Publication: Research on the Relationship between the Accessibility to the Public Space of Communities and the Sense of Community
This paper mainly pays attention to the physical and psychological accessibility to the public space of three different types of communities in Shanghai, which are the Lilong area around Hefei Road, the worker housing around Sujiatun Road and the superblocks around Liyuan Road. After the investigation of the three areas, the physical accessibility of the three communities would be analyzed from two aspects: the physical structure and the boundaries. After the interview with the residents living here, the psychological accessibility which is more closely connected to the sense of community would be summarized and analyzed to the three communities respectively. And then a good community example—Hearthstone Cohousing Community would be given as the comparison. Finally, based on the analysis above, the relationship between the accessibility to the public space and the sense of community would be preliminarily concluded. And also some suggestions would be given to help enhance the sense of community.
