The hive The honeycombs room organization

The hive’s organization masterplan 1:1000 Two scales and two geometries: in the short scale we saw geometric organization (hexagons) such as grid for humans, and in the large scale organic shapes (honeycombs) such as territorial morphologies (creek, topography) for us.

Yellow low vegetations (meadows) against upper dark one (oak, cypress) imply strong contrasts. Lot of perfumed plants.

Hive extension (honeycombs)

Hills are dryer than troughs. Vegetations is also different: oaks, tamarisk, cypress, or heaths.

In trough, we find the most water-requiring plants: eucalyptus trees, or plane trees.

They are many advatages of topographical extrapolation: storm-water management, ecological variations and diversification of landscape’s experiences.

Downtown Palo Alto

Two roads and two architectural influences: spanish mission style (dominant) and streamline modern.

Global longitudinal dominance (St-Adreas) and local transversal dominance (creeks), that bring recurrent floods.

Morphology and water

The idea is to compose with this two scales and two geometries for room organization.

The goal is to emphasize the site to connect organic entities. The grid structures the park as a accident, no more as a dominance.

To swarm - searching for a new place

The “Bee” metaphor as development strategy: between large scale extension and large scale extension.

To build again

The swarms large scale strategy The large scale extension strategy’s goal is to indentify in the territory best places for future swarms. The idea is to enhance a new territorial network, through the NW-SE Belt and the transversal territorial features (Creeks).

To structure

Intensity contrasts

The grid can organize vegetation. Ranges and parkways structure the space and conduct people.

Frank limits define spaces, the contrast is strong.

Immersion

Transition

Disorderly vegetation’s organization mights lost people: just the walk matters.

Olmsted was used to swindle the limit with the succession of plans. It improves transition spaces and variations of intensity.

Meadows and playgrounds

A road in the park

Clearing and meadows are heritage of picturesque style. Today they purpose a huge diversity of uses, particularly for games.

To extend boundaries of the park is the opportunity to absorb the limits due to the transportations lines.

Flows of bees connexions and network’s enhancement To emphasize the park is not enough to link it to the network. Physical (flow) connexions have to be improved. They are many possibilities to cross El Camino and the railway: up, under or at the same level.
