Built Environment Anaylsis

Bowman, Jen. “Luxury Homes in Historic Druid Hills – Springdale Rd.” ActiveRain. N.p., 23 July 2009. Web. 13 Feb. 2016. Givens, Darin. “Tuba Christmas at Underground Atlanta.” ATL Urbanist. N.p., 8 Dec. 2012. Web. 2 Apr. 2016. Throughout my journey in this class, I got to explore and learn more about Atlanta as I visited and observed the interior and exterior environments I choose for my projects. The exterior environment I choose to observe is the Druid Hills neighborhood located in DeKalb County while my interior environment was Underground Atlanta that’s located in the heart of downtown Atlanta. Although these two environments are different, hey do have some similarities. The similarities and differences I will discuss are how they impact the city if Atlanta economically, the community, and in the future. The Druid Hills neighborhood is one of the oldest prehistoric communities in Atlanta. As I observed and walked through this community I noticed it offered a variety of artifacts such as the prehistoric Druid Hills that is located on Pounce de Leon. The traffic throughout this neighborhood is horrendous. However, the Underground Atlanta district is a historic landmark that has undergone various restorations and renovations and has horrendous traffic throughout due to visitors and travelers. Both of these environments are rich in history and have undergone went various changes throughout the years. These environments impact the communities of Atlanta due to the infrastructures and shopping and entertainment they offer within their area. The Druid Hills community and the Underground Atlanta district offer a lot towards the Atlanta economy to impact it. Although, the Druid Hills community is portrayed...

Digital Built Environment

The digital site I choose to observe was gov.georgia.gov. It is Governor Nathen Deals and the Georgia government website. The layout of this website is the Georgia flag with the emblem in the left corner next to Governor Deal’s name. Upon entering this website, the first thing I noticed was how it provided informal information on the latest things going on in the state of Georgia and Governor Deal’s, The First Lady, and the duties that center around the government of the state of Georgia. There is a variety of information you can learn and find on this website. The drop down menu’s serve as a helpful tool to help you find the information you’re looking for. Everything is organized in a very plain yet concise way. However, the site is easy to navigate without any closed obstacles. One of the main tools that make this website helpful is the ability you have to translate the website into another language if you’re a non-English speaker. The colors that are present on this website give you the feeling as if you’re actually at the capital learning this information. I believe this website offers this feeling because it’s the government website where you can expand your knowledge on learning about your governor, the state government, and the day-to-day duties of the governor. This site is used as a tool to inform the citizens of the state of Georgia on the latest things that are happening and provide them with insightful information on the governor. Lastly, this site is advertised through the Georgia government and target its intended users through social media...
