The purpose of this thesis is to study the relationships between people in the City of Memphis, whether they are part of the community or visitors. Each individual’s experience with the city starts somewhere, and the continued experience shapes local, regional, national, and international perceptions of the City of Memphis.Creating spaces that encourage interaction with the surrounding community can help foster positive relationships and understanding of the culture in the city. This thesis strives to create these spaces and to provide amenities to all, while embracing the values that reflect both the history of the city and the progressive movement towards a healthier, more sustainable city.
