• City Walks: Design Research Methodology Play all

    What is it about cities that attract more people to live in urban areas than in rural? Is it a city's ability to provide a mix of old and new, functional and dysfunctional that allows for a metropolis to provide the network of connections that people crave?

    This research methodology takes into account design, urban neighborhoods and how we relate to our environment. As a pedestrian in the city, I strike up conversations about how we respond and adapt to our urban surroundings. These discussions are documented in a video ethnography series, City Walks where I share stories about how people relate to their neighborhoods and community.

    If you share an enthusiasm for urban pedestrians and storytelling, please contact me.
