A very good article in ArchDaily today about Gentrification in cities and presenting both extremes and vastly different contexts. It gives a fresh perspective that doesn't play the tiring good vs. evil card. It instead looks at how these people are coming into a city...as immigrants. I was intrigued by how we really only see people that are poor as being immigrants while those with any kind of money are seen as aliens. I think it's a refreshing take. The obvious places in Houston are...well everywhere lol. Mostly notably Montrose, Midtown, Downtown, The Heights, and it's slowly creeping into the East End. Here is the link: http://www.archdaily.com/540712/what-gentrification-really-is-and-how-we-can-avoid-it/ What do y'all think about this? Looking for any opinions, but please try to keep it clean from mud slinging and good v. evil stuff. Gentrification is a much more complicated thing than some people try to make it out to be.
