Transcript of Cultural Context- Delft group 2- Gentrification Analysis-

HYPOTHESIS DELFTWARE. GENTRIFICATION. METHODOLOGY. TIMELINE. The objective of the investigation on the city of Delft is to generate an analysis into the presence or lack of presence of gentrification within the area. The large shift from a booming industrial city into an educational, technological city provokes many questions regarding the ways in which Delft is preserved and changed in various areas and to what extent. With around 13000 students, TU Delft would cause one to expect aspects of gentrification to have occurred or be occurring at present. Gentrification

1. The buying and renovation of houses and stores in deteriorated urban neighborhoods by upper- or middle-income families or individuals, thus improving property values but often displacing low-income families and small businesses.

2. An instance of gentrifying; the condition of being gentrified. Image - Side street near old city center of Delft. "I could tell you how many steps make up the streets rising like stairways and the degree of the arcades' curves, and what kind of zinc scales cover the roofs; but i already know this would be the same as telling you nothing" - 'Invisible Cities', Calvino, Italo The Dutch East India Company based an office in Delft during the 17th century.
This improved global trade, with large imports of Porcelain being brought over from China.
Its popularity caused competition and resulted in imitation Porcelain known as Delftware.
This is now sold all over the world and is still being successfully manufactured even today. This will be done using various primal recording and descriptive techniques which will then be paralleled with factual data to give an idea which side of the gentrification scale Delft lies within. CONCLUSION - Gentrification HAS occurred since the decline of the pottery industry.

Influx of young creative types set about by the re-focus of attention towards TU-University

Geographic location and the historic preservation plays part in maintaining Delft as a desirable location

Displacement of residents who can not afford increasing rent prices to Delfts edges

How would the declining industrial landscape look if gentrification had not occured? Initial research led the way for methods that would be used to explore the city of Delft once there. 'Invisible Cities' by Italo Calvino was the main provocateur for the ways that Delft could be explored personally. George Orwells 'Down and Out in Paris and London' was also a piece that gave ideas on how the physical and social landscape could be explored and expressed. 'Invisible Cities' acted as the provocateur to the personal exploration of Delft, as a previously unvisited location in a way similar to that of 13th century explorer Marco Polo.
