Third, I will review the political economy (social-spatial dialect) landscape of the “urban question” and how their panorama explains and gives better analyses of urban inequality. Definition: The Urban Question Again, this section will give a working definition of the “urban question’. To fully compare the political economy and ecological perspectives a description of the “urban question” allows the reader to better understand the divergent schools of thought. For Social Science scholars, from a variety of disciplines, the “urban question” asks how space and the urban or city are related (The City Reader, 2009). The perspective that guides the ecological and the social spatial-dialect schools of thought asks the “urban question” in separate distinct terminology.
The author points out two leverage points: material stocks and flow, that is, a urban infrastructure built by stocks and flows will have big effect on system operation; and self-organization, that is organism and social system can change themselves by creating new structure and behavior. Deyond gives the example of Urban-think tank (U-TT), an architecture firm, using their projects vertical Gymnasiums (VGs) and Metro Cable to illustrate those two leverage points. The second article From Product to Process: Building on Urban Think Tank’s Approach to the Informal City introduce a firm named Urban- think tank (U-TT) that focuses on the city problem and tries to start proposal for the city in building projects in conflict zones. They have designed many projects in different parts of the world. Similar to this urban acupuncture is the way that “cures” the city and social problems by making changes of certain part in the city.

The main content of basic theory of the urban economy includes urbanization, city size, and internal structure of the urban economy and so on. As urban economics is also a part of social science, so it subject to be constrained by social and political system.
While at another end you can view it as the artist in a sense blessing others with the fruits of their inner consciousness. An artistic expression no matter what the viewpoint of society, in an anthropological context graffiti is essential to modern society and its impact is one that cannot be forgotten or lived without. To make sense of graffiti’s place in the modern world, one must understand the aesthetic relationship that is held between artists and their work. Creating graffiti or as defined by Webster dictionary as: “pictures or paintings drawn on a wall or building etc…” is subjective (“Graffiti”). This definition implies the inexplicit nature to what graffiti really is.
Urban visual culture focuses on aspects of culture that rely on visual representations. It explores routes within Visual Culture and how it will impact the Urban environment, London is a prime example with the Grenfell tower incident and the way it was communicated though the news. Throughout this research, I plan to investigate Governing bodies and their format for developing affordable housing along with analysing the downfall within certain areas that do not achieve milestones to ensure its balanced within the market.

This assignment will explore this issue and use the materiality of inner-city areas, under the guise of gated communities, sports utility vehicles and closed-circuit television and surveillance to examine the security among the inhabitants who reside in these built-up residential areas. Insecurities and fear in the city ‘Illocutionary speech acts’, an idea posited by Ole Wæver (1995) (cited in McDonald, 2008, pp.51-60), mediated through the media together with intensified levels of m... ... middle of paper ... ...ner-city areas (Carter and Davey Smith, 2008, p.172). The city as a built material form highlighted that bricks, mortar, houses and walls are thoroughly implicated in the shaping of the security of cities. The inner city is often subjected to strategies of different kinds of segregation and defence against individuals who are different from us and that this is prompted by a battle of individual insecurity (The Open University, 2013b) In addition, these examples illustrated the materiality of bodies in these inner-city populations and the ways in which these contribute to stereotypical beliefs and biases of the ‘other’ or foreigner (Carter et al., 2008, p. 183). Materiality through the individual and the social are inextricably bound, in seeking greater security; individuals may actually become more insecure and fearful than they were before (Watson, 2008, p.129).
It is not new for a city to repeat negative habits within its community. Friedrich Engels documented the city of Manchester and “the patterns of human movement and decision-making that have been etched into the texture of city blocks, patterns that are then fed back to the Manchester resident themselves, altering their subsequent decisions” (Johnson 199). Friedrich Engel’s study of the behavioral patterns emerging in cities correlates with the Broken Window Theory. The theory deals with minor problems leading to the invitation to more serious
