There’s a lot to get through in this week’s blog…. the research development.

So, I want to question my research development when I visit Leederville so that I can formulate our concept for the festival.

Research question development is the initial process of questioning “what’s wrong” after developing a problem statement and then test the theories based on information found before conclusion. Lipowski (2008, p. 1667) quotes “Research is designed to generate information that cannot be gained from any other source.”

What is its identity?

  • Does it resemble any other suburb?
  • Where’s the history?
  • What is the Town of Vincent overall development plans?

Environment Sustainability

  • Does it have one?

Wayfinding

  • Does it have one? and is it clear to distinguish?
  • What’s it traffic like and its there any crossroads?

Entertainment

  • How many venues of nightclubs and bars?
  • Any venue for kids?

Transportation

  • What’s the prefer mode? IS there enough car parks? What are the parking fees like? Does it encourage people to come?
  • What’s the public transport like? Is it convenient?

Food

  • What’s the range like?
  • How competitive is it?
  • Is it value for money?

Retail

  • What’s the store look like? Does it fit in with the overall look?
  • What’s the price range?
  • Shoppable space?
  • What’s the range like?

Well… firstly, I managed to get statistics on the demographics of Leederville from Domain (2012).

Age Between 20 and 39: 41%Median is :34
Marital Status Never Married: 44%
Occupation Prof: 18% Clerk/sales:  9%
Income Indiv: $715 Fam: $1811
Nature of Occupancy 41% Rent, 30% Owed
Education 75% working, 10% Uni

So how does this all fit in with our design? And what is our design proposal for Leederville festival? Tune in for Week 8 where I discuss our concept and inputs.

Have a good one,

Dawn
