Garfield Station Area Rehabilitation Project
Architecture is significantly associated with people. Because architecture is design of life, activities and spaces for people. Therefore, architectural behavior does not have only a physical impact but also social and economic impact on the area. Especially the architectural elements can help to development an area and provide an enhanced economic aspect, cultural activities and social communication to inhabitants in underdeveloped or backward area. The Garfield Station Area Rehabilitation Project is a grand scale development project that comprehends urban scheme, site master plan and architectural design phases. The goal of the project, consistent throughout all phases, is to transform the abandoned Washington Park Community into a recovered, preserved and developed community with its rich history by promoting cultural, social and economical incentives to be linked to the Hyde Park Community.
