What is a civic space? And how can we design a civic space that faithfully reflects the cultural context? These questions are being explored in the case of Johor Bahru. Despite being a modernized city, Johor Bahru does not have a proper civic space for people. There are many reasons behind the absence of civic spaces, be it the urban development, political issues, or economic development... The Johor Bahruans may have a prosper life, but they lack a civic space to realize their civic rights. Their rights to protect people's freedom, to gather, to express opinions and publish. And they urgently need one. In addition to the civic space, the history of the city is also intentionally concealed by the government as a mean to suppress Chinese people, who contributed a lot to the development of the city. This is done by narrowing and covering Sungai Segget (Segget River), the mother river of the city, which is the original Chinese settlement as well as the birthplace of modern Johor Bahru. This project aims to introduce a new civic space in the center of the city that respond to the Malaysian context, and to let the people to understand the history of their hometown. The new civic space, Segget Island Plaza, is designed for undetermined programs, which people can decide their own activities. Sungai Segget, being frozen at 1887, is re-ex p o s ed alo ng with its sto ries and penetrates the u rban fab ric o f Jo ho r Bah ru o nce again in the fo rm o f circular patterns . Th e des ign als o provid es s helters fo r peo ple to es cape fro m the hu mid heat. The wh o le d es ign can be ex p erien ced as a jo urney, which allow peo p le to ex plo re the relatio ns h ip between the histo r y an d co ntemp o rar y by th e means o f walking.

Regarding this, it is decided to bring back the island and transform the area to a plaza for gathering, fulfilling its original purpose. An old map of the city with the river is placed in the heart of the plaza.

With the new civic space alone it is insufficient to attract people to use the space. This is because of the tropical climate of Malaysia. The high humidity and temperature keeps people indoor and away from the outdoor areas. Thus, it is crucial to make the site as comfortable as possible under the unbearable weather. Bamboo is used as the main material as it is readily available in Malaysia, with low production and maintenance cost, and strong but light nature. BAMBOO SHELTER Sheltering the circles from the intense Sun.

UNDERGROUND RESERVOIR (NORMAL TIME) Ths reservoir acts as an insulation layer to prevent heat from transferring to the ground. This helps keeping the ground surface cool under the intense tropical heat.

ETCHING Etchings are marked on the circles, telling the stories of the early Chinese settlers and the history of Johor Bahru.

RESERVOIR (DURING RAIN) Water is stored in the reservoir during rain. The water stored can help keeping the ground cool by bringing the heat away through evaporation.

Moonee Ponds Creek, which was once a natural winding creek, is now notorious for being a stormwater ditch with serious contamination. It is said the creek has lost its soul. This project aims to revive the creek by freeing it from the concrete confinement and to predict how will the creek naturally develop back into a naturalized waterway over years. With the impervious concrete removed, it is expected that the creek will be able to reshape the landscape again. With the power of water as well as nature, the place will come alive again, thriving with plants and animals. An initial launching pattern will be designed for the creek to play with. The components of the patterns, namely “islands”, are constructed with clayey soil by pouring on top of the land surface. As time goes by, the landform will be reshaped continuously, resulting in a completely different landscape that can only be achieved by the nature. Contrary to many waterways projects, the real designer is in fact the nature who does most of the landscaping work while the human involvement is limited to the pattern design. This is to challenge the idea of “human controls everything ” which dominates in the field of Landscape Architecture. In most of the landscaping projects, it is about creating landscapes that can be managed for human entertainment, which disregards the fact that most of the landscapes we see are first created by the nature. This project aims to remind people that nature still governs the world we live, and the nature is too great for us to deny its existence.

It is a canvas for the nature to paint. It is a stage for the nature to perform . To showcase its wonders. Nat ure i s ever y w here.

The pattern adopted for the design resembles mud cracks. Mud crack is a type of landform derived from dried clay. When soil moisture evaporates, network-like patterns form on soil surfaces. This matches with the nature of the creek as clay is the main type of soil in the creek basin, and the water volume of Moonee Ponds Creek is always low. This pattern also allows water to flow in different directions within the landscape, shaping the clay islands in different ways. This adds on further complexity and freedom for the future landform. For application, the outline of mud cracks are fit into the channel which is then stitched and trimmed to create the islands.

They will be submerged at different water levels.

The demolished concrete chunks are either used as the fillings for the gabions, or the materials for the new concrete banks on which the gabions are placed. The gabions have two functions: Firstly, it protects and strengthens the creek banks from collapsing. Secondly, the gabions can serve as a filter capturing the rubbish and silt flowing from the upstream. It also allows the cleaners and volunteers to collect the rubbish more easily and effectively. The concrete banks contain three steps that extended into the creek. The 1.6m-tall islands are built on top of them. This is to prevent formation of dangerous cliffs when the islands have eroded and disappeared over time.

Currently, people are barred from entering the creek. Fences are set up along the edge to prevent trespassing. With the new gabions and concrete banks, people are welcome to visit and access the creek. The structures have transformed the edges in to a stage, where the creek will be the performer and the people will be the audience. The people can sit and enjoy themselves on the gabions and banks, admiring and observing the changes at a very close distance.

These rules are based on the fluvial process and plant succession that influence the formation of the landscapes, aiming to make the simulation more true to reality.

S I M U L A T I O N

STREAM MORPHOLOGY

1 water flows in the least resistant route

4 erosion and deposition occur at the outer bank and inner bank respectively

2 water flow changes direction when impacting directly at obstacles

5 deposition occurs in the gaps of islands protected from the fluvial process

3 water flows along obstacles if not hit directly

6 the creek branches into numerous streams at the beginning stages which merge into few at the later stages

PLANT SUCCESSION

1 vegetation grow near to the water source

4 vegetation grow where other plants are already settled

34

T H E

C R E E K

2 vegetation grow where the water flow is slow

5 vegetation avoid frequently disturbed areas

3 plant species are likely to be the ones from the upstream and surrounding areas

6 vegetation avoid newly deposited unstable soil


S I M U L A T I O N

P R O C E S S

In the simulation process, water centerline is used to speculate the flow and direction of the water. The centerline is the main axis of the fluvial flow. By using the water centerlines, it is possible to know where the fluvial process, i.e. erosion and deposition, takes place in the creek. After that, the islands are adjusted and modified accordingly.

During the change, a new ecosystem will develop gradually. It will be an ecosystem that is different from the previous ecosystems, which are: 1 the ecosystem before channelization: a wetland or riparian / floodplain landscape 2 the ecosystem after channelization: an urban concrete waterway The new ecosystem will be the third successor of the landscape. It shall have the reminiscence of the first and second ecosystem. At its mature stage, it will be a channelized waterway with traces of wetlands and riparian landscapes.

2

In the third ecosystem, the concrete surface will be replaced with clay and areas will be colonized by the fauna and flora from nearby communities. This will be an ecosystem that is unique to Moonee Ponds Creek.

Since its establishment, Queen Victoria Market (QVM) is known as the representation of food culture in Melbourne. It is the place where Melburnians buy their groceries and enjoy delicious cuisines. But in the near future, the status of QVM may be weakened as people will rarely cook, thanks to technological advancements. This project aims to adapt QVM into an outdoor cooking and dining areas for the future city dwellers to re-experience manual cooking. By enjoying the fun of cooking, it helps strengthen the bonding among family members and encourage social interactions among Melburnians. A set of colourful cooking furniture is developed to be installed in Queen Street, between the main buildings and sheds of QVM. It allows the full celebration of dining rituals, from purchasing food to cooking to enjoying the dishes. Mug kitchen and playground are also included in the furniture, which encourages children to appreciate cooking and food. The theme of food can be found everywhere in QVM.

No matter it is the past, the present, or the future, QVM is and will always be the food icon of Melbourne. 43

QVM was established as the major market of Melbourne in 1878. It was first used as a wholesale market and then transformed into a retail market in 1969. The market has played an significant role in people's lives as it supplies food for the daily consumption of many Melburnians.

A L I V E

T H R I V E

There are many activities happening in the QVM in both day and night, and nearly all of them are associated with food! From buying grocery to having a boost of caffeine, getting a plate of paella to attending weekend barbecue class! It is a place where people can think about food, talk about food, and of course, enjoy the food!

With better technology available, future people are very likely to rely on robots and electrical appliances for cooking, redefining our old rituals completely. Manual cooking may be treated as recreation rather than a means to survive. Hence, there is a need to preserve and promote the traditional way of cooking.

This gives rise to the idea of constructing an outdoor cooking and dining areas for the future city dwellers to re-experience manual cooking.

For the furniture, it is decided that it will be produced in a series of components which they can join together to form the letters. This enables the components to be replaced individually when damaged, or rearranged to form new patterns if desired.

With the blooming of the high-rise structures around QVM, many Melburnians can now enjoy the spectacular window view showing the whole site of the QVM. This gives a chance to manipulate the layout of furniture into a slogan that inspires and encourages the residents to do something different from their daily routine.

Multiple grassy sitting mounds are put inside the furniture which allow people to take a break after a meal, or to enjoy their cooking by the means of picnic. The height of the mounds has been adjusted to avoid the users from feeling uncomfortable caused by the human-wall effect. The users' view will not be blocked by diners.

In a grassy corner near the Physics Building of the University of Melbourne, there lies a secret that no one has ever known. There is a underground bunker hidden below the green guise which was used for nuclear experiments during the Cold War. After decades of lying dormant, it is time for people to know about the bunker's story. The bunker reaches out its hand, slowly crawling out of the ground... This projects aims to create an iconic space for student to use which serves as a spot of interest on the periphery of the Parkville Campus. This helps to encourage students and the public to explore the edge of the campus which is often ignored. The site also serves as an extension of the nearby Potter Cafe, providing spaces for the users to enjoy their coffee. In response to the history of the site, a sculpture resembling a crawling hand is designed as a result of the “communication” with the bunker. Assuming it is affected by the nuclear activities, the bunker is “mutated” and personified during the design process, which gives out the deduction of its desire of coming out of the ground.

With the design, the bunker's dream is realized.

59


B E I N G W I L D W I T H B R A I N S T O R M I N G T H E P E R S O N I F I E D B U N K E R The main idea in this project is to experiment with both ideas and forms. In order to make the design more related to the site attributes, a very different approach was taken: imagining the bunker was alive and the design was able to chat with the bunker.

I am a lonely I am a classified No one ever know I really miss the lovely

The Department of Defence in West Maribyrnong has been an out-ofbounds military zone since the World Wars. During the blood-shedding years, hundred thousands of wartime supplies and war horses were sent out from West Maribyrnong to the front lines, leaving multiple blast mounds and Fisher Stable in the site. Research are still carried out in the 128-hectare site, but most of the facilities are defunct. In the future, the site will no longer be a restricted area and will be slowly converted into a new community, providing new homes for up to 5000 people. This project has covered both large-scale site planning and smallscale detailed design. As a whole, the project aims to transform West Maribyrnong into an energetic, youthful and green community within its rich historical context. Most of the existing items, from vegetation to history, are held at high regard in the design. The historical buildings are fully revitalized with ample green spaces being incorporated into the site. In this community, different kinds of housing are provided to cater the needs of different people. Public facilities including hospital and school are also included to ensure a good life for the residents. Some iconic zones such as Heritage Hub and Remount Hill Park are also included as the spots of interests, showcasing the remarkable history of the site.

As a result, the site will become an extraordinar y community that connects past and future generations. 69


P L A N N I N G A P P R O A C H O V E R L A Y I N G A N A L Y S I S The site is full of contaminated spots and hilly areas. In order to identify the areas that is suitable for development, overlaying analysis was adopted, dividing the land into four categories regarding different aspects: most suitable, suitable, suitable, qualified and restricted.

The demolished construction materials and rubbles are re-used to build the new infrastructure, such as the paving of the roads.

The views are maximized by the application of the height hierachy: the taller buildings are placed in the inner areas of the site.

Trees are grown along the roads to maximize greenery and to minimize air and thermal pollution. They also give a better appearance for the community.

Many war horses embarked on their journey from Remount Hill to the battlefields during the World Wars, but they never returned. 136,000 horses except one, Sandy, were not honoured for their sacrifice. It is time to recognize the contribution of these war horses by giving them a symbolic burial ground.

D E S I G N F O R A G A R D E N G A R D E N O F H I D D E N P E R S P E C T I V E S There is a small corner around the Oval in the University of Melbourn which no one really cares about... It has spectacular views but they area wasted! If they are well-framed, it will enable people to realize and enjoy the views better. The aim of the design is about enframing the views. Plantings are used as visual cues, highlighting and concealing views. This is assisted by the redesign of path and the modification of landform, which manipulates people's viewing angles, and visually creates an isolated viewing stage and elevates the site respectively. There are four existing River Red Gum trees, which are retained and used as "pillars" for the viewing frames. There are 62 species in total in this garden. Plants with fine-textured foliage and yellow colour are used dominantly in this design.

The aim of the design is to reduce solar heat gain of the building through the roof, and to provide a long period of floral and foliage interest throughout the year for the occupants. Contrary to the tradition green roofs which heavily feature succulents, leafy evergreen plants are largely employed as they are more effective in minimizing heat gain. These plants are tolerant to both drought and wind, making them possible to be adapted to the harsh environmental condition of green roofs. Since the green roof can be viewed from a living area, it is hoped to create an elegant picture for daily viewing by using minimal contrasting colours â&#x20AC;&#x201C; warm hues and silvery-whitish green are the dominant colours of the design. Plants of different textures and shapes are selected in hope of giving interesting visual and touching experience when the occupants appreciate the plants in a close distance.

Music Plane is a portable music speaker in the shape of a paper plane. It can be connected to and controlled by electronic devices via Bluetooth or USB connection. The speaker can be switched on by blowing on the microphone. It is designed for young adults who want to share their music conveniently with the stylish music speaker at a reasonable price. It is hard for them to get their ideal speakers because most music speakers available are neither cheap nor fashionable. Music plane is inspired by paper plane which symbolizes hopes and dreams. It encourages people to do what they want. Also, the gift carries a meaning of “take off ” as it can be activated by blowing on it. By receiving this blissful gift, friends, families, peers, or even business partners will be encouraged and blessed to fulfill their longing dreams and to have their careers “taken off ”. The product design was awarded with the Merit in the Hong Kong Smart Gift Design Awards 2013 (Student Group).

Forming part of the exhibition, this piece of art aims to show that sex is all around. People in Hong Kong are discouraged and restrained from having sex freely and comforably due to limited living space. But if we step a little bit forward, and review the city from a different perspective, people can actually enjoy sex everywhere! The installation art demonstrates the skyline of Hong Kong constructing from â&#x20AC;&#x153;condoms". The condoms are erected acylic board in different colours, representing different regions. It implicates that the night life in Hong Kong is vivid and fun, and also symbolizes that sex is everywhere regardless of its inadequate space. Sex is all around! This artwork was exhibited in the 6 th Hong Kong Sex Cultural Festival, helding in the Jockey Club Creative Arts Center, Shek Kip Mei. It is now located in the Academy of Visual Arts in Hong Kong Baptist University as a permanent display. * This art work was jointly created by Ka Wing Cheung, Sui Mei Chu, Nga Wun Cheung, Iris Fong and Lok Yee Wong. The workload were equally shared by all members.
