DELIBERATELY DOWNTOWN District Masterplan

- Downtown Miami, Florida

Miami Dade’s planning division requested a vision, for the Government Center campus, that would keep it relevant, in an increasingly competitive, public conscious. The government center’s position, adjacent to tourism, residential, businesses and art districts, led to its manifestation as a logistics district. The issues, with bulleted solutions, for the city were:

CONNECTIVITY

• Access creation between residences and a nearby commercial center • Designing a pedestriancentered, walkable campus • Crossing the river

1

SCALE

• Rescaling for higher density • Instilling a hierarchy that emphasize the Stephen P. Clark Government Center • Promenade widths create residential and transient walkways

IDENTITY

• Architecture conveys a campus of government, deliberation and planning • Bi-colored pavers emphasize equality of perspectives • Capitalizes on existing metro rails to emphasize main circulatory patterns

Analysis revealed that functional public space was lacking. This is despite the county owning a good portion of land. Also, the space lacked connectivity and variety of scales, that would be essential to enjoyment. Looking at the site’s context, the best use was also decided to be a democratic logistics center. The hypothesis that then arose was: By increasing program diversity in the Government Center, a greater variety of citizens will be enticed to participate. A greater variety will result in more accurate representation in city democracy and brand the site as a place for such.

Sea level rise, also, provided an opportunity to create a waterfront experience by connecting the, now walkable, Deliberately Downtown site to the Brickell City Centre. The move reinforces the site’s north - south circulation as well as giving further reason for residents of Overtown to pass through. The resulting campus is more varied. A community park, lots of shade (provided by circulating under the metro and plenty of plantings) and greater recreational opportunities, ensures that the area is desirable for living.

SINKING CITY

City Masterplan - Hialeah, Florida

Students were tasked with creating a sustainable view of Hialeah, Florida. One that would incorporate ten feet of sea level rise. In doing so, retreat strategies and resident quality of life was considered. How can the City of Progress progress rapidly, while still maintaining the human qualities, that make life worthwhile? The issues, with bulleted solutions, for the city were:

SEA LEVEL RISE

• Development on highest elevations • Western regions are less urban in a retreat strategy

5

QUALITY OF LIFE

• The unity of the gradient quells climate change caused disparity • Flexible city block designation


Analysis revealed inadequacies in sea level rise preparedness, living density, land use, and circulation.

CYBATHIC PARK

Community Park - Vladdeck Houses, Manhattan, New York

The year is 2070. Increased construction and organizational capabilities have resulted in Manhattan’s quality of life being far lower than it is in the year 2020. The lower east side’s density now resembles that of Kowloon Walled City, China. At the same time, humanity is merging with machine, resulting in a being labeled: transhuman. These new entities operate public spaces in atypical ways. Their heightened mobility calls for design to be the bridge between old and new. The issues, with bulleted solutions, for the neighborhood were:

OVERBUILDING

• Underground park • Vertical farming

HYPER MOBILITY

• Vertical circulation • Rooftop park
