The History Timeline - Anna Rogowska
In order to gain a better understanding of the nature of current situation within Poland it is crucial to explore its rich, but painful history. To aid this, a timeline of the country’s past has been created. It gives a quick overview of the turbulent past, together with most important events directly impacting the modern outlook on foreigners in Poland.
Mind-map Showing the Effects of Celebrating an Areas Identity - Kate Melhuish
There is a habit removing or hiding it history and not preserving buildings for use and signifying their importance leaving derelict site and buildings throughout the Clyde area. By removing these areas of importance from their neighbourhood in turn you lose the areas identity and this contributes to a loss of community and connection to the city along with perpetuation the rise in mental health issues. By celebrating a places identity and history, bringing these areas back to life for their communities we can bring people back together and create spaces for communities, increasing their connection to each other and to the city as a whole.
Research and Manifesto - Anna Rogowska
Despite its turbulent past Poland has had a long history of tolerance for other cultures and religions. It has unfortunately seen a decline in recent years with acts of racism, hate speech, and xenophobia becoming an almost every day occurrence with no visible repercussions. The two main questions that this project aims to answer are: ‘why is it happening?’ and ‘what can be done to stop it?’.
Insurrections and Uprisings have been an inseparable part of our history following multiple invasions and attacks. So much so that there is a separate page on Wikipedia collecting all Polish uprisings featuring 16 pages and 23 subcategories. Just as in the past Poles had to rise up against invaders and occupants, it is time to rise up against intolerance and injustice.
After analyzing the timeline and recent events certain conclusions could be drawn and overall society profile with four main factors could be recognized. All of these factors served later as a guideline for creation of the Manifesto. While creating the manifesto, lessons derived from previous analyses have been applied. Thus the following workflow model has been developed:
recognized issue -> possible solution
Based on proposed solutions the specific manifesto points were created, after which the architectural solutions were modeled.
