ISS 320 Final Exam Review Who were the pieds noir (the ‘black feet’) in Algeria? The native Algerians that inhabited Algeria before the French came to “colonize them”. They were seen as inferior in need of social order. Basically, the French thought the Algerians would be better off if they were more like the French, and the Algerians were not like the French, so they were seen as lower. How did the 1991 plan for the reconstruction of Beirut adopt modern urban planning guidelines? Discuss with reference to Le Corbusier. The Solidere plan was in favor of large boulevards, areas defined by function such as business districts, entertainment districts, and residential districts. The plan included extravagant buildings with many geometric angles and an image entirely different than the rest of Beirut. The plan would have been enthusiastically approved by Le Corbusier especially because of the creation of districts separating buildings by function. He was also have appreciated the geometric shapes and embracing of modernity that the plan entailed. Later, the plan was modified because it was found that the creating of districts created an uneven flow of people. The business district would be busy only during business hours, and during business hours the entertainment district was low, but by combing districts and functions the flows are evened and there is a constant flow of people throughout the city.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
