FAN URBANISM TOPO-RESPONSIVE INHABITATION IN ALLUVIAL FAN Spring 2018 URBAN DESIGN STUDIO III Water Urbanism Aqaba, Jordan with Leslie Chuang, Wan-ting Tsai, Tian Guo Division of Work - Schematic Design, Mapping, GIS Analysis, 3D Modeling, Landscape Design, Performance Space Design, Rendering, Animation

WHAT IF Anchor as a top-down operation can trigger bottom-up landscape transformation in Yutum Alluvial Fan?

]

STATEMENT FAN URBANISM aims to generate a responsive landscape in alluvial fans along Wadi Arabah that coexists with urban settlement. The proposed adaptive system utilizes stormwater and sediment as a productive asset and emerges to a nodal network. Starting with top-down operation, stormwater will be reclaimed by decommissioning existing water channel. As water flows back into the alluvial fan, testing anchor will be planted accordingly to collect water and sediment as well as to rebuild natural habitat, experimenting soil fertility and water catchment at these points. At locations with more resource accumulation, anchors can be rebuilt as infrastructure units that allow for transportation and utility connection. These infrastructure anchors can expand as a nodal network, collecting and sharing resources such as water and solar energy that sets up the ground for future urbanization. In this way, anchor as top-down operation can trigger bottom-up landscape transformation in Yutum Alluvial Fan, which would also become a replicable inhabitation statergy that could apply to the alluvial fans in the region.

Thus mapping differs from ‘planning’ in that it entails searching, finding and unfolding complex and latent forces in the existing milieu rather than imposing a more-or-less idealized project from on high. Moreover, the synoptic imposition of the ‘plan’ implies a consumption(or extinguishing) of contextual potential, wherein all that is available is subsumed into making of the project. Mapping, by contrast, discloses, stages and even adds potential for later acts and events to unfold. Whereas the plan leads to an end, the map provides a generative means, a suggestive vehicle that ‘points’ but does not overly determine. - Mappings, Denis Cosgrove

Twisted road design can also create plenty of extra space for outdoor area of cafes and green infrastructures

In order to encourage the low-carbon commute, extra space can also act as the parking area for buses and bikes racks

Elevated crossing could also reduce the car speed to provide better pedestrian experience

INTEGRATING URBAN VILLAGE REIMAGINE A WAY FOR URBAN VILLAGE TO COEXIST WITH THE CITY Fall 2017 URBAN DESIGN SEMINAR FABRICS AND TYPOLOGIES : NEW YORK/GLOBAL Shenzhen, China with Kyungmin Cho

STATEMENT Gangxia village, as the only existing ‘Urban Village’ in the CBD of Shenzhen, suffers the same issues as others. Most of the buildings in Gangxia village are the typical ‘handshake’ buildings, which are placed so close to each other, that one could literally shake hands with your neighbour in the opposite building. The mazy, narrow alleys that shaped out of those dense, irregular structures face only a very small strip of daylight, also known as the so-called ‘thin skyline’ in Chinese. These kinds of buildings were mostly built in the ‘planting houses’ movement in late 90s to 2004, when the indigenous villagers found out the more buildings they own, the more compensation they can get when the urban renewal happens to their village. They ignored all the standards that are vital to provide decent living condition such as ventilation and sunlight and built them not just denser but also higher than they used to. Some of the indigenous villagers even broke the red line and invaded the public space and road space. The urban fabric of Gangxia village eventually stopped to grow after a strict regulation passed by Shenzhen government in 2004 illegalizing all the private houses built after and the owners of which would be punished heavily. After analyzing the street hierarchy and the utilization of the street spaces of Gangxia village, our proposal wants to retain the the commercial vitality and human scale of the pedestrian streets by reorganizing the street hierarchy that separates pedestrian and vehicles and limiting the number of floors of the buildings that face the market streets. Also, to improve the living condition of the tenants, the buildings also follow several basic rules: 1) Adjust the building height according the climate feature of Shenzhen to provide better ventilation and sunlight; 2) Inner green space for residents and extra green space on the roof top; 3) Underground parking entrance space.

THE HEART TRAIL A TRAIL SYSTEM TO IMPROVE HEALTH CONDITION IN POUGHKEEPISE Fall 2017 URBAN DESIGN STUDIO II American Cities & Regional Context Poughkeepsie, NY with Xianyao Xia, Huanyu Chen, Gigi Singh Division of Work - Schematic Design, Mapping, GIS Analysis, 3D Modeling, Landscape Design, Performance Space Design, Rendering, Animation

STATEMENT THE HEART TRAIL, is a new infrastructure of healthy mobility, connecting Poughkeepsie's existing and new trails, parks, commuting routes, and health-related services. THE HEART TRAIL addresses the effects of heart disease, a central problem for many Americans, and a disproportionate part of life for minority and low income groups in small cities like Poughkeepsie. With a history of disinvestment, the loss of services, undermaintained parks, and destructive infrastructures like the arterial system, Poughkeepsie's population, especially in neighborhoods in the North Side, suffers from a lack of healthy choices, and thus suffers from a high mortality rate of heart disease. THE HEART TRAIL creates a framework for programs, new social and health facilities, community centers, community gardens and connect stations which provide medical and physical supports. This new system will address the dire health status of the City's North Side but is also a model for intervention in other stressed communities.

PEDESTRIANIZATION IMPROVING WALKBILITY IN STATEN ISLAND NORTH SHORE Summer 2017 URBAN DESIGN STUDIO I The 5 Borough Staten Island, NY with Jesse Hirakawa, Ruilan Jia, Yeonkyu Park Division of Work - Schematic Design, Master Plan Design, Landscape Design, Performance Space Design, Rendering

STATEMENT On the north shore of Staten Island, there will be an increase in its residence and visitors because of the rezoning along Bay St. and the addition of new development at St. George Terminal. With this influx of people, Staten Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historical Main Street, Bay Street is not a friendly pedestrian experience, also the access to the waterfront is lacking connection. We are proposing a more safe and pedestrian friendly experience along Bay Street and creating a more fluid experience along the waterfront. To enhance the connection between bay st and the waterfront, we will be closing some of the connecting streets. We will activate these series of streetscapes and open spaces for functions as a place for arts, a place for athletic activities, and a place for community.
