Agriculture as Urbanism

[Reviving Rural Life through Wastewater Cultivation] The agriculture sector in Jordan is responsible for over 70% of the country’s total freshwater consumption while contributing only 3% to the national economy. Illegal wells extract freshwater for agriculture, in Highlands and Jordan valley alike, resulting in over-extraction of he water Basins. Through Phytoremediation technique, we filter the underutilized domestic waste water to use in new agriculture/aquaculture practices. The gravity driven wastewater collection system provides opportunities for a new terrain responsive urbanism in rural unsewered areas. The framework create new jobs for unemployed Syrian Migrants, agriculture workers in Jordan valley & Amman city residents. The Agro-Urban economy over time catalyzes rural expansion while curbing city growth. We envision the govt. investing in development of this framework instead of investing in more consumptive waste water treatment plants. These interventions will stop freshwater extraction for agriculture in Highland, thus allowing Amman to use water from Amman-Zarqa basin rather than from the non-renewable Disi basin (shared by Jordan and Saudi Arabia). By 2050, we envision the development along wadis to be new economic model for sustainable urban growth.

[Not only a class, but a fun class] The urban design premise of PoughkeepsieGo! is based on fun as a pedagogical concept. By speaking the language of children –through gaming—to engage and educate about what’s on their plate, we hope to start a food cultural revolution against current junk food habits. The proposal appropriates the vernacular of play in order to instill a critical consciousness of all food-related processes and products. In order to do this, PoughkeepsieGo! is implementing a gamescape at three scales: 1) within schools --- physical proposal to transform schools into a food learning hub 2) within Poughkeepsie city --- urban exploration, engagement and advocacy with foodscape 3) within the region --- satellite campus partnership to facilitate systematic efficiency

As children move through the K-12 public school system, they study the entire food cycle and participate in the processes within. PoughkeepsieGo! represents a start – a beta version – as an open network, welcoming future expansion to community collaborators for a dynamic gaming curriculum.

the Dandelion Collection

[Not only a class, but a fun class] Port Morris is historically an industrial neighborhood that, in addition to manufacturing and distribution, houses many power, recycling, sanitation and water treatment facilities that, together with the huge amount of cars and trucks using the highway, heavily pollute the neighborhood. Due to the high concentration of these facilities in the south Bronx, many of the residents suffer from costly and preventable health issues. In addition, the zoning and physicality of the industrial buildings create a barrier between the residents and the waterfront. Our proposal is the re-development of these two points, as well as the paths to them. Aside from providing safe, easy, and quick connection to the waterfront, we propose to design paths that provide amenities and services lacking in the neighborhood. The paths will be defined by our air purification system that helps to articulate new green spaces, community spaces, educational and assistance services, and other miscellaneous functions like food and drink vendors that help support waterfront activities.

The Renaissance

[Flexibility in Framework] The ambition of this Proposal has to exceed its site boundary, and set a timeframe longer than ordinary urban plans which focus merely on space and volume. The proposal is a milestone of a longer term plan – the Renaissance of Majiayan . It intentionally avoids monotone architectural gestures and adopts a specific master planning strategy that is flexible and adaptable to provide an approach which will grow in time, facing the possibilities in the future.

The Corridor [Break Through the Volume] Under the influence of 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the possession of an arena had become a popular notion for new towns in China. However, along with the emergence of post-Olympic age, a lot of arenas had gone underused. This design is proposed not only to meet the sports events in the town but also provide work-out spaces indoor and outdoor, as well as commercial spaces which could partially share the expenditure of running the arena. Breaking the gigantic volume by a mixed-use corridor, a shortcut which could link two corners of the site is provided.

Breeze Tower [Breathing Urban Interface] High-rise buildings today have drown into a stereotype of program and a zeal for height competition. Jiefangbei is the CBD of Chongqing city, the sky of which is already occupied by a forest of skyscrapers. We asked ourselves: is one more ordinary skyscraper — which is just like sandwiches of programs with a facade — really needed? These existed skyscrapers are unrelated autonomies tearing Jiefangbei apart. Each of them has familiar and repeating programs which make this area hollow at night. In history, Jiefangbei was once the guestroom of the city, a place belongs to citizens, we want to give it back to the people from capitalism. Thus, public programs aimed at improving citizen life, such as theaters, public viewing spot and green space, are added to this proposal, making it democratic, different from those stereotyped skyscrapers serving the so-called elite class. The vagueness between indoor and outdoor space is another characteristic of old Chongqing city. However, today we use solid boxes to confine us inside. We want to bring this tradition back, blurring the boundary between architecture and environment, and offering a green space for all citizens in Jiefangbei, where currently green is hard find. The building itself becomes a certain kind of landscape while keeping its urban attributes.

Hutong Lighthouse [Light up the Corner] Architecture could be emotional. Beijing Courtyard is a classic architectural typology in the city which is completely enclosed by rectangular rooms around the four edges, leaving the centre to open land. With the transformation of ownership through generations, the Courtyard has changed from family-owned property to mixed residential with a sharing space. Nontheless, the continous interface of walls without any crack through which we can peep the lively life inside makes the alley endless dullness under the street light. Walking throuh uncertainty, I need light. Therefore, personally I proposed a mixed-use house with a vertical courtyard around the corner of my way home. Envisioning the scenario, the smell of the bread from the bakery, the music performed by the musician and the light emitting from the couryard make it the architecture of my everyday life.
