Understanding the Inner Richmond

Relative to the city of San Francisco, the Inner Richmond district represents a typical urban neighborhood. In total it occupies a .6 square mile swath of the city, 95 acres of which are open space. The district is primarily residential, and hence, has a density that is 57% higher than the city average. Through this investigation, it was determined that the average intra-block is 1 acre and the interventions presented in the following section reflect the scale of the intra-block. By measuring in accordance with the acre, we were able to profile a typical intra-block, looking at density, green space,  and permeability.   In reference to anthropology, this study also looked at usage of resources, accessibility of public spaces, and income. The data presented illustrates the lack of sustainable resources within the community as well as the profile of the population.
