THE AESTHETICS OF ZONING - SOCIAL AND ECONOMICS ASPECTS

ZONING HAS BECOME THE STANDARD METHOD OF GUIDING THE EFFICIENT USE OF LAND AND OF CONTROLLING THE HEIGHT, AREA, AND USE OF BUILDINGS. DESIGN DEALS WITH ARRANGEMENT OF SPACE AND WITH SIZE, FORM, TEXTURE, AND COLOR. POVERTY HAS LONG BEEN A FACT OF URBAN EXISTENCE, SO HAS THE RECOGNITION THAT POVERTY IS NOT AESTHETICALLY ACCEPTABLE. THE CULTURE OF POVERTY IS NOW RECEIVING ATTENTION AS A STABLE FEATURE OF THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT, WHICH MAY CHANGE BUT WHICH MAY NEVER BE ELIMINATED. THE AESTHETICS OF POVERTY IS ALMOST UNEXPLORED TERRITORY. THIS PROMPTED THE BIBLIOGRAPHIC RESEARCH ON THE AESTHETICS OF ZONING.
