prototype site FELLS POINT The channels possess multiple functions that serve all three industries: 1, they expand the social waterfront, they cleanse the water, and become the breeding ground for new industries. All of which give financial benefit to the city. Fells point becomes the first prototype site of the Masterplan;an affluent neighborhood which can easily accommodate the channel, without major infrastructural damage or damage to the social fabric. The channel is relatively minimally invasive; the proposal works with the existing landscape.

CNYRMA FOODHUB SYRACUSE, NY COMP STUDIO spring 2011

CNYRMA FOODHUB The Central New York Regional Market Authority complex is comprised of several sheds which house rented spaces for individual farmers and three commission houses which rent out loading dock spaces to larger distributors. The market has the potential to act as a major distributor on multiple scales. It is already a vital source of produce for Onondaga County but does not act as a distributor to its full potential on a smaller scale. The farmers’ market is located just a few blocks from a lower-income residential community that is in great need of easily available fresh produce. This great resource is blocked off from the community by several hundred feet of industrial wasteland comprised of a number of abandoned warehouses, chain link fences and unfriendly terrain. Currently it is this physical barrier which breaks the flow of the food cycle stages and acts as a direct inhibitor, causing a rift between the DISTRIBUTION [farmers’ market] and CONSUMPTION [community] stages of the food cycle.

Woodward Ave, and the light rail line, is the spine that these modules branch off. The Woodward light rail line acts as a storm water collection system, and dumps the filtered water in the Detroit River. The GREEN RAIL line shrinks the size of Woodward Ave, limiting the large number of cars that come downtown to encourage pedestrians to use the light rail.

The research led to the design of permeable modules that could strategically and slowly over time replace the impervious modules of downtown. These modules would enrich the downtown materials palette. The modules would include: green surfaces, PERMEABLE concrete and asphalt and torn up rubber.

RETHINKING PUBLIC SPACE

“Re-Paving Detroit� seeks to employ storm water management strategies as a means of REMEDIATION and as a way of relieving the sewer system load.

IMPLEMENTATION OF PAVING MATERIAL


paving DETROIT RETHINKING PUBLIC SPACE

Surface permeability studies revealed that downtown Detroit suffers from lack of permeable paving. The current palette is very limited: brick, concrete, and asphalt with a very limited use of green space. The lack of storm water management has many negative effects to the city. The combination of storm water and sewage increases the cost of the purification process, therefore increasing the cost of water to the citizens of Detroit.

engage THE ALLEY AMPLIFYING THE FORGOTTEN RESIDUAL SPACE

Proximity to materials study

Grappling with the frictions between a historic city center and its developing surrounding suburbs, THE ALLEY reaches beyond the walls of a transit hub and injects connective corridors across the cityscape. Just as iconic church spires pierce the Charleston skyline, so do the cobblestone and brick-clad footpaths that meander through the dense street front of the downtown business center. These iconic alleyways are the connective tissue of the city; often overlooked, they reveal scalar shifts of intimacy, views, and spaces as well as moments of discovery among the dense urban fabric. THE ALLEY brings the traditional footpaths into a community landscape that is genuine and specific to Charleston and its transit needs. Public spaces carve through the landscape of the transit hub heightening senses as the form flows around you creating intimate spatial moments with the building, surrounding city, and passing individuals. Undulating walkways, bike paths, and transit rails weave through the urban plaza to frame historical views of Charleston across the new landscape. The materials of the landscape, whether it is metals and masonry or wood and natural gardens, intertwine to form a natural field condition shaped by the surrounding city, flows of pedestrians, and unique spatial experiences.

Public spaces carve through the landscape of the transit hub creating intimate spatial moments. “Soft-scape” and “hard-scape” intertwine to form a natural field condition shaped by sun patterns, wind conditions, and environmental forces. Undulating walkways, bike paths, and transit rails weave through the urban plaza to frame historical views of Charleston across the new landscape.
