The diagram shown explains the intent of this program as mentioned in the preface. The intent is to give the reader a visual component of the question. Can architecture build community image? Image and the perception of image is an important idea in how communities develop. A bad perception of a community or a poor community image will leave a community in decay. When this poor image is strengthen over time this leads to the disintegration of the community from the rest of its city. Through architecture that re-builds that community image in a positive manner revitalization can occur because there is a better perception of the area. This leads to pride in the community and economic development.
