The Tu Bong Master Plan maintains and fosters the health and integrity of the native physical and ecological landscapes. It strives to conserve a continuous band of productive agricultural land as an infrastructural landscape that organizes the site. It will maintain habitat, serve as a unique amenity, and create a natural identity for both permanent inhabitants and visitors to the new sustainable development. Its form is derived from a direct mapping of the existing agricultural land. It acts as a central park at the heart of the site. The resulting linear band or belt of landscape feeds the rest of the site. Finally, a rigorous mapping of the physical landscape results in a series of vectors that will serve to give scale and structure to this immense site. It is dervied from the natural characteristics of the site and the manmade structures that inhabit them. Those include the modular shrimp farms and canals that line the water's edge, islands in the bay and view corridors to the mountains to the north of the site.

The Tu Bong Master Plan protects and enhances water quantity and quality. The plan reserves riparian corridors that connect the sea ot the streams that flow from the mountains north of the site. The connective tissue enhances the natural water flow, maintains habitat corridors, organizes the plan into developable neighborhoods and increases value by creating additional waterfront properties. Connective canal streets organize the organically developed irrigation canals into an urban amenity. The waterscape serves as arteries or veins that irrigate the productive landscape at the heart of the project. Every portion of the site maintains a direct relationship to the water even if it is not adjacent to the bay.

culture + health + education + governance ►

transport ►

Social programs, including cultural, health, education and governance, act as a catalyst of activity integrated into the urban fabric. Operating as a network, they serve to link communities and encourage interaction. The cultural zone includes museums, theaters and a creative mixed-use district that would create a critical mass of artistic activity. The civic district extends the cultural center to create a connection of public activities from the northern edge of the site to the waterfront. A sports center made up of a series of venues, training grounds and recreational fields is sited adjacent to the central agripark. An entertainment center, along with the main train station, forms the gateway at the eastern edge of the site. A marine research center sits on the water's edge while a research and development center brings new high technology to the bay. Finally, primary and secondary schools as well as health centers will be located in each of these districts with a focus on the particular program of each.

The Tu Bong Master Plan provides congestion-and pollution-free mobility for all inhabitants and visitors. This is accomplished through a layered hierarchy of well defined highways, light rail lines, streets, and pedestrian connections. A series of linear boulevards run parallel to and navigate the space between the existing highway and the coastline. Three additional canal streets supplement this linear system and serve as part of the water management system. The urban fabric is further delineated by smaller scale streets that serve as connective tissue between the highway and the coastline. Their axis and spacing are based on a mapping of the farm structures at the water's edge and a series of geographically important points along the site's length.


atmosphere + materials + energy ► The natural systems of Tu Bong offer the opportunity to both conserve and utilize on site resources to produce energy and reduce emissions into the environment. A network of decentralized and distributed systems is envisioned to supply clean energy. A series of energy parks are the most visible portion of this innovative infrastructure. They provide connective public space inhabited by pedestrian scaled vertical wind turbines and solar panels that will power the park and hopefully adjacent neighborhoods. Additionally, any transfer stations or eco-friendly energy production plants would occur in the interactive zone where energy use is made visible to those who live and visit Tu Bong. These demonstration areas would be supplemented by clean energy production via a hydroelectric installation at the new reservoir, wind turbines on higher elevations and water turbines integrated into the bay that would capitalize on tidal changes.

community ► The Tu Bong Master Plan fosters integrated, connected community identity for all inhabitants. The plan recognizes existing ocmmunities on the site and integrates their organic forms into the new urban structure. The existing community's neighborhoods were adapted to and organized around natural streams and logical circulation. These forms remain as islands, referencing the existing communities, in a new urban fabric that is derived from a careful mapping of site conditions including the modular shrimp farms and geographic points of reference. This new fabric is then grouped into comfortably scaled districts. These neighborhoods form developable areas that would be phased as the new city matures. They would each have the amenities of modern urban life with direct access to adjacent natural and productive landscapes.

value ►

The Tu Bong Master Plan fosters the balanced exchange of goods and services. It is planned to be a living city that needs commerce to thrive. This vibrancy that is part of Vietnamese life is provided through multiple types of commercial activity. The new city will be defined by two shopping districts or streets. One is a luxury shpping street that runs through the center of the resort and hotel district. The second follows the line of the commercial street that ties together the existing villages. This is the center of activity in the new city and moves through the cetnral business district through the middle of the mixeduse, mid-density residential fabric. This central business district has a riverwalk at its center that seves as pedestrian shopping and recreational promenade. Adjacent ot the central business district is a commercial zone that containes Silicon Valley-like hightech and bio-tech space in addition to creative open space to be used in the future. These facilities would rely on benign manufacturing that causes no harm in their production.

The Tu Bong Master Plan creates and sustains value for investors by capitalizing on the latent potential of the site as revealed through the concepts presented in the previous lenses. The urban fabric that results is economically divided into developable parcels of a variety of scales. These parcels are organized into the previously described neighborhoods. Every neighborhood has unique characteristics and direct access to natural land and waterscapes, cultural amentities, an efficient transportation. Collectively, these neighborhooods are structured as three phases of development. Phase one is located at the eastern third of Tu Bong site. It builds on the development of the new train station, adjacent tourism opportunities, and port development to provide recreational and living opportunities. The second phase site at the center of the site and presents a mature community with a regionally important city center. Finally, a third phase is developed at the western third of the site that builds off the previously developed phases.

TU BONG NEW URBAN ZONE CONCEPTUAL MASTER PLAN

â–ź land use plan


301

The Tu Bong Master Plan is a composite of the concepts presented throughout the previous lenses. Each system has a specific purpose that builds a whole greater than their singular effects. This systematic approach resolves all factors within context with each other as a means to optimize rather than maximize. The plan creates and maintains an ecologically sensitive vision for the government, the developer, the city, and the inhabitants over the life cycle of the city. The resulting urban fabric is an innovative and complex mixture of land uses, public spaces, and infrastructure. It is locally attuned and responsive as it will constantly adapt to its surroundings. This ensures that it is totally integrated into the environment, social, and economic aspects of the site.
