This time at the terrace was different than any other time I have been there. The use of the terrace did not appear to be first time users or tourist, but regulars. We first saw a group of guys just hanging out. What made me even more impressed was the group of children that came running down with screams of joy. They were middle school aged, playing on the tires, enjoying the adventure of the terrace. I believe that the terrace is becoming more popular and used by the local people.
Besides the people, there were other signs of use. Like usual, there were a lot of cigarettes and dog poop on the ground. Also, the chairs had been moved around.
Also, Talia came down with her parents to show them the terrace. Later on in the week I showed my parents the terrace as well. We (the students) are proud to be a part of this placemaking project and want to show others.
After doing this observation I can see how the terrace has a multifunctional purpose. It is a place for relaxation, for play, and for beauty.
