LADN 212 Design Studio Project 1 04/2009 - 06/2009, 8 weeks Site: Mt Victoria, Wellington, NZ Course Coordinator: Meaghan P. Delaney

Project Discription As food production and consumption networks are well connected globally, nation like New Zealand is most depended on the overseas’ trade market for local food consumption, and heavily use petrol-cost transportations for food supply. Such situation leaves potential threat to the urban food network: as when fusel energy reserve is in depletion, cities’ food supplies are in danger. In preparing such incidents, urban agriculture has been recently reintroduced to local communities. As for this project, a proposal is made to establish a community garden for the Mt Victoria residential district in the heart of Wellington city. The design intents to establish an urban agricultural field to support partial of communities’ food consumption, and performs as a landscape infrastructure in connecting the local community activities (e.g. agriculture, education, recreation, trade) and trigger potential community interactions.

SITE CONDITION

West Entrance

Abandent Bowling Field

Close to Majorbank Street, this green field is the most visit playfield for local communities. With an entrance point to access Wellington East Walk trace, it is also a popular tourism recreational site. To intergrate this area as a part of community garden will provide large open spaces for associated garden activities (e.g. vege sale, Picnic Festival)

Used to be as the reserve bowling field for Mt Victoria Bowling Club, these field has never been used for bolwing and remain abandoned. However, the site is still in good condition: flat surface, good soil, expose to sunshine, which make it ideal for deploy urban farming.

Mt Victoria Bowling Club

Seated back against Wellington Town belt, Mt Victoria Bowling Club is a historical site and one of the few still active sports club in the land shorted Wellington Centre. Important as a part of the Mt Victoria distruct community, although it takes much of land in the site area, it should be preserved and integrated with the community garden installation. Planting activities and social sports can actively trigger interesting connection of community social getehering.

SPATIAL MODELING Songlines and Tactile Mapping Exercise LADN 311 Design Studio Assignment 03/2010 - 04/2010, 4 weeks Site: Centre Business Distirct, Wellington, NZ Course Coordinator: Meaghan P. Delaney

Project Discription Tactile Mapping is an ancient technique far beyond moden use for visually impaired personal use. History shows the Maori people have a long tradition in recording geographical and navigational information through crafting. Through this, they were able to relate their own sense of being, expressed in cosmology, genealogy, history, and lived experience, in the oral map that is laid on the landscape. The strong human sensitivity of material and texture through skin gives us an unique approach to feel the world differently. This assignement started by randomly choose a song to listen while walking though urban streets, create a path of journey based on the emotional influence from the music and the spatial characters. Then, back to the studio, trace and categorise the spatial characters on the journey. Through the organising of spatal qualities destinguished by the definistion of Intersitial Space and Iminal Space, we were be able to commencing a tactile mapping of the journey on handcraft wood model, as well as digital Rehino model and a 3D print machine fabrication.

CITY PARASITES Wellington CBD Street Furniture Design LADN 311 Design Studio Project 05/2010 - 06/2010, 4 weeks Site: Centre Business Distirct, Wellington, NZ Course Coordinator: Meaghan P. Delaney

Project Discription This project is about applying “parasite” theory to develop an urban public occupation strategy – a series of outdoor furniture design for pedestrians across Wellington Center Business District. The inspiration is originated from the emulated strategy of parasites. The parasites present a high degree of specialization for their mode of life by mutate and adapt quickly to their host environment. My project is to first design a furniture prototype, and then mutates its form and functions based on the characteristics of its deploied locations in the city. Like the parasites, the deployed furnitures remain their identifiable traits of form but are able to mutate and adapt accroding to the changes of surrounding (flow of traffic, noise level, density, frequency and duration of occupation, etc.). I learned from this project that every landscape component, though should present a traceable identity back to its conceptual idea, should be designed consciously to adapt to its sited environment as well.

Proposed Street Furniture Bus Stop Shelter A Shelter here provides basic protection for extreme short time occupation. Major influences on this site may need to take consideration of rain, wind, timetables of buses service and commercial hours. The shelter here identify one of city street elements as bus stop and provide primetres for people to occupy.

Seating Bench The most common implement in urban streets, yet hardly paid attention by people. For a placement of street bench, the consideration should looking for travel speed of streets, people’s destination flow, and adjacent environment safety (e.g. space against bench, where makes occupation feel secure)

Table Set Several sets of picnic tables and seats will activited the site dramatically, and attract more poeple, this design simply allow tempore installation as soon as ocuupation is less needed for resting and can provide spaces for other outdoor activities.

Site Datat Overlay

Project Discription The project was issued under the scenario that we were asked to assist the Porirua City Council in developing a coherent strategy for managing development pressures that are already building and will increase in the future. The aim was to preserve the critical ecosystem functions and landscape qualities in the area while accommodating appropriate types and amounts of development activity (such as wind-farming site, transmission gully, cultural village, borrowed landscapes and subdivision). The tasks were to undertake a comprehensive environmental analysis, make appropriate land use recommendations for potential developments, and later provide a more specific plan for a particular component of potential developments.

Transmission Gully

Utilities Intersections within Rural Environment The preferred route of transmission gully through Battle Hill Farm Forest Park (a historical site for Maori culture) is one of sample issues in dealing utilities intersection within rural environment.

A new transportation project of transmission gully is currently under debate of undertaking. This new regional transformational infrastructure is one of eight sections of the Wellington Northern Corridor road of national significance. The desire for an inland alternative route for State Highway 1 (SH1) to bypass the coastal areas north of Wellington has been sought for more than 50 years and its main aim is to provide an essential alternative route out of Wellington.

The prefered route is on the valley foor, instead of being high on the steep amd occupy on the Horokiri Stream which is one of the significant environmental areas. Although the construction could provide more opportunity in improve stormwater control and creates less risk of sediment entering the Horokiri stream. However, the impacts of this section of highway on the park will be significant in turns of impacts on visual quality values of the park, road noise and associated utilities such as power line and gas line.

Site Highlights

Flora

Pauatahanui Inlet Restoration During the 1960-70s exotic plantation forests have been established on a number of areas of Council land. These areas are Predominantly planted in Radiata pines which are now mature and commonly create problems because of their proximity to residential property. The opportunity is available now to restore much of the vegetation back to indigenous forest, this has been put forward by the Porirua City Council in their Revegetation Policy. Stream side planting and protection or riparian areas defined by riparian woodland, riparian forest, riparian buffer zone, or riparian strip. When replanting a riparian zone, 10m should be left either side of the stream for minimal impact on the ecosystem. Riparian areas have a large impact in ecology and environmental management because of their prime roll in habitat biodiversity; soil conservation; water quality and on ecosystems as a whole.

Legal Process of Land Jurisdiction


Subdivision Sustainable Mapping

To supos the new transmission gully will occur in the near future, such transportation infrastructure will trigger a large increase of rural residential sbudivsion developements within the Porirua region. To insure the these developement are growing with a sustainable vision in preserve local environmental integrity, we are proposing a sustianable subdivision plan to coordinate the needs of future developments on the land and the potential effects of these acitvties to the current environment.

Rural Subdivision Reuqirements

Sustainability Mapping

Subdivision in rural region has its very different style and requirements to insure quality of countryside living. As regional council’s guidline indicates, rural subdivision land log is required to contian at least 2 ha, and usually 3-5 ha land size land to fit into definition. Three key aspects are usually important to effect rural subdivisions location: 1. Quality visual landscape features (ridgelines, waters, exotic contours, forests); 2. Domaned lifestyle properties (house quality, management condition, basic infrastructures); 3. Accessability (connection to regional transportation infrastructures, distance to nearest urban populated area

By accounting the influnces of landscape data that may effect potential subdivision activties spreading, we proposed three different scales of future subdivision spreads: Minimum, Proposed and Maxmum spread. each indicates a sustainable mapping of developments’ occurence without compramise regional environmental synthesis.

Subdivision Site Analysis

In the detailed scenario, we are assuming an owner of 146 Ha land is looking forward to subdivide his land. This site is located at south part of Pauatahanui Catchment, southeast away from the Porirua City, locally adjacent to the Judgeford Golf Course, seats back against Boulder Hill. The site contains qualities of some typical rural landscape characters in this region.

Regional Access

View Shafts

The location of this site has a high potential for future subdivision development as it close to the new transmission gully proposed route but also keep a reasonable distance. this future State Highway 1 will improve physical connections in-between the site, Porirua city, Wellington city much more closer in compare with current transportation infrastructures. Also, as the site close to the State Highway 58 ( Paremata Haywards Rd), which also connects this site to the Lower Hutt City.

From curtain spot sites with appropriate altitudes and weather conditions, view shafts towards the north of Pauatahanui catchment are very clear and contain variety of different rural landscape characters.

Local access The site could be accessed mainly through Murphys Road connects to the State Highway 58, which keep a distance from the main traffic of the region and preserve a relative quality of rural lifestyle sense. On the west side, there is also another access point connects to the Harris Road. Within the site itself, there are several rural road routes that provide access to different area. In the future development, these roads will be upgraded (if necessary).

Prominent Landforms Prominent landforms contribute to local character. Landforms unique to the site and of particular interest and concern include all main hilltops, ridges and spurs. Varies degrees of slopes across different altitudes create different landscape character, such as plains, valleys and terraces.


Microclimate

Slope & Sunshine

The predominant wind in Wellington comes from the northwest before it is funnelled through Cook Strait. These north-westerly winds dominate spring and summer, but in winter the majority of wind comes from the south. These southerly winds bring with them cold air from the Southern Ocean. Luckily the Pauatahanui Inlet is moderately sheltered from the south. In one year the wind came from the north and northwest for 61% of the time and from the south for 28% of the time. Only 11% of the days in the year were calm. For just under half of the year winds blew at more than 60 kilometres per hour. The local community also reports that the heavy horizontal rainfall is one of the significant landscape characters of this area.

North facing slopes are more desirable for the subdivision development to get the maximum amount of sunshine hours. The aspect of the slopes has one of the biggest impacts on the microclimate within the area. Typically the south-eastern side is cooler and moister whereas the north-western side is warmer and drier.

Vegetation Patterns

Wetland Eco System

Existing exotic trees and shrubs are extremely important to the character of settled rural areas. The site has already contained curtain amount of vegetation covers on the landform. Areas adjacent to wetlands, waterways and valleys very often associated with boggy Marginal plants. Other tall canopies such as pine trees are very often seen next to some existing houses. The site also adjacent several large forest belts and a small lake to the north.

Vegetation adjacent to the waterway provides shade, keeping the water cool and reduces water temperature fluctuations, also reduces algal growth-thus providing higher quality water. Water runoff is particularly important in these wetland areas as it can carry sediments from roads, cattle and the land in residential use before entering the waterways. Tree planting on streambanks can effectively reduce sediment and stock entering the waterways. Planting vegetation also provides the greatest beneficial impact on water quality and stabilizing of banks. (See sections)

Planning Strategy

Redefine Rural Life Stlye - Rural Residental Community Typically, in order to reflect the character of the locality, and to particularly distinguish between rural character and suburban character, rural pattern is featured as one of buildings surrounded by land, with the buildings always subservient to the landscape. Such design on one hand has preserved rural landscape characters and maintained maximum of privacy of individual houses; however, on the other hand, it has subdivided connections between rural neighborhoods and local community and isolated individual residence. Houses within one area are often has less communication and integration at the level of landscape control and management as they are too separated from each other. Effects of such design pattern at certain level will increase many issues that due to little collaboration between neighborhoods and community. Issues such as unnecessary extra road vesting, earth works; disordered utilities layout and infrastructures will eventually increase unnecessary additional impacts and pressures to the border landscape ecosystem.

Typical House Arrangement Pattern

Prefered House Arrangement pattern

Management Stratergy To insure the concept of integrated neighborhoods collaboration works. The new proposal will establish arrange of management strategies to enhance the design intent actually works. As introduced in the proposal description, the subdivision quire owners of to raise a capital founds and found a local community committee (or employ a property service and management company) to control and manage the overall of the whole subdivision site. This intent is to insure that although the site is subdivided into many lots of individual owners, the whole site of subdivision is still recognized as a united single property owned and managed of a formal legal authorization. This authorization, as a form of community committee, represents the integrated will of all individual lot owners, is responsible to provide property management and service for individual lots within the site, as well as the overall site management and maintenance issues.


Subdivision Plan

Land log layout and House Placement Section A1 is reserved as subdivison community committee office Additionally, the total of Waterway Eco Reserve takes away arround 62Ha area of essential rural landscape land. Although the lots sizes area generally less than the District Plan’s Minimum requirement of rural sbudivision lots size of 5Ha; The site contribute huge amount of quality land as reserves for recreational uses, the rural character of subdivison’s vision is achieved and the quality of rural lifestyle amunity is well enhanced. Lots layout and lot sizes are indicated as presented:

Vegetation plantation The purpose of exotic vegetation plantation is to provide neccessary visual covers and privacy protection, prevent eccessary visual compremisation, especially on hilltops. Also, in Wellingtin region, trees also function as wind block and helter for rural houses. The plantation plan here mainly focus on provide visual cover and shelter against north-west Prevailing Wind.

Design Concept

Concave-convex architecture facade was arranged according to a principle model of plus one thickness, which results in a dynamic and 3 dimentional elevation.

Rythm of Data: Flow, Communicate and Directering

Internet is a large synthetic system that is formed by flowing datas. Information flow base on variety of methods, like rythms. As the leading IT company in China willing to boost a healthy internet growth, the impression that Tencent has always made for the public is happy and pleasant. The landscape design is trying to explore extentions and variations from the architecture linear flowing elements, by planning the flow of activities movements to reflect the flow of data in Internet. Through extent the linear elements pavement all over the site, and integrated with up lift green belts, the landscape will generate a sense of happy spatial quality as well as satisfy the accessibility to the architecture.

Roof Plant Design Strategy

Floor Spatial Analysis A Block

Roof Weight Reducing

17th floor is for t he management meeting floor, which the top 18th floor roof garden w ill serve for. Here the landscaping considers applying exchange spaces for meeting staff, allowing relax and comfort gardens to ease stress from business discussion.

Roof soil should never cover too thick, which leads planting strategy strictly limits to 400mm maxmum, Only allow small canopies to be planted at structural post position. The majority of area will have low rise plants, lawn or even no plants at all.

Many small roof gardens are seperately spreaded arcoss various floors from 5th to 15th level. Apart from the 6th floor, all of them are close to major office area. For this, landscape should consider various changes of ground pavements and plantations to make contact with working spaces and allow such exterior spaces to be open and green.

Water re-collection should reach certain requirements. Since natrual water is more suitable than civil water pipe for landscape care, water recollection strategy for this project is target to roof garden plantations.

5th Floor Office

8th floor is for recreat ional purpose, which involves a variety of gym, pool room and ping-pong room. Therefore,the landscape is looking to extend recreational activities from interior to exterior. This floor is also the primary platform towards the open view shaft. Various visual engagements may be established including connections to B block, and centre courtyard.ect.

Floor Spatial Analysis B Block The funcitonal layout for B block is very similar with A block. Heavy roof gardens wich are 8th recreational floor and 18th floor right on top of meeting floor. Other light roof gardens spread at different levels of major office spaces from 11th to 16th floor. For function, landscape apply same strategy to place a garden for 18th roof garden t arget to the 17th meeting floor for treatment. The other heavy roof garden floor 8th will servce as a exterior platform for recreation and training purpose since the 8th floor interior spaces are mostly planned for such activities. Other light roof gardens will provide small open spaces for working staff to relax and communicate.

the layout for B block can be review ed as a circle with focus at the centre, which variety of roof platforms may over watch the centre. Even though, the centre three level exterior spaces is rather small, each next to the major inner spaces are for IT equipments, restaurant and office, these roof garden may be connect as a connected area. For view sharft, this area will provide centre focous for all above roof gardens as well as architecture floors, which allow thems to be applied within the design of such area. The spaces here may also over watch the front courtyard before entrance.

Roof Garden Master Plan B Block Design for roof garden on B Block is looking for a visual connetion between centre focus and surroundings. An abstract pattern of dynamic vegetation pattern is created at the centre. This will provide a key landescape feature for the entire B building floors and platforms. the surrounding roof gardens will be applied with block or linear landscape elements to provide varies open spaces.
