OULU BIOVILLAGE E X P L O R I N G B LU E B I O E C O N O M Y O P P O R T U N I T I E S I N O U LU , F I N L A N D

By the year 2030, the world will need 50% more food, 45% more energy and 30% more water. This growth in demand will increase pressure on our natural resources. Ingenuitive and adaptive thinking will therefore be required in the ways we build our cities. Finland, with its abundance of natural resources: its forest, its lakes and its aquatic resources, as well as its expertise in sustainable resource use and development, has strategically placed itself as a pioneer in transitioning its economy from one reliant on fossil fuels into one which harnesses the full potential of renewable natural resources and unlocks the full potential waste: creating food, energy, products, services, and jobs in line with sustainable development. As part of the graduation thesis project for the Sustainable Urban Design master program at Lund University, the project explores this opportunity further in Oulu, Finland; where one of mainland Finland’s largest fish farms is being planned north of the city in Haukipudas. The project examines the potential of creating a fully-functional blue bioeconomy ecosystem, unlocking the full potential of sidestreams and waste, and exploring the synergies between fish, food, and energy production into a self-sustaining bio-district. The project seeks to integrate production activities: fish, vegetable produce, services, new industrial products; with everyday life, to enhance the relationship of citizens with nature and linking consumption with production.

DUJIANGYAN AGRI DISTRICT COEXISTENCE OF THE URBAN + RURAL

How is China feeding its population of 1.4 billion? Four decades of rapid economic growth has fueled a dramatic reduction in China’s undernourished population. However, with a rising middle class, changing dietary needs, loss of agriculture lands, water scarcity/pollution, and increasing reliance on food imports, China’s economic boom has generated a new set of demographic demands and environmental strains that have specifically affected its agricultural capacity. As part of the Sustainable Urban Dynamics studio at Lund University’s School of Architecture, the urban proposal tests a new model of urban development where traditional relationships of city, open-space and farmland are reconfigured. Dujiangyan is a city with an existing strong identity rooted in agriculture, the thousand year old irrigation system and international tourism. Knowing Dujiangyan’s identity, the city has the capactiy to become a centre for agricultural research that aims to address the scientific advancement of agricultural processes. The agriculture serves as the glue which holds the development together, weaving in creative pursuits from biomedical R&D, a culture quarter, and a new medicine/wellness district. This strategy creates a coexistence of rural and urban that ultimately facilitates a higher quality of life through self-sustenance while generating new economic opportunities.

FUNDS THE RESEARCH

The urban plan seeks to create a catalyst for the area which is currently characterized by large-scale urban voids, a lack of urban identity and spatial oritentation. From the analysis of the site, the city, and in China as a whole, Dujiangyan has the capacity to become an agricultural research centre of the west. The research centre would become the catalyst for the area working in collaboration with the existing Sichuan Agricultural University just north of the site. Opened for ecotoursim, capital could be generated to fund the research, thus promoting a bottom-up funding cycle.

In the large scale, a productive landscape is created defining the river edge, called the Field, containing large-scale community farms, testing/demonstration crops and research facilities for hydroponics and vertical farming. A recreational trail is open to the public to encourage a new sector of ecotourism. In the small scale is the Garden, which encompasses privately-run urban agriculture and smaller-scale community gardens, greenhouses and community kitchens in courtyard settings. The agriculture weaves together different districts and connects the train station through a commercial area, main research hub, biomedical research area, culture quarter and a new medicine/wellness hub.

BARKÅKRA LANDSCAPE IN TRANSITION

Barkåkra’s site within the NW Öresund region is strategically placed in a landscape with immense diversity: from the historic fishermen’s village of Skepparkroken, to the vast open agricultural planes and horizontal airport landscape to the Hallandsås—the ridge. Barkåkra’s location north of Ängelholm’s city centre will transition in time with its access to a newly built commuter train station and thus the small-town character of the immediate area and the access to the landscape may be compromised. As part of the Sustainable Urban Landscape studio at Lund University’s School of Architecture, the proposal aims to provide methods for sensitive growth alongside the preservation of existing historical qualities and access to the open landscape.

A LANDSCAPE IN TRANSITION The map visualizes the unique transition in the landscape, from the sea, to the airport, to the open planes, to the ridge. This transition in the landscape is unique to the Ängelholm region. The site is located north of the city centre and the topographical changes offers incredible views to both the sea and to the ridge. Ängelholm’s relationship to the landscape is also strongly tied to production with soils that have been culltivated for centuries.

Time visibility is accentuated in the landscape with proposed development framing the existing stone walls. New development would interact with the stone walls. On one side: a public park with mixed use commercial frontage; on the other: a private dwelling and garden. Grassland vegetation from the typical village landscape will be reintroduced around both the stone walls and the historical pond to re-establish significant flora and fauna within the site.

EMELINE LEX - PORTFOLIO | 37


The stone wall parkettes are designed as multi-functional public spaces with commercial, residential, recreational and leisure activities. By reintroducing grassland vegetation in these linear parks, grazing animals may be reintroduced into the space to elicit a village-like atmosphere and serve as a memory to the previous landscape functions.

YSTAD’S BEACH LINK BRIDGING THE GAP

As part of the Sustainable Urban Recycling design studio, the aim of the project was to develop strategic visions for the urban transformation of the underutilized harbour area in the city of Ystad, Sweden. For years, this public amenity has been fragmented by the industrial harbour at the heart of the city. The aim of the design project was to investigate and develop the harbour into an integrated part of the city from ecological, humanist and socio-economic perspectives.

The main strategies proposed was to preserve exisiting built heritage with adaptive re-use, improve connectivity between the city core and the harbour area by maintaining visual connections to the silo structures and to eliminate any gaps in pedestrian connections while increasing permeability. We also sought to create a variety of public spaces connecting the city public areas with the harbour, improving public access to the water and incorporating on-water structures to encourage citizens to interact with the sea.

THE BEACH LINK Create a continuous coastline.

Join a network of recreational, educational, and cultural public spaces for a diverse range of users.

MASTER PLAN Buildings follow the landscape feature and stormwater is managed by local streets with bioswales which connect to the beach link.

Re-naturalizing the existing coastline mitigates flooding events from sea level rise while providing microclimate benefits.

The master plan illustrates the proposed beach link and new harbour village, which links the existing West Beaches to the new harbour beach, marina village, handy-craft square, theatre park, urban beach/waterfront park, along a new water promenade and connecting to a proposed urban wetland, industry park and eventually connecting to a new cycle track on the E65 connecting the harbour to Ystads Sandskog in the east, a 115-hectare nature reserve with kilometre stretches of white sandy beaches. The proposal offers a sequence of experiences, from urban to natural spaces and creates a continuous waterfront connection from the west to east which has been fragmented for centuries.

BRIDGING OLD + NEW BUILDING TYPOLOGIES

To maintain the character of Ystad medieval city as well as the existing industrial harbour, the new harbour building typology seeks to combine the human scale and variation of the medieval core with the industrial character and higher height allowances of the industrial harbour. Thus the new block will allow for diversity of building types within the block with buildings typically at the corners of the blocks having a higher “peak” height.

Another key component of the beach link is to serve as a multi-functional space that can accomodate potential sealevel rise. New development would be risen approximately 1.0m above the current harbour level, and key public spaces such as the urban beach, water promenade and urban wetland would become floodable zones when water levels are higher. The goal is to combine both a hard edge at the industrial silo-pier with an increasingly naturalized/soft edge towards the urban wetland and park.

WATERFRONT TYPOLOGIES Two major waterfront typologies were incorporated including the urban beach which incorporates mixed-use commercial frontage onto an on-water built structure at the heart of the beach link. The urban wetland in the east of the site incorporates a lower residential scale with private floodable docks which backs towards the beach link cycle track and public boardwalk. These areas offer multifunctional space that can also accomodate flooding from sea level rise.
