dc.description.abstractLike many forms of artistic expression, an urban environment is comprised of both positive and negative spaces. Positive spaces are areas that are purposefully developed, while negative spaces are unintentionally developed voids in between. As cities evolve, some negative spaces transform to become vibrant and integral parts of the urban environment, while others remain dormant, lacking a distinct purpose or identity, posing potential threats to the city and its residents. In this study, I initially formulated criteria for a spatial audit to identify potential urban voids in Nanaimo’s Downtown area. Subsequently, through case studies, conducting interviews with a city planner and an architect, and delving into relevant literature research, I endeavoured to propose programs or design solutions as recommendations for the revitalization of these identified spaces.
