CORE PRINCIPLES MAKING GREAT PLACES As urban designers, landscape architects, architects, and brand specialists, we are constantly working to create rich, compelling, and lasting environments that deliver on the promise of urban life. Whether they are post-industrial sites, underperforming districts, or new public spaces, our goal is to guide their design and transformation into vibrant, sustainable places. Beyond the trends, we believe these six core principles are at the heart of any successful planning and designing effort:

ADAPTABILITY

ACCESS

STEWARDSHIP

The only constant is change.

Connectivity amplifies the benefits for all.

Good plans make good neighbors.

IDENTITY

THE EXPERIENCE

ACHIEVABILITY

Design grows from the essence of place.

People fall in love with places, not principles.

Begin with the end in mind.

demographics, and climate over the long term. Great cities and sites are intricate mosaics that are embedded with the capacity to accommodate rich variety and unexpected change. We believe that the design process and planning frameworks should be nimble, creating the best possible places while being flexible about exact pathways to achieve shared goals. The long-range nature of much of our work requires consideration of changing context, whether it is environmental, economic, or institutional; our understanding of these forces, as well as the buildability of our proposals, establish our practitioners as committed partners in helping clients make decisions during the lifetime of the plan. When projects unfold over decades, it takes patience, vision, and backbone—all of which are captured in a flexible and durable framework for long-term development.

In the face of a rapidly shifting economy and new investments in regional transit, the City of Fremont, California, engaged Perkins+Will to prepare a plan for one of the largest contiguous industrial areas left in Silicon Valley. By defining success metrics rather than exact uses and building envelopes, the performance-based zoning framework developed for the plan sets the stage for the next generation of commercial and industrial enterprises and mixed-use residential neighborhoods, giving the City confidence in outcomes while retaining flexibility in the exact location and specification of development projects.

OUR POINT OF VIEW /

ACCESS CONNECTIVITY AMPLIFIES THE BENEFITS FOR ALL Great food. Parks and nature. Quality education. Employment. Healthcare. Housing. These benefits of city living benefit you only if you can get to them. Great cities provide physical and virtual connections, or “the infrastructure of opportunity,” for people of all ages, incomes, and abilities. And equitable access promotes a thriving economy and higher quality of life for everyone. Too often, plans and designs focus on either the physical realm or the policy context, without addressing or fully understanding how they weave together to create the built environment. Using new policy approaches and design technologies, Perkins+Will’s designers can better understand how the city works and, subsequently, how to better connect people with the places and opportunities that can enrich their lives. Through our understanding of the strength of public realm, the nuance of planning, and importance of implementation, our work not only remove barriers to health and opportunity but also makes truly great places available to an ever-increasing number of people.

The Yards (Southeast Federal Center) Forest City Washington / United States General Services Administration This decommissioned portion of the Washington Naval Yards is part of a larger effort to transform blighted areas along the Anacostia River waterfront into vibrant neighborhoods. The SEFC is already served by Washington’s Metro system and plans call for a new waterfront light-rail line and a 20-mile riverfront recreational trail. Our design envisions the restoration and conversion of historic buildings into housing; the creation of arts and community facilities; the development of up to eight new commercial buildings housing offices, retail, and entertainment complexes; and construction of a new 5.5-acre waterfront park. The park, designed by MPFP and opened in the summer of 2010, has, for the first time, created a public connection between the surrounding communities and the riverfront.

OUR POINT OF VIEW /

STEWARDSHIP GOOD PLANS MAKE GOOD NEIGHBORS Stewardship is a balancing act. It’s about developing in a way that respects the inherited conditions while making space for future growth. The best plans are sensitive to their environmental and community impact and work to develop site-responsive solutions. The definition of sustainability and responsible design is constantly evolving. Not long ago it may have been sufficient to plan for a reduction in building energy consumption; today we strive for communities that are “beyond carbonneutral.” Understanding the complexity of the interrelationship between the built environment and environmental, human, and social health is a central theme in the cutting-edge planning and design work we undertake daily.

OPPOSITE:

Blatchford Redevelopment City of Edmonton When the Edmonton City Centre Airport closed, city leaders seized on an opportunity to create a spectacular new neighborhood in the downtown. The resulting plan calls for much more than a traditional vibrant mixed use community; new streets and open-spaces are paired with strategies for a “beyond carbon neutral city.” A program for renewable energy generation, waste collection and incineration, decreased reliance on private automobiles, and other innovations will allow the district to offset carbon emissions from the wider city while creating a verdant district that is a destination for living, working, and recreation.

CITIES + SITES /

OUR POINT OF VIEW /

IDENTITY DESIGN GROWS FROM THE ESSENCE OF PLACE Every site has a story—that unique blend of physical, cultural, and historic character that differentiates this place from any other. That story is an important competitive asset. A deep understanding of a site’s identity should underlie every design decision. Identity is a complex concept. Creating and preserving identity in new and revitalized places can come in many forms: protecting historic landscapes and structures, understanding unique cultural relationships with place and landscape, and deep knowledge of local biomes. Paramount to making great cities and sites—beyond understanding what makes a project unique, is the ability to translate all of these things into a rich, compelling place that still feels firmly rooted in its context.

Bosphorus Landing Park Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge Located just north of Istanbul, at the base of the new Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, Bosphorus Landing Park offers visitors a unique cultural and educational opportunity while performing its most critical role as a living ecological machine. Seamlessly integrated with the museum also designed by Perkins+Will, this park anchors the bridge on two continents and has the power to connect people to Turkey’s rich history, to the natural landscape, and to each other. The vision for the park is to create a unique experience that celebrates Turkey’s past while looking toward the future.

OUR POINT OF VIEW /

THE EXPERIENCE PEOPLE FALL IN LOVE WITH PLACES, NOT PRINCIPLES Good design supports a pleasant and safe experience for all users. Great design creates a rich experience that unfolds over time, elevated by moments of discovery and beauty. These moments cannot be expressly designed or orchestrated, but great design sets the stage to accommodate a rich variety of experiences. Understanding the human experience and how to design at the full spectrum of perception allows us to create places that continue to engage, comfort, uplift, and surprise people, from the first impression to routine encounters.

From daily commutes enlivened by public art to large-scale events such as the Lantern Parade, which draws 10,000+ participants, the Atlanta BeltLine Corridor supports and inspires an array of unique and spontaneous experiences. Supporting public art is just one way that this core design framework sets the stage for a variety of experiences. Longtime residents and tourists alike can now explore corners of the city that were formerly hidden and inaccessible. This sense of exploration and discovery is part of what makes the Eastside Trail so beloved. Photo by: Christopher T. Martin

ACHIEVABILITY BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND

What good is a plan that sits on a shelf? The measure of success for our work is a plan that inspires action and leads to built projects. We bring our perspective as architects and designers to every planning effort in order to establish the vision, identify the means for implementation, and develop a framework for action. Beyond perspective, we also bring years of experience in what works and what does not—what may be an effective implementation approach for one project will not be appropriate for another, and often a wholly new technique will need to be devised. It takes deep knowledge of design and construction, a thorough understanding of local political and institutional landscapes, the ability to tell the full story of the place, and the flexibility to reimagine the development process to make these great ideas a reality.

Flexible frameworks for changing cities Cities are changing rapidly, but there’s nothing new about “smart cities.� In many ways, the Romans built smart cities, as did Haussman and Oglethorpe. As we confront the critical issues of twenty-first century urban living, how do we, as designers, incorporate new technologies and big data into the creative process of making great places? Whereas economics has driven the form of cities of past centuries, in recent decades proactive zoning and regulations have vastly improved the living conditions and the environmental impact of intense urbanism. As the world concentrates economically and culturally in urban settlements, the environmental performance of cities is an opportunity for innovation in the service of a liveable planet. We are tackling the trend of urban population growth by embracing density and prioritizing diversity, equality, and aging in place while creating solutions for the effects of climate change and sea-level rise. Our success stories show that the lowcarbon city of the future is also a vibrant, creative, and influential place to work and live.

Leading a multidisciplinary team including Campbell & Campbell, Perkins+Will created an urban design plan that envisions significantly increased density around transit nodes and along the key commercial corridors, while promoting context-sensitive, sustainable planning that enhances the public realm and the open-space, promotes preservation of the surrounding neighborhoods, and helps establish their identity, thus embodying the community’s vision for the area. Our plan provides clear guidelines and development standards for developers, landowners, and the City to guide and promote the future development of the commercial corridor and the Hollywood Civic Center.

QUIZANGA PROJECT CONFIDENTIAL CLIENT LOCATION Recife, Brazil AREA 15 square miles (4,000 hectares)

The Quizanga Project involves the master planning of approximately 15 square miles (4,000 hectares) of largely undeveloped agricultural and forest lands some 11.2 miles (18 kilometers) inland in Brasil. The site is situated around the intersection of the existing BR-408 major arterial road and a new north-south regional ring road. This new intersection and associated infrastructure investments provide the opportunity to consider the site as a new model for sustainable growth and as an alternative to the more common pattern of sprawl on the outskirts of existing conurbations. Furthermore, the new transportation network will provide easy access to a new urban territory.

The Perkins+Will team, along with consultant Hargreaves and Associates, team focused on preparing a vision for a high-quality, sustainable community with a rich variety of housing, office, cultural, and recreational facilities. The concept alternatives look at how best to place and organize development on the site, respond to climate conditions, realize and restore an urban landscape, amplify the project area’s best features, integrate with surrounding areas, and offer world-class community, all organized and supported by innovative sustainable transportation/mobility practices and infrastructure systems.

REVIVING PUBLIC SPACES


CITIES + SITES / REVIVING PUBLIC SPACES

Urban infrastructure that reclaims places for people When people take part in public spaces, they do more than support the economy—they develop a sense of belonging. We believe the public realm is critical to jumpstart economic growth, boost quality of life, and set the stage for civic engagement. Our plans are focused on creating new public spaces in forgotten and disconnected corners of the built environment. Immersed in the settings of our clients, we transform cities, waterfronts, city centers, educational and corporate campuses, and urban districts into vibrant, sustainable communities. What happens when abandoned railroads, industrialized riverfronts, gridlocked freeways, and channelized waterways—which historically created blight and barriers—are transformed into new civic spaces? By repurposing these lost assets, cities can shape greenspaces and transit connections that generate value and improve quality of life. Such investments do more than provoke change in the city’s form: they reconnect us with our history and redefine our way of life. Catalyst infrastructure changes the way we think about the places where we live.

Designing a signature public meeting ground creates new connections between Atlanta’s urban neighborhoods. Built on a loop of reclaimed railroad tracks, the Atlanta BeltLine is a 22-mile (35 kilometer) multi-modal corridor consisting of transit, a linear greenway, and multiuse trails. This groundbreaking public infrastructure effort connects 45 historic neighborhoods around the city’s urban core, catalyzing economic development as it circles the city. Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. hired our team as the lead designer and manager (with typology development input from Field Operations) for their Corridor Design, which provides a strategic framework to realize a functional, cohesive, and elegant urban design over time. Perkins+Will also designed the East Side Trail, the first constructed section of trail in the BeltLine.

The Eastside Trail provides a prime location for exercise and recreation while connecting both to existing public spaces, such as Piedmont Park and the Historic Fourth Ward Park, and to new parks developed as part of the Atlanta BeltLine. It is a spirited location that provides an environment for volunteer activities, sports, and philanthropic events such as charity races and walks. It adds to the cultural value of the City of Atlanta by serving as a venue for public art displays and the local music scene. By preserving the historical value of the abandoned railroad, this project has created a linear community, reflecting the best that is yet to come as a result of this comprehensive landscape infrastructure.

PUERTO RICO CAPITOL DISTRICT MASTER PLAN SUPERINTENDENT OF THE CAPITOL LOCATION San Juan, Puerto Rico AREA 80 acres (32 hectares) AWARDS 2012, Award of Excellence, Georgia ASLA 2012, Honor Award, AIA Georgia Chapter

The Vision Plan and Design Standards created by Perkins+Will will guide the transformation of the Puerto Rico Capitol District into a mixed-use government district with a successful tourism component. Like the 1901 McMillan Plan that created the National Mall in Washington, D.C., the Vision Plan will ensure that the historic Capitolio and its District will be a popular destination and a source of pride for generations of Puerto Ricans to come. This plan reorganizes the public realm along the two main axes of the Capitolio building. A new pedestrian mall, which extends from the Capitolio steps to the San Juan Bay, creates muchneeded open-space for formal and informal gatherings. The Paseo de Covadonga, a parallel street below Ponce de LĂŠon Avenue, is returned to its original function of a paseo, or a pedestrian promenade, to strengthen the east-west axis within the District.

RESEARCH / TORONTO’S LOST STREAMS PERKINS+WILL INNOVATION INCUBATOR PROGRAM

As the flooding event of July 2013 illustrated, Toronto’s stormwater infrastructure is outdated and unable to cope with extreme weather events, which are expected to be more intense and frequent. Not only did this event cost the City more than $60 million and insurance companies more than $850 million—making it the most costly natural disaster in Ontario history—it demonstrated that the established methods of designing for stormwater management no longer meet the current and future needs of the city. A major contributing factor to this flooding is that, as the city has grown, it has covered over a diverse territory of small creeks, rivers, and tributaries that historically moderated stormwater flow. Since the recent flooding, there is notable interest from the public to update infrastructure

Documentary filmmakers, environmentalists, newspaper editorials, and design professionals have Using the criteria that were established on page 13 of this document for what contributes to a good daylighting project mitigation potential, all called for(floodaction on education and engagement potential, habitat creation potential, public space potential, political and economic feasibility, and economic opportunity), it is possible to grade the matter. three optionsthis for daylighting in Toronto that have the most promise; Taddle Creek, Garrison Creek, and Wilket Creek. As Garrison Creek has been explored in depth (see previous page for Brown & Storey’s plan) and Taddle Creek has exceptional education and engagement potential due to its location on University of Toronto campus, we will focus the remaining sections on opportunities for daylighting this creek.

and address this issue. There is a suite of practices that are used to control stormwater runoff, “hard” infrastructure design, such as for stormwater and sewer system, and “soft” infrastructure solutions, such as bioretention, rain gardens, and green roofs. However, daylighting could be added to this suite, and, if done right, could provide many advantages that these other practices cannot, such as the creation of public amenity and community engagement. To this end, this research explored best practices around the world for stream daylighting and how and where daylighting could occur in Toronto. It looked primarily at site-scale interventions that address the aforementioned issues while enhancing the public realm and offering

URBAN AGRICULTURE PLAN LOS ANGELES RIVER REVITALIZATION CORP LOCATION Los Angeles, California AREA 660 acres (267 hectares)

The Urban Agriculture Plan was conceived as a means to create a healthy and sustainable neighborhood by creating a single green planning framework that included multiple goals. The process and the resulting plan are assisting the Los Angeles River Revitalization Corporation and other stakeholders to facilitate responsible community and economic development focused on environmental and food-based activities in the study area. The study area coincides directly with the extents of the Cornfield Arroyo Seco Specific Plan (CASP). The area is currently characterized by unevenly utilized industrial and commercial properties as well as some residential properties. The Los Angeles River runs through the study area. A series of on-the-ground site visits and photo documentation sessions accompanied data-based research. The Perkins+Will team gathered international case studies of successful urban agricultural typologies and best practices. Throughout the process, plan developments were reviewed and discussed with technical advisory and key stakeholder committees. In addition to soliciting input from residents through local elementary school family surveys, we hosted several outreach meetings throughout the process to ensure community concerns and core values were represented as part of this plan.

Environments that support health and healthy living At Perkins+Will, we focus on crafting restorative spaces that have tangible benefits for the people that use them. From quiet contemplative gardens to large-scale health districts, we design spaces to that encourage healing and healthy living. Bringing together sustainable healthcare architecture and planning with healthy community design, our Health District concept is centered around the idea that healthcare environments should promote health. A place where it’s easy to walk between parks, restaurants, and shops, or to escape to a quiet, natural setting for some fresh air. Through coordinated planning, a Health District can create a more connected, cohesive community that actually supports healthy behaviors like walking. A District Plan enables coordination of land-use and transportation investment decisions and proposes an inviting and connected public realm with safe streets and paths for pedestrian and bike activity.

PERKINS+WILL RESEARCH JOURNAL 2014 / VOL 06.02

50 Healthcare is changing rapidly: new models of care are being tested, new partnerships are being formed, and new technologies are shifting the role of the patient. In this time of sea change, planning is of incredible value. Hospitals and health systems that plan today will be wellpositioned to implement transformative change as the industry transitions to performance-based models. Health District Planning is a nascent planning paradigm that can be expected to grow and be refined as more communities, hospitals, and health systems adapt its framework to plan for a healthier future.

A Health District is a place where investments are targeted to improve population health outcomes and to inspire healthy behaviors.

We propose a new planning paradigm for healthcare called Health District Planning. Best practices from various case studies and related evidence from public health and healthy community design research are synthesized into a four-part framework—the 4 P’s of Health District Planning: (1) population health, (2) place, (3) partnerships, and (4) performance. The goal is to offer a guideline for planning the Health Districts of the future. This report is designed to highlight synergies and enable collaborations toward improved community health. Making community voices heard is a first, necessary step. Many cities now have venues for ongoing discussions

WYCKOFF HEALTH IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT WYCKOFF HEIGHTS MEDICAL CENTER LOCATION Brooklyn, New York AREA 1 mile radius around hospital building

Perkins+Will is assisting Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in a transformative planning effort designed to improve population health within the Bushwick/ Ridgewood neighborhood of New York City. Planning for Wyckoff’s transformation is focused at three scales: within the hospital, on Wyckoff’s campus, and in the district that is Wyckoff’s primary catchment area. In addition to being simply in close proximity. The 1-mile radius around the hospital building that defines the project area serves as home not only to the hospital but also to nearly 85% of its patients. By defining itself at the center of a Health Improvement District, Wyckoff is refocusing its efforts from traditional downstream healthcare services to prevention and improvement of population health in its community. As the changing healthcare model is putting greater focus on wellness, prevention, and community health, Perkins+Will is helping Wyckoff Heights Medical Center understand the physical, socioeconomical, and abstract makeup of their community to identify gaps between the services they are providing and actual community health needs. This will allow the hospital to refocus resources and get ahead of preventable issues, increase awareness, reimagine the hospital experience, and promote healthy community living.

RESEARCH / ATLANTA STREETCAR TRACKING CENTRAL ATLANTA PROGRESS

The building of the modern Atlanta Streetcar represents the first step in the dawning of a new era for transit­— one that has the potential to transform how we get around our community. The City of Atlanta, in partnership with MARTA and the business community, has invested more than $99 million to bring streetcars back to the streets of Atlanta. The first route for the new system­— an east-west loop connecting downtown Atlanta with the Sweet Auburn District—opened for service on December 30, 2014. This is Phase One of a grand vision for the Atlanta Streetcar, which, as it develops, will draw new transit riders, reduce vehicle emissions, reduce automobile dependency, increase transit ridership across the larger regional transit network, and provide myriad other benefits to the area and the city. This tracking system features three components: (1) a comprehensive set of performance measures used to define the benefits; (2) a multimedia, map-based slide show summarizing the project scope and performance metrics; and (3) an interactive online map (the Streetcar Metrics Map) that allows for a more detailed and personalized view of the streetcar area and associated project data. The Atlanta Streetcar is an excellent example of a successful transit system and a benchmark for how that success is measured.

At the heart of the Duke University Medical Center, the Perkins+Will designed Duke Medicine Pavilion welcomes patients and visitors with a new, elevated, 20,000 square foot (1,860 square meter) plaza. This elegant space connects the three surrounding buildings and provides opportunities for gathering and respite beyond the hospital walls. The entire site is designed to create a calming experience through simplicity of forms and color selection. The focal point of the space is a specimen Japanese Maple tree that sits on one side of an ellipse precast wall. Within this ellipse, a gathering space invites informal meetings and outdoor dining. Three rows of giant bamboo planters accentuate the shape of the space and reflect the verticality of the buildings. On the south end of the plaza, a canopy pitches water onto a special band in the plaza surface which allows for infiltration to the drainage system. The plaza strategically conceals all mechanical equipment underneath it, including several large emergency generators, and creates instead a beautiful, valuable space for all to enjoy.

In all of our work we strive to create places that advance the physical and mental health of the people who experience them. This is particularly important when our client’s primary function is as a caretaker.

With its goal vision of creating a playful, positive, healing environment that fosters trust and growth in children with both typical and special needs, the design project was a perfect springboard for research.

The commission for Camp Southern Ground in Georgia presented a unique opportunity: with its goal vision of creating a playful, positive, healing environment that fosters trust and growth in children with both typical and special needs, the design project was a perfect springboard for research. We engaged our internal Innovation Incubator Grant program to fund an investigation into the needs of children with autism spectrum disorder (an important user group at the camp) and to understand how to best apply these lessons to the built environment. Over the course of four months we analyzed existing design guidelines and play spaces in order to create a hierarchy of importance for designing for children who fall along this spectrum. We were then able to translate our conclusions into design guidelines for Camp Southern Ground. These included everything from the way the site was sequenced to providing spaces and activated the different senses individually as well as spaces for respite and decompression. Future research projects and commissions will look to build on this knowledge to advance the practice of designing healthy spaces for people of all ages and abilities.

Located on small wooded knoll surrounded on two sides by wetlands, the Willson Hospice site is designed to preserve as much of the campus as possible while capitalizing on its value through a diverse network of trails and boardwalks. Designed by an all-Perkins+Will team, gardens and architectural pods are woven together to provide the best experience, inside and outside. The approach to the hospice is through a winding wooded drive that opens to reveal a healing garden filled with medicinal plants as the forefront to the architecture. To the north, a small outdoor chapel embraces the surrounding wooded grove. To the south, a path network winds through a series of healing gardens and openspaces. The most significant of these gardens is centered on the chapel building pod. A specimen Live Oak provides the focus from the chapel garden and beyond.


The grounds of the hospice provide gardens for rest and reflection, spaces for gathering or solitude— all within a peaceful setting where built and natural palettes meet like fingers intertwined.

Resource strategies for the next generation of urban dwellers As designers and planners, sustainability guides every aspect of our practice. With a vision the moves beyond simply reducing environmental impact, sustainable design seeks to realign the relationship between humans and nature. From projects that make the public realm greener—parks, greenways, and streetscapes—to large-scale systems for sustainably managed districts, we deliver resource strategies for the next generation of urban dwellers. As a practice, we believe sustainability includes not only environmental outcomes but also health, community well-being, and economic outcomes. Therefore we strive to integrate resiliency measures into every facet of planning. With recent hurricanes and flooding in mind, Perkins+Will is focused on developing better protections for people, properties, and communities, even as we reduce the amount of natural resources expended in our daily lives.

DOCKSIDE GREEN VANCITY ENTERPRISES LOCATION Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada AREA Formerly industrial waterfront property: 15 acres (6 hectares); Dockside: 1.3 million square feet (120,774 square meters) LEED ® NC and ND Platinum AWARDS 2009, Special Jury Award, Architectural Institute of British Columbia 2009, Top Ten Green Projects, AIA Committee on the Environment (COTE) 2008, Excellence in Urban Sustainability, GLOBE Awards for Environmental Excellence

Dockside Green, the largest development in the history of Victoria, British Columbia, involves the reclamation and redevelopment of 15 acres (6 hectares) of formerly industrial waterfront property. Dockside includes 1.3 million square feet (120,774 square meters) of commercial, residential, live/work, and light-industrial uses. With a LEED Platinum target for each building on site, this project is a global showcase for large-scale integrated sustainable development. In 2009, Dockside was awarded LEED for Neighborhood Development Platinum, making it one of a handful of projects worldwide that have received this certification. From the project’s inception, our team, working with all stakeholder groups to create an exciting new community, realized the unique opportunity the development represented. Perkins+Will lead an interdisciplinary team, including PWL Partnership, to develop the vision for a neighborhood that creates economic opportunities while promoting environmental responsibility and healthy and dynamic urban living. As a result, the Dockside Green Development was selected as a model “Climate Positive Development” by the Clinton Climate Initiative, setting a compelling environmental and economic example for cities to follow.

CITIES + SITES / ADVANCING SUSTAINABILITY

The site is oriented around a greenway running parallel to the coast with a village plaza providing a focal point at the western edge of the development. Mixed-use residential towers to the west reach up to ten stories while the majority of development is three to seven stories tall. Waste resulting from one use will provide the nutrients for other uses.


In addition to the master plan, we have completed several phases of Dockside, including Phase 1: Synergy, the highest-scoring LEED Platinum Certified project in the world at the time of certification; Phase 2: Balance, also LEED Platinum Certified; and Phase CI1: Inspiration, which earned the highest LEED score for a Core and Shell building.

RESEARCH / URBAN TREES PERKINS+WILL RESEARCH

Trees play a vital role in urban areas as green infrastructure. A challenge for urban tree planting is the provision of sufficient soil volume to support healthy mature trees. Perkins+Will helped the City of Gainesville, Florida revise their landscape ordinance to establish a minimum soil volume standard to promote a healthy urban forest. A minimum soil volume of 700 CF was established for street trees, and then this standard was applied to tree planting documented for the Ninth Street Streetscape in Gainesville. The design incorporates several features, such as wide planting areas and underground Silva Cells, to ensure these trees reach a grand mature size. At our office in Atlanta we used a different strategy to maximize soil volume for trees, with a wooden deck that floats above the tree roots below. Future generations will appreciate the broad spreading tree canopies shading our projects.

BOSPHORUS LANDING PARK CONFIDENTIAL CLIENT LOCATION Istanbul, Turkey AREA 96 acres (39 hectares)

Located just north of Istanbul, Turkey, the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge and its remarkable setting present an extraordinary opportunity: a new public park anchoring the bridge on two continents with the power to connect people to Turkey’s rich history, to the natural landscape, and to each other. Perkins+Will worked passionately to create a vision for the park that would be both respectful of Turkish history and yet forward-looking, a unique and memorable place with strong roots and a compelling future. The design concept integrates three key themes: Connecting Places, Performance Landscape, and Enriched Experiences. Together these themes create a rich narrative and establish the framework for an architecturally integrated park experience that can only be found along the mouth of the Bosphorus Strait.

RESEARCH / RESOURCE INFINITY LOOP PERKINS+WILL RESEARCH JOURNAL 2014 / VOL 06.01

The Resource Infinity Loop is a way to re-envision the role of human beings in our current overly mechanized urban settings. The use of urban wastewater as a renewable and reliable resource for urban farming closes the water and nutrient loop within the urban environment. Largely unexplored and unexploited in the technologically advanced economies of the world—but used to great advantage in some parts of the world—this Resource Loop plugs in humans as an integral part of the ecosystem by capturing and directing nutrients in human waste for urban farming, constantly renewing the food and energy resources being consumed. The Resource Infinity Loop reclaims used water through ecologically advanced treatment processes and reuses it in food production: constructed wetlands, aquaculture ponds, and urban farms successfully create decentralized resource-recovery ecosystems within the city, as an alternative to existing centralized mechanical systems. The Resource Infinity Loop is a cost-effective, low-energy, resilient approach to the usual expensive, energy-intensive infrastructure for water, food, and energy needs and has the notable capacity to self-renew in the wake of disruptions. We can redefine the fundamental ways in which we plan and build our cities by allowing the infinite resource loop of used water to feed our cities.

Perkins+Will’s new Atlanta office presented the opportunity to transform an existing building in the heart of Midtown by both reusing the building’s worthy assets and correcting its signature faults. With the project recently certified LEED Platinum with the highest score ever recorded in the northern hemisphere, its success suggests that reuse and renovation can be central to the concept of sustainability. While it earned accolades for excellence in building design, one of the project’s most profound features is its renewed connection to the street. The entrance to the original 1980s building featured a circular driveway connecting to a street-level parking bay—a car-centric orientation more typical of suburban office parks. The site redesign encloses and repurposes that parking level as a spectacular new space for the Museum of Design Atlanta and replaces the driveway with a new civic plaza. This outdoor space invites the public to occupy a comfortable, tree-shaded plaza and provides access to the museum, library, and Perkins+Will’s new office. Additional gathering space is provided on the fifth-floor roof terrace, where healing herb gardens set the stage for city views.

TRANSFORMING THE WATERFRONT


CITIES + SITES / transforming the waterfront

A new approach to the water’s edge Waterfront transformation is part of the global movement to rethink and revitalize former industrial and brownfield sites into places for recreation, entertainment, working, and living. Perkins+Will is playing a leading role in creating and realizing these new and renewed areas—from master plans for waterfront districts to designing new developments, parks, and attractions that celebrate the water’s edge. Major waterfront projects demand more than a talent for design: they require extensive expertise in the entitlements process and experience with public/private partnerships. Because we recognize the importance of working waterfronts and the continued industrial and commercial use of our waterways, many of our plans integrate these uses into the urban fabric in a harmonious way, maintaining the excitement, activity, and economic lifeblood of working waterfronts. By bringing the diversity of the city right to the water’s edge, the waterfront can be the community’s meeting place, a center for arts and entertainment, and a focal point for celebration and inspiration.

The Waterfront Botanical Garden Master plan proposes an incredible transformation for the city of Louisville by creating a global icon on a 24 acre (10 hectare) former landfill. The design focuses around three key frameworks of Transformation, Discovery, and Health that create an overlay of unique experiences throughout the gardens. These frameworks begin to form stories that guide our design and appeal to different audiences. From children to researchers, from educators to chefs, from gardeners to artists, the garden offers a story that will resonate with people of different backgrounds and interests. The garden strives to set precedents in sustainability via spaces such as the proposed Education Pavilion that is being designed by Perkins+Will around the Living Building Challenge and the Water Filtration Garden that will clean greywater through a series of beautiful water gardens. With high ambition and expectation, Louisville’s Waterfront Botanical Gardens is being designed as a catalyst for the continued revitalization of Louisville.

BOGACAY CREEK MASTERPLAN CONFIDENTIAL CLIENT LOCATION Antalya, Turkey AREA 14,300 acres (58 square kilometers / 5,800 hectares)

Our vision for the Bogaçay Creek Master Plan was to create an environment that moved beyond resiliency to adapt and improve conditions in Antalya for present and future generations. By employing hard infrastructure and environmental landscape strategies, our design reduces flood risk by: (1) Making efficient use of land at risk of flooding by matching a mix of uses with levels of risk; (2) Working with the natural topography for cost-effective and sustainable communities; (3) Stacking vulnerable uses over robust uses to create active frontages and positive public realms at the street level; and (4) Providing new outdoor amenity spaces, areas of biodiversity, and new recreational uses in areas of higher flood risk. The West of Antalya is enclosed by three creeks: Bogaçay, Candir, and Karaman. These three creeks provide storm water drainage that, combined with the mountainous terrain, poses a risk of flooding. Various strategies—from stone fortifications to embankment works—had been attempted to mitigate the flood risk. Yet, recent flooding in the basin has demonstrated that traditional measures no longer provide the holistic solutions necessary to manage the problem. Bogaçay Creek needed something beyond the standard responses such as flood defenses, barriers, and elevated roadways that can leave cities and communities fractured and cut-off from natural resources. It needed a hydraulic strategy to protect the community, and create a sense of place, and develop an iconic design that establishes Antalya as an eco-tourism destination. Given our experience with similar projects, Perkins+Will was selected to deliver a master plan that addressed both these larger issues as well as small-scale individual community developments. Our unique perspective on macro- and micro- considerations in our largescale landscape and urban-scale master plans sets us apart.


124

CITIES + SITES / transforming the waterfront

We approached the process of designing the Bogaรงay Creek Master Plan from multiple fronts. At its core, the project needed to address the flood risk and infrastructural requirements while remaining economical. Another central aspect of the project was the creation of a marina to activate the waterfront along Bogaรงay Creek. The Bogaรงay Creek Master Plan embodies our standards for innovative, responsible, and sustainable design. It creates a solution that not only protects what exists today, but facilitates the creation of an iconic architectural and landscape development that establishes Antalya as an ecotourism destination.

MOCOCA BEACH HINES DEVELOPMENT LOCATION Caraguatatuba, Brazil AREA 30 acres (12.5 hectares)

With a significant natural preserve and numerous limitations on development, the Hines development on Mococa Beach was an exercise in creative master planning. Working closely with the Perkins+Will team of architects, our team developed a plan that allows for unobstructed ocean views for all residents while providing a wide range of amenities for guests, including sculptural playgrounds, sports courts, and open lawn areas. Long, continuous boardwalks connect housing blocks to both pristine, natural preserves and white sand beaches. Pockets of usable green space break up a substantial parking requirement, maintaining the development’s natural feel and ecology sensitivity. A chic waterfront pool, club, and native garden are sited on the property’s high point, providing unmatched views of the Brazilian coast.

FREMONT WARM SPRINGS COMMUNITY PLAN CITY OF FREMONT LOCATION Fremont, California AREA 850 acres (344 hectares)

In 2014, the City Council adopted the Fremont Warm Springs Community Plan, the culmination of five years of work to envision a new transit-served, innovative mixed-used community and put in place the policies, zoning, and guidelines needed for success. Perkins+Will led the consulting teams focused first on a recovery strategy after the 5.4 million-square foot (501,680-square meter) NUMMI plant closing, then on the catalyst potentials of TESLA’s new manufacturing facility and a new BART station to trigger innovation investment. The 850-acre (344-hectare) Fremont Warm Springs Community Plan area is one of the largest contiguous industrial areas left within Silicon Valley. As such, the adopted plan and implementing materials set the stage for the next generation of commercial and industrial enterprises and mixed-use residential neighborhoods—setting Fremont apart as one of the most enlightened, forward-looking Bay Area communities.


138

CITIES + SITES / NURTURING INNOVATION

One of the goals of the community plan is to promote the active use of public space, including sidewalks and plazas, in Fremont’s commercial centers. This can be achieved by placing active uses on the ground floor along key streets (or facing plazas or public spaces), and by designing outdoor spaces to accommodate dining, organized activities, and special events.

INNOVATE ABQ MASTER PLAN UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO LOCATION Albuquerque, New Mexico AREA 1,300 acres (525 hectares)

Albuquerque is doing something audacious: it is building a rainforest in the middle of a desert. However, instead of millions of plant and animal species, this rainforest will be a place for researchers, innovators, and entrepreneurs to thrive. It is an ecosystem for innovation, a place where Albuquerque can grow its own talent. In a reflection of the work of author Victor W. Hwang (2012), the goal of Innovate ABQ is not to script the creation and evolution of new ideas but rather to create a rich and flexible environment that allows innovation to be born and thrive in unpredictable ways. This concept is founded on principles of trust, collaboration, and experimentation. Innovate ABQ is a core site that is a catalyst for this district. Founded on a 7-acre (2.83-hectare) former First Baptist Church site purchased by University of New Mexico in 2014, it is envisioned as a hub for research and innovation activities and programs throughout the region. Perkins+Will led the planning effort along with local partners including Dekker/Perich/Sabatini. The plan for Innovate ABQ—a Development Framework —is aimed at promoting flexibility to the greatest extent possible. Rather than prescribe a specific, absolute end result, it puts into place a vision and clear, flexible framework within which opportunities for both innovation and development can emerge organically, respond to change over time, capitalize on the resources of the region, and ultimately become a place where innovation will thrive.

RESORA MASTER PLAN NEW COMMUNITIES, LLC LOCATION Albany, Georgia AREA 1,638 acres (663 hectares)

New Communities is a nationally recognized grassroots organization that has worked for more than 50 years to empower African-American families in southwest Georgia and advocate for social justice. They hired Perkins+Will to develop a master plan for their newly-acquired, 1,638-acre (663-hectare) former plantation near Albany. The property’s gently rolling fields, orderly orchards, and mossdraped Cypress stands surround an 85-acre lake, antebellum mansion, guest houses, and working barns. But the site was organized for a different time, a relic of the Old South in need of a fresh vision. Drawing on Perkins+Will’s assistance in storytelling, strategic planning, architecture, and brand design, the master plan reframes the historic site as the beginning of a more just and equitable story. The plan connects people to the land, to their history, and to each other in new ways. As it grows into a model for viable, sustainable rural development, Resora will be a place where, as the group’s founder Shirley Sherrod puts it, “we can both farm the land and also nurture the minds of people.”

CAMPUS SITE DESIGN COLLEGE OF COASTAL GEORGIA LOCATION Brunswick, Georgia AREA 193 acres (78 hectares)

Founded in 1961, the College of Coastal Georgia is located on 193 acres (78 hectares) in the coastal city of Brunswick, Georgia. From its current semester enrollment peak of over 3,000 students, the College plans academic and infrastructure improvements to accommodate some 10,000 students in the future. Repositioning the campus to take advantage of existing site features, our team used this opportunity to help develop a flexible framework for future campus growth. The site design is centered on a campus green that replaces an existing parking lot and a series of entry plazas that anchor the lawn. The plazas provide much-needed outdoor activity space for campus events, informal dining, studying, and social interaction. Through the use of native vegetation and preservation of existing site features, Perkins+Will was able to create a beautiful and sustainable landscape that speaks to the unique character of this coastal Georgia town.

Innovation Square is an award-winning urban redevelopment project that transforms 12 underutilized blocks in Gainesville, Florida, into a walkable urban research district that capitalizes on the entrepreneurial energy of the University of Florida. For decades, an aging hospital and its surface parking lots created a gulf between the University and the revitalized downtown area. Working with the University, the Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency, Shands Healthcare, the City of Gainesville, private development groups, and diverse stakeholders, Perkins+Will created a long-term development plan that projects future building programs with a flexible urban framework as well as the detailed design for the public realm that is at the heart of the district. At the heart of the 60-acre (24-hectare) Innovation Square, a pedestrian-friendly greenway connects the community and promotes creative collision and sustainability. This walkable, high-density district is already attracting researchers, students, and start-ups with lively spaces in which to live, work, play, and collaborate.

The redesigned 9th Street is defined as a pedestrian friendly environment with limited vehicular access. The introduction of similar materials and patterns from building edge to building edge defines the space. This definition indicates a change in the use, movement, and intent of this space within the district.

POWER DISTRICT GAINESVILLE COMMUNITY REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY LOCATION Gainesville, Florida AREA 60 acres (24 hectares)

Former industrial sites have particular challenges, such as aging infrastructure, poor connectivity to surrounding areas, and real or perceived environmental issues. Such sites, however, also have special opportunities, including large, adaptable buildings and, very often, prime locations within cities. The 60 acre (24 hectare) Power District is envisioned as a new destination in the City, with mixed-use development, increased density, and new public space. The Power District Redevelopment Plan aims to achieve this vision while preserving the distinct industrial character of the area, focusing on creating space for local businesses and startups and metering the pace of development with a parcel-level strategy that will allow for small-scale and incremental redevelopment. Old buildings will be repurposed and new buildings will infill around new plazas and a preserved community garden. In this way, the City of Gainesville intends to grow in place, create new economic opportunities, and establish a new international model for how the needs of urban density can be balanced with the finer-grained character of existing communities.
