Can the architecture, layout of the area or its beautification affect people's emotions? Of course, they can. We are sure that the buildings that surround us, in addition to their direct functions of housing or a place to work, have more significance for the city and its residents - they help people to be friendly to each other, create points of interaction and form strong communities that, in as a result, they become the key to the security and economic growth of the territory. Abandoned areas, on the other hand, “cut off” the citizens from each other, since they don't carry any functions, don't have points of attraction and don't evoke any feelings.
American architect Mark Kushner said during his TED Talks: "Architecture is not about mathematics and zoning, but about people's emotions." And we completely agree with him.
There are many examples in the world when qualitative transformations of territories formed good neighborly relations between residents and positively influenced the economy of the region.
In particular, in the central part of East Harlem, the city authorities managed to reconstruct an abandoned site of 2000 square meters. m and create a public space Blake Hobbs Play-Za. In place of the empty and dilapidated site, a space appeared with a new asphalt surface, playgrounds, exercise equipment and recreation areas. This has become a point of attraction for many.
People by nature cannot be without society, communication and constant interaction. This is his basic need. Blake Hobbs Play-Za, after being renovated, has become an ideal place for this, thereby ensuring the economic growth of the territory.
Work on changes to the territory is also a good reason to involve residents in the process. Interacting people share common interests and experiences, which only strengthens relationships, facilitates networking, and makes residents happier and more confident.
Los Angeles has a case for the construction of school #13. Even before work began, the architects enlisted teachers and residents of nearby areas to learn their vision of how the new educational institution would integrate into the area. As a result, instead of one school, a whole community center appeared in the city with a library and classrooms available to all citizens. This proves once again that the best ideas are born in dialogue.
