memorable and distinct places or landmarks. There are many strategies employed to encourage people to walk and cycle throughout the Park and hence reduce reliability on car usage. In order to encourage long-term social, as well as economic, investment in the area, the communities of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park are designed as ‘Lifetime Neighbourhoods’.
of architecture which including history, identity, culture, prosperity or spirit of a city. Accordingly, to reach this process of the dialectics of nature, tradition, and modern avant-garde architecture, Frampton constituted a theoretical background representing critical regionalism. In addition to that critical regionalism adopts the principle of the tectonic reality and place in architecture. In other words, the architect should create the tectonic reality by using the physical dimensions of the site consisting of topography, climate; the sensual features consisting of light, heat, weather movements as well as the visual features and even the materials that are taken by the foreign resources as well as the local resources. For this, the integration
Some authors presented solutions for integration based on particular urban and demographic characteristics, which resulted from persistent activism on the part of communities and individuals. Ellin (2011) has identiﬁed ﬁve factors qualities in her Integrated Urbanism book to propose stable integration: Hybridity, Connectivity, Porosity, Authenticity, Vulnerability [19, 20]. Hybridity and connectivity encourage activities and people to come together, treating people and nature as symbiotic — as well as building and landscape — rather than oppositional. Porosity encourages mutual access of nature and people through permeable membranes rather than the modernist attempt to dismantle boundaries or create postmodern
