The just and beautiful city : concepts of aesthetics and justice in contemporary american urbanism


his project investigates methods for addressing social injustices by reconciling equity planning with aesthetic design. The paper includes an analysis of Susan Fainstein \u27s criteria for the just city, a review of environmental aesthetics theories, and an overview of theories that have reconciled justice and aesthetics previously. The project utilizes two case studies-Atlanta, Georgia\u27s BeltLine and Norfolk, Virginia\u27s waterfront redevelopment-to gauge the relevancy of these theories in current planning practices. Based on the findings, this paper argues that the just city should encompass equity, diversity, democracy, and beauty, which ought to be maximized in current and future plans for American cities
