HEALING LICTON SPRINGS

----REVEALING THE PAST TOWARDS A RESILIENT FUTURE Capstone Studio Project at University of Washington, 2016.1-2016.6 Location: Aurora-Licton Springs Neighborhood, Seattle Supervisor: Julie Johnson WASLA Merit Award, Independent Work

PROJECT STATEMENT Licton Springs was once a healing, commercial and recreational center for Native Americans, and it used to be heavily forested, and filled with numerous mineral springs, bogs, and marshes. However, most of these are lost, meanwhile new opportunities are coming to this neighborhood, including increasing population density and three new schools. The design tries to heal and revitalize the neighborhood by envisioning a network that merges Licton Springs’ history with future opportunities, to create a new educational, recreational, ecological and cultural center!

1. LACK VITALITY

2. LACK GREEN SPACE

3. LACK CONNECTION

This site is located inside the scope of Residential Urban Village, and has experienced gentrified process. However, the neighborhood lacks vitality , especially the commercial along Aurora.

The area along Aurora in the scope of site is lack of green spaces according to this map, as well as from the report of community.

This neighborhood is in need for walkable streets in order to build a network that can connect to different destinations.

Multi-functional Plaza The design uses P-Patches, green houses to recall the past farming history. Combining with the existing topography, the design also creates steps for seating, viewing, slides for play , and splash area for interactive activity. The interactive fountain collects the stormwater of the plaza. The plaza can also be used as a performance space.

Pond in Licton Springs Park This spot is a core nod which connects Aurora commercial area, licton springs park and the new school. Instead of directly diverting the water to the underground pipe, the design reclaims the historic springs with a pond by making use of the water on site for recreational and educational activity. Native American used to drink the spring for healing.

Woodlawn Ave: Daylight the historic stream by stormwater treatment This street used to be the route of the historic Licton Springs Creek, the design daylights the stream by green storm water infrastructure. Not only does it create a nice connection between the school and the park for kids, but also help solving the flooding issue on Woodlawn Ave.

Master Plan


A Waterfront For All This proposal creates spaces facilitating the cohabitation of the species that use the Seattle waterfront. Implementing green stormwater infrastructure along Vine St, the rail corridor, and Alaskan Way is key to the success of this proposal. The plants used for bio-filtration of urban stormwater will support the coexistence of many urban species. Mitigating stormwater runoff on site reduces the need for the combined sewer system. The bio-filtered stormwater will be clean enough to return to the local ecosystem eventually leaving Elliott Bay clean enough to support human activity.

PROJECT STATEMENT Our site is located at Eliseo Collazos, one of the slum neighborhoods in Lima. Due to the limited green space in this area, we propose building a multifunctional space for the community to relax and play. We incorporate "Kit of Parks" products into our design, and at the same time to make the park more attractive, ecological and flexible. We hope through our design to invite people to recreate and regenerate this park based on their current available materials. We also try to create and maintain a sustainable and recycled system to improve the living conditons of the people in this slum area.

TANGIBLE SOUND Studio Project at University of Washington Location: Seattle, WA Advisor: Laura Haddad, 2015 Fall Independent Work

PROJECT STATEMENT Inspired by the topography of Seattle and the pattern of oyster shell, the design tries to provide people an unique experience to get a close encounter with Puget Sound. This island turns the emotion of Puget Sound to Art by transferring the intangible light, wind, sound to tangible landscape, which you are able to watch, listen, touch and feel. When wandering through the shape, people can greet the sunset, feel the changing color of light, listen to the sound of waves and wind, as well as touch the water to discover sea life. It’s a place full of surprise!

DESIGN PROCESS Through a 3D printing exploration process, and the experiment of lighting, the project evolves from a simple shell shape to a whole island system, which combines landscape and diverse activities. In this design, the pattern of shell continues, but the materials change to meet the needs of different functions. The color of sunset is distilled to apply on the glass between ribs, so people can enjoy the sunset color on ground even during daytime.

UNDER THE VIADUCT Group Project submitted for ASLA Communication category Location: I5, Seattle, WA Group work with Yoonshin Guo, Patty Chen, Zhehao Huang

PROJECT STATEMENT Viaduct improve lives. The structure connects areas that were once separated, and provides the public with unparalleled scenery against an urban or natural background. Viaducts also improve transportation efficiency and plays a key role in urban growth. They create exciting connections between urban landscapes and foster human relationships. However, the looming giants also produce unintended and counterproductive environments. Many viaducts create barriers by blocking sunlight and isolating spaces. The spaces found beneath viaducts are often abandoned, and become unwelcoming due to a lack of proper management. These spaces, which have such huge potential, are often relegated to serve as impromptu camps for the homeless, parking lots, or freight storage. The current state of viaduct space is a shame. In this project, we demonstrate some possibilities that can be leveraged Under the Viaduct.

“It was with the Freeway, cutting through the very heart of the city, that Seattle began taking one of its wrong turns and started to lose its identity as a city.� ------ Paul Thiry
