The notes I have taken are what I heard and how I interpreted it. These notes do not cover 100% of everything that was said in class and not word for word. Some things on here have the possibility to be wrong. I am only human.

NOTE: Clicking words that are highlighted like this (Google) will open a new tab and take you to a website with a description/helpful explanation or save you time from searching things like Zotero and etc.

Today in class we discussed:

  • Types of research
  • Built Environment Project

Built Environment Project

Things you want to observe:

  • Style = What the space is like(specific details).

    Ex: Modern –> full of computers/apple logo/modular

    Aural = Sounds you hear.

    Ex: Kids playing in a park, sounds of the swings.

    Structure = How things are designed/built

    Ex: Buildings–> pillars etc

    Tone = The effect of the space on you. How it makes you feel. What the author uses.

    Ex: Space makes you feel cold or its inviting.

    Visual = The things you see.

    Ex: Traffic, buses etc.

    Organization = How things are laid out.

    Ex: Where sidewalks/trails go, how buildings are spread out, bus stops.

    Mood = What the audience feels/reacts/thinks. Oral = The way people speak.

    Ex: Accents during an interview.

    Graphics = Signs

    Ex: The style of the sign, color, definition/how detailed the sign is.

    Diction = Signs/punctuation.

    Ex:  Keep out sign vsWelcome sign

    Repetition = Styles or patterns that repeat.

    Ex: All the buildings in a shopping plaza are designed similar.

    Colors = The colors present.

    Ex: Red, Green, Black etc.

Types of research

Primary research: Examples: Built environment descriptions, interviews, using archives, transcripts.

Secondary research: Examples: Annotated bibliographies,

When conducting interviews:

Remember, they are people. Do not badger/force people to talk to you. Respect them. Ask for permission to interview/record/taking pictures and have them sign a release form.
