motivation

I am a qualified Urbanist and Urban Planner graduated at the Universidad Simon Bolivar

in Venezuela, and I recently got a Master degree of Urbanism and Strategic Planning (cum laude) at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium. My intention is to extend my experience in an International context on Urban Design and Strategic Planning. In that regard, I am keen to work for a multidisciplinary firm with projects at different scales, where I can learn and contribute as well.

During my professional experience, mainly based in South America, I had the opportunity

to participate in a variety of projects at different stages of architecture, planning and design, such as technical, economical and financial feasibility studies; quantity surveying; real estate valuation; urban planning and design at different scales; research on transportation and mobility; management, promotion, and implementation of plans.

In addition, during my master studies I was privileged to be exposed and confronted to

a variety of urban realities in Europe, Africa and Asia. This provided a greater perspective and a more integral comprehension of different urban fields. I also hold a degree of Second Dan in the Martial Art Aikido, which has given me a lot of discipline and tools for social and negotiation skills.

I have always been very disciplined and committed to quality in every aspect of my

life. I am very proactive, efficient, organised and with excellent communication skills. My former employers describe me as a very dynamic person, versatile, with a high level of responsibility and determination. I’m flexible, quick to pick up new skills and eager to learn from others.

I hope there is a suitable opening at your firm at the moment, I would be delighted to

discuss any possible vacancy with you at your convenience. Thank you for taking the time to read my portfolio,

Yours sincerely,

Francesca Vergani

final individual thesis project

kumarket. distending trading ecologies on contested space

KUMARKET expresses the idea of Kumasi as a Market, where a better configuration of activities and infrastructure start to open spaces for the distending trading ecologies operating at KCM.

traders that have a symbiotic relation with the main market, as well as many traders located in different roads near the central area.

Considering the reactivation of the railtracks as a probable scenario, the first proposal is to split the main station into two multimodal stations towards the south and northeast edges of the inner ring road. This relocation would be more efficient in the sense that the main industries are located in those sides of the city.

The central area conceived as a market can start to accommodate other actors that don`t have space to access the “formal� city. An enormous entrepreneurial potential can be developed in the city center. The area selected for this exercise is the Kumasi Station Railtracks.

The need to restructure and to generate a co-ordinated multi modal system of stations, following a hierarchy of access and spaces would be translated into the incorporation of a tram line in the abandoned railtracks. This mean of transport requires less space, therefore a big area can be available for development.

After analyze the different actors contesting the space of the railtracks, made imperative the application of some measurements in order to keep this area working for the city, and not generating more problems such as congestion, pollution and lack of access to quality of life.

On the other hand, the trading identity and dynamic of the city make evidence the need for more space that should be an answer for the different forms of appropriation in the city. KCM has reached its capacity and now a vast area is invaded by informal

One of the main aspects that should be incorporated in any proposal for this site is to respect the pedestrian dynamic, where the people, and not the cars, dominate the space, but in a efficient and profitable way.

urbanism studio

kortrijk. requalifying infrastructures The city of Kortrijk is undergoing a major metamorphosis, due to the increasing rationalization of health care and education. The four historic hospitals in the city center are closing their doors while being replaced by one brand new facility along the highway. The schools system is undergoing a similar development. These ongoing transformations have to be added to the consequences of the desindustrialization that devastated the city in different shocks and waves since the petrol crisis of the 1970s.

Commercially, the center is suffering from competition of big retail facilities in the periphery and it is without saying that convents and churches already lost most of their significance a long time ago. Short, the historic core of Kortrijk is losing a lot of exactly the central functions which in the past provided it its centrality. Last but not least, a lot of infrastructure realized the last 50 years to accommodate the car, proves to be oversized, misconceived and impossible to maintain as such. The Urbanism Studio proposes to rethinh the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infrastructure to reframe the city and to generate ample place for new development concepts for the (historic) city with its multitude of vacancies. The studio forms part of the ongoing design research investigations of OSA - Research Group Urbanism and Architecture- in the region of Kortrijk.

landscape urbanism design studio

re-considering the village in the expanding city. taihu, china

The Taihu and Yizhuang Districts are 30 kilometers away from Beijing and southeast of the city´`s 6th ring road. The low-lying area is between two large/ new densified towns, Tongzhou (an important city in China`s history, being at terminus of the Grand Canal) and Yizhuang, which serve as regional service centers. The areas presently has a population of 83.000, clustered in 46 villages (including Ciqu New Town) and is expected to triple its population in the coming 10 years. The dispersed patchwork of residential, industrial and agricultural land includes wetlands and ponds that support fish farming and lotus cultivation. Within the Beijing master-planning ideal, the territory was envisioned as one of the socalled “green wedges” between the first and second green rings of the city, however, unstoppable urban growth has thwarted such plans and the site will inevitably become an extension of Beijing itself -clearly reinforced by the introduc-

tion of the high speed train that bisects the area (connecting Beijing-Tianjin). Built between 2005-8, travel time from the site to Beijing`s Forbidden City from the site`s Yizhuang Station will be 20 minutes. The study area to be investigated in Taihu and Yizhuang Districts occupies an area of roughly 180km2 and is on relatively flat area (7.8-8.3 meters above sea level). Amongst the 46 villages that occupied the study area, 14 were bull-dozen in 2010 to make way for a planned commercial and office development south of the Yizhuang Station area; 6000 inhabitants were relocated to residential slabs in neighbouring Ciqu New Town. Of the remaining settlements in the study area, Taihu Town is the largest (with 4000 inhabitants). There are also a number of villages that have developed specialized crafts in history and in the contemporary economy. There is also Beijing International Book City - a large warehouse-like building between Taihu and Hujiafa Village that has a regional draw.

guidance Prof. Kelly Shannon Viviana d’Auria

method

The studio was divided in three groups (each of 8 participants), with each group functioning as an office. Each office developed 4 strategic projects to strengthen (and revise) the overall vision. The studio focused on three phases of a design and policy process: urban analysis, urban visions for the region and development of strategic urban projects.

serve the city / serve the village office project

The title “Serve the City, Serve the Village” originates in the 1944s,

City Area, 1975

when Mao used the slogan “Serve the People” for his political campaign. As Taihu is located on the fringe of the rapidly growing metropolis of Beijing, the area will inevitably become part of the city fabric. Currently however, the identity of Taihu features a clear contrast between dense traditional villages and open fields defined by the highly depleted irrigation system. City Area, 1988

In order to mantain such characteristics, Taihu has to serve the city by becoming a valuable asset for its urban logics. Beijing produces a considerable amount of garbage, has very polluted water infrastructure flowing through it, is clouded by heavily polluted air - amongst the worst values in China - and has exploding population in desperate need for new housing.

Turning these problems into assets has led to the complete reversal of the NIMBY (Not in my backyard) approach to a WIMBY concept: Welcome In My Backyard. Welcome garbage, we shall mould you into fascinating landfill art. Welcome dirty water, we will let you flow and treat you until a purified sewage system will provide Taihu with a hydrologically sustainable condition once again. An embracing forest will clean the polluted air and at the same time provide protection to the area, reconverting the agricultural patterns into wind corridors and reinforcing a productive landscape. New residential housing will be provided in accordance with the scenario of seeing Taihu´s population double by 2020, without however destroying the existing clustered change between dense urban fabric and open fields

fabric and its connection with the intermidiate landscape. 29


A vision for the future of Taihu is developed which, while serving the city with new spatial qualities, new work opportunities, introduces recreational uses and re-qualifies the tradituonal village housing by injecting more diversity and services. Ultimately, it also serves the village and the people of Taihu.

strategic spatial planning studio

oostende...weaving the net

This report is showing the results of a team of 16 people working together - 14 students and 2 professors. We never met before, we all have different backgrounds, origins, languages, cultural ways, vocabularies and meanings to explain and understand conceptual and abstract ideas. The main challenge was to work together as one big team, all on the same case study with the same goals and intentions. The case study we were dealing with was Oostende, a Flemish City on the Belgian Seaside. Most of us had never heard about this city, most of us had never even been in Belgium before. We can already say that we have learned as much about “What is strategic spatial planning” than about “How to work as a one big team”. And we will see that these two processes can be compared on many levels – starting with the variety of actors, with sometime contradictory interests, implied in the process. So, how have we proceed, how did we produce this report and how to read it?

In the previous page, a timeline of the semester is showing our work out. Step by step, day-by-day, we have learned how to organise the tasks in a coherent way, listening to everybody’s opinions, ideas and questions. We visited the city, met stakeholders and some other actors who are also interested in the potential development of the city. We maintained the communication with them to be helped and informed. We had many turntables, endless discussions between 3, 4, 14 or 16 people! We had some moments of questioning, some times of disillusion but mainly great moments of sharing, learning, complicity, of strong motivations and engagements! Without any doubt, Strategic Spatial Planning deals with passion! We organised and re-organised the teams and their topics of research. Thus a “synthesis group”, which later became the “common group”, had been quickly recognised as necessary to reach this consistency and assume the information sharing between each team and member.The report reflects the result of a strong coordination and of a rich engagement of each member.

In order to appreciate the fragmentation, the city was viewed from the various aspects of functionalities such as the land use i.e. urban centre, residential, beach, commercial, green area, camping and industrials; transport infrastructure, landscape and public spaces and buildings. The intersections of at least two of the different modes of transportation create very important points within the transport network.The landscape consisted of beach, green areas, natural dunes system and the blue areas. Public spaces with facilities included beach, pedestrian ways, square/parks, museum, school/university and casino, landmarks In a bid to identify the critical areas of possible strategic intervention, a logical approach was devised to arrive at the most likely locations for the projects. The various functionalities identified above were mapped. The different layers (maps) were subsequently overlapped and spots of convergence were located. These were referred to as nodes.

- Creation of mobility and accessibility conditions that endorse cohesive urban spaces, connecting the different places/spaces and making possible the easy access to people. - Promotion of the existing networks of flows (such as roads, pedestrian circulation, etc.) continuity, in order to allow easy access to the entire urban network, avoiding the creation of barriers. - Promotion of multifunctionality in the network of places/spaces, ranging from commerce, residential and services to facilities and entertainment / recreational activities. - Promotion of functional complementarity between several places/ spaces in the city, always keeping the principle of proximity in mind.

amphibus A link from the station to the east bank by way of amphibian bus (amphibus) is proposed. Being an attraction by itself, it avoids complicated instalations.

cultural centre / permeable structure Based on the project â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parque Exploraâ&#x20AC;? designed by Architect Alejandro Echeverri (Medellin, Colombia), a permeable Cultural Centre is proposed in the industrial structure near the lighthouse. The proposed use for this Centre is longlife education programs and iteractive cultural activities that enrich and entertained youngers and olders.

cultural centre / spots Complementing the project, some interactive activities related with the main function of the Cultural Centre can be spread trough kiosks and cultural / artistic installations, protecting the space but proposing uses that allow soft interaction with the natural heritage.

cultural centre / services building Considering the lighthouse as a joint, another structure with same architectural guidelines is proposed. The building might contain some commercial services related with the cultural use, e.g. Restaurants, souvenirs shops. The structure could be used for communal services compatible with the residential use of both banks.

timber decks Using as a reference Corrubedo Park in Spain, a set of elevated timber decks is proposed in the dunes. This eco-friendly intervention would protect environment permitting the natural movement of the sand and its vegetation. At the same time they could connect the remained Atlantic wall structures with the proposed Cultural centre and the Fort Napoleon.

amphitheater An open air amphitheater based on St. Kilda Promenade in Melbourne, Australia, is proposed next to Fort Napoleon This less invasive intervention could be used for relaxing and hosting certain outdoor activities. It should be equipped with a retractable roof covering to protect the people from sometimes hostile wind and dust. 39

final thesis project

strategic guidelines for urban renewal of the callao historical center The Callao Historical Center (CHC), in Lima, Peru, is a very important architectural and cultural legacy for the country. The Regional Government of Callao has had the initiative to develop large-scale projects within the Callao Region, e.g. Malecon del Milenio and Costa Verde Highway. These large developments have a common joint in the Historical Center of Callao, which represents one of the main heritage architectural gems in the country but unfortunately it was abandoned after an earthquake in 1940 and the intensive growing of Lima, offering a more attractive lifestyle. Currently the CHC is in a high state of deterioration, and is characterized by high levels of insecurity, abandoned structures and incompatible uses within it’s tourist vocation. Some efforts have been made to improve the physical conditions such as the recuperation of some squares and public spaces, while simultaneously launching a program to “adopt a balcony” which encourage private companies to sponsor the recuperation of some balconies that are part of the architectural heritage of the city. The thesis focuses on developing Strategic Guidelines which aim to synchronize these efforts and propose a program that

allows the City Center to become a ’booster’ for the residential and commercial area, preventing the structures to become part of the harbour by proposing new uses and structures to promote the touristic activity of the area. Diagnosis was developed after literature review from heritage archives and history of the city , field visits, surveys and mapping the different conditions of the structures, resulting in a series of thematic plans and SWOT analysis. This diagnosis resulted in the zoning of the study area and description of the current role. Subsequently the proposal for the sector was developed, which is based on a functional diagram that explains the role proposed and the Strategic Guidelines developed in detail by sector within the study area. It is important to propose solutions that consider both spatial and physical aspects of economic, social and environmental. In this sense, it is essential to have policies that address not only the ornament of the city, but the quality of life of its people , ensuring adequate living conditions through access to services, employment and growth opportunities.

approach to a model of structure and accesibility for hilltown developments

This study focuses on the issue of the ordering of residential developments, especially ‘favellas’ on steep slopes (hilltown developments). In the case of Caracas, the study explores the phenomenon of “informal hilltown developments” and its possible integration into the urban structure of the city, formally planned. While these informal hilltown developments are an urban reality experienced by most of the population of Caracas and an integral part of the image of the city, its systematic arrangement has not been sustained attention from planners and authorities. These large sections of the city, in the worst cases were excluded from urban plans and in the the best cases were the subject of policies of “improvement”, whose success has been limited, simplistic, and in some cases, questionable, due the imbalance between costs and benefits. As a result, the question is raised of which have been the reasons for the lack of viable proposals to achieve a substantial improvement in the quality of life of the inhabitants of the “hilltown developments”. This study starts from the assumption that the main factor was lack of solutions that have not been adapted to the topography of these neighbourhoods.

Recognizing the topography as the dominant element in determining the characteristics of the developments built on steep land, has had the suspicion that traditional planning instruments have not been able to recognize the problems inherent in these areas properly, leading to no solutions tailored to their specific characteristics. For this reason, special effort was made to explore non-traditional and ‘out of the box’ cases to diagnose and define the problem of urban informal settlements and formulate concepts for planning and structuring approaches. It has been the aim of the study to arrive at a preliminary proposal for a model that is generally applicable and has the potential to foster ongoing and sustainable way the ordering of these urban areas and substantially improve its accessibility and mobility and to contribute to improving the quality of life of its inhabitants.

urban development plan for UD-151

(campo rojo, dalla costa and berrios)

The Design Unit (UD) 151, Campo Rojo, Dalla Costa and Berrios, is located extreme northwest San Félix sector of the city, on the right bank of the Caroni River. It is composed by five units of urban design called La Laguna, Guaiparo, Sabana Piedra, Los Arenales and Las Piedritas. These sectors are considered informal since their occupation was not planned or asisted by any public institution, bringing some issues as lack of facilities, water supply issues, electricity shortages among others. On the other hand, this Plan is part of Master Plan for the System of Green Areas with recreational potential (SAVEPOR) which is a tool for planning , management and management of green areas that are considered as a major integrated and diversified park system and recreational areas (recreational and cultural spaces differentiated), related to the Caroni River and the surrounding urban context, accessible to the public in a controlled manner, and seeks to expand the recreational offer of Ciudad Guayana in the contemplative, scenic, educational aspects, research and articles, without interfering with the operation requirements of the Lower Caroni Hydroelectric System (main electrical supplier for the country). The configuration and location of geographic areas Savepor in the city center and on the Caroni River, allow Ciudad Guayana has a “blue-green heart” as opposed to traditional venezuelan cities, where the center is the point of maximum density in the urban development. This presents a unique opportunity to create an urban and environmental landmark, symbol of the region of great environmental value.

paraitepuy masterplan

identifying priorities of attention and land management in paraitepuy community. gran sabana municipality, bolivar state Paraitepuy de Roraima is a small indigenous community of Pemones within the Canaima National Park (Venezuelan Rainforest). It works as a previous stop on the way to Roraima Tepuy, a very famous touristic destination that consists on trekking and hiking the Tepuy. The Paraitepuy community offers guides and porters for the tour to Roraima Tepuy. On the other hand, CVG Edelca, the electricity national company and its corporation for the development of the South of Venezuela is trying to develop guidelines to keep the heritage and cultural identity of the communities, as well the prevention of rapid modernisation and its consequences and threats for the indigenous communities. Therefore the aim of this project was to identify the priorities that had to be addressed; the commons and cultural heritage of the community; establish by proposing facilities and guidelines for design; land management that allows to preserve the traditions; and simultaneously give time and space to the touristic activities and sustainable growth. A diagnosis workshop was made with some representatives of the community that included children. The purpose of this was to identify the main problems and threats that the touristic activity and the modernisation of nearest communities might affect the settlement. Pemones have always been very respectful of nature and their environment, but mass tourism and poor policies make them vulnerable to drastic changes with dire consequences. The workshop proofed to be succesfull. It allowed to generate a possible future vision for the town; the first guidelines for the elaboration of the final report; land management proposal; and priority to water management.
