City Design & Transformation


PHYLOSOPHY

“City design is a social art and a natural science that has a mandate to sense, to nurture, to create and to adapt our living environment to ever changing society, economy and climate.”

City Design is a social art. It takes generations to build a city and an entire city to make a place. This means City Design is a process that requires understanding and collaboration to reflect and celebrate human values. City Design is a natural science. For the sake of our society’s prosperity and resilience, it is required us to understand the mother Earth. But for the benefit of our spiritual fulfillment, it is required that our understanding and appreciation of the nature goes beyond the external vantage point of ecology, but see this amazing world from within and act as a humble participant. City Design, therefore, has a mandate to sense, to nurture, to create and to adapt our living environment to ever changing society, economy and climate. Along this process, myself, a planner and urban designer, is searching for the authentic meaning of place, design ideas and our profession that reflect the tradition we inherit from the past and the challenges we face in the future.

FEATURE PROJECTS


REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT & SPECIAL ECONOMIC ZONE

Dubai Silicon Oasis Enhancement Plan Scale: Special Econonomic Zone Location: Dubai, United Arab Emirates Client: Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority Role: Lead Planner Year: 2016 Dubai Silicon Oasis (700ha, UAE) is a master plan revision project that aims to enhance the previous DSO master plan. With the aim to reposition DSO to become a conducive ecosystem to attract hi-tech businesses, the Master Plan Enhancement has channeled strategic investment in the creation of distinct districts which will foster this hi-tech community. It will create ecosystems as a “Place to Work”, “Place to Live”, “Place to Learn” and a “Place to play”. DSO will incorporate incubators for start-ups and hi-tech firms, as well as affordable quality living, academic education, signature venues for businesses and everyday recreational facilities for residents. INNOVATION The Enhanced Master Plan focuses on directing investment towards integrated district developments which fosters an ecosystem for hi-tech business growth and interaction. The Oasis, Innovation Crescent and One Silicon Place Districts work to complement each other, providing vital elements (education, creative offices and quality open spaces) for sustaining a hi-tech innovation hub. The plan creates a resilient development with creative land-use planning strategies that display flexibility and resiliency to market changes. Planning tools such as “white-site” act as open space in the present, but offer developers the flexibility to convert land use to respond to market demand in the future.

URBAN REGENERATION

Han River Corridor Master Plan Scale: 70 km river corridor Location: Danang, Vietnam Client: Danang Municipal Government Role: Project Manager/Lead Planner Year: 2016 From a fishing village, Danang has become one of Vietnam’s foremost cities. However, this fast-growing city is not without challenges, such as a lack of local identity, sole economic reliance on tourism, and increasing flooding risk caused by climate change. The Master Plan for Han River Corridor reinvents the life of the river to befit a first-tier city with an experience that will harvest local potential, strengthen Danang’s identity, restore ecological capacities, and capture the growth of the future. INNOVATION To understand Danang’s identity and innovative capabilities, the plan adopts a business assessment tool. This analyses Danang’s condition and determines the relationship between her economic and environmental capacities, and community beliefs. A multidisciplinary collaboration was formed to understand the city, proposing solutions on three different scales—city structure and land use to support growth and achieve resiliency, designated places for business interventions, and landscape concepts for inspiration. Moreover, places are designed to carry multiple functions from addressing local challenges to showcasing local identity and innovations. This allows the riverfront transformation’s impact to expand into surrounding areas and create meaningful destinations.

Tropicana Danga Cove Master Plan

View of Riverfront Plaza

Scale: 80 hectares Location: Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia Client: Tropicana Danga Cove Role: Project Manager/Lead Master Planner Year: 2014 The Master Plan of Tropicana Danga Cove creates a sequence of places that reflect the developer’s vision of a urban destination by the water and a garden community. Four distinctive places: Riverfront, Business, Market and Garden District, offer a variety of unique living, working, shopping and playing environments. This diversity of uses offers to the future residents a wide range of housing and lifestyle choices. The four districts are linked together by an East-West avenue and its parallel green corridor.

View of Convention Center

A fine grain of building blocks, public spaces, community facilities and commercial structures are allocated through the development to promote a strong sense of community, social interactions, active lifestyle as well as phasing flexibility and incremental development. Another focus of the Master Plan is land-use integration to maximize land value and mitigate market risks. Land-integration is applied to complementing uses with uncertain market demand such as office and shopping mall. Land-use integration is also applied to infrastructure components: detention ponds being part of parks and open spaces, pedestrian spaces along major roadways being part of the green corridor network to enlarge and enrich greenery offerings.

Kallang Riverside Master Plan Scale: 23 hectares Location: Singapore Client: Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore Role: Designer Year: 2012 In the Kallang River project, context- and watersensititve urban design and landscape framework were combined to accomplishes high-density urban delopement while maintaining Singapore’s last historic coastal park and its stormwater retention capacity. In this complex design challenge, programming comes rst. I built a mathematic model that demonstrate all planning parameters: small developable land, a maximum overall site coverage of 25%, a provision of 3800 housing units and 3000 hotel rooms plus 1.1 space/unit parking requirement. In this ambitious development assignment, dierent design disciplines should be interwoven at dierent scales. The role of a planner like me thus was expended to urban design and building design dimension to test the compatibility, the integration and the functionality of each design attribute to the entire site.

MAPPING & GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM

Urban form - hydrology interaction in Saigon River Basin Scale: 2505 sqkm Location: Saigon River Basin, South of Vietnam Client: N/A Role: Lead investigator Year: 2013 Urban form evolution causes hydrologic effects. Therefore, an understanding of this critical relationship can provide planning and design solution to make communities more sensitive and resilient to flooding. The search for a hydrologic-optimal urban form is critical for Ho Chi Minh City region given the low infiltration rate of soil and rapid urbanization so that minimizing impervious surface is a less relevant solution. Response to this research necessary and base on landscape ecology approach, this study provides an empirical study of urban form evolution in term of size [urbanized area], shape [compactness and fractal] and dispersion [aggregation] within 2505 sqkm of Saigon River Basin during a 20-year period of rapid urbanization. During this period, impervious surface increased by 4 and 8 times in the whole basin and in the flood-prone areas respectively while the population increased by 2 folds only. Urban development in the Basin also became less compact, more fractal but more aggregated. Using 5 landscape metrics and a hydrologic index demonstrating run-off coefficient, the author presents potential relationship between those form variables and the hydrologic performance of the Basin. The result of this paper highlights that a more compact and concentrated urban form for Saigon River Basin may result in lower flood risk for Ho Chi Minh city.
