Reflection and proposition
By Clyde Overton
Originally discussing my problem statements in class as well as those in other classes, I found my proposed propositions lacklustre and not defined enough for a thorough proposition design. I found finding a proposition difficult due to the already established solutions that are more or less currently in place. From this I was able to build upon that and further find a problem within that. I originally intended to further explore the current urban density of Sydney, however I found that direction lacked a strong basis to work upon due to the broad information of urban density within Sydney. I began to resolve my proposition around renters and the current market. For my proposition about the renting sector, I am going to more or less explore why people chose to rent if they can actually purchase a property, and compare first home renters to first home buyers from both an area perspective. With the proposition additionally containing the comparison of first home renters to first home buyers, more or less compliments with the set 18-24 year old age bracket. Through my past research of housing affordability, I did a more or less general overview of the topic. Through my probe research, I was able to find the original basis of my proposition, therefore I was able to find a more defined area of research. The proposition will be a data visualisation of the research that I have done and the data translated into three insights.
After 7 or so weeks, 10 blog posts later, they are finally done. These blog posts have broaden my mind on the topic of housing affordability in a more thorough and researched format. This in turn has helped myself to gain a much more stronger insight in housing affordability in a stage where I myself am currently looking into.
