Draft 2- Built Environment Analysis

Even though GSU is not like other Universities, for example, we don’t have many open grass areas like traditional campuses, but we do have more opportunities then other schools by being in the city near some of the biggest businesses. Atlanta may not busiest city in the country but it is home of the busiest airport, Harts-field Jackson, and home to many large cooperation’s, Home Depot, Porsche…etc. When I was young I had a dream of the type of University life I would have. I would walk to class every day. I would sit in the grass every day to talk with friends and study. There would be Frisbee and someone playing a guitar. I now attend Georgia State University which is far from any of that. I take the bus to class and I meet friends in the lounge areas. I study in a spacious but crowded and loud library. This environment is not all bad we are closer to majority of the jobs and we already know the city so navigation through it is much easier there. My opportunity cost for a more diverse learning environment and wider opportunities is green space and fresh air. One 1of my close friend attends a college that is the opposite of my university. Her state college has open ground and study areas on the grass, benches where you can study and eat. On the other hand, her school is not located next to any businesses or job opportunities, in fact its neighbor is a technical college. You can say that being downtown around all the busy streets and people is...

Draft- Built Environment Analysis

The main point I want to get across is that Atlanta is creating more buildings and more space to live but it seems that Atlanta has less space. No where to park, in ability to expand one way streets to be able to have two ways streets. Traffic is bad because of the back up of lanes. My main analysis will be about ____________ It will/will not compare two things. Either about the relationship to space and businesses in the Atlanta area. Or the comparison of the thriving economy of a more spaced out environment. Possible thesis- Just because Atlanta is closer together and heavily populated does it mean there are better and more opportunities available to us then larger cities that are spaced. Generalize that atlanta is not ready for what is to come. With the space that we have now we either would have to get rid of the rest of the green we have or build building...

Digital Built Enviornment

  My Digital Built Environment is www.ourhousega.org. When you first open up the site you see an array of warm colors like a sunset. There is a slide show showing what happens at Our House, and sponsors for them. There is a bar above the slideshow and it has 8 tabs and 3 of them with arrows under them showing that they want to put more emphasis on them. Starting with the about us tab. When the page loads you see the mission statement   “Our House breaks the chains of homelessness by providing quality early childhood education and comprehensive support services for families who are experiencing homelessness.” (ourhousega.org) At the bottom right there is an opportunity to tell you story, most likely about your ordeals with homelessness or how Our House has helped you. Going back to the homepage there is a bar on the right side showing recent news for the site. Going back to the top of the page if we hover over the help us and get involved tab they are almost identical they both have an overview sub tab and they both talk about donating and volunteering. Seeing this it seems that they are really stressing the need for donations and volunteers. At the very top of the screen 1281 people have shared this site on Facebook and 68 people have tweeted about it. Scrolling to the very the bottom of the screen you see there is a place to sign up for newsletters and a direct link to connect you to their social media pages. There are many pictures of children on each tab...

It is intended for gaining knowledge on Marta and its beginnings. This source has helped me identify the rhetoric in this built environment. This book tells when Marta was built and the obstacles it faced going through the years to become the wide spread bus system it is today. I chose this sources because of it fact based content. It provides a background for my exterior built environment, and helps paint a mental picture of what Marta was then compared to how it is now. Using only second hand articles may have more opinion based information. The flaws with this book is its outdated content doesn’t account for new developments and achievements. This book was published in 2006 which is a ten year gap of information. This book relates to my other resources because it offers an unbiased opinion compared to the web articles used.
