KANSAS CITY, MO, USA


PROJECT BACKGROUND Introduction

Transit Oriented Development is:

Transit Oriented Development is not:

Connected

Isolated

Over the last decade, Kansas City has begun to transform its Downtown into a vibrant and mixed-use neighborhood. Baby boomers and millennials alike are looking to live in places that are walkable and have a strong sense of community. As Downtown Kansas City continues to develop in general and in particular along the new streetcar line, special attention needs to be paid to new development in order to ensure that their overall design supports this significant public investment and contributes to the attractiveness and energy of Downtown. The TOD Policy will provide a foundation to guide both public and private investment at transit stops and along transit corridors. The initiatives in this document range from high-level citywide policy recommendations to specific design standards and the reprioritization of the City’s capital improvement program. The TOD Policy is intended to apply to all potential TOD locations citywide and for all modes of transit (bus, streetcar, and other rail). It is designed to assist with the implementation of existing recommendations in adopted City plans and provide a coherent vision for leveraging transit investments throughout the City.

Information Integration with Sidewalk and Public Space Design transit facilities that thoughtfully integrate into sidewalks and public spaces, in order to enhance the experience for transit users.

Flexible and Dynamic Streets Design streets in TOD areas as dynamic, diverse, flexible places that accommodate a variety of uses, programming and activities in addition to their mobility functions. Streets that can accommodate a range of uses, activities, and interactions support a more active environment throughout the day. Accommodating a variety of uses and experiences on streets can enhance the pedestrian experience and overall livability of TOD areas, and thereby increase the desirability and viability of transit use. In station area planning or review of transitoriented development, the City should encourage streets that are flexible and multipurpose, particularly in major destinations and high activity locations.

Private Use Area If sidewalk space allows, allow the use of this space for cafĂŠs, performers, and food vendors, which contribute to the pedestrian experience.

Mobility Area Should stay clear of any obstructions from other uses like cafe, performances, food trucks, or sitting

PROJECT BACKGROUND

Introduction

Loss of Land over time

The Thunder Valley Regenerative Community Plan was one of the first initiatives to move forward to implementation from the previously adopted Oyate Omnicye | Ogala Lakota Regional Plan for the Pine Ridge Reservation. The goal of the Thunder Valley Regenerative Community is to create a sustainable and interconnected community that provides better housing, places for business to thrive and a healthy supportive environment for youth, elderly and families. The community is envisioned as a living laboratory to build skills, knowledge and capacity for residents. This project explores and refines new ways of living that build on traditional Lakota values to develop innovative, homegrown Native solutions. Through the process of engaging the community in an informed dialogue of discovery led to a huge vision – the vision of a planned community with the highest performance goals of any community in America: 100% water reclamation, 100% energy generation – one of the first net zero energy communities in North America, located at ground zero for poverty.

The Geometery

The design for this regenerative community looks to traditional Lakota geometries and community values for its form as well as modern day practices for compact cooperative communities. There are three circles of single family homes, with each circle having 7 homes. The number 7 represents the seven sacred ceremonies of the Lakota people. These circles and the larger circle containing the commercial district and pow wow grounds open to the east. A green spine corridor connects the homes to the marketplaces, daycare, gym and school. The four directions provide primary ordering system for the circulation as well allow for passive solar orientation of each space.

Brief The project started with a comparative research on the urban form and urban systems of Singapore and Shanghai with emphasis on metropolitan scale, downtown district scale, and river corridor/ waterfront scale. A master plan for the site in Singapore includes a clearly stated vision ; set of urban design principles; framework plan; 3-D urban morphology model; the urban systems and performance, urban design code that described spatial/building /landscape and infrastructural typologies and character; and public realm was developed as an understanding and result of the research. The main ideas for the new development were categorised in four categories of “Site”, “Infrastructure as an Amenity”, “ Sculpted Urban Fabric” and “Natural Systems”. The strategies under “Site” looked into the reorganising of site in a way to create more waterfront, to restore erased narratives in form of historic coastline and to provide oportunity to generate energy in a renewable way by channeling and using oceanic currents for electricity through the shapes of proposed islands. The strategies under “Infrastructure” included ways to provide better living by allowing easy access to green area and blue areas and by provding transit connections to the Buisness District nearby. Under the “Sculpted Fabric” strategies included ways to provide views and visual connections to green area and blue areas, with each building having access to both and generating sense of community by having all residential units located withing waling distance of the community areas. Strategies under “Natural systems” incorporated idea of having a new mode of transport via water, generating clean water on site from sea water by of tidal flooding at high tide and use of climate responsive Architecture.

Brief This design explored approaches to the urbanistic project and various factors unique to site like underlying structures, scales, relationships, and spatial and programmatic potentials and allowed me to design and understand the complexities related to metropolitan landscapes and the inter-related issues of sustainability, human use patterns, and various urban and natural systems. St. Louis is a city in decline. with major industeries leaving the city, areas like industrial park on grand has been deserted. This provides a good oppurtunity to develop the abandoned areas into developments that will support the still flourishing sector of medicine and botonical studies. As the site lies between the divided campus of St. Louis university, the development will become a prototype for various other areas in the city which have similar urban conditions. The ideas for the masterplan was of creating a Transit oriented development while generating a dynamic community through the help of diverse mixed urban use and high density. As the site has been under the effect of various industrial pollutants, it became a necessary requirement to do a site remedation which also allowed for an opportunity to develop a greenway that connects the two sides through pedestrian walkways and also provide for activity areas on local scale as well as on regional scale.

Design Charotte-Ballpark Village

Brief St. Louis has lost almost half of its population and many industries over the last 5 decades. This has impacted the downtown. The famous Gateway Arch now stands among buildings which have been abandoned. When the busch stadium was rebuilt, the old parcel next to the stadium became available for development. This is an opportunity to develop the parcel and bring back people to the downtown and make it a vibrant place once again. As a one day design exercise, Ball Park Village project was a design idea presentation for the empty parcels next to Busch stadium in downtown St. Louis. Most of the work was done by hand and later translated into digital format later. The idea and strategies were governed by the importance of iconic buildings like the stadium and Arch in the neighbourhood and were based on the assumption that they will be catalyst or a pull factor, once a nice neighboorhood is designed and built in the downtown. The site level strategies incorporated ideas of cross connections, Street Heirarchy, Pedestrian friendly environment, setting up public space heirarchy and use of Urban form typologies to incorporate a sense of safety and and a dynamic neighborhood through mixed use development as compared to single use urban typology that exists at present.

PROJECT BACKGROUND Design Brief

DESIGN STRATEGIES

This project was initiated by the government of punjab to revitalize the urban core of old city of amritsar from tourism point of view. Old city is home to the Golden temple, the most important shrine of Sikhism and Jaliawala bagh, an area of national importance. The project was started by finding the potential and hurdles in development, specifically in inner core areas of the old city. An urban revitalization study was done which proposed 4 different projects for the comprehensive redevelopment. As a result of the findings it was decided to introduce bus routes in such way so as to connect all the important areas and also to serve the community as a part of city public transport system. The old city has 4 gates, part of the old city wall and are located on major roundabouts around the old city. These gates were measured and the extent of damages was recorded and conservation team developed the plan for the restoration of these gates. A new proposal was given for correcting the roundabouts geometry and for making the areas around gates more pedestrian friendly, along with better signage system and street furniture. Artifacts and statues were installed on roundabouts for unique identity of the areas. Town hall which is currently being used as local law enforcement agency’s office, was proposed to be converted into a collection point for all the tourists, because of to its proximity to both the golden temple and jaliawala bagh. The renovated town hall will house galleries, food courts, tourist information centre while functioning as a heritage monument showcasing the historical architecture of the old city.

PROJECT BACKGROUND Design Brief

DESIGN PROPOSAL

Shantigram is a sub urban development proposal for a developing group by the name of Adani group. This design proposal was an entry to the competition held by Adani group for the design of Luxurious single family houses and High rise Multi family residential buildings along with amenities like golf course, club house and commercial area. The pupose of the proposal was to create a thriving residential area with ample amenities and open spaces. The three important approaches towards the design of the Master Plan were : 1. To provide space for maximum no. residences to support the retail and offices in the central hub of the sub urban development. 2. To create open spaces that are flexible in their usage and also serve as green infrastructure. 3. To respect the desire for privacy in residential area, while allowing for permeability to enhance social interaction between the residents.

Master Plan

This combined approach will help in developing a residential area that could successfully support the central hub and make the sub-urban development in shantigram an economically and urbanizistically vibrant central hub.

CITY CENTER REDEVELOPMENT Brief The project was part of architectural thesis studio, a requirement for completion of the bachelors degree in architecture. The city of epsoo invited entries for the international competition “ideas competition for the city hall and the city centre blocks of espoo� to mark 550th birth anniversary of the city. The objective of the competition was to propose design ideas to rejuvenate the city centre and the neighbouring blocks so as to develop the area into a strong Urban Centre. As the seat of governance, the city hall is a special building type which is likely to represent intangible concepts such as power, authority and legitimacy in the community. The city hall, whether as a single building or as a building complex can have a catalytic effects on the neighborhoods. The city hall combined with museums, libraries and new well located retail spaces can all spur further urban development. The design concept is based on the idea of bio mimicry. By using the double helix structure of dna molecule for the architectural form, the birth and growth of city in time is sculpted in form of an architectural entity. Molecular diagram of a dna was used for developing the concept and design of public spaces in and around the urban centre.

The perception of builing from the city and vice versa is such as to symbolize the connection between the City people and the Government choosen by them. Building with no specific side or corner symbolizes the idea of equality and connects with its immediate surroundings and context on all sides

The module is taken and a pattern formed to create an interactive network.. The intent is not to lead to a monotonous arrangement but increate identity and variety, choice and spatial richness, yet through the use of a repetitive mass-produced system.

RECTIFYING SOCIAL INJUSTICE @VASANT VIHAR Brief As a studio exercise, the project was a search for new planning typologies, which are contrary to the elitist attitude and are inclusive of urban poor. The idea is not to consider the urban poor as a burden but as an indispensable asset necessary for the social well being and economic growth of the society. The aim was to investigate a typical multifunctional urban typology that locates the rich and poor in non interfering symbiotic relationship with each other. The new typology also considered public transport and sustainable development as one of the models of the development. The masterplan was developed with these ideas as focus. A new approach was introcuced that included strategies which were aimed at the inclusion of the economic weaker section. This was done by dispersing them throughout the site and making them a part of overall development. All the existing green spaces were consolidated to create meaningfull areas of activities and amenities for the residents of the area. A new system of transport heirarchy was proposed which incorporated public transit as one of its element. All major nodes of the vehicular and pedestrian crossings were proposed as vibrant public spaces with commercial and social land use typology for enhancing the community feeling in the residents. The proposal allowed for varied degree of commercial typology and created a system where all the basic aminities for the elite as well as urban poor were withiin walking reach and also provided for employment opportunities for people withing walking distance.

MULTIPLE HOUSING COMPLEX Brief The sense of ownership, identity and individuality is gradually losing its role from the design process in the fast growing Housing market of India. This not only affects the built mass but is also affecting the open spaces. Large group of Tall monotonous residential buildings with common, closed greens is further secluding the users from the common areas which are rapidly losing there importance as social and cultural center for the community. The project was an in depth research about the usage of spaces on individual basis as well as a community in a multiple apartment complex and the ways to attain a balance between a housing unit which is an extreme private space with large community spaces which are on the far extreme of public spaces spectrum. The Housing semester in school gave us an opportunity to research in issues pertaining to Housing in India and we as a group of three chose to pursue the issue of social, community and personal identity of spaces in conjunction with design of multiple apartments in Gurgaon, Haryana.

Community Voids The degree of individual and community identity varies from culture to culture. In India, the sense of community spaces CONCEPT is not strong and such spaces end up being piled with garbage or turn into large, barren open spaces which fail to link up the housing units. To inculcate a sense of community identity, it becomes important to ‘privatize’ the community greens into smaller community spaces with 6-8 units per floor ‘owning’ it. The people who use the space are able to relate to the scale and develop a sense of responsibility as a collective group.

Pattern and Geometry

Axis and View

The shape and the general appearance of a cluster must make it stand out as an easily identifiable entity, so that it can become the personalized property of the families that live there. Need for identity in the dwelling appears to be a basic human need. The form of the housing is punctuated with community voids which form the hub of every cluster and provide an essential outdoor space which can also be used for community gatherings. These punctures in the housing mass also create a rich visual experience.

“The sun doesn’t stand still, it goes round in an arc, changes every moment of the day, and from one day to next. If we were to make arrangement of houses that took this fact into consideration, then through response to the function, one would arrive at the most complex and visual arrangement in space .”
