This project explores the fundamental principles of landscape architecture and the development of spatial literacy through an intensified focus on site observation, analysis and representation.

01 - Interpretation Studio Project 2015

The site, Buchanan West Courtyard, is located at UBC vancouver campus. By doing a lot of fieldwork of observation, marking and measuring, the site is interpreted into hand drawings from context to details to gain the awareness of scale, materiality, and spatial feature.

Instructor: Kees Lokman

This project focuses on the development of a conceptual design proposal that connects analysis to design, engages an iterative process, demonstrates layering of vegetation, landform, program and circulation, and reveals the experiential and temporal qualities of the medium of landscape. The Site: Block 51, North Plaza has a rich and layered history. Incorporated as a public square after the opening of Vancouver’s second courthouse in 1912, the square quickly became a well-know civic and ceremonial space. While the plaza has been used for public gatherings and political expression such as the annual 420 Celebrations, and the initial home of the Occupy Vancouver movement, currently, other than random passersby, the site does not host any particular programs or activities.

What Makes A Great Public Plaza?

EDGE ENCLOSURE

To make the North Plaza a new social and cultural heart of Downtown Vancouver, this project explores what makes a great public plaza by doing precedent research about the common features of worldwide successful public plazas. According to precedent studies, three most important components of a great public plaza are: EDGE ENCLOSURE, FOCUS, and CONTINUITY OF EXPERIENCE. This project seeks to meet those three criteria in design.

The design focuses on creating recreational edges to activate the plaza. The green edges provide diverse public spaces along the sidewalks and enclose the central plaza from busy streets. While the edges provide delightful sidewalk experiences, the central space is left blank for public gathering. The opening street corners invite people into the central ceremonial space. The pillaraligning paving pattern underlines the focus of the plaza. The red runing walls become the iconic feature of the plaza and enhance the continuity of experience.

03 - Disappearing Edge Comprehensive Studio Project 2017

The Site: The Plaza of Nations, is situated in the south-east corner of Downtown Vancouver, framed to the North by Pacific Boulevard and the south by False Creek. This area is currently in big transition. As Vancouver’s civic center drifts further eastward, the site will play a significant role as rare public open space, connecting proposed new housing and business developments on its north side to the False Creek waterfront. The plaza is also a pausing node along the seawall running through the site with its pedestrian and bike routes, connecting the site to the downtown and its historic neighbourhoods of Gastown and Chinatown.

VERTICAL STUDIO PROJECT FALL 2017

23

Instructor: Kees Lokman Partner: Nikko Aliasut


The Site: Lulu Island, Richmond Located at the mouth of the Fraser River and situated only one meter above sea level, Richmond faces with severe risk of flooding. To adapt to future flood hazards, this project seeks to explore adaptive strategies and design options that help to improve the coastal resiliency.

04 - The Cyborg Coast Vertical Studio Project 2017

This project involves speculation on how can we recalibrate existing infrastructures and resource flows individually, and as a system, to create co-benefits in that they improve flood management while simultaneously provide water quality, food and energy production or new habitat. With an emphasis on phasing and operations, the goal is to show how the landscape can change from its current condition to a future situation.

Precedent Study: Multifunctional Dikes

04 - The Cyborg Coast Vertical Studio Project 2017

The axonometrics represent multifunctional dikes for both the ocean front and the river edge. The oceanfront dike portrays a beachfront example with active elements like the tide pools and pedestrian boulevard. The river edge dike portrays stormwater management through native planting ditches along the pedestrian paths and a water edge with permeable material to provide conditions habitually for sea vegetation and wildlife corridor beneath.

Precedent Study: Managed Retreat Managed Retreat allows an area at the flood risk to become flooded by removing coastal defense. The axonometrics represent the process of managed retreat. After breaching the existing dike, the argricultural land start to embrace the water. Seasonal flood waters come in and interact with the land in natural ways. Gradually, the land will be shifted into a new typology of landscapes that nourish new opportunities.

Current Protection

27

Richmond’ s current flood protection is the perimeter dike system. Constructed in 1860, the dike system is a landscape feature located on the perimeter of Lulu Island. The dike system forms an extensive flood protection network that works with drainage structures and pump stations to control the flow of groundwater throughout Richmond. However, with increasing threats due to climate change and sea level rise in the coming century, the current dike system may end up in failure. Thus, new adaptation strategies need to be explored.

Proposed Strategy: Protect + Accommodate Given the fact that the current dike systems won’t work for the coming century floods, this project tries to design a new dike system that could provide co-benefits to the adjacent land. The proposed strategy includes two parts: protect and accommodate. The major City and the South Port Industries will be protected by multifunctional dikes, while the agricultural land will be opened for flood discharge.

05 REVITALIZE THE ALR


According to the City's proposal, the major part of ALR (Agricultural Land Reserve) has great possibilities to be inundated in the coming century flood events. This project seeks to design a food-adaptive future for the agricultural land, which would supplement the City's proposal: While the central city of Richmond is protected by fixed dikes, the agricultural land can free itself from flood protection into flood accommodation.

05 - Revitalize the ALR Graduate Project 2018

Located at the mouth of Fraser River, City of Richmond faces severe food risk due to climate change and sea level rise. To cope with the coming century flood, City of Richmond has proposed to enhance the existing perimeter dikes and build up a secondary dike to protect the City Center.

34


The renewal plan revitalizes the agricultural land with new opportunities. The open-up Lulu Canal will activate the adjacent ALR with mixed-uses, i.e. recreation, aquaculture operation, by-product business and port industries.

PHASING

Strategic Planning The main strategy is to open up a Lulu Canal to allow the annual pulses of the Fraser River to sustain a thriving agricultural land that couples aquatic ecosystems production and human occupation. Flood adaptive programs are introduced to the floodable areas to activate the floodplain. And these programs should be ready to shift when permanent flooding occurs. PROGRAM SHIFTING

The proposed Lulu Canal nourishs the existing port industries with aquatic ecosystems productivity and shipping accessibility. Educational and recreational programs are introduced to the port industries to enhance human occupation and enrich the local industrial structures. Aquaculture and agriculture thriving along the canal supplies the inputs for the port industries.
