WAPPING WHARF Urban Design Project Vision To regenerate Wapping Wharf to a vibrant, liveable and sustainable community, respecting the culture and assembling with the colourful past, present and future of Bristol.

The Brief Increasingly we can note that cultural activities can be found across a number of boundaries: cultural and creative, commercial and non-commercial, formal and informal economies, and across production and consumption. Wapping Wharf has competitive advantages – arts and cultural museum, diversified activities, abundant remains of history – all contributing to the unique identity to be a cultural hub. It is not only for better living quality, but also allowing Bristol to enjoy economic dimensions of cultural production.

How to Achieve Sustainable Urban Development?

P. 6


Figure and Ground Study Proximity to Green Assets Within Wapping Wharf, there is no green spaces. The nearest large green spaces – Queen’s Square and Dame Emily Park are located in the 400-800m zone from the Wharf.

Proximity to Activities and Culture Mostly, the leisure, art and cultural destinations are to the north of the site. M Shed is a museum located in Wapping Wharf, where people can find out history of Bristol and the Floating Harbour. The River Avon has been connected to Bristol historically and culturally, giving the identity of the place, especially the Floating Harbour. There are a few cultural activities and celebrations, including the heritage trials and annual Bristol Harbour Festival.

Design Evolution 1. The Design divided into passive, transitional and active areas. 2. There are 3 road connections to the site within 200m zone. There is no direct linkage to the northwestern Cannon’s Marsh. 3. Footbridge is proposed to enhance pedestrian permeability form place to place. 4. There is opportunity for the site to become a car free zone whereas current car park pressure could be solve with underground parking.

5. The design seek to enhance pedestrian linkage from Queen’s Square to Southville.

P. 7

6. Bicycle will be promoted as greener mode of transport with more comprehensive track connection within the site and to the surrounding areas.


Programming Social and Environmental Sustainable Cultural linkage The design of the site provide more spaces for cultural activities. Particularly, visitors could follow the ground lights and light sculpture as hints to walk through the M Shed and the serious of Cargo Works to the Gaol Gate, immersing in the fusion of historical buildings and events in the chic modern environment.

Social and Environmental Sustainable Multi-functional Event Spaces The area is especially created a few event spaces to house the abundant diversified social and cultural events all year round in Bristol. During ordinary days, it is relaxing to take a walk. During Festival, all neighbourhoods are welcome to come together here for celebrations and carnivals.

Economically Sustainable The Gaol Gateway Area The design of this area aims to promote cultural investment by generating extra spaces, housing a diversity of leisure, arts and cultural activities. The Cargo Work continue the previous success as a chic dinning and retail space. Whereas, opposite is the 3-storey Arts and Cultural Centres. The first to Third floor situate the theatre, music and craft studios, exhibition halls and co-working spaces for different workshops and events. There is groundfloor shopping and retail area and sky garden. The Gaol Gateway is purposively designed wider with small stadium style seat, encouraging live performances. There is a string of light sculptures in the middle of the Gateway,, making the space more spectacular.

P. 8


Visualisation Vibrant and Liveable Sensation stimulation is the project’s design tactic for creating vibrant and liveable spaces. Light, water and colour are the major elements used to provoke human experiences, especially sight and tactile sensations. The design of the Floating Deck allows people to get in touch with water, as to respect the vibrant history of the Floating Harbour. The design is universal and welcoming for users of all genders, ages and races. In the site people could enjoy different mode activities as they like. Having relaxing time on his or her own in the enclosed garden, having sunbathing together by the harbourside, hanging around the markets with friends or having fun with kids in the playground...All driven by own wishes.

It acts as bioretention pond. This is the key stromwater management strategy to relief flooding risk in Wapping Wharf. The bioretention planting surrounding the pond provides excellent stormwater management. It is able to soak up rainwater and prevent flooding. Meanwhile, habitat for invertebrates can be improved with properly designed bioretention (Kazemi et al., 2009; Mehring et al., 2016).

Cities are organs that work organically. They are born as creatures, support each other,grow and go through a biological process. The elements that make up the city can also be explained through biological analogies. With controlled speed of transportations, the pace of a place can be made. Focusing on the circulation system, we planned the structure of flow with appropriate pace, for the penetration and diffusion of people.

Asakusa is on the north-east fringe of central Tokyo, at the eastern end of the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line Subway, approximately one mile east to the major Ueno Railway/ Subway Interchange. It is central to the area Colloquially as referred to Shitamachi, which is the old part of Tokyo, on the banks of the Sumida River.

Revitalisation of Open Market Space for Vivid Community Life

Conceptual Strategy

The horizontal blocks of stalls are metamorphic tetrominoes, dynamic, with strong virtue bonding interlocking them tightly together, supporting the community with daily necessities and fields of enjoyment lively.

Sustainable Revitalization of Open Market To maximize human comfort and experience Enhance market dynamic Maximize human experience Diversified street stalls enhance market dynamic. New stall system creates vivid streetscape.

Site Analysis

Historical Open Market in Wan Chai It has arisen in the area around Cross street and Tai Yuen Street for more than 80 years, supporting neighbours with daily necessities.

The stalls are lined in opposite and horizontally along streets. Varieties of goods but scattered randomly on streets.

Walkways are narrow. These are particular worse in area between stalls and shophouse front and some only allow one person to pass through. The shops behind are often block be stalls.

Traffic Calming Maximize walkability The open market area can become a pedestrian zone by complete pedestrianize of part of the Spring Garden Lane and Tai Yun Street. The shared roads allow loading and unloading and restriction aligns with market opening hours.

Improve Microclimate Enhance pedestrian thermal comfort at street level

Street Widening and Building Setback Building setback can widen the street which enables channelling of downhill wind to the dense urban area. The widened street also allows roadside planting. The urban heat island effect can be further reduced by the transevaporative cooling of plants.

P. 29

Terrace Podium Design This allow air ventilation without blockage within area of high building volume density cooling of plants.

Creation of Open Space

Street Planting

It functions as “air space� to ensure air ventilation performance of market surroundings.

Street planting can reduce adverse effect caused by turbulence wind.

Green Corridor Enhance biodiversity value of urban niche Roadside planting creates green corridor which connects the urban green spaces with the nearby hillside area. It offers niche, shelter, food and protection allow the urban wildlife to survive and move from hillside to one patch (green space) to another.


Open Market Revitalization Strategy 1. User- Oriented Stall Design

Dynamic shapes of stalls allow best display of goods, creating unique and vivid streetscapes. The stall can serve as chair and desk for the community during off market hours. Together with the roadside planting, semi - enclosure market space can be produced.

2. Categorization of Market Area

This allows better utilization of space and enhances human experience.

Planting Strategy Shared Road Detail (Con’t) 1. Rain Garden Best Stormwater Management

The sunken planting bed allows collection of rainwater runoff. The deep root system enhances microbial biofiltration of water in soil before entering the perforated pipe.

2. Aesthetic Plant Mix This ensures biodiversity for ecological stability . The mix of colour, shape and colour also enhances streetscape aesthetically.

Gravel Layer

It allows water storage and entering into the perforated pipe. P. 31


3. Food and Shelter

Roadside Planting provide food and shelter for wildlife, especially butterfly and birds, throughout the year.

4. Native Trees

Native trees are encouraged at roadside planting for they are more adaptive to local environment and function better in transevaporative cooling.

2. Aesthetic Plant Mix This ensures biodiversity for ecological stability. The mix of colour, shape and colour also enhances streetscape aesthetically.

The podium garden is located in the commercial centre of Hong Kong. It is a place to escape from busy stressful urban life. Urge for shading especially in the afternoon, when workers usually have lunch or tea break, particularly exposure to direct sunlight.

Podium Resting Area Design The Chaotic Earth The Earth is a sphere blended with green and blue systems, dynamic yet chaotic. Fragments of each seem unrelated but through interference they aggregate as a whole, nourishing life.

Design Concept The Earth is a sphere blended with green and blue systems, dynamic yet chaotic. Fragments of each seem unrelated but through interference they aggregate as a whole, nourishing life. There are two systems in the design – inorganic spherical grass balls represent green mountains surrounded the site while the organic bubble cradles represent the blue water system. P. 37

The long seating areas in wavy appearance with height variations to signify wavy propagations from sea, splashing on ground and create bubbles. The bubble cradles are at the area benefited from wind the most, creating psychological illusion of ready to set fly. The lighting design comes from seed germination. As a whole, the design expresses that this is a resting place where we can be nourished and healed from chaotic study life, ready to set fly again and dream high.
