Climate Futures, Design, And The Just Transition, Liberal Arts Division Nov 2018

Climate Futures, Design, And The Just Transition, Liberal Arts Division

Nature-Culture-Sustainability Studies (NCSS) Events

VIEW EVENT PHOTOS

Symposium, November 9-10, 2018. Friday | 1:30-6:30pm. Saturday | 9:00 am - 3:00 pm. RISD Auditorium.

At a time when climate politics would seem to be stuck between a state of “melancholic paralysis” (Wark, 2015) and “passive nihilism” (Connolly, 2016), mobilizations occurring around just transitions stand as one of the few bright spots on the horizon. Discussions of just transitions are at different stages of development. They come with the usual bundle of issues, problems, controversies and setbacks. But they also come with potential and promise. In a bleak intellectual context, where the converging forces of ...


Re-Line Downtown Pine Bluff, Community Design Center Jan 2018

Re-Line Downtown Pine Bluff, Community Design Center

Project Reports

Once a prosperous cultural urban center in the Mississippi River delta, but now the nation’s second fastest shrinking city, Pine Bluff (population: 42,700) is Arkansas’ Detroit. Indeed, a study of black wealth conducted by famed sociologist W. E. B. Du Bois in 1899 found that Pine Bluff had the fourth highest rate of black wealth in the nation behind Charleston, Richmond, and New York City. The school’s community design center prepared a downtown revitalization plan, Re-Live Downtown Pine Bluff, a housing-first initiative focused on building neighborhoods around downtown “centers of strength”. While the revitalization approach is triaged ...

Presentation At Penn Urban Studies Colloquium: Delhi, The Invisible City, Kushanava Choudhury, Durba Chattaraj, Moulshri Joshi

Presentations (Social Science Studio)

New Delhi is the capital of India, and a master-planned metropolis. Its unplanned spaces such as Urban Villages, Unauthorized Colonies and Jhuggi Jhopri Clusters tend to be seen as the margins of the planned city. Yet a majority of citizens live and work in these unplanned areas of the city.

For millions of Delhi-ites, the non-planned areas are sources of affordable rental housing as well as employment, as locations for thousands of small businesses and workshops. These spaces and the economies and communities they contain, are connected to the planned city through complex political and economic arrangements. These spaces and ...


The Humane Metropolis: People And Nature In The 21st Century, Rutherford H. Platt Sep 2006

The Humane Metropolis: People And Nature In The 21st Century, Rutherford H. Platt

University of Massachusetts Press Books

The Humane Metropolis explores the prospects for a more humane metropolis through a series of essays and case studies that consider why and how urban places can be made greener and more amenable. Its point of departure is the legacy of William H. Whyte (1917-1999), one of America's most admired urban thinkers. From his eyrie high above Manhattan in the offices of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Whyte laid the foundation for today's "smart growth" and "new urbanist" movements with books such as The Last Landscape (1968). His passion for improving the habitability of cities and suburbs is reflected ...

The Landmarks Of Federal Hill: "The Broadway-Armory Historic District" (February 28, 1980), Joseph R. Muratore

Joseph Muratore Papers: Newspaper Columns

This week we continue with a series of pictures and descriptions of homes along the Broadway-Armory Historic District. These pictures are of the more elaborate and well-designed homes of the outlying district of Federal Hill. These homes indicate the pattern of growth that radiated, on which these dwellings were built. The homes, not only reflect the beauty of the houses that were erected, but also indicate the opulence of the era.

The Landmarks Of Federal Hill: Historic Districts Of Federal Hill, Joseph R. Muratore

Joseph Muratore Papers: Newspaper Columns

I have dwelt at length with the Historic Districts of Federal Hill, because of the importance of the dwellings that are still in existence, which are a carryover of the first homes erected in this area. These homes are structures which represent a period of the past, and fortunately, have been preserved to this date. They should continue to be preserved, in order that the fine architecture, the opulence of the era, and the pattern of development of the past, can still be seen, and to the direction that Federal Hill developed, and how it radiated from certain focal points.

The Landmarks Of Federal Hill: Amos Atwell, Businessman And Leader, Joseph R. Muratore

Joseph Muratore Papers: Newspaper Columns

In the 1780's, most of Federal Hill was still open fields - a place for the cows to graze on, overlooking the great salt cove to the north and the east, and there were marshes to the south, (now, South Providence), and the wild open spaces were to the west.

In 1788, Amos Maine Atwell (named after a ancestory who owned the entire Province of Maine) and several other businessmen formed a syndicate (a type of corporation) to improve and develop the West side of the city of Providence.
