DESERTATION

INJECTING LOCALISM A symbiosis between the local productive economy and industrial urban economy in Huairou through Agroforestry

project agenda INJECTING LOCALISM TO ATTAIN A SYMBIOTIC URBANISM THROUGHAGROFORESTRY The project initiates a dialogue between the urban industrial economy and the rural villages in Huairou in order to challenge the dichotomy of rural as productive and urban as consumptive through agroforestry and understanding the urban dynamics Huairou is located in the north- east of Beijing occupying an area of 2128.7km 88.7 % of Huairou district is mountainus. Agriculture along with along with orchards and forest lands form the premise of the namesake that Huairou is synonymous with as the “back garden of Beijing” As it lies in an ecological conservation development area in Beijing, Huairou is well known for its beautiful mountains and rivers and its qualified fresh air.it is. one of the top most visited places in Beijing as a holiday destination.

Nature of landscape generated:

After visiting Huairou city which lies in the southern tip of Huairou district it was observed that the city largely remains detached from all these ecological aspects that the district boosts of. Water bodies situated in the rural Huairou is usurped by tourism and second housing culture.Golf courses and theme parks form a sector of the new generators of liesure landscapes within the district. The city is largely dotted with large ornamental landscapes and dry canals which do not engage with the general public at a social or physiological scale. The landuses cripping up in a significant area of the rural Huairou center around second housing baring any local identity or materials but trying to mimic European housing style.

Natural and man- made barriers dividng Hauirou city:

Huairou city consits of 13.3 % of the total district area. It is physically divided owing to some natural and man made barriers in the form of state high ways, railways and dry water channels running north-south that cut across it forming territorial clusters.Presently Huairoi city consists of old city dispersed with urban villages. Industrial and commercial settings are visible owing to decentralization from Beijing primarily “tourist” centric image of Huairou.

Masterplan aims & objectives:

The masterplan proposal aims to structure Huiairou into industry driven clusters with a large green buffer at its core in order to promote the concept of “ the garden city” Post olympics, “Huairou aims to focus on serving the capital. Based on comparative advantages which have formed, Huairou will speed up the gathering of production services, cultural and creative industries with the objective of improving overall core competitiveness and make Huairou a charming and energetic city” as quoted from Mr Zhou’s talk at the 2nd East Asia Bussiness forum. Industies such as Movie moaking, television., fashion, research & development have already starting to take base in urban Huairou with the biggest movie production base of China located here.The focus is purely generating new economy based on market and progress. It investment in the industry starts with 2 billion Yuan and keep going higher from there on. However the is a physical disconnect between the clusters proposed by the masterplan further emphasized due to the introduction of the green buffer which has been known as a measure to control urban sprawl in check in its implementation in central Beijing. Furthermore, it becomes a lost opportu nity and a disregard to the rural villagers income which is solely based on the sale of the agricultural produce. 8

|


Injecting localism: The act of replacing the agriculture within the proposed Huairou city boundary with the green belt disregards the opportunity to the augment the current agricultural practices in Huairou. It is a lost opportunity to ensure that a fare share of the economic advantages due to the oncoming diverse industries goes to the local farmers. The act of overlaying a large scale road network onto a rural town without any intermediary routes suitable for pedestrain movements, small public in teractions and conglomerate spaces will inevitably create a social divide between the present “Huairou” and it future aspirations. Furthermore, the presence of dry canals within the territory is not addressed by the masterplan proposal. With these areas of concern that emerge from the master plan, the project aims to achieve the master planned vision by “Injecting localism” into the notion of development which is generally viewed as “consumptive”.

Phasing of agroforestry

Tree types based on the various needs were selected and its harvest seasons were studied.

All this same analysis was carried out for different industrial areas. With different trees amalgamation used as raw material for that perticular industry.

Locating constructed wetlands

Based on the quantities of waste water generated along these nodes constucted wetlands were located along the riparian infrastructure network. These wetlands would treat the waste water and instrumental in generating a continous habitat. This will re-incterpret the non existence of the dry canals into something which becomes a useful infrastructure for the city.

Agroforestry zone based on shelterbelt sections

A rule was created based on the shelterbelt studies and water requirement for various trees that could be universally applied along the constructed wetland scheme. The existing road and railway network weaving through the site were taken as constraint edges where the transitions would ebb out ranging from zone 1, 2 & 3. These would serve as physiological indicators throughout the journey along the road and railway networks within the city.

Canal branching based on the plot size & branching catalogue

Based on the plot size the canal branching system was devised that would irrigate the zones. The branching would occur at the zone lines in order of decreasing angles to boost the velocity of water as the distance increases. As the zones correspond to the spacing of the trees as well, the number of branches also increases from zone 1 to zone 3.

Water distribution cycle

The same system of distribution is used for collection of waster water system by sloping the two regions in away and towards the constructed wetland respectively. The constructed wetland is divided into three compartments for cleaning different degrees of waste water. The rain water is collected through a system of swales and directly taken to the last chamber which requires minimuim cleaning. The grey water enters the secondary treatment chamber which requires some degree of pre treatment before it can be taken back to the free flowing water. The back water is taken to the settlement pond before it goes to the subsequent treatment and needs to have restrictive human contact.

Servicing agroforestry : Locating the common processing facilities The ratio of the proposed cultivated land to the villages was calculated as per the mas-

terplan. This was then used to generate a universal size of plot that could be served by one household and thus the total village area required to serve 40 km2 of agroforest area.

Mix use diagrammatic sections

With the aim of acheiving a balance between the agroforestry and the urban functions, a series of sections were generated based on the permatio biltiy of the agroforestry and its interaction with the urba form. This generated a variation in density depending on the location and type of function.

Phase one : Areas neareast to main infrastructure & market location are developed in first phase. These typically include agroforestry industries, markets, high dense to low dense housing

Phase two : Areas farther from the main infrastructure & commerce are market are developed in

the second phase. These typically include medium to low dense housing , hutong conservation zones etc. Partially agroforestry is taken over by this development as the economy of the farmers is diversifies further based on the main stream agroforestry.

Phase three: Area farther from the urban core & commerce are developed in the final phase. These typically include low dense housing , hutong conservation zones etc. Agroforestry takes a definitive form in this phase creating pedestrian connections with the agroforestry bleeding into the rest of the urban development.

Location : Huairou Is Located in North of Beijing Area: Huairou District, covering an area of 2,557.3 square kilometers, 90% of it is mountain area Population: 296,002 (2000 Census) Major agricultural Products: Its major agricultural products are chestnuts, walnuts, hawthorns, sweet pears, and apricots. Water infrastructure: Huairou District is known for being one of the most important water sources in the capital city earmarked for protection. According to the report the change condition of the Chaobai river has reduced from 12%, water quantity has decreased to 41% As 69% of the area is forest is also called the oxygen bar of Beijing Weather: Huairou District, the case of the warm temperate semi-humid climate with four distinct seasons, rain and heat in the same period and humid in the summer, cold winters and less snow. Annual sunshine hours is about 2800 hours, the average annual temperature of 9 to 13 degrees Celsius, the frost-free period is about 170 to 200 days, the average annual rainfall of 600 to 700 mm, mainly concentrated in the June to August. Huairou, located in the capital of drinking water source protection areas, four more than 17 rivers of the territory, the size of the reservoir 22, the spring 774, the annual total water resources of 860 million cubic meters, accounting for the total water resources in Beijing / 5, surface water quality meet the national stand ards. The city center of the Huairou District includes a lake with a walking trail and bike trail for recreation. At the top of the trail there is a pagoda overlook ing the lake. Huairou District lies about 20 kilometers from a portion of the Great Wall of China. The portion of the wall is labeled as “The Great Wall at Mutianyu.� Another tourist attraction is Hong Luo Mountain on which the Hong Luo Temple is located.

PEACE CENTRE AT WAGAH BORDER INTRODUCTION HISTORY History is what we learn. The future is what we make of it. The partition of India and Pakistan for millions of Indians remains most traumatic chapter in living memory, six decades has not helped to heal it. One of the main reasons is the ugly sine held during the partition. And another reason is religion beliefs. And as the time passed this haterate become so intense that now both cannot accept each other in any case and has given rise to such suspicion that if anything happens in any of the country they point first to each other for that.

BREAKING TROUGH HISTORY History is what we learn. The future is what we make of it. The partition of India and Pakistan for millions of Indians remains most traumatic chapter in living memory, six decades has not helped to heal it. One of the main reasons is the ugly sine held during the partition. And another reason is religion beliefs. And as the time passed this haterate become so intense that now both cannot accept each other in any case and has given rise to such suspicion that if anything happens in any of the country they point first to each other for that.

STATISTIAL DATA ANALYSIS OF PEOPLE SUPPORT FOR PEACE Aman ki asha polled people in six Indian cities and eight Pakistan’ cities about 66% Indian and 72% Pakistani desire peace between two country. Only 17% India and 8% in Pakistan opposed the idea. And 59% Indian and 64% Pakistanis believe peace can be possible Can people to people initiatives.

IDEOLOGY OF THIS CENTRE

PEOPLE TO PEOPLE INITIATIVE Main motto of this centre would be that the people on both the side realise that what they have done in past was wrong. So this centre is a platform to bring in two people and their lost cultures. And remove the suspicion.

26

|

Different fields, trade, people, and profession can contribute to Aman ki asha some of the examples are. 1) I would mention warsi food from Karachi in trade fair in Delhi was matchless. 2) Veteran Indian designer ritukumar opened a store in Karachi and Pakistani designer honey waqar was sent to India as fashion ambassador. 3) A Cineplex in Karachi is showing 3idiots. Most of the people in Pakistan love Indian movies. Bollywood has also became a platform for many Pakistani musicians like Rahat fate Ali khan, strings etc If all of these people big or small from all the fields can contribute for Aman ki asha . Can we architects make a humble effort to design a memorial for Aman ki asha campaign.


MEDITATION HALL/CENTRE The people coming to this place experience the meaning of peace and oneness . Peace is necessary to break the barrier or border which was built by the people themselves between India and Pakistan.

AMPHITHEATER & AUDITORIUM Stage to perform the cultural activities like some music concerts then dance and many other. They should be seeking the lost culture that they have lost after partition the culture both countries were sharing.

TEMPLE & MOSQUE A temple and mosque are given so that people could feel homely and where both the culture are equally treated and given importance.

MUSEUM Museum is to bring back the history how people used to live before partition as one country on the world map. How they fight for the freedom .The bonding of the leaders the great Gandhiji and Jinnah .The display of the partition war to show people that there was no ones profit in that wars.

CAFETERIA Both countries are famous for their delicacy. If we observe the taste of both the countries is almost same and they use most of the same spices .In India some spices do come from the other side and the space created for some of the finest gourmet should be such that even while eating the people should feel the power of that place and peace through their mouth.

FESTIVE GROUND PLAZA FOR INFORMAL GATHRING

Wagah is the only road border crossing between India and Pakistan, and lies on the Grand Trunk Road between the cities of Amritsar, India and Lahore, Pakistan. At a distance of appox 30 km from both the cities and appox 500km from Delhi. For the past 60 years since independence in 1947, porters have been carrying goods across the Wagah border, before the opening of Srinagar–Muzaffarabad Bus in 1999. On August 14–15, 2001, the respective Independence days of Pakistan and India, the candle-lighting ceremony is held participated by 50,000 people from both nation.

•The main idea was to create a visual impact on the people visiting the centre •Thus the stand was taken to create a form base structure. Now the architecture should not be bias for any one religion it should be like fusion or totally new in its form. •As per the concept there should be symmetry in the structure on both the sides. •So there was an idea of two forces coming and merging at a central space called the plaza of peace.

MANAV SADHNA ACTIVITY CENTRE The campus is built as a live demonstration for the application of recycled waste as affordable, aesthetically pleasing and efficient building components. The products developed for this project, which incorporate municipal/domestic waste and are prepared with simple hand operated tools, are demonstrated in the walls, roofs/slabs, doors and windows. There are six types of materials and techniques used in the making of the walls. These include: cement bonded flyash bricks, mould-compressed bricks made from landfill site waste residue, stabilized soil blocks, recycled glass bottles, recycled plastic bottles filled with ash and waste residue, and vegetable crate wood paneling in the inner partition walls. Similarly the floor and roof slabs as applied in the activity centre include: filler slab with glass bottles, plastic bottles and bricks, stone slab, cement bonded particle board with clay tile cover, as well as light conduit pipe truss with G.I. sheet with clay tile roof. The door paneling uses shredded packaging wrapper and coated paper waste as reinforcement substitute for fiber reinforced plastic (FRP). Vegetable crate wood as a frame and oil tin container as blades make the ventilation louvers in the toilets. A paneled door using vegetable crate wood and oil tin containers for the frame and cladding respectively is also provided in the administrative block office toilet. Flyash and waste residue moulded tiles with inlaid ceramic industry waste as china mosaic (applied during tile moulding itself) is also applied in patches for their demonstration. All of these products are developed and produced first hand. The products thus produced have been lab tested for their engineered performance and they prove to be economical, environmentally friendly, participatory and aesthetically pleasing solutions and express alternatives to contemporary practices.

FACT FILE Project Cost :Rs. 31 Lakh with Landscape and Interiors Site area :1100 sq.mts Total Built -up Area :515 Sq.mts.+ 438 Sq.mts Plinth Area Conception / Completion :2005 January / 2006 December

CONTEXT

Nearly 27.4 million tonnes of waste is produced daily in the urban centers of India. Cities like Ahmedabad alone produce 2750 metric tonnes. Unfortunately nothing really gets processed of the same. This waste is simply dumped openly in the landfill sites, which uses enormous volumes of fossil fuel, creating an altered, polluted, unsafe and unhealthy landscape. Can the building industry not learn from these applications? An activity centre at Rama Pir Tekra, Wadaj in Ahmedabad has been one small attempt in the direction of recycling municipal/domestic waste into building materials. The activity centre is located amidst the largest squatter settlement of Ahmedabad, and was created under the initiative of the social NGO, Manav Sadhna. The multi-purpose activity centre serves as an informal school for young children, provides evening education for adults and serves as a training centre and activity workshop for the manufacturing of craft based products by women and elderly. The campus also includes a dormitory, an administrative unit and an all-religion meditation unit. The campus is built using components prepared through recycling municipal/domestic waste. This process simultaneously addresses environmental concerns, economic issues and affordable housing; As municipal waste from the domestic sector is used for producing building components, it helps to reduce waste as pollution. Through value addition processes of recycling the waste, it provides a means of economic activity for the poor as well as a sense of empowerment. Finally as the recycled building components are cheaper and of higher quality than the conventional materials, they provide affordable and superior quality building alternatives for the urban poor.

FREELANCE INTERIOR DESIGN FOR APPERAL STORE

In this exercise, we were supposed to design an apparel & accessories showroom in a mall in our city. We were to experiment with the material & forms, after analysis of the functions & needs of the client. As my concept was to create a barrier free open space and for that I have used steel and wood for display and partition. The curvilinear form of these 2 innovative materials gives a unique feel to this place, thus attracting customers. The light also focuses along the racks to create shadow in the movement area. Thus creating an interesting play.

TOWN CENTRE AT MANDVI, SOUTH GUJARAT This project was an urban insert project: A town centre to be built in Mandvi town. This administrative hub was proposed by us as this fast developing town needed a proper facility for its offices. This centre is to include the following: Taluka panchayat, nagar palika, mamlatdar, tasp, general administration , civic centre, forest department, public dept, fire station, auditorium & other public spaces.

MANDVI TOWN PLAN main office activity

The site is located on the banks of the river tapi, at the end of the main spine of Mandvi town

recreational area

INITIAL IDEA

main office activity

To create a space according to the immediate context of the site, i.e. the natural organic arrangement of the blocks creating an open space within a cluster.

site organization diagrams and option according to site analysis and programme of the project given. 40

|


Concept

As shown in the above diagram the old city of mandvi has a peculiarity to develop courts between the groups of houses at the cluster level. As seen in the cluster level i have tried to bring in the essence of that court into my organization of the building. And for that as we see stage wise there is taken a simple method of subtraction (scooping out) from a solid mass geometry Immediate context Over all if we see then the site is surrounded by residential area. Then on the northern side is the main gavrav path road of mandvi also known as the main spin of the city. On the east side is the garden which further leads to owara. As we see the skyline around the site it’s very low Site topography According to site topography the slop is going away from the river. So the water will flow towards the road and cannot be used so if we provide some water collecter near the road the water of the whole site could be used for water harvesting. And by providing channels soil errosion could be stopped. river. So the water will flow towards the road and cannot be used so if we provide some water collector near the road the water of the whole site could be used for water harvesting. And by providing channels soil erosion could be stopped.

SCIENCE CENTRE, SURAT The site was at a major junction of the Surat city beside the canal. The immediate context of the site is housing and institutional buildings like schools and colleges.

CONCEPT Here the concept came up by creating a form which can stand out at the junction of the three roads . So by studying the forms and relating it with the science i came up with the structure which was inspired by amoeba. which will look like a fluid form. The grey area are the functions, they are arranged according to the fluidity of circulation.

interlocking of the spaces shown in section, and how to bring in the natural light by creating a court in between two spaces. Moulding the outer skin of the centre according to the spatial organisation of the inner activities. Some of the roof sections and options carried out like the floating roof with mushroom columns. Sketch showing the recreational space opening towards the road. the building opens up into a semi-open space with a water body with a water screan from the roof .

LOW-COST HOUSING AIM: To study Iqbal Nagar [selected slum] and analyze the problems related to slums in urban areas and present a solution, most conducive, to the same, be it relocation or rehabilitation and to give proper guidelines for their future development. To take inferences from the study and deriving the best design solution to slum problem by providing adequate and appropriate shelter and basic infrastructure facilities to the slum dwellers of the identified urban areas.

Creating Central Green spaces at various levels - inside the cluster, between the clusters and in the centre. Small shops by the main road will help the inhabitants to start small business

Here interaction between the inhabitants is enhanced & various open spaces serve this purpose A unique CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL , made from concrete & reusable fibers, is used in this project. It is cheap & environment friendly.

The prototype dwelling gives the dwellers an opportunity to utilize these spaces as they seem fit. Thus, ceating a strong sense of identity which makes each building unique & distinct.

Land shared with the Private Sector - one of the finance aids to this project

MANDVI TOWN [STUDY AND ANALYSIS] The Town of Mandvi has developed by the banks of river Tapi, North-East of Surat city. It is one of the 9 talukas of Surat district; AThe headquarters & a Self-sufficient town in most aspects. Demographics of Mandvi: Total Area = 731 sq. km. of Town + Tribal area. No. of households= 37706; Rural population= 168,458; Urban popu.= 17,453 The town has developed organically over a long period of time since 1650 A.D. as it was a capital. Mandvi is a commercial town & various crops like cotton , french beans, etc come here for processing. Also, the businesses in Mandvi are linked to various cities in Gujarat, mahrashtra & Madhya Pradesh. Mandvi has developed organically from the centre, which is a Jain temple & the market, towards the Sate Highway 6 which encircles it. I was a part of the study, which included City Form & Block Studies, where my major contribution was towards analysis and presentation. Here presented is only my work.

LANDSCAPE COMPETITION

It is a very busy and dense place under the pressure of several activities. The original character of the open space has diminished and the whole space is used up by new functions. Presence of a major link (Nehru bridge) to the other part of the city further increases the pressure on the area. Due to this the entire space is dominated by vehicles. The physical envelopes reflect the history of the place, as various structures have come up in various periods. Where the castle is the oldest one made out of stone. N.M. Institutes for nurses, Sorbajis training college, Saint Adrews library are constructed out of brick and wood. The various structures which include the castle made of stones is the oldest of all. N.M. Institute of nurses, Sorabji training college, St. Andrew’s library are other historical monuments adding to the physical envelope of the Chowk area. Further more there is a weekly market which is held over here.

In the present scenario, the area encourages many activities throughout the day. The castle houses various government offices including collector’s office, central excise office, customs department, mahiti Kendra, etc. There are various other institutional buildings around namely the institute for nurses, Samaj Shikshan Bhavan, Sorabji training college and the Andrew’s library.

AIM...

Revitalizing the significance of urban open space, associating the users and built form (public chowk) in context with the city.

SITE SELECTION...

For making this kind of intervention we would like to take up chowk area of surat, which was once the core and major node of all activities for people. This area is rich in culture, history of varied times, and is major node for going to all major spines in surat. Site has various layers of timely activities which creating a pressure on the adjacent context though giving essence and value.

issues... A chaotic environment is created due to the existing commercial activities on the site. The vehicular and pedestrian movement have not been clearly defined which in turn causes irregular and organic developments. The activities happening in the immediate surroundings of the historic monuments have no relation to the context thus leading to the loss of importance of their mere existence. In short, the monuments have failed to transform to meet the present demands. The street elevation along the city square depicts that buildings surrounding the monuments show signs of irrelevant development. Even the street furniture, like the hoardings have been put in wrong locations, wherein they block the view of the monument.

Andrew’s library

St. Andrew’s library, built in 1850, since then used as library.

Fort (Killa)

J.J. training institute

Public squares or public chowks is the most recognizable and traditional civic form of public spaces.

Therefore, having invested in time, the spaces change, rendering them vital, vibrant and dynamic. This constant juxtaposition of time over space is the essential premise giving life to chowks . At any given time different spaces render themselves differently for an obvious reason , physicality. likewise the same physical space transforms drastically through its interaction with time.

Most civic squares, were conceived of as an open area of hard landscaping. They are traditional spaces for civic celebration and demonstration. The idea is to give a pause in the existing historic fabric, along with the hustle and bustle of timely activities by creating a public open space for relaxation through association between the physicality and the user. Giving porosity to the edges of the chowk so that they can communicate with the user in accordance with time.

Relaxation can be given through flowing lines, pleasant and comfortable shades, cool shades, colours, curvilinear forms.

EDGES.....

The edge near the bus terminal has been organized to provide better platform for the autoricshaws. Also the edge along the J.J. Training institute has been designed to make the building more porous to its surrounding. The edge along the Andrew’s library has been provided with seating which would encourage people to interact with each other as well as with the library adjoining it.

“the city square can provide visual relief and recreational open space within a densely developed area, and can also serve to promote standards in public behavior. If people are to be aware of complexity and variety of the society they are part of , and if they are to appreciate notions of civic identity and respect for others , there must be a place where they can occasionally see and experience a diverse cross section of that society … By simply standing in a lively public square, where different age group and different members of society are gathered together, there is a shared experience that evokes a positive sense of participation” Nick corbett

THE IMPACT... STEPS.....

The steps are provided all along the curve defining the movement. These steps are inviting and multi-functional, which could be used for sitting as well.

Owing to the following intervensions, the haphazard activities would get organize which would inturn release the pressure on the Chowk area. Furthermore, it would attract the youngsters and help them to relate to their tradition and culture. Also the dead structures would become live and would start interacting with the context.
