As we begin the process of better understanding NW 13th, we are excited to share images of our initial steps to gain insight into the particular experiences of users of the street. In doing this we sought to acquire knowledge about the relationship between people and space so we decided to leave the office, get out, and observe. As we witnessed the daily activities and circumstances of people on the street, we recorded textually and visually how individuals enact space.
At the end of the day, this was helpful in beginning to understand what people do on NW 13th and what their needs are. Sometimes, you just gotta go and live the street.
