Anthropology & Sociology Seminar Series : Sense of Belonging Other events...
This paper draws from my on-going Masters Dissertation in Urban Design (to be submitted 8th Nov 2018). This inquiry considers the role of design in shaping the built environment and thus patterns of human activity and social life. In this inquiry I ask the question “How Can We Design Built Form And Open Spaces In Suburban Contexts In Perth That Engender A Sense Of Belonging For New And Emerging Communities? In an attempt to answer this question a community mapping exercise (n =24) and ethnographic interviews were conducted (n = 10) to understand the places inhabited in people’s everyday and how these places are used. These interviews and maps have been analysed to make meaning so as to develop a place typology for design interventions. While this ‘place typology’ may not be replicable, it is an attempt to tie together the spatial and social sciences.
