amsterdam zuideramstel, amsterdam my role and responsibilities

During my undergraduate studies at the faculty of Architecture at the University of Technology in Delft I mainly worked on individual projects except from this one. During the design of a new city hall for the district of Amsterdam Zuideramstel I worked with three other students on the design. All students had their own design task: architecture, building technology, facade design and climate design. I took responsibility for the building technology but also renderings and models of the final design were made by me. In cooperation with the architect I designed the main-construction in such a way that the overall concept of a sunken building with patios and flexible floorplans could be made possible. While designing hand-in-hand with the architect I dealt with the construction of columns, beams and floors as well as with the construction of the glazed patios. 1.009.076, when parking becomes a tool for urban reorganization

chicago, united states of america my role and responsibilities

While living in Chicago for my exchange project I got fascinated by the public life in such a big city. Especially traffic attracted me. Cars driven or parked on either side of the road and also parking structures dominate streets that once were designed for different purposes, the automobile threatens to destroy the fabric by which cities are defined. Together with one fellow student we spent time together looking for innovative solutions to give streets back to the public life. In the early stage of the design we started with an in depth research together. After we set the concept we splitted up to finish our proposal. To make clear to others what our idea was I shot a movie of how the city can develop according to our ideas. Afterwards I made collages and a model, while my fellow student took responsibility for finishing the research and setting up diagrams and schemes. the wall, preparing for china’s urban billion

chengdu, china my role and responsibilities

My graduation project contained two projects that were interlinked. Both are presented in this portfolio. The first project I worked on with two friends. We took part in a competition called ‘Vertical Cities Asia’. We worked together simultaneously on widespread research on the topics of China, urbanization, urban sprawl and sustainability. After we set a welldefined concept we splitted up and I worked on diagrams that were related to our research, but I also made line-drawings such as floorplans and sections of our design proposal. I also presented the project during a symposium in Singapore, where we won the second prize among nineteen other proposals during the competition. The second part was the individual part of the project, during this part I took responsibility of everything that belongs to architectural design: setting up a concept, diagrams, drawings such as floorplans, sections and elevations as well as details and renderings. Finally I had to present the project to graduate. my fascination, inspiration and imagination

In this part of my abridged version of my portfolio one can find some images and explanations of what I am interested in. What are my fascinations, inspirations and imaginations? Why did I wanted to become an architect? I am fascinated by how cities work, but also buildings standing as individual elements within these cities are attracting me. How do cities and buildings influence public life, but also the people individually or the environment? Is there a way I can contribute to this in a positive manner? What kind of person am I? I am a goalkeeper in a football-team, what does that say about my character? And why do I love travelling so much? In this part of my abridged portfolio one can find answers on these questions.

summary

The design for a new city hall for the area of Amsterdam Zuideramstel deals with three keywords which stand for the democratic community: citizen, democracy and the government. The subdivision of these three themes provide a recognizable and readable design; typical houses which refer to the citizens, a public square that refers to the community and democracy and finally a set of offices for the government. A combination of these elements result in a building but no square, in other words in the loss of the democracy. Going underground results in a public square that is accessible from all sides. The simplified houses give the design its iconic appearance.

summary

The failure of modern urban planning is a direct result of the success of the automobile. The automobile threatens to destroy the fabric by which cities are defined. In spite of this fact the automobile is not something to fear, but rather must become a tool in the hands of urban planners. We must exploit the weaknesses of the automobile and use them to create new diverse neighborhoods that facilitate urban evolution.

P

What if parking wasn’t an architectural afterthought? What if it was the most important structure within a community? We propose to use parking, the parking structure, and their manipulation to shape urban communities. We propose the relocation of parking to a central structure servicing the surrounding .25 mile community. We propose condensing the number of possible destinations within the city. We propose creating areas of heightene social interaction around these centralized structures. By changing the principles and characteristics on which the city has been defined in the past, we can lay the canvas for new urban structures, programs, and human interactions.

PROGRAM

OPEN CITY

ce Commercial Manufacturing Single Unit Housing Multiple Unit Housing

Typology Organization Form Density Aesthetics

Parking ratios and cost of parking can be adjusted to cause a reorganization of the urban environment.

Parking Garage

Public Transit

The main proposal:

Condense Transportation Off-street Parking

1) Allows city to manipulate urban areas by adjusting the number and cost of parking spaces.

Surface Parking

Street Parking

2) Creates a hybrid transportation infrastructure that includes the car, bus, light rail, and the pedestrian. 3) Limited and carefully placed street parking help to create new areas of urban stimulus. The parking structure becomes more than a warehouse for the automobile. Various programs needed within the community are inserted and condensed into the parking structure. The parking garage becomes the source of community identity. Rather than an eyesore the parking structures help to define and unite the community around it.

* runner-up – ufd-e.on teamwork award 2012’ * 2nd price award – vertical cities asia 2011 summary

The Chinese cities grew enormously last decades, spreading to almost infinity. Almost a billion people will live in the cities by 2025. A sharp, radical and significant course change to a new urban model is necessary to guide China towards a balanced future. The Wall can be this guide. The city of Chengdu forms the perfect study-case for this. If we would project the estimated population growth in Chengdu in the same space-consuming manner as the last decade, we would almost need to build a second city of a similar size by 2030. But the current fingermodel of the city will grow out of proportion, precious land will be eaten, resulting in urban sprawl and traffic congestion. Because of the growing distances the inhabitants become more dependent on cars and more ring-roads need to be built. Traffic jams and an increase of air pollution will be inevitable. Chengdu’s development will gradually slow down, become more congested and will decrease in livability and efficiency. The finger model is no longer sustainable. We have to look for a new urban model that cater to a greater population without compromising the quality of life.

doomsday

What if we stop the urban sprawl by densifying the current city edge? We propose a new urban ‘wall’ around the city. This ‘wall’ makes the transition between landscape and city manifest. Big openings and vistas make sure the ‘wall’ feels porous and open. The Wall can not only give the opportunity to further densify the city, accommodate the projected population growth, but it can also function as a framework for applying ideas in a larger context. The Wall will not be dealt with as separate masterplans or buildings with air purifiers, air conditioners or other building techniques, but it is an integral plan with a series of parallel strategies that truly can have the potential to tackle bad air quality (the competitions brief)! According to the Environmental Protection Agency of Chengdu (2009), the main contributors to bad air quality today are transport and industry (Streets & Waldhoff, 2000). Research (2009 shows that China could bring its cities to a Level III air quality standard (defined as China’s “safety level”) through a combination of transport and industry strategies.

the wall as holistic strategy

Can the Wall address the challenges that face China? The challenges will not be dealt with as separate tasks but, rather as a holistic strategy. Not only the flow of people, but flow of energy, waste, water, fauna and flora. Traffic congestion and sprawled industries are decreased therefore having a major effect on air quality. Water can be purified and used as drinking water or for other uses like the shower or toilets. Wast can be collectively dealt with trough out the whole Wall. Biodiversity and vegetation in the landscape can be untouched. Migrants from rural areas can move to the Wall, overlooking the farmland on one hand, and on the other hand see the opportunities of the city. Food can still be produced in the landscape and collectively transported in a short distance to the Wall. new chinese walls

The Chinese cities grew enormously last decades, spreading to almost infinity. The idea of the Chinese Wall can be projected at different cities. 350 million people will be added to China’s urban population by 2025. 40 billion sqm of floor space will be built. The urban Walls can accommodate this growth, making the urbanization more concentrated and sparing the scarce landscape. The cities would grow to dense super cities. This generates the most GDP per capita, is more energy efficient and it would contain the loss of arable land. Implementing the Wall as a new urban model could be easier than it might seem as the current dispersed model approaches its limits. In fact, the Chinese national leadership recognizes and implicitly supports a sharp, radical and significant course change to a new urban model; it calls for an industrial and economic rebalancing to achieve a more harmonious society in the 12th Five Year Plan. These new Walls can guide this rebalancing. They can be the second Great Chinese Walls to be erected, therefore preparing China for its urban billion!

urban reorganization + sustainability master 4 2011-2012

summary

The buildings within The Wall are based on Chinese building typologies, which were primarily based on the principle of enclosure and separation. Chinese always have had a place to meet, to come together, to commune in a secure atmosphere. That’s why the courtyard typologies are the basis for the urban infill of The Wall. But due to globalization, rapid expansion and mega-projects, cities in general are becoming increasingly homogeneous and soulless. It becomes an alien world for most people. It is little surprise that most withdraw from community involvement to enjoy their own private and limited worlds. And since cities can only be experienced through living, working, travelling and the like, I discovered it is important to add an extra scale to The Wall, the scale of the neighbourhood. Industries, public transport, museums, libraries and universities have been clustered within the so-called spine, the backbone of The Wall. This area supports global life. But for people it is important to have places where more local life can take place and people want to be freed from their isolated apartments. Therefore I want to create a public space within the high dense area of The Wall. A so-called communal living room, where children can play, where adults can practice sports, or where elderly can do their morning exercises. Or just do what they always wanted to do: karaoke.

Therefore I looked for a building shape that supports this public life. By lifting up a part of the building, the inner courtyard becomes part of the urban life, while the building itself reacts on its surroundings; it orientates itself towards the landscape and gives the sun the possibility to enter the courtyard. By making use of hard and soft landscape, I created a variety of places. Trees create shadows and a sense of organism while a piece of art, like Alexander Calder’s Flamingo, humanizes the space. In this way, Chinese get there own communal living room within a high dense area like The Wall.

MY FASCINATION, INSPIRATION AND IMAGINATION

bart van lakwijk 35


chicago

As a young boy I always answered the question of ‘what will you become?’ with ‘an architect’. No farmer, policeman or fire fighter; architect! I was fascinated by the way people behave and by public life, but also the built environment. As a young boy already my parents showed me a lot of the world and I got more and more fascinated by how the world looks like by people’s influence. The world looks so different on different places. What made this happen, and How can I contribute to this in a positive manner were questions that made me to decide to study architecture. And when I discovered I had the privilege to go to the university, I added an extra dream to my bucket list: studying abroad. In 2009 I went to Chicago for an exchange program and a dream came true. Still grateful I look back to this period. I lived on my own since the age of 17th, but living in a different culture far away from my own, secure, environment was a new, but great experience. That time still makes me believe that I don’t have to be afraid for new challenges and that inspires me a lot. I am not afraid to start new things, to take steps in a new direction and above all, I am not afraid to fail. I prefer to fail in the end than regret the fact that I have never tried a given opportunity, as long as I have done things well-considered. Next to that, also the city of Chicago is an inspiration for me. Not only the people but also areas within the city became an inspiration for my architectural thoughts. The area around the U.S. Post Office with Alexander Calder’s statue ‘Flamenco’ for example shows a one-storey high building block in the middle of high-rise-downtown-Chicago. Walking around in Chicago, enjoying the beauty of high-rise architecture, makes one feel very tiny and looking for open-air locations where one can catch a glimpse of the sun. It is this area where people come together and where I felt comfortable in a high dense city as Chicago, while knowing nobody but just enjoying public life.

Architecture is more than just solving a design task. Designing a building or setting up an urban plan means thinking about its users, thinking about its direct context but also thinking about the community, environment and the future. Sustainability is more than just adding techniques to buildings, cars or factories. Being innovative and by thinking in terms of solutions, architecture can definitely play an important role in setting up a sustainable society. Looking at the community of now and the future, I think it is important to understand different cultures, different ways of living and different ways of solving problems that look the same in the first place. It is with this knowledge and experience that new architecture can contribute to the community and environment in a positive way, without losing comfort and user friendliness. In this way a link between people, building and context will be created for a long term. To understand architecture more and to be able to create a unique design that meets the requirements in the best way possible, I also get my inspiration from travelling. By travelling around the world, looking at different cultures and environments, but also by meeting new people, I add new experiences to my knowledge that I got from the study-books. Travelling to China, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia but also the United States of America as well as East- and West-Europe result in important knowledge that I take with me to think further than just architecture and its basic solutions of creating shelter and safety. Such experiences push me to think about improving existing situations, like for example the buslines in Jakarta. It creates openings for improvement all around the world. Nothing is better than making somebody’s life more comfortable with knowledge they do not have.

being unique

design? Even the best plan is worth nothing if the story is not properly communicated. Besides that, presenting ideas to a developer is fundamentally different from presenting to an individual client, government or jury. This final step might be, or actually is the most important step during a design process: proudly and clearly presenting what the design proposal is about and try to convince the audience to Storytelling and presenting ideas are major tasks for architects. It is choose this proposal in the end. It describes perfectly my ambitious this part of the design process that fascinates me almost the most character and my mentality to win every competition I am in. and in which I try to stand out among others. Being innovative on any discipline possible, without losing quality of the final product is a Next to the task of designing solutions for urban and architectural great way to be unique. In depth research and a clear concept result problems, with which I can contribute to a sustainable society, it is in an idea that should meet at least the client’s requirements. As an this final step during the process that makes architecture a wonderful architect you know what the best steps are to come to the final profession: it gives me a great opportunity to be unique and show my solution, but how to convince others that it is truly the best passion for what I like to do. In a world full of people one can easily fall in the mass. To stand out and to keep one’s head above the water one have to distinguish themselves. Being unique is not that easy but it can be very fruitful and important some time. By being different from others new doors can be opened, new successes can be celebrated.

goalkeeping

A design process as I experienced is not a linear process. Sometimes it happens the process looks to come to a standstill and one solution found earlier turns out to be slightly out of line with the concept in a later stage. Before getting the feeling of failing, being afraid that the design really stagnates, one of my gadgets, mostly Apple (it is their philosophy about why they do things not what they produce that inspires me), might help me out. Some feel-good-music as I call it can help me out and give me the feeling that nothing is unreachable, even not a next step in the design. One of my notebooks can also help me out with summaries of articles or meetings and sketches that I have read and made before. I will read and draw until I find something that can help me further, even when I need to make one step backwards to improve later on. Everything can be achieved, even when it seems far away. Feeling unbeatable, that is the way I love to be.

Playing soccer means being part of a team: set and reach goals together with others and show full commitment without letting your teammates down. All players have their own individual qualities and together they make a strong team. As a striker one can be important by finishing the teamwork: scoring goals. I once decided to stand on the other side of the pitch and became a goalkeeper. Describing my role as a goalkeeper means describing one of my fascinations: being important on the moments that others need me. That is my favourite role. On the other hand actually, as a goalkeeper I also once decided to take a risky role within a team, every mistake I make is mostly fatal and with that I take my own responsibilities, which I know. It shows my dedication to a team and I am not afraid to make mistakes, since I know that not every ball can be caught.
