Description/Abstract

"Through an analysis of the city of Philadelphia, I hope to distinguish various political boundaries that exist and demonstrate that these boundaries are frequently problematic due to their locations, which are often at odds with social boundaries.... I assert that architecture can participate in a commentary on the existing social sondition in West Philadelphia by becoming a physical representation of this condition. Such a representation is possible when the architecture blurs the boundaries between social demographics.
