Building Resilient Communities in NYC: Rethinking gentrification and the role of the architect

Part 1 Dissertation 2017

Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture Edinburgh UK
This dissertation investigates gentrification in New York City, the controversial implications the phenomena can have on the communities therein, and calls the architect to the table in challenging contemporary building practices in the process of urban transformation. The need of the investor to gain short term profit versus the long term relationship of communities to the city have to find a balance in the redefinition of consolidated, although dysfunctional, procedures.
