Carved Nature: As gardens are an expressions of man’s relationship with nature,we use gardens to visualize, re-interpret,and re-discover different types of natures while building a link between communities. Therefore the overall concept of “Gardens in Four Natures“ is a series of garden patches carved into the four existing but disconnected site conditions of the IGA Berlin 2017. The design concept emphasizes four essences or occurrences of nature; undisturbed, productive, garden, and recovered. Patches, mechanic lines, and an urban mesh integrate the four existences of nature. The result is a stimulating atmosphere with visual appeal that increases native habitat; productive capacity; and community connectivity. 02

Wan-Nian Creek is the river of life in Pingtung City. It runs through city and has huge impact for local development. In order to preserve this area, Pingtung government is actively improving the landscape around Wan-Nian Creek to restore the ecological leisure environment. Before the remediation of Wannian River in Pingtung City, its water quality was notoriously black and odorous. To make matters worse, construction projects covered up the river and obstructed people from accessing the water. The EPA began promoting river remediation work in 2007 by successively subsidizing the Pingtung County Government to hold the Wannian River Basin Comprehensive Remediation Plan. This plan unfolded in six stages with a total cost of NT$180 million. 06

With strategies including effluent interception, water recharge, natural purification engineering and riverbank landscape rebuilding. The plan has greatly improved Wannian River water quality and the riverine environment has seen the reappearance of fish. After removal of the concrete pillars originally standing in the water, riverbank landscape greening and beautification construction have given a new face to the Wannian River, benefitting the 220,000 people who live along its banks.

To encourage participation and collaboration in the creation of the Community Hubs, neighborhood stakeholders can collaborate with each other through Website such as Neighborland.-- a simple online platform that can also engage decision makers and developers. Through this website, neighborhood organizations can form from local members to develop a partnership system. They will share their ideas to others to identify and prioritize needs and assets in the community. The group can then find the supporters and volunteers to implement the proposals. These Hubs can move around when there is another residual space in the neighborhood, and allow the community to activate residual land. On weekdays, elements of these Hubs can become mobile and dispersed in different locations in the district or the city. During the weekends, they will converge on the selected sites in Ballard to form the Community Hubs. The temporary nature of these Hubs allows for flexible and open-ended programming. In the future, parts of the Hubs may become permanent public spaces for the community.

We are a generation that uses social networking tools to connect with one another online. However, most contemporary social networking does little to enable real-life social interactions. We spend time sitting in front of our computer and using smart phone easily to interact with others but resulting in spending more time alone. When we open our computers, we shut our doors. Therefore, creating places for people to gather, share, or just waving hello to bridge the community bond is becoming more important. This project’s main goal is to examine the relationship between neighborhood design and social capital. Built environment is important

in encouraging enhanced levels of social and community engagement (i.e., social capital). I chose two residual spaces in Ballard to catalyze them in becoming hubs for citizens in the face of dense development. In Ballard, housing boom has resulted in buildings being torn down and replaced with tall, expensive townhouses and apartment buildings. While greater density is desirable for cities, this pattern of development is also resulting in greater demand for community open space, which is the main focus of this project.

h

ILY

Theoretically, healthy and multi-functional neighborhoods are expected to enhance social capital because they enable residents to interact. Spontaneous “bumping into” neighbors can help to encourage a sense of connection between people and the places they live in the everyday built environment. This interaction can be intentional or accidental. These casual contacts can occur in local parks, or even on the sidewalk. Social interaction can also occur by invitation, not only by chance encounter. These interactions have been theorized to be of great importance for fostering “a web of public respect and trust, and a resource in time of personal or neighborhood need” (Jacobs 1961).

ph

Social capital is defined as social networks and interactions that inspire reciprocity among citizens. Built environment (including the way we design and build our communities and neighborhoods) affects the degree to which people are involved in their communities and with each other. The fundamental premise is that some neighborhood designs enable or encourage community connections, whereas others do not.

The first frontier

Layers of Collaboration

When the Pacific Northwest was colonized by immigrants from the East Coast, their capitalist economic system dictated dominate land uses and promoted using natural resources to turn a quick profit rather than consideration for longterm sustainability.

technological innovation

So-called unclaimed natural abundance and unparalleled technological means to alter nature combined with an unfettered market created a situation of intense ecological disruption. Smokestacks, locomotives, and oil wells represented greatness to those who claimed this land as their own. They saw natural resources as inexhaustible, belonging to them by right, existing solely to support their individualistic selfsufficiency and easy profit. On the seal of the original NW Territory, a fruit bearing tree towered over an ax--felled tree with the motto, Meliorem lapsa locavit, which translates, “from the fallen tree a better one has grown.”

The New Frontier McNeil is a mostly untouched island situated within the densely developed south Puget Sound. On it, we will utilize techniques of adaptive reuse and the wise consumption of natural resources. Having a space to develop a new type of communal organization allows us to influence the future of the interdisciplinary technological revolution. Nearby Seattle is home to many ecologically minded initiatives and companies. Bainbridge Island is home of one of the world’s leading master’s programs dedicated to sustainable innovation. Pierce and King Counties are hubs for quality startups and have huge amounts of capital to attract creative and entrepreneurial talent. Within the unique cocoon of McNeil Island, Vita3.0 will provide a wholly unique opportunity for the creativity, collaboration, conservation, and innovation necessary to ensure a sustainable and livable future.

Our main goal is to make spaces that integrate the community into its context, leading people to participate in and enrich their experiences within the town. We have proposed a community garden and an ecovore center as possible identifying landmarks for Fall City. In the hopes of generating income, we have also proposed a building holding stalls for the commercial distribution of artisanal goods. Smaller projects such as renovating residual spaces and alleyways were not overlooked, as we made our best attempts to meet the needs of different users.

Soft Power In order to solve the flooding and connection issues on both sides of the Snoqualmie River, we launched a green design initiative that delivers cost-efficient and environmentally proactive “greengineered� solutions to these concerns. Our main goal is to transform Fall City into an incubator that nourishes the relationship between nature and its community. Through multiple usages and functions for locals and educational opportunities for outsiders, we hope to propose a self-sufficient community whose story can be easily felt.

Connection Program Project’s goal is to build the active of connection of a walkable, reliable and enjoyable framework vision for the entirety of the project area. Also, find out the possible solution to elevate the human priority and mitigatethe traffic issue. And trying to develop the ability and activity to make effective contributions to the urban problems.

1.Being Ecovore and Localvore

2. Supporting Multiple Activities

3. Eco Tourism

It is an environmentally conscious individual who chooses food that is produced locally and sustainably, with the intention of reducing the carbon footprint in their kitchen.

Fall City has lush natural landscapes, and activities that are equally as rich should be implemented to complement that abundance. Local residents are in need of more open spaces for an array of different activities, and visitors to Fall City need to be presented with opportunities to learn about the town and its surrounding landscape.

The proposals of a community garden, ecovore center, wetlands replacing residual space, alley enhancements, and public bathrooms are all projects intended to not only enrich the lives of Fall City’s residents, but to also introducethe bases for ecotourism. Sustainability is an extremely important concept these days, and it is preeminent in every design. Besides creating a greener and more self-sustaining community, our proposals also anticipate generating revenue that will further support Fall City.

With the proposals of a community garden and an ecovore center, I am introducing the concept of consuming products that come straight out of your backyard. Without having to import produce from long distances away, fuel consumption and carbon production will decrease, and local businesses will be able to thrive without external competition.

Plant.Prosperity.People People will only consider environmental importance if it comes with prosperity


Part I Research: Fog Collectors As the Andean glaciers melt and water becomes an ever scarcer and more expensive resource, sustaining reliable and affordable access will be increasingly critical for communities like Lomas de Zapallal. By harvesting water out of the air and using it to create resilient and regenerative ecologies, the community of Lomas de Zapallal can move from a position of precarious reliance on outside inputs to one of stability, self-suffiency, and empowerment. This design utilizes small scale vegetative fog collection systems to build a larger water distribution system throughout the community. The goal of this design is to create various storage functions, through reservoirs, that can collect and contain water for future use. Through using vegetative fog collectors, primarily native Peruvian tree species, reforestation efforts to bring more community shared, multifunctional green space can also be achieved.

Evolution of Water This site is surrounded by mountain, park and waterfront. But the largest green space is located at outside of levee in this community. There are a lot of youngers go here playing soccer. However, it is weak connection with local community. They seldom come here.

Recently, the government proposes to demolish current public housing and redesign. That would be an opportuniy to strengthen the connection between human and environment. Make not only vistors but also local citizen to realize the cultural story through expanding the open space and blurring the boundary.

Hybrid space Under the development of our modern city, we seldom consider the functions for nature. We ignore it. Therefore, I predict that people can release more spaces for nature, also make we have an opportunity to know the importance of nature.

1.Effectively control density and populaiton distribution in metropolisbuilding. 2.Improve the quality of ground level, and increse the open area validity. 3.Increases the multiplicity of building causing the metropolis landscape interested.
