NICOLE RENEE REBECK landscape architecture design work 2014 to 2015


WELCOME I fell in love with the landscape at a young age, enamored by the many forms it takes and the diverse and layered functions it serves. I am blessed to have both the urban and rural landscape embedded in my memory. My home base was in a charming south St. Louis neighborhood, but during visits to our family farm, I had access to the vast horizons of countryside around Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. Before graduate school, I was a gardener, garden designer, volunteer habitat advisor, and community garden leader. My transition to landscape architecture strengthened my land ethic and introduced me to contemporary sociological and global issues. I believe the design process is a beautiful struggle where clarity emerges after research, iteration, and collaboration. My professional interests include planting design, campus and institutional masterplanning, urban public space design, bicycle infrastructure systems, representation, and design evaluation strategies.

RESEARCH CONCEPT

on s, lon gte rm

va lue

The architecture and landscapes of urban postindustrial sites hold potential for providing quality of life amenities for urban dwellers. This research intends to support the literature that exists at the nexus of two areas of study: quality of life indicators and adaptive reuse. The Bingham site is a prototype for retrofitting urban post-industrial fabric as an armature for quality of life infrastructure.

SITE TIMELINE The stories embedded in urban post-industrial fabric provide a rich identity for neighborhoods around the world. The flavor of this identity ranges drastically from abandoned, derelict, and blight to renewal, heritage, and pride. The above timeline of the post-industrial Bingham property in St. Louis, Missouri illustrates the types of stories nestled in these proud sites.

This project weaves together adaptive reuse theory and quality of life evaluation strategy. These two bodies of work overlap when valued heritage structures are repurposed for the benefit of a local community and, thus, enhancing quality of life. This practice enriches local stories by adding another layer to the embedded industrial heritage. Adaptive reuse of post-industrial sites for the purpose of public and community use undergo semiotic shifts. These shifts foster attachments to place and feelings of connection. In the case of the Bingham proposal, the site is transformed from a dilapidated and underutilized site to an activated and cherished community place.

DATA : M A P P I N G T H E C O N T E X T Data offers insights about the selected district in the context of the rest of St. Louis city. Measurements and benchmarks record existing conditions in this district so trends are tracked over time. The Bingham site proposal provides infrastructure and programs to influence changes in benchmarks like poverty and park access. Data like english proficiency and diversity illustrate an ethnically-rich pocket of St. Louis, which can be celebrated through design.

In the district indicated, almost 20 acres is zoned industrial. The easment corridors account for about 7 acres of this district. Target a design opportunity to introduce adaptive reuse and liveable streets in this area.

DATA : P U B L I C A RT C H A L K WA L L The chalk wall data collection method was inspired by Candy Chang’s “Before I die...” walls. Her walls offer a way for people to contribute on their own time, while also generating a public conversation. In an effort to collect data for the Bingham site, the prompt is changed to “I wish this place...” The responses are then categorized as aesthetic, activity, built environment, or feelings. Examples include “woodshop classes” for activity, “had a fountain” for built environment, and “felt like home” as a response for feelings. The chalk wall contributions make their way into the site program and design. This fresh approach to data collection proved to be a venue for community members to dream about the future of Bingham.

“With more ways to share in public space, the people around us can not only help us make better places, they can help us become our best selves.” -Candy Chang

This diagram conceptually illustrates the spatial framework for integrating quality of life goals into design thinking for the Bevo Mill neighborhood and the Bingham site scale. The spatial infrastructure needs are illustrated at the neighborhood scale and the site scale with concepts for connected public spaces, local community nodes, gateways, greenspace, public art, and street trees.

I’m learning about welding from Carl today at the Alligator studios. I had a chat with Linh at the plaza while I was waiting for the film night to begin. Esther, Sally and I are planning a youth art exhibition at the gallery.

Esther + Sally

The Fleischers

We met the Fleischers while working in the community garden this morning. Carl is always a huge help when we are searching for the most obscure salvaged materials for the art exhitbition we are planning with Amar.

We love seeing Esther and Sally at the community garden on the weekends. Our little one enjoys the diversity of people here, especially when Linh has an exciting story to tell in the plaza.

I enjoy helping Esther and Sally find the most interesting materials from the salvage material warehouse. Amar has made so much progress with complex welding skills at the weekend workshops.

I met Amar today while waiting for the film night to start. Good kid. The Fleischers also spent some time with me because thier child cannot get enough of my stories!

Evaluate the quality of the social landscape with the quality of life genome framework. A feedback loop is established between urban redevelopment and local quality of life conditions.

The conceptual social landscape describes the qualities of community that underpin the quality of life narrative. Stronger and more robust social networks forge in neighborhoods boasting a diversity of places referred to as “ours” by the collective local residents. Social absorbancy is the capacity of a site to attract and hold activity. A place in the public realm that is activated during all day parts is considered to have high social absorbancy resulting in social capital.

INTERSECTION ART

S K AT E D OT

This drawing captures the essence of the passage of time existing around the stoic walls. The windows on the facade represent portals to the past by framing graphic advertisement art from the original owner, Alligator Oil Company, a raincoat manufacturer. The foreground shows an intersection art installation, a dynamic program of rotating art as the crew of resident artists change at the Alligator Studios. The intersection art celebrates the artists who invest their time and creative energy at Bingham. Programs like this one provide a venue for community and connection as well as a strong identity as an emerging St. Louis neighborhood.

The eastern gateway to Bingham Commons welcomes visitors with a multiple language wayfinding wall. Taking direction from the chalk wall feedback, the neighborhood skaters requested more sites to grind. A neighborhood skate park is located only a few blocks away. To expand their playground, this low wall serves as a skate dot, which is a site with a singe skate structure. This is a skatable feature that contributes to the neighborhood skate network. While skating or passing through, residents and visitors can reflect on the diversity in the area by reading the wayfinding information on the wall in multiple languages.

INDUSTRIAL RUINS The Bingham site historically featured a connector building between the large heritage building on the west and the warehouse to the east. This structure was a victim of arson in 1995. Currently, ruins of this structure remain on the site as a brick wall and open second storey attached to the warehouse building. The basement of this structure remains, leaving large hardscape surfaces on the site. The void this building left on the site is an opportuity for outdoor activity including make spaces, performance spaces, and this image is showing an example of an outdoor film night. The concept of the fifth building emerges through design on the site with an armature of the structure providing much needed shade for the space and the elevated landmark catwalk offering a pedestrian connection from the warehouse green roof to the second floor of the Alligator Studios building to the west. T H E L A N D M A R K C AT Wa L K The industrial metal grating catwalk structure is a threshhold between the streetscape and the plaza as it connects the Refab warehouse green roof on the east to the second floor of the Alligator Studios building on the west. The catwalk offers an exciting experience on the site, by allowing for elevated views and providing choices with accessible ramps and stairs.

BINGHAM COMMUNITY GARDEN

A C T I VAT E D S T R E E T S C A P E D E S I G N

The community garden is place for the diverse people of the North Bevo district to come together. The bounty from the community garden is processed and prepared in the adjacent community kitchen. Bingham Commons visitors and neighbors meet and enjoy the fare in the outdoor dining areas along the streetscape.

The streetscape is the main pedestrian spine at the Bingham site. Research highlights good practices when planning a streetscape. Design has the potential to activate a street, offer enticing views, and provide decision points. Shade, seating, visibility, friendly facade windows, shopping opportunities, and informal surveillence with balconies and porches are exemplary design strategies to breathe life back into an urban street.

TRAIL HUB EXPERIENCE

The 150 acre Tryon Farm is a regional destination for environmental education and outdoor recreation in the context of a residential community within conservation lands. The trail hub offers a landing area for visitors to learn about the ecosystems at the site and orient themselves to the five kilometers of trail options. The site functions as a passive area for a few visitors or as an active outdoor classroom for a group of students.

The fence functions as a way to identify the trail hub site. A sense of enclosure is a goal, not actual enclosure. The fence delineates the main arc along the street as well as the edge of the service drive. Visual and access permeability are encouraged and celebrated by this design element.

The haha walls have a variety of materials to consider, all with suitability for a retaining function. The gabion walls oďŹ&#x20AC;er several advantages for this site. First, the constructability is very approachable. Second, the material palette is consistent with existing waste water cell edging. And finally, strategically placed gabions can function as holding cells for cairn arrangements on the orientation plate and along the trails.

WINTER LANDSCAPE

These hardscape materials are suitable for the trail hub path and plaza. A material change is essential for creating a distinct place for conveyance and also for pause. The plaza space must also have a slight detention quality to achieve an ephemeral reflection pool.

A winter garden provides an engaging experience with planting materials at an unexpected time of the year. Interesting seedheads and branching habits are the features that create this eďŹ&#x20AC;ect.

The planting design strategy is a landscape architecture methodology inspired by Piet Oudolfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work. The plant types in each kit reflect a ratio developed by Oudolf in terms of prima donna plants, structure plants, filler plants, and scattering plants. The specific balance of these materials result in arresting displays year round. These modules are arranged in a stagger formation within the boundaries of the planting beds in the planting design, like a tile pattern. The way the kits fit together result in dynamic drifts of color and texture in the landscape.

Project for Public Spaces (PPS) developed “Making Indianapolis’ Monument Circle a Great Place” in April 2008. This document provides a framework for introducing enhancements and goals to Monument Circle in order to reach its potential as a regional destination and a great civic public space. PPS introduces these four categories providing a lens to measure the performance of placemaking at Monument Circle.

access + linkages

comfort + image

Visual and physical connections determine the quality of access and linkages in public space (Project for Public Spaces).

3

Successful public spaces offer comfort and a good first impression through perceptions of safety, cleanliness, and seating availability (Project for Public Spaces).

activity + use Public space with engaging activities offer people a reason to visit the place, stay longer, and return regularly (Project for Public Spaces).

sociability When people use a public space to meet friends, greet familiar faces, and feel comfortable chatting with a stranger, a place has high sociability resulting in sense of place and strong community (Project for Public Spaces).

Next steps. Evaluation findings provide grounding to support recommendations for Monument Circle: infrastructure redesign, public programming, and site management. In terms of infrastructure, the success of SPARK validates decisions already established to expand pedestrian public space and seating without causing serious issues to vehicular circulation or on-street parking. Overall, programming and site

management offer a variety of opportunities for visitors to engage with free and diverse activities that create community and connection to place. As the planning process continues toward the evolution of Monument Circle, the evaluation findings provide a reference point for future public space enhancements, programming, and site management proposals.
