I requested for another writer to write this before but she has written it very complicated. Please make sure it is very clear :)
This is an investigation into how design can facilitate social change toward a more sustainable way of living. We worked in small groups and assigned to a block (or blocks) in Williamsburg, which is Bedford Ave between 3rd and 4 th streets in Brooklyn.In this paper, You had to examine exaclty only the 3rd and 4th street in Bedford avenue(not the others please)
You will use qualitative methods and design research to conduct a close observation of the residential and commercial activities on the block(s). The goal is to understand your block and the social, economic and political forces that are shaping Williamsburg and to propose a solution, in the form of a business proposal, to improve the quality of life, from a sustainability point of view, for the residents of Williamsburg.
To do this you will perform observational research on your block(s);search for businesses and community members in order to understand the ways in which the neighborhood has changed as a result of gentrification
in the last 10-20 years; and conduct secondary research (census data, articles, books, etc) in order to better understand the neighborhoods context.
â€¢ Who are the residents of the block that you are studying (demographics)?
â€¢ What businesses are on the block that you are studying and why are they located there?
â€¢ What are the problems that residents and businesses encounter in the neighborhood?
â€¢ Are there conflicts between different groups of residents?
â€¢ How do individual businesses on your block market or brand themselves? How does Williamsburg as a distinct neighborhood within New York City market itself?
OBSERVATIONAL THEMES (focus on one or more of the following):
Temporal and spatial variationsâ€¢
Global and local activities (this includes marketing and city branding)
