CASE STUDY: PUBLIC STREETS FOR MULTICULTURAL USE

Public streets for Multicultural Use

BY MARYAM LESAN
“The main conclusion from this research is that retail activities remain the main concern
of people in multi-cultural streets. Management and higher level planning of retail activities on the streets could encourage and motivate possible tenants in order to enrich the retail assortment of the street and provide a means for social and cultural diversity.
In addition to business activities, spatial design characteristics are found to have an influence on people’s behaviour and activity. The findings of this research suggest that retail and business activities, together with the design and skilful management
of the public areas, could support a broader range of static and social activities among people of various cultural backgrounds. The thesis makes recommendations for urban planners and designers based on the findings of the research”.
