Abstract

Prior to the technological breakthroughs of the past two decades, the relationship between neighborhood and sociality had long remained relatively stable. However, Social media and technological innovations have occasioned changes in both lifestyles and urban forms. This research takes a social perspective to analyze the urban space of the city of Tripoli across three main stages. Tripoli has been chosen because the city includes a variety of urban structures and a variety of lifestyles. This study investigates how space affects culture and culture affects spaces in urban design. First, I present three parts of Tripoli’s urban fabric, then provide an overview of residents’ daily lives. I focus on the problems that these residents face because of the urban design of indoor and outdoor spaces as well as the relationship between neighborhood and social activities. I advance a new orientation for evaluating urban design based on social life, assisting urban designers and those responsible for improving residents’ social lives.
