    1. So What Happens To The Summerhill Neighborhood After The Braves Leave?

      Is this the question you're answering for research? You should make it more obvious that this is the question because I had to search for it and that is if this is the question.

      Overall I would say in this article I knew most of these problems existed just due to my prior knowledge from Perspectives in the city of Atlanta. I did learn many things as far as transportation with the building of highways and bridges. Where minorities aware of this problem when it was actually happening?

Moses made do

      This honestly comes at no surprise to me especially since minorities main way to get around was public transportation due to not being able to get a job because of race and also not having opportunities to get their own transportation.

      I feel as if this is what's happening with a current situation at our school, Georgia State University. The Turner Field coalition group. The designers or buyers are not really taking into consideration the feelings of the citizens.

      When it comes to the city of Detroit, I expect it considering how the city is today. When you build certain neighborhoods in order to keep a certain race from moving to a wealthy neighborhood it never ends up good or how it is supposed to.

      When not talking about segregation, I always thought the reasoning of highways were built to better suit the city of Atlanta in order to get to and from work not steer traffic from wealthy neighborhoods.

      I usually take the MARTA a lot and it never occurred to me that the buses never go to the more wealthy neighborhoods even though the trains do get pretty but it is not as convenient as the actual bus for the MARTA bus stops.

      Summary : This article informs on the history and background of segregation while also describing how physical design causes segregation.

    1. Vernacular Architecture

      Vernacular architecture goes back farther than i thought vernacular architecture was actually used to create ancient Egyptian pyramids or at least they had that mindhttp://blog.odysen.com/2013/11/19/10-interesting-facts-about-architecture/set even if it wasn't call vernacular architecture.

    2. ' ethnographi

      The branch of anthropology that deals with the description of specific human cultures, using methods such as close observation and interviews.

    3. IntroductionxviiiStudying buildings, then, requires some special training. The basic vernacular arch­itecture research method, however, is hardly revolutionary: it still requires gathering data, ordering and analyzing the data, and interpreting the data. Our chapters generally follow this sequence. First there is a definitional chapter that introduces the community- based conceptual model underlying our approach to vernacular architecture and vernac­ular architecture studies

      I believe with researching they would observe how families would live in certain buildings in order to find what works best for everyone, also interviewing many people and asking how they are comfortable in those spaces.

    4. In some cases you may even watch and observe how people behave in various archi­tectural environments. As you move further back in tim

      are they saying that according to the architecture thats how certain people would act in the building and how so? In a smaller space would they be more conserved and in an open space would they be more open?

    5. It had to be affordable, so it had to be short.

      What would affordable be back then to construct vernacular architecture?

    6. ral history and ethnographic observation are at times also important to the vernacular architecture researcher. It should he stressed, however, that the field of material culture studies remains artifact-driven, and the investigation and interpretation of buildings and land­scapes play leading roles in the research process.

      What is ethnographic observation?

    7. The material world we construct around us is the world that the study of material culture reveal

      We recently learned about material culture in my Intro to Sociology class and I never knew material culture was as big as it is today.So material culture is everywhere around us for instance how our houses are made.

    8. for example, people for whom private space is a highly valued commodity, any number of devices— from having your own plate from which to eat, your own drawers for your clothes, your own special chair on which to sit, to even having your own bathroom can help achieve the goal of privacy. Building separate, detached houses that are spaced far apart in the countryside or separated by just a few feet in urban neighborhoods (fig. 1) would be another way this spirit of indi­viduation is advanced through architecture.

      I find this to be true for the simple fact that in my house we have our own bathroom and our house would be very far from other even today. So when I moved in my dorm room where there is basically no privacy I realized how highly I valued privacy.

    9. The book cost $1.45 in the late 1960

      Was $1.45 expensive in the 1960's? and was the Deetz's book a well known book by many students studying architecture or did they just come upon it?

    10. he idea for it came from the classroom. As teachers, we wanted an introductory text for students that would both open their eyes to the world of ordi­nary buildings and outline a basic method for studying them

      When you think about how buildings are made I would've never thought it would come from students and how to structure a classroom.

      Summary: Invitation to Vernacular Architecture is a guide for understanding and exploring vernacular architecture which was very common in older time periods. This book would tell you how to approach a situation as to where you would need vernacular architecture and how vernacular architecture came about. This book would guide you step-by-step on what to look for buildings that have vernacular architecture.
