How the Mall Means:

Evans, Jocelyn J., York Kirsten B. “An Analysis of the National Mall as a Cohesively Built Environment” Perspectives on Political Science. 42, 3, July 2013: 117-130. EBSCOhost, doi:10.1080/10457097.2013.793515.

In this scholarly article, Jocelyn J. Evans and Kirsten B. York examine the three different plans the National Mall used in the past in order to develop it for the future, and to further understand the civic space and  social meaning of the National Mall. Evans and York also argue that American’s National Identity lies within the National Mall and its rhetorical meaning.

This article will further help my argument because it shows how important architecture and design is in a public space, and the different people it may draw in. Washington D.C. is not only the nations capital, but it represents our country in so many ways, and the National Mall is the most important tourist attraction where people from all  over come to a space, a political space, despite their difference in beliefs.

Exhibit:

Bader, Aya Peri. “A model for everyday experience of the built environment: the embodied perception of architecture” The Journal Of Architecture. 20, 2, 2015: 233-267. Taylor & Francis Online. Web. 29 Apr. 2017.

Aya Peri Bader, author of “A model for everyday experience of the built environment: the embodied perception of architecture”, she explores the way architecture is viewed by people when they are distracted. She believes that humans are and will always be preoccupied with their own lives and the impact of architecture has nothing to do with how concentrated or attentive we may be. In this five part scholarly article, Bader takes us through a very detailed structure of her stand on this issue as well as her credible and feasible model called LEBEN, which stands for Lived Experience of the Built Environment. Bader also considers the urban surroundings that contribute to the daily experience of architecture.

This article is very useful because the author applies her own method and model to an issue that is related to my argument and overall theme of my essay.

annotated bibliography 1:

Tyrrell, Mark. “How Your Environment Influences You.” How Your Environment Influences You        Uncommon Knowledge. N.p., n.d. Web. 20 Apr. 2017. <http://www.uncommon-  knowledge.co.uk/articles/uncommon-hypnosis/environment-to-influence-people.html>.

Background:

Mark Tyrrell is the author of article “How your environment influences you” and explains that our environment affects us more than one may think. It is the stem of all our behaviors and reactions to things around us. Terrell gives us examples such as language, and how a person can “build up an environment of words” that the other person might begin to respond to.

This source will be useful in my essay because it explains how we are highly susceptible to environmental triggers, which helps support my argument of the demographics of people living in Shaw 30 years ago, to the people living there today. The environment of Shaw 30 years ago wasn’t healthy, it was drug-ridden, poor, and uneducated because the environment was run down. But reconstruction of Shaw brought in new people.

Annotated Bibliography 2:

OAKLEY, D; BURCHFIELD, K. OUT OF THE PROJECTS, STILL IN THE HOOD: THE SPATIAL CONSTRAINTS ON PUBLIC-HOUSING RESIDENTS’ RELOCATION IN CHICAGO. Journal of Urban Affairs. 31, 5, 589-614, Dec. 2009. ISSN: 07352166.

Method:

Deirdre Oakley and Keri Burchfield, authors of article “Out of the Projects, still in the hood”, explain Chicago’s efforts in 1992 to change public housing for the better by relocating the residents living there in order to redevelop the community and create a mixed-income neighborhood. However, only a small portion of the people who were forced out of their homes in public housing will be able to move back into the new and updated public housing. There are also spatial constraints on the relocated individuals because they were mostly moved into poor African-American neighborhoods.

This article will be helpful in my essay because it goes further helps me understand the book we are reading, City of Rhetoric, which talks specifically about the different public housing in Chicago.
