FLUCTUATING TERRITORIES Managing the flood terrains of South Holland, IL “Fluctuating Territories” is a descriptive reflection of the flooding conditions of South Holland in Illinois. During rainy seasons, water level rises and during dry seasons, water level lowers. However, the current landscape of many neighborhoods do not accommodate to this “fluctuation”. To tackle this problem, our team has proposed to manipulate the landscape on a topographic level, at a neighborhood scale at a location called “Thorn Ditch”. In addition, we will also introduce new layers of programming and ecology. The resulting landscape will then be multi-functional and temporal: for instance, creating a stepped garden that will hold rainwater during the monsoon season, as well as serve as an ecological entity during non-monsoon seasons. The garden will also help purify rainwater through phyto-remediation.

This project was completed in a team of 4. 1

PRESERVE THE HOMESTEAD Creating a community park in the centre of Industrial Sheffield, England “The car has reshaped the nation’s landscape, making it virtually unrecognizable from the unpaved version of the previous century.� This mix-use development is a community park space that is located in the centre of the industrial park of Sheffield, England. All materials in the proposal are intended to be sourced locally The proposed park is intended to link with the Theatre Deli, a small local theater that is within the vicinity, by dedicating an oval shaped ground to be used as an outdoor stage or classroom. There is also another larger oval shaped ground to be used for a Fitness are to be filled with exercising equipment. Another ground of similar shape is located further south, and it is to be used as a Zen garden. A new river stream is also introduced to replace the old one, one that was unclean, overcrowded with weeds and it served little ecological function. New elements to be designed include a bridge and gabion walls to maintain the water levels. Native planting will also make its way to the river and throughout the park. The park will offer many layers of activity and direct the local people to use this park.

This project was completed in a team of 3. 19


INTERVENTION

Green Space

Currently, the major hard surface in the site is taken by cars. However, this car park can be relocated to make more space for the people, cyclists and ecology. The space required to accommodate automobiles when not in use is substantial. If more space were allocated to walking pedestrians and cylists, along with a intervention of new programs and activities, the wellbeing of these communities - both the young and the old, will be improved significantly. The proposed intervention will take away the car park, and allocate 3 community engagement spaces that include a fitness area, an outdoor performance area and a Zen garden, along with the extension of the riverstream and the green space. On top of that, 15 additional trees will be added to the site to increase the density of the softscape so as to promote biodiveristy and ecology. The fitness area is dedicated to the younger community; the outdoor performance area is dedicated to the functions of Theatre Deli, for outdoor activities, performances or public events; and lastly the Zen Garden is dedicated to to the older community, for resting and relaxation. Only cheap and recycled materials like old steel and wood will be used to create the fitness facilities in the fitness area. This intervention of the site will not only increase circulation and ecology-community interaction, but it will also turn this site in to a core city park that is meant for the overall improvement of social and mental well-being of the residents in the Sheffield area.

The site that lies along St. Mary’s Gate and Eyre street consists of a large parking lot can be reconstructed to make more space for the community. The space required to accommodate automobiles - when not in use, is substantial. If more space were allocated to walking pedestrians and cyclists, along with intervention of new programs and the wellbeing C I R C U L AT I O N activities, & FUNCTIO N L AY ERS of the local community can be improved significantly.

Plant Palette Fall:

Summer/ Spring:

Resin Bound Gravel will be used as the pavement because it is partially permeable, easy to maintain and not to mention it has a nicer appearance. Enabling rainwater to permeate through this surface, the gravel allows the ground water to level and thus helps to regulate the effects of ‘heave’ and ‘shrinkage’. This prevents water from collecting on the ground that may be undesirable to walk on after a rain. This material is also resistant to harsh weathers in the winter and summer.

The chosen vegetation in this park are not only eye-catching but also fragrant when they flower in the Spring time. They will heighten the user experiences as their senses are activated.

30m

N 20m

Here is the bridge that is formed by placing large stone blocks and rocks across the river. The reason for this material is to keep its form organic to create a hard surface that is more “natural” in aesthetics. As the water is very shallow, the top of the stone will be just slightly above water to ensure it is safe for people to step on.

More rocks will be placed at the river edge to keep it aesthetically beautiful but also to create a more smooth transition between water and land. In addition, the growth of prairie grass will soften this boundary to create a more dynamic experience for users.

24

In the Fall, the fallen red and orange leaves will create a very beautiful palette on the ground surface. It will be a great time for families and friends to gather to experience the last traces of the season before the trees go dormant.

This outdoor performance stage is an extension of the Theatre Deli. The ground surface is made of rubber mulch as it will give a softer bounce for activities that require more movements, such as dancing, performing and singing. This material will also be more comfortable to sit on. In addition, rubber mulch offers a more protective layer that does not cause major injuries when a person falls down. Public chairs can be placed temporarily to engage the local residents in these performances and concerts. On non-performance days, this area is great for families and older people to rest, people watch, or read a book.

Concrete will be used for the round seating. Public seating is a very important feature of parks and it is important that the material chosen is durable and built to be long lasting. Concrete is a good choice because unlike wood, it will not be affected by rainwater in the long run. It is also a lot more secure and safe to use.

A series of stepped Gabion Wall are created here for seating as well as retaining the river. They are also served as places for viewing the landscape. The change of ground level offers a sound barrier from the high layers of this landscape. The habitat will also attract native birds and insects, creating a livable community.

ROCKY HILLS RESTORATION PARK Reclaiming the former Finkl Steel Site of Industrial Chicago through activating movement and programming on the riverfront. The Rocky Hills Restoration Park is a reclaimed public park and riverfront in the industrial neighborhood of the North Branch Chicago River in Chicago, Illinois. The site used to house the factory for the Finkl Steel mill, a concrete production company, for over 100 years. The site has been left unused since 2015. The proposed master plan will deliver a mix of uses such as office spaces, a public playground, water activities as well as an extension of the 606 Bike trail. The former industrial site will be turned in to a vibrant community park that could connect the neighboring Wicker Park, Lincoln Park as well as Bucktown.

PARK(ING) DAY 2017 Giving back public space to the local people. As part of the executive committee of the Student Chapter of ASLA at University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (UIUC), our team transformed 2 out of the 10 selected parking lots in to a temporary plaza in Downtown Champaign, Illinois. The ASLA UIUC proposed: an interactive canvas for painting, an art installation, and seating. Other Parking Day lots (that were used by other Student and Community Organizations) include live music, a bike repair clinic, a small garden, and games.

Approximately 10 lots were selected to be transformed “temporary plazas” in Downtown Champaign. The lots were chosen from Neil St and Chester St as they were one of the more congested areas in downtown. The ASLA UIUC Lots (highlighted red in the image on the right) were located along Chester St. The ASLA team planned for something fun and interactive for the public, thus proposed: 1) a canvas for painting, 2) an art installation of a wavy landform with balloons and 3) outdoor seating.

1) Canvas for Painting

2) Art Installation of Wavy Landform with Balloons

+

3) Outdoor Seating 1) A large sheet of fabric (approximately 50” x 70”) is used for the canvas. Our team started with painting the base of the painting - A ‘bald’ tree that is to be filled with leaves by the guests of our site. We then have the users put on gloves and dip them in green paint, and let them ‘print’ their hands on to the tree. 2) Foam was used to create these wavy landforms, and they are painted in hues of green. Balloons were attached to PVC Pipes, which then were attached to the metal fence provided. 3) An outdoor bench was created using cinder blocks and wooden planks. We stacked the cinder blocks horizontally on 2 sides and inserted 2 wooden plank through the holes to create a sturdy bench. Balloons were attached at both ends of the bench to create a nicer look. 36

EQUILIBRIUM | HYBRIDIZE Hybridizing ecology in to the local landscape in Downtown Champaign, Illinois. “Equilibrium” is a condition where all competing influences are balanced while “Hybridize” is a state where two or more intangible forms are combined, interlocked and mixed. Using this concept, a desirable design can be formulated where all systems and fabrics are playing a balanced role. The site intervention is to connect a local neighborhood park “West Park” to Downtown Champaign. A desirable path from the softscape to hardscape would be a green corridor park that could hybridize individual functions, circulations and ecology altogether. Three apartment buildings, a basketball court, an amphitheater and a cafe are proposed to offer multiple layers of function. Proposed paths will also cross a series of berms and swales to enhance human-ecology interaction.
