This studentís work attempted to improve the existing neglected and/or unattractive public areas of the MLK-Madison corridor and add more positive public social areas throughout the corridor to attract more people and enhance existing commercial and residential areas present. In order to achieve that she ď...divided the public space along and around the corridor in two parts: recreational space more addressed to the residents of the neighborhoods close to the corridor and commercial space, which focuses on the shoppers and visitors in the area." Her project borrows the theory of Everyday Urbanism, written by John Chase, Margaret Crawford and John Kaliski and the theory of The Practice of Everyday Life, written by Michel de Certeau.
