Before departure, I will create an AUDIT which measures essential attributes of successful urban space, including formal typology, functionality, accessibility, sociability, and comfort. I will also create behavior maps of each civic space, which will eventually measure activity and circulation in plan.
Upon arrival, I expect to visit each site and utilize methods of systematic observation by conducting a passive audit. I will then apply corresponding data to my behavior maps. In addition, I will use photo documentation to highlight areas of interest within panoramic views. I plan to study each environment on weekend afternoons to allow for maximum use and diversity.
