Second Built Environment Analysis – Extra

The City of Atlanta, Psychologically Impairing its Residents Different spaces and environments are equipped with specific features that psychologically change ones mood and behavioral characteristics. This is evident in the way we feel and function in our day to day lives in the many different atmospheres we are in. Have you ever noticed the way you feel when you enter into a library or a large room of bodies studying? Doesn’t it psychologically make you feel as if you want to just pick up a book or begin being productive and start doing homework or study notes? This feeling is caused by the built environment of the particular space you are in and the vibes that are emitted from this area. This same concept is also true in different geographical and urbanized or suburban areas as well. For example, the built environment of Atlanta has a special and unique atmosphere that psychologically brings out different emotions and types of work ethics for individuals verses being outside of the metropolitan city area of Atlanta. There are various factors that contribute to a particular spaces built environment. A few of these contributing factors include the architectural structure of a space, the colors associated and themed in a particular environment; and the overall vibes a space emits due to the types of people around, location, and geographical setting. An experiment conducted by psychologists at the University of British Columbia took a look at how the color of interior walls influence the imagination. The results seemed to be noticeably understandable because of how these colors usually make us feel as well. Red was...

MARTA MAYHEM

MARTA Mayhem Can you believe that since the beginning of MARTA, in 1979, MARTA has transported more than 5 billion commuters? If you’re like me, and an Atlanta Native, then you probably find this statistic highly shocking. Especially since MARTA is represented and historically known as a poor transit system that pushes more inhabitants towards carpooling or using their own form of transportation. It is a public rail system that only serves certain areas of the city and if they chose not to expand its coverage areas and invest in programs and technologies to increase the public’s perception then we, in Atlanta, will have one of the most underutilized public transit system for the amount of population in the United States. It is a complete necessity for cities the size of ours to have a well-rounded, efficient and user friendly mode of transportation or we will no longer be the thriving city we are at this point in time. In general, MARTA must morph into a well-oiled machine by appealing to the new workforce, creating an efficient system, making people feel comfortable and connecting more areas of the city otherwise it is doomed to fail in what is most definitely the most populated but sprawled out city in the Nation. The below image shows exactly why Atlanta needs an improved and efficient system. IT IS HUGE.   Atlanta, a town known for diversity, but still highly populated with prejudices, brings me to my point that MARTA must completely revamp if they want to appeal to both sides of the “riders spectrum” this ranges from the working class citizens that...

Bibliographic Annotation #9 and #10

Bibliographic Annotation #9: OUTFRONT Media PR, Newswire. “OUTFRONT Media Signs New Contract with Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority.” PR Newswire US 05 Dec. 2014: Regional Business News. Web. 24 Apr. 2016. This article is mainly about MARTA’s new agreement with OUTFRONT Media. A company that is North America’s largest transit company. Marta decided to team with them for a 5-year contract beginning in 2015. This is very exciting for MARTA’s since OUTFRONT Media is dedicated and one of the best companies in transport advertising. With the addition of OUTFRONT Media, Marta expects to add $25 million dollars in Revenue. This is completely relevant to my argument, since it provides more evidence that MARTA is concerned with changing it’s publics perception and that a positive light on MARTA is necessary for growth. The best point made is that OUTFRONT Media cover the advertising for the hemisphere’s largest transportation cities, including the extremely efficient New York Cities. Although, I do this this article could have used a bit more explanation on how OUTFRONTmedia expands to advertise. It is hard to find relevance in an article, when they don’t give you reasoning or a map of their plans for the...
