Concept Development

Complete working Product A bug that illuminates: this design was inspired by the interplay of light and dark segments of a coiled millipede. The lamp mimics the outer shell of the millipede with the dark segments being the lamp frame and the light segments being the light emitted by the lamp. I was tasked with generating the concept the fabrication work was shared equally amongst my group mates and I.

What happens when everything; social, educational, emotional and physical enters a “zero point” after which everything can be reformatted, enters into new and different experiences, and is launched in new directions. In other words a point where everything starts, and comes together ; a centre, a null/point zero.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION Brief The client was forced to sell his plot of land in the city to give way for urban developments. However he managed to

CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT

retain a small strip of land where he required a small studio apartment with character. Design Elements • The concept of Flower gardens common to most residential homes is adopted and replicated vertically. • The gardens create privacy and also maintain the character of horizontals on the façades characteristic of high-rise city structures.

Wrapped

• Roof profile is simple and allows for easy rainwater collection to be used in the drip irrigation system to water the plants. Urban Facade

PROJECT DESCRIPTION In the broader perspective the city of Moss requires a competitive edge in the wide anticipated Oslo region development proposal. The main goal is thus to achieve this competitive edge over other cities but also be able to complement them. Moss as a city is physically and psychologically separated by water, terrain and transport mediums. One is always crossing over one thing to get to another thing. The project seeks to blur these barriers and instead have these edges as part of the city core through extension in various and dynamic ways. The project focuses on the Harbour site because it encompasses all the above mentioned barriers and as a site itself, it is at the edge of the city. And is a transition from the city scape to the sprawling countryside. The proposal seeks to have a diversity of activities, functions, landscapes all of which complement the city core and do not take away from it. In a way , an octopus arm of the Moss city core.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION China is a large country and this comes with constraints but a multitude of positives as well. This is mainly with a diversity in climate, cultures and settlement styles and patterns, ancient, modern and the post, modern etc. The project celebrates this diversity mainly through movement and transition between places and spaces. This is due to the fact that China is a very transit oriented country with people commuting every day to work and other things. The downside is the effect of automobiles on the environment hence the project is focussed around sustainable means of transport. Considering the history of Zhangjiakou city, inspiration is taken from the defunct railway line terminating at the city centre. The track is over 100 years old and tracing it from the south train station shows a transition not only through a dynamic array of building typologies and land uses but also a movement through the history of Zhangjiakou’s development. The project works with existing building patterns and rhythms but also introduces new typologies and multifunction structures. There is also a vegetation cover shortage with the site having only 8.39% thus the creation of an urban green structure. In relation the proposal uses green roofs for water infiltration as well as harnessing wind and solar energy.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION This thesis project focuses on tackling the challenges of Urban sprawl and Climate change in Kampala City, the capital of Uganda through the development of a resilient sustainable urban community that re-envisions a new type of urban dwelling for the future. Sprawl is curtailed by densifying within the city, particularly areas that are inefficiently used. I chose an industrial area as the site for my design project in lieu of the fact that the City Authority plans to move industries out of the city to an industrial park outside the city. This presents an opportunity to redevelop these industrial areas as new multifunctional mixed developments. Secondly, the site location in a low lying area provides a unique palette to design for climate change particularly increased rainfall. The project is developed in phases and the thesis details phase one of the development. This development is driven by five resilience principles; Increase bio diversity, Build Urban ecological friendly networks and connections, Design for Multi- functionality, Use of modular systems design and Adaptive Design.

Phase one of the project, involves the development of the site through the use of urban acupuncture at three points on the site. These three points are influenced by a transit oriented development and are the proposed light rail stations. These are the points from which the development and activity begins and then radiates inwards through the site and toward the Nakivubo Canal. The design focuses on adapting to flood risk which is predicted due to future climatic changes in the site area particularly its location within a flood plain. A storm and rainwater drainage and retention system is developed and ties the projects together. The site storm water system works together with the existing Nakivubo channel that is this the main drainage Canal for Kampala’s storm water. The design proposal further integrates flood alleviation strategies on the Canal and the built environments as well as all fabrics of the urban development from transit to agriculture. In addition to that the project development touches the earth lightly by minimising the building footprint and creating over 75% of the new development area as outdoor public space and infiltration zones. The projects also brings urban design all the way down to the micro -level in the design of the neighbourhoods that provide a variety of functions and cater to different social groups creating a dynamic and diverse mixed community.
