I got this thread after taking a search in the forum:
http://www.archsociety.com/e107_plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?1973
Is this you there? You may send a PM to the admin to retrieve your old ID and Password, he might help you out.

Anyway... the phrase 'neighborhood design' is not very clear. A design may be 'for' a neighborhood, but is it possible to design a neighborhood?
Anyway it should not be a 'selection' rather it should be a thorough analysis upon a specific neighborhood then the analysis would say you what to do for the betterment of that neighborhood. Find out what actually they need, which function may serve them well, which function may develop the living standard, entertainment, pedestrian pathways, traffic movements etc.
Then you'll get the answer automatically what to do.
As you have done a research on Social Interaction, now you take a real work area, a real neighborhood and try to find out how to develop the Social Interaction among them. You may come up with a city center containing some new walkways, park, entertainment and shopping facilities etc. Those decisions should come up only after the analysis of needs and possibilities of a specific area. That's the only process.
Wish you best of luck.

Local is 'study' not 'case study'
Just go and jump into in your study area, find out the issues, needs, climatic and cultural factors....
As far I'm concerned, Pakistan has a problem of the conflict among different races... Sindhi, Punjubi etc.
I think you'll get the same conflict in the communities near you (or may not!). If there's anything which creates segregation between communities.. then try to join it through urban design and architecture. Make the bridge of stronger relationship among different communities.
That would be the ultimate goal of a project which deals with 'social interactive space'.

So I think if you start directly from a real community or neighborhood it would better than roaming around here and there for case studies.
