Kendall Creek Regional Park Professor: Charlene LeBleu Term: 2015 Summer
This project emphasizes natural systems analysis as a basis for site planning large-scale community facilities and parks. Complex cultural and ecological processes of place are investigated within a site context and used to bring forth meaningful form and sense of place.
Site Inventory The “Fall Line” is an ancient shoreline that extends across the Southeast where clay soils give way to sandier soils, and rivers and streams “fall” from higher to lower elevations. The Kendall Creek Tract is located on the Chattahoochee Fall Line, where the Chattahoochee River watershed overlaps the Fall Line. It is a place of diverse wildlife, where longleaf pine forests provide shelter for rare species like gopher tortoises and red-cockaded woodpeckers. The Kendall Creek Tract (KCT) is an 817-ac conservation tract that seeks to have a discourse of longleaf pine ecology, citizen recreation and historic value of Creek Indian.
Kendall Creek Trail
Walking distance: 2.84 mi Walking time: approximately 1 hour The master plan employs existing logging trails as the design basis. The proposed trail system considers both connectivity among the valuable site features and appropriate elevation changes which will provide better user experience for wider range of users. The multi-use practice field is designed in the consideration of recreational
requirements. The pause moments are arranged along the proposed trail system, which will provide multiple uses (mostly passive use), such as rest areas, picnic space, small camping sites, bird observation points and other functions which will emerge and adapt to the social and cultural demands.

Site Inventory of Outdoor Museum
The proposed Outdoor Museum is located near the southeast side of the County Line Church and it is near the main access point. According to the topography and hydrology analysis, the site has potential to enhance an ephemeral stream which can be gradually developed from small retention habitat to wetland habitat. Therefore, the proposed outdoor
Water color of Initial Vision
museum will be closely related to the siteâ€™s natural resources and demonstrate the educational and research goals. The outdoor museum is proposed as a life-space -- the sense of place will be formed by its growing process. The outdoor museum will be the guiding threshold to explain the history and the growing process of Kendall Creek Track to tourists.
Growing Process of Outdoor Museum
Phase I In phase I, the guiding pathway is proposed as the connection with the trail system in the whole tract. Further, the nearby open slope will be ready to hold various outdoor activities and it is the preparation for setting up the outdoor museum building foundation.
Phase II is mainly for introducing the architectural elements which is the combination of indoor and outdoor structures. In this phase, some small retention habitats near to the ephemeral stream will be developed.
Phase III In phase III, wetland habitat will be developed from retention habitats fragments. The new pathway will then go through the wetland area , responding to the educational and research meaning of the initial vision of the outdoor museum design.

LaFayatte City Recreational Plan Kellem Hill Creek Park Professor: Elise Cormier Term: 2015 Spring
Play is about restoration of the human spirit. This restoration can be through social interaction or quiet individual reflection. In order to enrich the quality of life, the Lafayette city recreational plan aimed to design an optimum play experience by exploring the vernacular context, play typologies and user groups. Kellem Hill Creek Park was proposed as a new city park to provide the potential of ludic landscapes to restore the community.
LaFayette City Recreational Plan The city recreational plan was designed to contribute to a healthy and vibrant small city. It aimed to provide equal chance for citizens to enjoy the various recreational resource, including the baseball field, the old city park, the fair ground, and K.H. Creek Park. The city schools were connected within the recreational resources by
the proposed walking and bicycle trails. Also, the trails would offer equal access for citizens to enjoy and explore recreational resources. The recreational plan as a system can spiritually strengthen the social fabric of this city and physically promote high quality of human habitat.

Klein Park Regeneration
Professor: Jocelyn Zanzot Term: 2014 Fall This site is located in downtown Montgomery, AL, a city with remarkable memorial heritage. At the same time, it is now lacking of vitality due to complex historical factors. This project explores the possibilities when public art engages with urban landscape. In this unique urban context, the public art, demonstrated by memorial meanings, could act as the catalytic landscape to revitalize the urban context.

Klein Park is a small, iconic park in a booming mixed-use neighborhood. The site is positioned at Court Square, between two iconic neighborhoods and between Dexter Avenue that runs east to the Capitol Building and Commerce Street that runs west and connects to Riverfront attractions. Therefore, according to surround context, redesign of this park should consider its unique characters -- heritage, also a city plaza and streetscape.

Memorial Form & Materiality This site is not just a city plaza or streetscape, it is also a memorial heritage space. The site is near the Slaves Market, Rosa Park bus boycott and the historical trail from Selma to Montgomery. The site design should embody powerful memorial meaning as well. The design of the granite paving
motif is inspired by one of the most famous photograph of historical trail movement. And use this representative photograph as the detail expresses historical events and movements in a simple and powerful way.

Upland Logging Memorial Park Professor: Dapeng Liu Term: 2014 Spring
Upland Logging Community is located in the Eastern District of Shenyang which used to be a vibrant ferry port in Qing Dynasty. Due to urbanism impacts, it declined while other districts have developed rapidly. In the context of an uncertain future land use of the site, the proposal intends to prove the siteâ€™s potential of being a new urban memorial park to regenerate the urban marginal memory.

The site, Upland Logging Community, is located in the Eastern District of Shenyang, which was a vibrant ferry in Qing Dynasty. Due to urbanism impacts, it declined like a dead corner of the city while other districts have
developed rapidly. However, the valuable neighborhood atmosphere remains as the precious historical memory that the city is lacking of.
The community shows low quality of life, including poor living condition, lack of public infrastructures. Many current dwellers are migrant workers who have low incomes.
Historical Timeline The site used to house a most vibrant ferry and markets for log transportation from the beginning of Qing Dynasty to 1920s. In 1935, it was an opium factory operated by Japanese government to support their invasion to
China. From 1950 to 2009, the site was one of most important pharmaceutical factories. During those six decades, the pharmaceutical factory made great contributions to public health after liberation. 1935 Japanese opium factory

Design Strategy Most of the communities around the site have been demolished for future land use, while Upland Logging Community remains in the condition of low quality of life. Considering the historical legacy which is precious in a gradually indifferent urban society, the site is really distinctive and valuable . The design focuses on improving quality of life and its historical memory. The proposal rethinks the inactive railroad area in the community which is the only existing available space for community recreation. In the trend of old housing demolition, the city planning has uncertain planning of future land use for the site. Therefore, the proposal also intends to prove the site has potential of being a new urban memorial park.
