Why isn’t poverty more frequently considered when discussing gentrification? Poverty is often the pre-existing condition of gentrification, and poverty is often displaced as a result of gentrification. Is there a way for designers and planners to deliver projects without exacerbating poverty?
- Be able to identify different definitions of gentrification.
- Develop the skills needed to analyze case studies of projects that both mitigate and exacerbate poverty.
- Identify the storylines of poverty within the hype about gentrification.
- Begin to build an ethical system, while anticipating the outcomes of design and planning projects.
