URBAN CURATION
SUMMARY

Urban Curation is the utilization of the assets the Implementation Organisation has already acquired by inserting selected programs and activities into the urban fabric of Dashilar. In this way we can activate these Nodes to have a radiating effect upon the wider area. Programs are selected through both our heuristics in place making and a quantitative analysis of key criteria.

Opportunities and Motivations

Both the developer and planner have their own knowledge sets andheuristics, as does Business, government and the community. Toan extent and as mandated by policy, every party involved directly,and not speculatively, has the same ultimate goal. Once speculativeand unsustainable forces have been removed, this goal can be verysimply stated in two statements; The building and housing qualityneeds to be improved, and the traditional nature, both tangibleand intangible, of the area needs to be celebrated as a cultural assetof the city. Every party knows best its own effect in the process,though the effect and knowledge can be very narrow. Whereproblems arise is in the responsibility of these effects, if the effectdoes not align with the knowledge, the results and benefit to thecity are difficult.


Node Development
Analysis and Scoring

From this analysis we find a strong hierarchy between the thematic tags. This hierarchy starts to point towards what our Node hubs should be; the most representative activities will create the most representative effect that we are hoping for. However, as to how these highly rated activities relate to lower activities, as well as themselves is not as obvious. The relationship; in this case, a tag’s frequency in occurring in the same activity as other particular tags, alongside the tags strength, is what the taxonomy intends to illustrate.

From this Thematic node plan we can suggest directly which businesses and activities should be located together to create a small and supporting hub.
