  • The Character Study Project (CSP) | PennDesign
    A methodological framework was discussed with local partners from the City of Philadelphia and the preservation community then expanded into a pilot study for local testing The pilot was conducted in Philadelphia s Lower Northeast planning district in January 2012 It included classification fieldwork and analysis and concluded in the incorporation of results into the Philadelphia Planning Commission s Lower Northeast District Plan It successfully demonstrated character studies efficacy yielding focused useful data in a short time period and producing an analysis of historic resource patterns over a complex six square mile district The next step envisioned for the CSP is implementing character studies for the rest of the city in coordination with each of the 16 remaining District Plans and with the ongoing cooperation of the Planning Commission Historical Commission and Preservation Alliance and conducting outreach about the methodology to other towns cities and regions For more information contact Prof Randall Mason at rfmason design upenn edu Open publication Free publishing Downloads Character Study Project Report Methodology The stages outlined here and illustrated in the attached graphic provide a flexible approach that can be adapted to many cities unique landscapes and situations A pilot study in Philadelphia in January 2012 tested and refined the methodology Fieldwork Fieldwork develops a sense of local history and geography Initially it involves examining historic and current maps with attention to typical and unique development patterns and buildings Surveyors meet with City planning and preservation staff to get a quick and clean orientation to the study area including an overview of local history and areas and buildings of interest Later Fieldwork stages include assessing selected properties for integrity in a windshield survey and field checking boundaries of potential historic districts Research In the Research stage surveyors learn about the study area s historic context and classify current and historic maps to reveal the area s contemporary built character and its evolution This stage draws extensively on digital tools GIS and web to allow coverage of a large area in a short time It provides the basis for understanding major development eras and themes that manifest in the built environment Synthesis This stage synthesizes data from research and fieldwork tying geographical and historical development patterns to the contemporary built environment In the Significance stage surveyors examine the evolution of the current landscape consider information from the Rapid Historic Context Statement and set criteria for properties to be surveyed Post survey stages include Analysis where potential historic resources are mapped and Final Products Engagement The Engagement stages acknowledge that public support is important to sustainable preservation and that community members have information about local resources that cannot otherwise be discovered in a character study s short timeline General public participation is folded into area plan meetings to reach people not already involved with preservation and conserve resources Other Engagement stages come at the end of the character study process when character studies final products are used to engage community members and City staff and develop broader
