Emerald City 50/50 + Rocade

GSAPP 2013 International studio Collaborators: Ara Hovsepyan Elham Morovvati

The symbolic intersection of the Garrone River, which was central to Bordeaux’s infrastructure and economy, and the Rocade, which is marks its current status, is the location of our site in Bouliac. Today, a poorly planned Auchan superstore to its north and a floodable area or “zone humide” to the south, which are bisected by the Ring Road. The land of the superstore and much of the flooded fields share one owner who has attempted but been unable to build on the green space. Emerald City attempts to incentivize the transformation of the landscape into a regionally advantageous large park by adding buildable area to the land North of the Rocade in exchange for preservation and enhancement of the green area to the south, and connecting the two. ‘50/50’ has become a motto of the Urban Community of Bordeaux to express intentions to contain an equal amount of green and built area within the agglomeration of La CUB. The proposed strategy of development, preservation, and transformation creates a ‘postcard’ image as one approaches the right bank. The 50/50 exemplified by Emerald City incorporates, and is in fact formed by another symbolic element of Bordeaux, the rocade. The rocade is viewed in a positive light, as a necessary and efficient means of transportation, and a former of the form of the city. The postcard image created is one of density in built fabric placed against a large park, divided and defined by the Francois Mitterand bridge of the ring road. Pools are carved at the park’s edge - seasonally flooded, agriculture is integrated with spaces for vending, botanical gardens provide a cultural center, sporting facilities provide local gathering for leisure, and a new bridge connects the urban density over the rocade encouraging pedestrian gathering. The built environment to the north is more effectively planned, employing verticality within parking to densify it, freeing up space for the public realm, as well as introducing a mix of hotels, offices, and housing. Emerald City is a mini-manifestation of the urban realm of Bordeaux, with its dense fabric and preserved accessible green as its identifying elements. into decline and something like a light rail loop would be built around Lake Macquarie connecting all the main urban centres like Swansea and Toronto to the stations on the main Sydney-Newcastle rail line, with pick ups every few minutes. The proposed urban vision is for lively, walkable, medium density urban villages.

Comparing Peripheral Large Parks

In the area immediately surrounding Bordeaux, we see a scarcity of cities with over 1,000,000 inhabitants and large parks. Cultural facilities and large Lyon Munich parks better facilitate the urban condition and landscape of the city. Bordeaux Parc de La Tete d’Or Englischer Garten should include such a peripheral park, marking the center of the vacant Area 137 ha Area 370large ha circle illustrated in the diagram above.

Comparing green spaces and built developments along the rocade, a unique situation is discovered in terms of scale and agencies at Bouiac, at the southeast end of the ring-road. A crucial point of this land, the territory that lies right along the rocade, is owned by a developer who has been unable to build on the green area due to flooding issues.

Generator for the City The heavy traffic in Bouliac provides an opportunity to reach more people with an experiential intervention, a spectacle from the rocade. When we look closely at the experiences along the four chosen locations, we see that three have dispersed areas of green and built, while the fourth, in Bouliac, has a strong sense of seperation between landscape and fabric.

View Intervals

Viewshed To diagram the views every 20 seconds of the passanger traveling at an average speed on the rocade exposes the opportunity provided by this specific location. A sense of openness around the highway provides long views beyond, making the potential intervention more visible and more of an identitymarker.


Mineral The Built 50 The higher density of the built is planned, and used as an incentive for the owner of the current Auchan shopping center for the preservation of green. The proposed, higher density fabric extends to the next bridge, currently cleared for construction, to the north, connecting the developments through emphasized circulation paths. The line of separation defining the built is marked mostly by the rocade, but certain pieces spill over and fit into each other in a more complex way, almost as a symbol of yin and yang.

Vegetal The Green 50 The green region occupies the southern half of the site, and provides a visible indicator of preservation to the passerby. The park, as a sole peripheral large park of Bordueax, takes its identity as a green emerald on the ring. Paths and small architectural interventions make their way into the park for access and circulation, but a majority remains preserved. The main mass of green hangs off of the rocade in plan, but thin, sinuous strips find their way into the mineral half.

Densification The massing strategy of the mineral half of the proposal is designed with the scale and sentiment of the surrounding area and of Bordeaux as a whole. The larger buildings at the periphery of the fabric, towards the rocade, gesture toward the existing forces, including the Garonne and flood dike

The proposed bridge allows for exceptional views of both the densificatoin (shown to the left) and preservation (shown above).

Preservation In times of flooding,, the excess water is carried through proposed water channels and collected in catchement areas. The catchement locations add ecological value to the park. The park is designed to be mostly natural, and preserved with minimal interventions.

Turning the Tide Adapting to Sea-Level Rise in Lake Macquarie

University of Sydney, 2009 Coordinators: Glen Hill, Daniel Ryan Collaborators: Tarsa M Moayed Selected Student Work http://sydney.edu.au/architecture/CS/ postgrad/student_works/sustainable_ design09sem02.shtml

Engineering solutions have a history of failing, and failing catastrophically. The levees around New Orleans not only failed, they made the situation vastly worse by not letting the flood water back out.Building sea walls will destroy the vital lake edge ecology. This will effect marine life and fish stocks in the lake and the ocean. protecting the property of a privileged few, may disadvantage the broader community.A lot of people who don’t own waterfront land, use the lake in many other ways, like fishing and boating.

In this studio we tried to create architecture that would adapt over time as the sea rose; the architecture that contained refuges from the flood events that will become more common; But at the same time, we tried to create communities that were more sustainable and more liveable than the ones we have now.


Our ideal urban vision locates town houses or apartments within a few minutes walk of shops, waterfront cafes, shared recreational facilities and open space. And of course good public transport .Some time in the

next century the car would be forced into decline and something like a light rail loop would be built around Lake Macquarie connecting all the main urban centres like Swansea and Toronto to the stations on the main Sydney-Newcastle rail line, with pick ups every few minutes. The proposed urban vision is for lively, walkable, medium density urban villages.

Engineering works such as sea walls or levees will not work


Lake Macquarie

FUTURE Swansea and Dora Creek would be totally inundated when there is a seal level rise of 10m, presuming the sea level is rising at the current rate of 1m per 100 years


ISSUES Town centre of Swan Sea is expected significant population growth but at the same time there will be threatened by inundation from sea level rise and specially flooding.

URBAN SCALE The project identified and resolved spatial and infrastructural conflicts between topography, development, flood events, population increase and local ecologies (e.g. mangroves and forests). Also dealt with primary effects of sea level rise (e.g. flooding and loss of property) or secondary effects (e.g. inward land clearance due to retreat of a town from the coastal edge).

Swansea Sea level rise

ARCHITECTURAL SCALE Development of a new typology of building and landscape infrastructure that increases the resilience of the community and local ecosystems to the effects of sea level rise and climate change.

Flood Level +1.2m

Flood Level +1.4m

Flood Level +1.8m

Flood Level +2.4m


TIMESCALE

stage 1: 2029

stage 2: 2059

The sea level rise, flood level and population growth is studied in swansea in the next 20, 50 and 100 years and based on the study the strategy aimed on relocation of residents of the most vulnerable areas to the safer lands .In the next step the relocation process is divided into 2 stages for the next 20 to 50 years.

stage 3: 2109

ProposaL 1: R  elocating residents of the most vulnerable areas to the safer lands 2: Relocating the pacific highway 3: T  he new pacific highway divides the site to the ecological – environmental area (including natural dune with vegetations reducing the flood effect) and the residential- commercial area (including 4,5 storey apartments and 2 storey courtyard types), connected by the pedestrian bridge. 4: F  looded water is directed to water pools within the urban space, where it is gradually disposed to the wetlands.

Benefits 1: Adaptability to flood 2: C  reating a new urban space that attracts more residents 3: Preserving the original character of Swansea 4: S  ustainability of the new proposed design both environmentally and socially 5: maintaining the existing network of streets 6: G  radual transfer of the existing commercials into the new development


stage 1: 2029

stage 2: 2059

stage 3: 2109


Project The project tackled the problem of Swansea’s main commercial strip being located on the low-lying Pacific Highway. The Pacific Highway is relocated to the rear side of the current commercial strip but at a higher level. This meant that the shops and offices had one high frontage onto the now raised pacific highway, and the lower frontage onto the old pacific highway, which would now be much quieter, could develop a new pedestrianised zone which connected to the water’s edge. They envisaged shopping plazas and terraces stepping between the higher and lower level and then connecting to the water.

Expanding Architecture University of Sydney, 2011 Coordinator: John Choi (Choi Rophia) Times Square TKTS Booth Architect


Background Expanding architecture is about looking at opportunities for where 'architecture' can intervene, through an interrogation of current built environment and building typologies. Mining for opportunities to architecturally exploit where one might find gaps between typological norm and current cultural, social, economic and technological condition.

In most cases architects are engaged long after development conception, and practice as a 'problem-solver' and/or 'form giver'. This studio looks at expanding the capacity of the architect, bringing architectural thinking to the initial conception of the future. Expanding architecture is thinking about broad social, economic, environmental and technological conditions and to mine for opportunities where ‘architecture’ can intervene with new possibilities in the built environment. This is what means 'design' in the studio. There is no site nor brief given

THE GAP ”Health is a state of complete physical, psychological and social well being; not only the absence of illness!” Definition of Health by WHO 70% causes of health relates to the environment and activities(lifestyle) within the working, living and recreation places but only 2.7 of public budget spent on these. This indicates the possibility of supportive design as a tool to promote health in society. (Dever1976Hjort1984)


Position People aged 12 - 24 years make up 20.2% of the total City of Sydney population. They need more physical and mental care attention due to the less supervision of parents and community. Young people in Sydney are faced with many issues such as a lack of inappropriate use of public space, lack of support services lack of free recreation and entertainment opportunities provided specifically for them.( of Sydney youth strategy and action plan 2006) As young people like to do special activities due to their age, they like to do these activities in an un-institutional way, and in public places. However most of the youth centres are located in run down and inappropriately located facilities and they primarily provide institutional activities, which they do not tend to attend. As a consequent they are exiled in public places again. Because young individuals like to spend their time and hang out in an un-institutional youth friendly place where they have a sense of ownership and feel comfortable. The other issue is due to new communication technologies. Young people prefer to stay home and hang out in cyberspace instead of socializing with other youths from their community.

University of Sydeny, 2010 Coordinator:Peter Armstrong Urban Micro infrastructures Studio

Everyday Urbanism A studio approaching urban architecture as micro-topic interventions that overlay and plug in to the city. Its emphasis will be on developing projects that reconfigure and reactivate the marginal, residual and public spaces of central Sydney. This studio begins with the proposition that urban architecture does not mean big architecture. It does not mean designing city icons. It does not mean master planning swathes of the city. Instead, rather than being focused on scale, the work of this studio will be inclined towards intensity and effect. The potential of small scale interventions - micro-infrastructures - to reconfigure and reactivate the city will be our area of investigation. This is grounded in a concern for “everyday urbanism�; an approach to urban architecture and design that is situational and specific.


SYDNEY Sydney is often claimed as one of the world’s most beautiful cities. The natural setting of the harbour, and the two icons of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, have strongly shaped that view. In the second half of the twentieth century, Sydney emerged as Australia’s premier international city, through its role as a base for financial services and other internationally significant industries. The lifestyle the city can offer, and its outstanding natural setting, have played an important role in attracting people to live and work here. However, the central city functions predominantly as a place to work, with few attractions to keep its workers after six pm. The busy streets quickly empty as the majority of visitors and workers retreat home to the suburbs. Tourists congregate at the Rocks, Darling Harbour and Circular Quay, but outside business hours these places attract relatively few locals. There has been a significant increase in the residential population of the city centre in recent years but that growing population is not well served. The city centre remains predominantly a place for business and shopping, limiting the amenity for residents and providing a limited set of attractions for other Sydneysiders. Away from water views, it does not fulfil its potential as a major attraction in its own right. Particularly for those already living in the city, and for future residents, there needs to be a variety of facilities and activities available. The community’s desire for a more vibrant, cultural, lively and connected city centre was expressed during consultation for Sustainable Sydney 2030. The city is increasing in density and lifestyles are changing. Its centre needs more appropriate social spaces for its higher density residential fabric, more variety in the scale and grain of its economic activity, and greater support for alternative transport modes. These aspects should come together to help create a stronger civic and urban focus in the central city.

Microinfrastructures The task for this studio is to intervene in the overlaid and interwoven layers and levels, infra- and substructures of Sydney., with an emphasis on transformation and conversion in the urban context. The growth of the city has led to peculiar tensions between components of its built fabric (such as infrastructure and buildings, public space and private development, civic and transport facilities). Although adjacent to each other, these elements are often self-absorbed and perform discretely within their context. These adjacencies have given rise to a rich urban anomaly - the residue of the built city. This studio asks you to consider the ways in which these unexploited resources can be adopted, adapted, re-thought and re-formed. Our proposition is that through mediation and connection, architecture can charge anomalous spaces, reconsider transitions in the city, and help propagate a vital urban culture.

The proposal for the site: 1. Provide a balance of value between two sides of Erskine Street. The value of the northern side as part of Sydney heritage streetscape is higher than the southern side which contains high density commercial buildings. The northern part consists of some retail shops and boutiques within heritage buildings that causes this side to become an active area. 2. P  rovide a strong connection between two main parts of Sydney CBD (Wynyard station on the eastern side of Erskine and Darling harbour on the western side). 3. Provide a recreational area during lunch time and after work drinks to attract individuals who work in high density commercial buildings around Wynyard Park and Sussex Street.

VERTICAL ACCESS


PubArt A place for spatial experiment and social encounter. The main idea is to create a place that can act as point of reference helping visitors gain a sense of direction in the area and navigate throughout the space. Lack of a strong connection between Darling Harbour and George Street brought the idea of creating a hub in between. A vacant space between office Hotel building and upper space of Wynyard hotel in the middle of Erskine Street will be revitalized into a multilevel building consisting of pubs and restaurants combined with spatial experiment arts. The goal of design strategy is to preserve the existing building and provide an entrance from the ground floor pub. Three essential elements were amalgamated to create this place:

Imageability

Activity

Building form

An urban Icon attracting people walking in between these 2 main points of the city, either brings them inside and moves them around for social encounter or letting them pass by through this street and get to their destination with a vision of an active street frontage, altogether creating an urban animation. The idea is essentially about place making where places are not just a specific space, but all the activities and events which made it possible. In this place, people who come for eating, drinking or clubbing experience spaces created by different installation arts. This complex is also flexible to transform between day and night providing opportunities for informal, casual meetings to take place, including warm and friendly bars and club. The 800 m² building is in the shape of a glittering cube held by a ruby red glass box creating multiple use spaces out of the existing fabric by pushing, lifting and hanging elements, creating interior space within the exterior context. Apart of the facade is flexible during Day and Night by moveable sliding glass to create open public floors during the day and a shining box during night.

SPACE 1

A THEME FOR A CONNECTION The contrast between urban context and nature is realized in extreme when it comes to the relationship between the beach and its adjacent urban context. People walking on the streets suddenly find themselves walking on the sand. The idea is to create a pathway between beach and its urban content in the city . this connection spreads in the beach and continues into water. In addition to a connection this pathway also provides spaces for people to interact, hangout and enjoy the sea view as well as providing a place for Kite boarders to get ready or on the other side a place for fishermen to fish! Inspired by Indian stairs as a traditional form of connection to water and modern jetties that visually bring people close to the water ,but not into it.

A COMBINATION OF MOVEMENT AND STILLNESS ALONG THE PATHWAY

SEA


The initial concept is based on creating a pathway or a continuous surface spreading in the beach and into the water. In the first step various branches were connected to one another. Multiple patterns were designed Rhino and cut in laser cutter.


KEEP OFF OR WELCOME Dolls Point Beach located in southern Sydney, is a rather quiet beach and home to fine sailing, water views and abundant parklands. During windy seasons lots of Kite boarders come to this beach. One of the main characteristics of Dolls Point is its rock walls repeating along the shore to reduce erosion. The rock wall extending into the water is so inviting and at the same time walking on the wall towards sea is prohibited for safety reasons. This beach is a perfect site for the proposed idea. The new pathway can make this beach more alive, facilitate different activities as well as providing an access over the rock and leading people to the water.


DESIGN PROCESS

Structure merging with the rock wall

The surface of the design will be formed triangulation method connected to one another with different angles. In order to achieve this, the pattern forming the triangles was flown on the surface in rhino programme. This divides the surface into attached triangles.

Individual triangles creating the surface

Triangles were pushed down to smoothly fold the surface into the water.

shadings were created by moving up the triangles to the desired height.

Horizontal strips along the surface provide sitting area.

Structure wrapping the rock wall

Chosen pattern and flown surface


314 different triangles are classified and named for laser cutter panels. There are totally 567 faces in total. Each triangle has its own angle and rotation.


FABRICATION Each three or four sided timber panel is made up of a series of individual components, connected by a continuous dovetail joint that runs around the perimeter. Each individual timber is curved in CNC milling machine to provide the space for dovetail and cross bracings. The assembly tectonic was informed by the traditional crossbracing that occurs behind the skin of a timber. This technique is employed using a locking dovetail system, creating a framework to begin developing the form. The precise filleted space between each board references the way timber age naturally.


The wood panels are connected to each other by water jet cut aluminium joints, embed in the assembly process. Each aluminium joint accommodates the specific angle between one panel of wood and its adjoining panel. Consideration of the sequence of assembly and fabrication is equally important as the development of the joinery techniques.
