Project II: Mapping Commonplaces

Over the course of this semester, I have done extensive research on the Shaw/U Street neighborhood in Washington D.C.  I begun research on this area by visiting a location selected from Ruben Castaneda’s book S Street Rising.  The location I chose was The O Street Market, which was recently renovated into a Giant Supermarket. While visiting this site, I photographed it’s interior and exterior, and observed the surrounding area.  For my final project I created a presentation to illustrate my commonplace’s connection to the Shaw neighborhood.  I also created a google map to locate places connected to my commonplace.
