The old infrastructure, with an extension of 65 ha, will become a new prime real estate development, on the waterfront and a few minutes away from Haikou city center. It will accommodate 1.7 million m2 of new residential areas, offices, retail, entertainment and culture buildings, as well as a large marina and waterfront amenities, green areas and promenades.

Canal Ecology: Regional Network to Local Hubs

CANAL

Professional project WPA 2.0 International Competition

HIG

Location New York State, USA

Date Summer 2009

The Erie Canal, opened in 1825, was built by Governor Clinton with the aim of connecting the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes. This inland trade connection boosted the national economy, triggered westward expansion, and solidified New York as a global city of trade and commerce. Over time the canal was outmoded, first by the railroad and then by the highway. After years of neglect and deterioration, high oil prices, the growing wind turbine industry, and a potential rehabilitation of Detroit’s auto industry prime the Erie Canal’s resurgence as a regional shipping corridor. Yet if the canal operates simply as regional transport, the forces of advancing technology and the volatility of the market will surely ebb this infrastructure back into obsolescence. We pose that it is vital to understand the canal as a man-made ecology, an infrastructure capable of negotiating flows of people, energy, water and industry. Through a series of strategic urban interventions, we design the intersections of these multiple flows to utilize the canal’s potential. We reconfigure what was once a predominately linear regional network into a series of local nodes, able to engage with local urban needs, to solidify the canal within the ecological framework of the New York region.

We propose six types of interventions to be placed on the Erie Canal. Depending on the local characteristics of each site (topography, location, natural environment, available land, etc.) the different programs will be implemented: Water Purification, Hydropower Electricity, Eco/Heritage Tourism, Agriculture, Hydrogen Production and Pisciculture. This new systems, not conventionally related with canals, upgrade the existing infrastructure of locks, channels and pools into another improved and more complex infrastructures. Citizens gain new economic and industrial facilities, on top of a tighter social fabric and ameliorated public spaces and urban landscapes.

Hydropower: Distribution of turbines

H2 Production: Erie Canal has the potential to refuel 33% of taxis of NYC

Section of the locks and new infrastructures

Agriculture: Water harvesting


Green Harlem Development Professional project Volido Corp. & FPWI

Location Harlem, NYC, USA

Date Summer 2009

Currently almost abandoned to parking lots, empty warehouses and a bus depot, West 128th Street has the potential to become a new node within Harlem. Strategically situated among three university campuses, three parks and next to vibrant West 125th Street, this location will accommodate social facilities, artists and student housing, restaurants and retail, public space, several community facilities and a bike path. All this with the latest sustainable technologies available: green roofs, water harvesting, solar panels, heat reconversion, etc.

Collaborated with another architect in drafting proposal, design and green features research. Responsible for plans and view (CAD & Adobe).


Healing Mithi River Academic Work Columbia MSAUD UD Studio III (Plunz)

Location Mumbai, India

Date Spring 2009

India, like in many other rapidly developing countries, is going through growing pains. One of the most prominent issues is the water control and pollution. In Mumbai, biggest city in India and the economical capital of the country, the problem is even worse, due to industrialization, migration and urbanization. The tipping point for this to change took place on 26 July 2005, when a 24hour rainfall of 994 mm lashed the metropolis. Mumbai â&#x20AC;&#x153;diedâ&#x20AC;? for two days. Severe flooding and water pollution of the Mithi River is one of the most serious problems for present Mumbai, and particularly for Dharavi, which is built on low-lying marshlands. The main cause of this massive problem is that Mithi River has lost 54% of its original flow due to slum encroachments, new bridges, construction of the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport and the Bandra Kurla Complex.

Collaborated (team of 3 students) in concept and design development. Responsible for aerial view and diagrams (Photoshop & Illustrator).


We propose to heal the river by reversing this haphazard, offensive and capitalistic encroachment into a green infrastructural encroachment based on water elevations. This will be executed at two scales. One at a regional scale that addresses program and land-use that imagines Mithi River as nalla of Mumbai, the second at the neighborhood scale where the green infrastructure infiltrates Dharavi through the existing nalla right-of-way.

Collaborated (team of 3 students) in concept and design development. Responsible for masterplans and views (Photoshop & Illustrator).


This intervention promotes sanitary environments, a social network of bike streets and public spaces for recreation and commercial activities. These two scales of interventions envision a new way of living with nature that remediate the current predicament of Mithi River, and generate a valuable new green eco-economy and community that reinforces current Dhraraviâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dynamic economy and social fabric.

Collaborated (team of 3 students) in concept and design development. Collaborated in diagrams and 3D model (Sketchup & Illustrator).


Bronx River Crossing Project Academic Work Columbia, Van Alen Institute, SLO Architecture

Location Bronx, NYC

Date Spring 2009

BRONX RIVER CROSSING (BRX) proposes a reconsideration of the Bronx River as spine in the weaving of social and spatial networks across the Bronx. Cultivating long-term working cooperation among students and professionals in architecture, urban design, planning and ecology together with local high school youths, their teachers, and local activists, the efforts of BRX culminate in a week-long on-site workshop that will bring all participants together to envision and install designed interventions along the waterway.

Collaborator with SLO Architecture and leader of one of the student teams to design and build the model with recycled materials.
