Public Land Revisited: Municipalization And Privatization In Newark And New York City, Samuel Stein, Oksana Mironova Dec 2018

Public Land Revisited: Municipalization And Privatization In Newark And New York City, Samuel Stein, Oksana Mironova

Publications and Research

Public land plays a central role in contemporary urban planning struggles. Using a comparative case study approach focused on the north-eastern US cities of Newark and New York City, we uncover patterns of land acquisition and dispossession that fit five broad and often overlapping periods in planning history: City Beautiful, metropolitan reorganization, deindustrialization, and devaluation, followed by hyper-commodification in New York City and redevelopment amidst disinvestment in Newark. Through this periodization, we find that accumulation and alienation of urban public land has largely taken place through two modes of municipalization (targeted and reactive) and two modes of privatization (community-led and ...

LeBron appeared at new Lakers mentor Frank Vogel's early on public interview, if just for the optics, and what a dramatization demonstrate that ended up being with Rob Pelinka responding to more inquiries regarding Magic Johnson's manipulating and-disloyalty claims than Vogel was inquired as to, yourself know, instructing ball.


The Lakers are a wreck at this moment. There's no genuine method to discuss that. Be that as it may, LeBron, as indicated by Joe Vardon of The Athletic, is as yet dedicated to the purple and gold - or he's at ...


Matter Dis//Assembled: Revealing The Economies And Ecologies Of Aluminum, Noah Anderson Dec 2018

Matter Dis//Assembled: Revealing The Economies And Ecologies Of Aluminum, Noah Anderson

Architecture Thesis Prep

This project seeks to understand matter through the environments it creates. These environments, created through production, end-use, and disposal, extend to the scale of the world, the territory and the product. In a globalized world, the separate environments of a single material are highly external, and while we may know where a material comes from, the consequences of its extraction and manufacture are out-of-site, out-of-mind. This externalization is evident for Aluminum, which has a diverse and often contradictory range of environments.

The Steph versus KD banter seethes on as the Warriors are currently 5-0 in these playoffs with Durant on the rack. That mark is really 6-0 as the Warriors were losing when Durant went out in Game 5 against the Rockets before Curry and Co. driven a second-half rebound. The Warriors are currently 31-1 in their last 32 amusements in which Curry plays and Durant doesn't, and since Durant landed in 2016, they are 34-4 in such diversions.


In the four-game range of Portland, Curry arrived at the midpoint of 36.5 focuses ...

A Research Program For Studying Lams And Community In The Digital Age, Andreas Vårheim, Roswitha Skare, Noah Lenstra, Kiersten F. Latham, Geir Grenersen

Proceedings from the Document Academy

The paper outlines a research effort into the changing representations, policies, strategies, activities, and practices of libraries, archives, and museums (LAMs) in the digital age. Comprehensive social changes including big slow-moving processes, such as aging populations, global migration, technological change, and environmental change, expose communities and LAM institutions to vulnerabilities. How do the institutions handle vulnerabilities, how do they become more resilient, and how do they contribute to building the resilience of their local communities?

Community, Preservation, And Street Art: A Proposal For San Francisco’S Mission District, Marissa Nadeau Dec 2018

Community, Preservation, And Street Art: A Proposal For San Francisco’S Mission District, Marissa Nadeau

Master's Projects and Capstones

The Latinx community is an integral part of San Francisco’s rich history. From Mexican missions in the late 1700s to an influx of immigrants from various Latin countries starting in the early 1900s, the Mission District (‘the Mission’) of San Francisco has served as a hub for this mix of residents, fondly called “Raza,” emphasizing the people of a community rather than the country they have come from. Wars and issues dealt in their homelands were close to the hearts of the entirety of the Latinx population of the Mission, and their voices and opinions were heard through a ...

Level Of Social Participation In The Creation Of Urban Regeneration Programmes – The Case Study Of Small Towns In Poland, Mariusz Czupich

European Spatial Research and Policy

Social participation enables citizens to take part in the decision-making process. It is an increasingly popular instrument in Poland. The effectiveness of participation is the most important issue in this context. In accordance with the Act of 9 October 2015, urban regeneration mainly applies to mitigating negative social phenomena. The social aspect is also important at the stage of establishing urban regeneration programmes. Extensive social participation in the process of creat­ing these programmes is one of the main requirements. The aim of the article is to present the scale of the involvement of local communities in the procedure of ...


The New Urbanism Principle Of Quality Architecture And Urban Design Versus Place Identity. A Case Study Of Val D’Europe And The Manufaktura Complex, Monika Maria Cysek-Pawlak, Sylwia Krzysztofik Dec 2018

The New Urbanism Principle Of Quality Architecture And Urban Design Versus Place Identity. A Case Study Of Val D’Europe And The Manufaktura Complex, Monika Maria Cysek-Pawlak, Sylwia Krzysztofik

European Spatial Research and Policy

This article contributes to the New Urbanism debate by considering the relationship between the identity of a place and quality in architecture and urban design. It combines a general theoretical discussion and an operational analysis with a comparative study of two commercial centres: Manufaktura in Łódź (Poland) and Val d’Europe in Marne-la-Vallée (France). It concludes that while the guidelines of New Urbanism can help both private investors and public stakeholders make better strategic decisions, according to the concept of quality architecture and urban design, its framework should be applied with care for community needs and the historical character of ...

Opportunities And Challenges Of Urban Agriculture For Sustainable City Development, Erwin Van Tuijl, Gert-Jan Hospers, Leo Van Den Berg

European Spatial Research and Policy

Urban Agriculture (UA) has gained popularity in cities all over the world. In this paper, we explore the concept of UA and discuss it along various locational and strategic dimensions. The article aims to provide insights into the chances and challenges of UA for sustainable city development. By making use of case examples from cities worldwide we show that UA can contribute to the social, environmental, and economics pillars of sustainable city development. However, there are limitations which should be taken into account for cities that want to invest in urban agriculture.


Strategic Spatial Planning In Lebanon: An International “Recipe”. The Case Of The Union Of Municipalities, Rozana Darwich Dec 2018

Strategic Spatial Planning In Lebanon: An International “Recipe”. The Case Of The Union Of Municipalities, Rozana Darwich

European Spatial Research and Policy

In 1977 the municipal law authorised the creation of unions of municipalities in Lebanon. However, only recently have they actually begun to emerge; 13 unions existed in 1990 while 57 were created by 2017. Over the last decade these unions have assumed an important role within the local dynamics, particularly in the field of strategic planning. This article aims to analyse that shift by answering the following questions: first, what is the positioning of the unions, as institutional planning actors, on the planning chessboard? Second, how was strategic planning transferred to the unions of municipalities? And finally, what was the ...

Sensing The City: Legibility In The Context Of Mediated Spatial Terrains, Sharon Wohl Dec 2018

Sensing The City: Legibility In The Context Of Mediated Spatial Terrains, Sharon Wohl

Architecture Publications

Smartphones, with their “pervasive presence” in contact with our bodies, have come to act as sensory prosthetics that mediate our experience of the city. They activate new possibilities of navigating the urban, such that we can find exactly what we want, rather than what has been placed before us. This article argues that smartphone technologies produce a more fluid engagement with urban space: where space is not so much “given” as “enacted.” In this context, notions of “legibility” take on new algorithmic and virtual forms. Thus, according to Hamilton and colleagues, where “the legible city waited to be read, the ...

Light Eaters: A Study On The Affect Of Light Depicted Through Different Art Mediums, Samuel Dyck

Student Scholar Symposium Abstracts and Posters

Humankind has spent its entire history defining and creating the things that make up our physical world. Everyday, humanity continues to discover and create, furthering society’s knowledge and understanding of existence. However, there are facets of nature that have never been entirely understood by mankind, because they have a unique affect on each individual. It is known how a tree manifests and grows but no one can explain the feeling of relief that comes in the shade of a long limbed oak on a cloudless day. Nature is unique in its simplicity and mystery. Artists often use aspects of ...
