DESCRIPTION:

ULI Hines is an urban design competition open to graduate students. Our team was comprised of a city planner, architect, and two landscape architects from Kansas State University, and one real estate student from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I took a “break� from my master project to collaborate for two intensive weeks. During this time we developed an urban design development proposal, including a pro forma, for an area just North of downtown Nashville, called Sulphur Dell. I have never learned so much in my life. I now have a deep appreciation for the development aspect of designs, and a itch to participate in more competitions and interdiciplinary work.

The Lower Dell uses a flood mitigation strategy which balances engineering improvements with green infrastructure implementation. Currently, the flooding situation in Sulphur Dell renders almost the entire neighborhood unsafe for development. Phase One of The Lower Dell development will introduce the wetlands and a greenway along the Music City Bikeway. Flood-risk areas will decrease with each additional phase as improvements are made to the Central Waste Water Treatment Plant and the combined sewer system, along with proposed green infrastructure in The Lower Dell and further upland.

creating leveraging community natural systems Reunion Ranch is a residential conservation development planned using the careful consideration and preservation of ecological services. Through the preservation of these services, the development can create natural leisure amenities for people, habitats for flora and fauna, and save money on hard infrastructure. Reunion Ranch provides a lifestyle where people can interact with nature on various levels, from the passive to interactive, social to private, and wild to controlled.

ignored affordable landscapes ecologies As an extension of a group project aimed at reconnecting St. Louis to the Mississippi River, my individual project started as an idea that turned old barges into floating, temporal parks. I chose a site on the riverfront where the abandoned trestle runs through and terminates. There are plans in the works to repurpose this trestle. After visiting the site, I observed serious social, functional, and ecological dilemmas in which my Barge Park proposal did not address. Socially, the dilemma was the homeless population just south of my site, deemed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopeville.â&#x20AC;? Functionally, this area is the main hub for industrial activity. Large trucks and railcars are making the area undesirable and unsafe for pedestrians.

Ecologically, the site is contributing to the pollution of the Mississippi River. This is caused by the large amount of runoff flowing through the coals mounds and scrap yards adjacent to the river. My proposal focuses on integrating all of the above existing elements, using their physical form and functions to support a synergetic system that creates affordable ecologies for the existing population, as well as a vibrant mixed-use entertainment area that will provide economical stability.

Plans to repurpose an abandoned trestle into an elevated pedestrian walkway has given this area reason to be activated and developed. The trestle is the spine of this proposal, as it provides a safe elevated circulation route for pedestrians.

adaptable, community driven attractions The mixed-use activity center located at the edge of the Mississippi River provides commerce, amenities, and jobs. To bring people in regionally, a unique attraction was created that celebrates the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s industrial history - a floating park system made from repurposed barges. Barge Park is a landscape of mini ecologies that change with the season (a swimming pool in the summer, ice skating in the winter, putt putt golf in the spring, etc.). Barges containing gardens, green houses, and fishing provide opportunities for affordable occupations and food. The barges create a flexible framework for the community to display their culture and support their needs. This aspect lends a sense of ownership to Barge Park, ensuring itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continued use.

WORKING WITH THE FLOOD LEVEL In addition to being programmatically flexible, the barges also work with the flood levels. Anchored by poles, they can rise and fall with the water level, and by placing the dock on top of them, access to these barges will always be possible.
