"Providing an analysis of historical trends in the United States from the post-WWII era to the present, this thesis addresses how to revitalize and/or catalyze a community through the combined implementation of a public market and revitalization of a pedestrian street in combination with the use of existing buildings. The thesis argues that in order for architecture to act as a catalyst, its design must be place-based in order to spark reinvestment in the surrounding community."
Keywords: community, place, social capital, scale, gentrifier, urban renewal, deindustrialization, gentrification, urban market, pedestrian street, catalyst
