RAMENKI A place-making approach that is eclectic, contextual and rich, creating “otherness” - a place apart suitable to the site’s exclusive location. This landscape-led masterplan uses urban topography [landscape, nature, and buildings] to heighten the drama and reveal the natural beauty of the site. River systems disrupt the prevailing urban structures in cities, creating distinctive and memorable places. The landscape sits as a series of valleys and spaces around which settlements gather, pulling the qualities of the Dacha experience into the heart of the city. A continuous promenade on the eastern edge allows people to enjoy the prospect over the valley. A series of greenways connect internal parts of the development with the promenade. Serial views from all parts of the site are conceived as set pieces that reveal hidden treasures: bridges, terraces, Spanish steps, sculptures.

The project strategy takes a green infrastructure approach, employing landscape as a multifunctional resource to deliver ecological services and quality of life benefits while respecting and enhancing the distinctiveness of the site. The project involved an international team of architects and planners: KCAP Architects, Buro Happold engineering, and Systematica transport infrastructure.

SOUTHALL GAS WORKS Competition for the revision of a 2008 masterplan, providing fresh analysis and a framework with identity and place. Located between the Great Western Railway and Southall station, the site will become a stop on the Crossrail line in 2019. This will create rapid connectivity to central London and represents the fast pace of modern life. In the meantime the isolated site of the gasworks has an opportunity to become characterized by the timeless, slow-moving waterways and natural open space which represent the more contemplative aspect of life. Too often, city living allows for the first without considering the second and a model sustainable community must accommodate both to become part of the fabric of our lives. The vision is therefore for a City Garden bringing cultural and environmental wellbeing for its citizens.

CHATHAM PLACEMAKING PROJECT

EXCERPTS FROM CHATHAM PLACEMAKING MASTERPLAN (RIBA STAGE 2) Analysis: Connectivity

Establishing a powerful and distinctive identity for Chatham. LDA’s Placemaking Masterplan proposed strategic interventions for implementation throughout the town centre, providing clear destination and orientation points for the community and visitors. Each part of the sequence from the railway station to the civic space has its own particular problems requiring its own tactics. Like many historic locations, a sequence of connected points is used as the means to create a purposeful journey. Enhancements focus on creating clear connections, clear edges, and allocating space more emphatically to pedestrians. Four of the proposed interventions are now being delivered on site. LDA collaborated with artist Chris Tipping to embed history and social memory and draw out a sense of place at each site.

Central paving feature - bespoke transition units


The design places a garden at the heart of the One Axis Square development. The central green space anchors the buildings and provides a human scaled pedestrian space.

AXIS SQUARE BIRMINGHAM A publicly accessible open space associated with a new development located in close proximity to the city centre. One Axis Square has great potential to become not just a welcoming landscape for the development, but a green space for the surrounding area. The landscape achieves cohesive amenity space between and around new buildings. It increases areas of public realm which provide visual connection and legible pedestrian links to adjacent destinations. All-inclusive access and pedestrian priority routes are prioritised. Southfacing slopes provide an important landscape amenity for workers and visitors. Varied tree and garden planting provide seasonal interest and increase biodiversity. The scheme provides 98 new trees and 7,752 sqm of green space.

FIRM: LDA Design LOCATION: Birmingham, UK ROLE: Planning; Design & Access Statement DESIGN STAGES: RIBA Stages 2 - 3

Paving articulation on the ground builds on the geometry created by the buildings. The square motif emphasizes the garden focal point, guiding pedestrians to the central plaza. Concept Diagram

Illustrative view of full build-out scheme: A lush garden on a raised patio sits in the centre of the plaza space.

Interim landscape section: Grade change is absorbed in soft landscape, creating an upper tier of parking and a lower tier focal point with new public realm interventions.


Existing site with central building

Construction plan with parking provision & building access

Interim plan with temporary landscape

Full build-out scheme

The design creates three usable platforms, with the garden occupying the central platform of the space. The upper platform provides access to the building frontages. The central garden sits on a level plane which can be accessed either by a 1:21 graded route or directly by steps. 23


ALPERTON STATION PUBLIC REALM One of ten pilot London Underground station upgrades proposed by TfL LDA Design worked with Transport for London and the London Borough of Brent to design and deliver a new public space that links three strategically important projects – the Alperton Station London Underground station, a new residential development of 1,600 homes, and the redevelopment of the Alperton Community School – transforming the station and street to create an attractive new civic focus and communal heart for the neighbourhood. This project is an exciting opportunity to create a new heart for a west London neighbourhood as well as to set a standard for the revitalisation of the public realm for London Underground stations. Following the release of the public realm masterplan, LDA developed the station forecourt design to RIBA Stage 4.

Key features of the masterplan: 1. More generous, clutter- free public realm in front of Alperton Underground Station and Alperton Community School. 2. Better relationship between the school and Ealing Road and the school will be better integrated into its surroundings. 3. Significantly widened footway along Ealing Road. 4. Generous new zebra crossing. 5. Main school entrance aligns with new zebra crossing to prevent informal and dangerous street crossings.

6. New raised crossing across Atlip Road. 7. Hard landscape in front of the school creates space for students waiting for buses while allowing other pedestrians plenty of space to come and go. It also lends itself to local markets, seasonal events, and festivals. 8. Shallow tiered seating steps along the school frontage provide informal seating for pedestrians and establish the boundary of the new civic area. 9. Lay-bys on the northwest and northeast sides of Ealing Road are expanded to ease traffic congestion.

WEST BAY CITY GATE PARK Design of a 1.8ha park along the prestigious Corniche seafront in Doha, Qatar. The new park is situated at the entry to West Bay Downtown. The site will become a feature of prominence, requiring a prominent venue synonymous with its position as an iconic destination. LDA is working in association with Hyder, Doha to deliver a detailed hard and soft landscape scheme.

BURGESS PARK REVIEW One of the largest public parks in South London and the largest in the borough of Southwark. In 2009 LDA Design developed a long term masterplan for the park. This plan evolved through consultation with local communities and stakeholders helped to prioritise initial spend. Five years on from the creation of the original masterplan, LDA Design were again appointed by Southwark to review the original plan comparatively against what has been implemented to date, understand reasons for change, and consider future use, emerging demands and management. This culminated in a revised masterplan and recommendations for future investment, a sampling of which are illustrated here.

GREENWICH PARK REVEALED

AREA 1: GIANT STEPS & CASTLE HILL (Initial options studies for costing purposes)

Landscape proposals for a Heritage Lottery Fund Bid with The Royal Parks. Castle Hill and the Wolfe Statue viewing area are the iconic focal point of Greenwich Park and form significant components of the World Heritage Site. The area around the statue is popular with visitors to the Royal Observatory and with those enjoying the panoramic view. Such heavy footfall leads to severe erosion and soil compaction. Formed in 1661, the Grand Axis at the Giant Steps formally linked the Queen’s House with the park. The ornamental landform has since been severely eroded.

Existing: Eroded hillside and vegetation obscuring Flamsteed House

Proposed: Restored Giant Steps and selective clearance of Castle Hill to reveal Flamsteed

The site is composed of three areas: a landform, a species rich lawn, and a floriferous perennial mix at a new pedestrian entrance. The introduction of a planar landform creates a landscape character that reflects the design language used through the wider parkland. The design adopts a sustainable approach to retaining excess low quality soil within the site.

LANCASTER UNIVERSITY

LAKE DISTRICT NATIONAL PARK

LAKE DISTRICT NATIONAL PARK

3 month design competition delivering a vision for the redevelopment of the Lancaster University Management School (LUMS) The Management School has ambitious strategic plans to become a globally significant university and requires a setting that reflects this ambition. The concept “From Context Into Content” takes inspiration from the fantastic campus setting in close proximity to the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks.

SEA LEVEL RISE, CITY OF BOSTON Intensive two-week design charette investigating what it means to be a resilient coastal city in the era of climate change and rising seas. Inter-disciplinary intern team studied a series of vulnerable systems in Boston. Through a twoweek analysis process, interns identified key factors of each vulnerable system that are threatened by sea level rise and storm surge. Interns then visualized design strategies for how the city can live with water.

Waste Water Vulnerability Map

Waste water systems are especially vulnerable to storm surges and coastal flooding. Treatment plants are placed in low-lying areas, usually near water, so that sewage can be piped via gravity. Compounding this inherent risk, the system consists of expansive underground labryinths of pipes, holding tanks, and pumps that can remain waterlogged long after floodwaters recede.

BUSSEY SEEP INTERN PROJECT A two weeklong landscape management project around a seasonal pond Bussey Seep is a seasonal pond in that overflows during large storm events, damaging a worldrenowned lilac collection to the north and washing out a stone dust road to the south. I was elected Project Manager for a construction project mitigating the stormwater runoff issues as well as invasive vegetation problems. I managed a construction crew and a vegetation crew, and participated in both. Two 3 foot berms were constructed at the northern and southern extremities to increase the pond’s holding capacity. The berms function as secondary retention ponds during extreme storm events. Invasive plants (rubus, celastrus orbiculatus, rosa multifl ora, burdock) and trees (euonymous, carya, autumn olive) were removed around the immediate seep and western slope. Accessioned plants were evaluated and pruned. LOCATION: Arnold Arboretum ROLE: Project Manager

Spanning between modern-day Montreal and the legacy of Expo 67, the site is a literal and metaphorical bridge between the two. Grounded emulates the experiential progression of Expo 67 through tactile gestures on the ground as well as density and arrangement of vegetation and structures. Remnant agricultural patterns (seigneurie “long lots”) provide a framework for structuring the ground plane through vegetation, texture, pacing, programming, and framed views. The seignurie lots are reinterpreted as shifting rectangular bars and are arrayed across the site perpendicular to the path of the visitor, always orienting toward the water. In this regard they retain their original purpose of ensuring maximum access to the riverfront. They simultaneously provide a narrative of moving through space that registers Montreal’s history.

OPTICS and RHYTHM: Re-inscribing some of the choreography and spatial experiments of Expo 67, the project orchestrates a rhythm and curates the experience of a musical score through moments of increased and decreased intensity.

Water activities: A connection brings people down from the pedestrian plaza to reconnect with the water.

Grand gesture: A continuous folded landform lifts up to the bridge and out to the water above a new ferry dock, expanding the language of the corten industrial design elements to a bolder scale. This move emphasizes connectivity to the Expo 67 site and to Montreal by projecting people onto both sides of the peninsula.

Re-thinking Boston’s oyster culture Aquaplot uses discarded oyster shells from local restaurants to sustain oyster reefs and re-establish a healthy harbor ecosystem. It accomplishes this by establishing a citywide oyster gardening program that closes the oyster waste stream, restores native oyster reefs, improves local water quality, and reconnects the people of Boston with their waterfront.

Oysters are relevant to the economy of the city and represent a local heritage that people are proud of. While Boston is known for its shellfish, however, it is not performing well with shell recycling. Within this broken cycle lies an opportunity for the Boston to address two key problems: wasted shells and oyster reef decline. While there are numerous productive uses for discarded oyster shell, the best use by far is as reef substrate to grow juvenile oysters. The link between the two problems presents an exciting opportunity to propose a better system.

SEDIMENT CITY: JAMAICA BAY “SEDIMENT CITY: Re-Appropriating Dredge Material for Urban Development� Dredging continually occurs in the New York and New Jersey Harbor, and has increased to accommodate a new class of Post-Panamax ship. On average 4,731,815 cubic meters of material is dredged from the harbor each year. Sediment City uses this dredge on site to raise the elevation of land in anticipation of increased storm frequency and sea level rise. A barrier island archipelago acts as a wave attenuator to protect urban growth. The islands provide a striking visual registration of the volume of dredge material originating in the harbor that is being wasted in landfills. The urban fabric is based on the Brooklyn city block, but the linearity of the grid morphs in response to the new peninsulas. Building massing is designed to maximize the amount of public space. Waterways and inlets play a critical role mitigating storm surge and flooding. HARVARD GSD INSTRUCTOR: Chris Reed LOCATION: Brooklyn, NY DATE: Spring 2013 COLLABORATOR: Michele Richmond

The industrial, commercial, and municipal sectors of New England produce large quantities and a wide variety of waste materials, most of which are discarded by landfilling. This project proposes to harness these industrial outflows and repurpose them as soil amendments to the nutrient-poor earth found on the Massachusetts Military Reserve (MMR).

In order to become an industrial-scale soil manufacturing and rehabilitation site, the MMR must maximize regional waste-stream recycling and, in the process, become an innovative regional facility. The critical node of this development is the Otis airfield runway, re-purposed through stockpiling, storage, loading and operational currents. Further, by re-establishing railway connection to the densest region in the country, the MMR positions itself as a new center.

Materials are stockpiled in locations across the site depending on their physical properties and storage needs. Soil is excavated, biomass crops are grown, and inputs are mixed into new blends through processes of accumulation. The blends are either exported to urban centers for profit or applied on-site to further the demands of military research and testing.

If this enterprise did not occur, the MMR would most likely be subdivided by developers into residential units, continuing the trend that can be seen across the region: over 16,000 acres of open space is developed and lost in Massachusetts each year. This proposal offers a vast amount of new open space to the public. A portion of the funding generated through the soil manufacturing process is dedicated to maintaining the safety and accessibility of a visitors center, market area, and public trail network.

ROUTE MAPS WILD URBAN FARMACY

ROUTE MAPS

An exploration of urban foraging and neglected medicinals Cities are often thought of as ecological wastelands, where only the most undesirable plants survive. This book challenged that notion and looks instead at the productive possibilities of emergent ecologies, particularly as a source of medicinal plants. Growing conditions in urban areas don’t resemble what they were originally due to disturbance, competition, and habitat stress. Large numbers of nonnative species have out-performed native species and created new plant associations and communities that can be considered novel,ecosystems. This report examines the intersection of wild urban plants and medicinal plants, and demonstrates their abundance and potential applications by explaining traditional and modern uses. In applying a value judgment and deeming something “weedy,” we increase the division between nature and culture and overlook a rich history of human use. LOCATION: Somerville, MA DATE: Fall 2013 COLLABORATOR: Cali Pfaff

METHODOLOGY

1. IDENTIFY Through the counsel of local herbalists, wild urban plants expert and ecologist Peter del Tredici, and relevant publications and web resources, we generated a preliminary list of plants with medicinal value that can be found and cultivated in cities. We then classified these plants by their medicinal use, growth cycle, botanical details, and location of origin.

3. DOCUMENT 2. COLLECT Through fieldwork and targeted exploration, we foraged for herbs, bark, and roots in and around the Cambridge and Somerville areas.

After visiting selected sites in Cambridge and Somerville, we dried, pressed, and scanned field samples. We then identified each plant and determined whether or not it has medicinal applications. We then researched each plant’s history from its date of importation into the U.S. to present day.

4. SHARE After assessing our final collections, we selected twenty-two plants to feature in this booklet, based on both their abundance in the area and their medicinal use.

ACEQUIA LANDSCAPES “Food Security & Resilience: Reclaiming the Acequia Landscapes of New Mexico” Harvard GSD Penny White Project Award 2013 Acequias are engineered canals that carry snow runoff and river water to distant fields. Acequias have been used to manage and conserve scarce water resources for over 400 years, but today acequia landscapes are rapidly being abandoned due to population growth, expanding urban centers, and a shift from farming to salaried employment. Despite these changes, acequia farmland and water rights are increasingly serving as the foundation for rebuilding local food systems and boosting the rural economy. This paper examined how traditional farming methods manifest in today’s context by comparing three sites in Pecos, Taos, and Embudo. It revealed the characteristics of acequia irrigation technology, the cultural practices and values associated with acequia irrigation farming, and the unique landscapes that result.

Many of Boston’s urban wilds are unprotected and subject to loss from commercial, institutional or residential development. In this context, Bussey Brook Meadow offers an opportunity to study the processes of nature as it re-appropriates and rehabilitates land that has been degraded by industrial and urban development.

While these neglected landscapes are often referred to as “wastelands,” they provide important ecological services such as promoting urban biodiversity, absorbing excess nutrients in wetlands, controlling erosion and building soil on degraded land.
