The neighborhood : a progressive presentation from the traditional to contemporary

Ali-Zadeh Rastan, Soheil January 1990 (has links)
This thesis presents the phenomenon of communal habitation--from a traditional scene to a contemporary vista--in terms of a historical progression. It exhibits a hypothesis that attempts to justify the reason behind the deterioration of identity, livability and of neighborliness in contemporary neighborhoods. Although this thesis, in accordance with some contemporary community planning theories, pronounces the relevancy and importance of physical as well as social planning, it articulates, in line with annals of contemporary urban history, their incompetency to constitute the virtues of a good living place. In other words, urbanization, according to this thesis, is neither a mere physical pattern exhibited by fellow architects and planners, nor a sole social model manifested by some social reformers. Rather, it is a communal art the beauty of which is adorned by dwellers' goodwill and their spirit--a spirit that consequentially achieves a pleasing physical milieu, and attains a pleasant social environment.

Neighborhood Cohesion and Disengagement Among Black and White Aged

Taft, Harold E. 08 1900 (has links)
This study is concerned with social factors related to neighborhood interaction and disengagement among elderly persons controlling for race. Utilizing a scale of neighborhood cohesion as an index of disengagement, it was hypothesized that racial groups would not differ significantly as to their respective levels of neighborhood cohesiveness and local interest. It was also hypothesized that age groups would not differ significantly as to their respective levels of neighborhood cohesiveness and local interest.

The Campus Edge: Mediating University and Context

January 2007 (has links)
Urban colleges and universities must balance their desire to expand with the necessity of extroversion, more fully acknowledging their role as agents of change in their communities. Rather than revolutionizing the entirety of whatever campus already exists, can one of the campusÕs neglected edges present an opportunity for expansion in a different way, creating a zone that exposes students to a larger social realm, provides the public with the full educational and cultural benefits of proximity to the university, and revitalizes a blighted area, while creating an identity of its own? The project transforms Tulane UniversityÕs neglected, under-utilized S. Claiborne Avenue end not so much to create two ÔfrontsÕ in the form of two completely defined and closed Òbookends,Ó but to counterbalance TulaneÕs compositionally closed, homogeneous 19th-century entrance to an academic enclave with a hybrid, heterogeneous early_21st century counterpart which plays a variety of economic, educational, and social roles within its context. / Yes

The different urban efforts to revitalize urban neighborhoods in the United States and the United Kingdom: comparative case study based on governmental responses focusing on urban neighborhood revitalization

Ko, Youngho 10 October 2008 (has links)
Many US inner cities that had once experienced enormous growth have suffered decline in physical, social, and economic respects. This experience has been limited not only to US urban areas but is also apparent in many UK cities. Because the forces of urban decline have been similar in both cases, so have efforts to address their consequences. Urban policies in each country were implemented to regenerate (UK) or revitalize (US) inner city areas and neighborhoods. This study focuses on one aspect of urban regeneration/revitalization. Change in housing characteristics is a key indicator of decline in inner cities, and captures many of the social, economic and physical aspects of decline. By examining changes in housing characteristics, as well as contextual variables such as poverty, income, and unemployment, this paper examines differences in policy approaches to reversing urban decline. A comparative case study of neighborhoods in representative urban areas in each country using secondary qualitative and quantitative data provides evidence of how each country's approach resulted in changes to the neighborhood's housing and social characteristics. Interpreting these changes leads to conclusions and implications for current and future policies in each country.
