For most people Houston is a flat city with little or nothing to do. Houstonians themselves don’t really know where to take their guests. This city is known for Space, mostly; then comes Oil, and recently Hurricanes and Astros have put us on the map. The truth about Houston is that it’s an anonymous city, with no real destinations for outsiders. However, the locals think otherwise, maybe.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”grid” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” css=”.vc_custom_1463133451090{padding-top: 50px !important;padding-bottom: 50px !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”226″ img_size=”full” qode_css_animation=””][vc_separator type=”transparent” thickness=”0″ up=”0″ down=”30″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”219″ img_size=”full” qode_css_animation=””][vc_separator type=”transparent” thickness=”0″ up=”0″ down=”30″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”218″ img_size=”full” qode_css_animation=””][vc_separator type=”transparent” thickness=”0″ up=”0″ down=”30″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”grid” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” css=”.vc_custom_1463134132862{padding-bottom: 75px !important;}”][vc_column offset=”vc_col-lg-offset-1 vc_col-lg-10 vc_col-md-offset-1 vc_col-md-10″][vc_column_text]The houstonhood project aims to find Houston’s likability and the places locals love. If you are a local or used to be one at some point in your life, mark the map with the place you like(d) and it’s name. The objective of this activity is to find out what places are liked by people, in and outside of Houston. The main idea is to find out if there is a pattern in the public spaces / places that people like and help planners and designers create more of these places around Houston. Let’s map the likability of Houston.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”parallax” parallax_content_width=”full_width” text_align=”center” background_image=”224″ full_screen_section_height=”no” css=”.vc_custom_1523616520918{background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.5) !important;*background-color: rgb(0,0,0) !important;}”][vc_column][vc_separator type=”transparent” thickness=”0″ up=”0″ down=”166″][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”grid” text_align=”center” css_animation=””][vc_column_inner offset=”vc_col-lg-offset-1 vc_col-lg-10 vc_col-md-offset-1 vc_col-md-10″][icons icon_pack=”font_elegant” fe_icon=”icon_quotations” size=”fa-lg” type=”normal” custom_size=”63″ target=”_self” icon_color=”#000000″ icon_hover_color=”#000000″][vc_separator type=”transparent” thickness=”0″ up=”0″ down=”30″][vc_column_text]
