Immunizing the Inner City

This advanced design project focuses one particular neighborhood in downtown Fresno to understand the decay of the inner city (even in the face of recent downtown redevelopment) and propose solutions that correspond to the present and future needs of communities in this area.

INDIVIDUAL PROJECT

This project proposes to use this tenuous uncertainty around the High Speed Rail as an opportunity for Fresno- the largest city in the Central Valley- to rethink its development strategy and lead the way in sensitive urban design and much needed locally-focused economic development at neighborhood and regional scales.

Updated plans for the High Speed Rail line

Originally planned as a lifeline for the region- connecting Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay Area to Los Angeles and San Diego via the Central Valley, recent project reviews have forced legislators to dramatically narrow the scope of the much anticipated High Speed Rail line. The reliance of the Central Valley this deus ex machina to boost development in the region has led to inconsiderate, speculative planning and unwarranted displacement, with recent changes sparking debate and putting development projects in a limbo. 04

Amtrak/BNSF Freight Line

My investigation into the American context began with the search for midrange “second cities”, with a slowing economy and history of marginalization. California’s Central Valley region matched these parameters broadly. Recent discourse about the Valley have revolved around the proposed high speed trail (HSR) project. A major shift earlier this year curtailed the scope of the project to the shorter Merced-Bakersfield stretch, miring the project and associated development with uncertainty. To understand the impact of this confusion, this project is focused on the largest city in this area- Fresno. Fresno is crisscrossed by a number of major infrastructure pieces- from freight train lines and state highways. While Amtrak currently runs on one of these rail lines, the HSR will partly run on another. Infrastructure in Fresno has been called as the city’s own “Maison-Dixon line”, systematically cutting off downtown from the rest of the city- causing inner city neighborhoods to perish over time.

Building up the lot

Typical Chinatown block

Typical lots of Chinatown

Chinatown is a particularly unique downtown neighborhood, wedged in between CA99 and the rail line. Known as “The 18 blocks of Chinatown”- it is currently home to about 100300 people. Chinatown is defined by a strong central axismarked by Kern and F St. It is bounded by major connectors, while the proposed HSR station is centered on a shifted axis. The underlying block pattern is typical of this region relatively large blocks, with a mid-block alley running through. Chinatown has an interesting lot pattern- lot widths are a multiple of the original 25ʼ, with most having been combined over time to result in a rich variety of lot sizes. With the advent of the HSR proposal- more lots have been consolidated for larger projects- especially along the rail line itself.

Social + Green Infra

Design toolkit

This project considers the uncertainty regarding this major infrastructure decision as an opportunity to question the kind of speculative development that has been typical of Fresno. This unique moment in history may be used to reevaluate the future of this Chinatown- a dying neighborhood which has historically acted as the haven of the socially excluded. The design toolkit for this project relies heavily on the infill development of vacant/underutilized lots, especially leveraging mid-block alleys- many of which are still used today as service lanes. Other important features include providing much needed social infrastructure and quality public open spaces. 05

This project is proposed to be developed over 3 strategic phases. Phase 1, titled “Preservation” focuses on the historic core of Chinatown; Phase 2 “Intensification” looks at development along the HSR line and Mariposa St axis while Phase 3 “Contribution” addresses the fringes of the Chinatown and its connection and relevance to adjoining neighborhoods.

DEVELOPMENT PHASES

Phase 1: Preservation

Phase 2: Intensification

The primary goal of Phase 1 is to shore up the historic core by filling up underutilized lots in the four blocks around the intersection of Kern and F St. Since this neighborhood lacks local residents, this phase focuses on adding in housing and

building a community. This phase also involves retaining a large vacant lot of land in the eastern block to act as an outdoor multipurpose space for open-air markets and swapmeets and for adjoining to retail to occasionally spill over onto.

Phase 2 concentrates on expanding development towards Fresno St. It presumes the construction of an elevated HSR line on a viaduct, as opposed to the current proposal of atgrade tracks. Two key pieces of development comprise this phase- along the Mariposa St axis, and under the viaduct itself. Phase 3 focuses on connecting back to the neighborhoods around- specifically by providing social support and recreational facilities. Phase 3 also focuses on adding residential uses along G St towards Ventura, while adding more industrial functions under the HSR Viaduct. A key feature of this phase is a freeway cap over CA99, created between Tulare and Kern Sts comprising of recreational space, bounded by institutional community functions and commercial built uses.

Through carefully phased development and sensitive urban infill, this project hopes to alleviate a condition of hopelessness prevalent in this and other downtown neighborhoods of Fresno. This project strives to build a community of people to bolster the sense of stewardship over much of the public realm in Chinatown, while creating better and defensible public spaces for all.

EDISON

One important question that was posed during the project review presentation was regarding the continued need for such a neighborhood. To paraphrase, why should Chinatown be saved at all? When there isn’t really a present community, what is the point of preserving and building up this neighborhood? Why not simply relinquish it to the forces of speculative real estate development that have already begun their efforts by consolidating lots adjacent to the railway line?

I believe that it is important for neighborhoods such as Chinatown to continue to exist, for the often overlooked role they play in a city. Chinatown has historically been the haven of those ostracized from mainstream society because of ethnicity or race (with an overlay of class). While many of the original ethnic communities prospered over time and have left Chinatown for quaint suburbs, it is still important for at least some neighborhoods to welcome people who trying to get their foot in the door of a large city. It is not the people of Chinatown for whom it needs to be saved, but rather for the kind of people it could help foster and provide economic opportunity to- while they spend a generation or two here on their way to better things.

how mobility networks, pedestrian connections, open space systems, and vibrant spaces would come together and define downtown Oakland in the year 2100. From these concepts we developed a LEGO program for our model and have been playing Oakland 2100 with community members throughout downtown Oakland. Through these events, people have shown us what types of uses could go where and how they wished their downtown could look and feel in the future.

Oakland 2100 is a game where people work together to imagine the future of downtown Oakland. Players navigate trade-offs, prioritize and place investments and engage other players in the type of negotiations that happen in the building of cities every day. During the game, players leverage the power of art, design, and play to shape a vision of Oakland that is built by and for Oaklanders, while learning about the complexities that exist in long-range planning, design, development, community engagement and financing. The creation of the game started by asking people around the city what they wished for the future of Oakland. As part of the UC Berkeley Urban Design Studio in the Spring of 2019, we began to analyze the planning and design that needed to happen in order to achieve the many wonderful things we all want for our city. We proposed concepts for

Oakland 2100 is an independent, educational game about urban design, Oakland, and land use planning. One of the intentions is to make available the final products from the game in hopes that it will help uncover trends, shared community desires, and potential points of conflict. However, much of the longer-term impact of the game is meant to be less tangible. Ultimately, Oakland 2100 is a platform for co-learning, conversation, and capacity building – benefits that are difficult to measure, but hopefully contribute to giving participants a better understanding of how the real-world rules are currently played and perhaps a greater sense of agency to change these rules in the future. Oakland 2100 is a space where people can test, prototype, and shape the way their city could grow and develop.

(Paraphrased from the text for the exhibit posters) 11


The program for Oakland 2100 is essentially tied to a projected increase in population over the next 80 years and hopes to successfully accommodate this influx of people. We studied vibrant neighborhoods from other cities such as Boston, New York, and San Francisco- and adapted and scaled the proportion of different built use s in these places to suit our needs. Then we assigned different grades to transit nodes in downtown Oakland to spread this program around them evenly.

After coming up with our version of what the future could look like for downtown Oakland, we began to translate this information into a game format and game-board. We built out a large 9x9’ model of downtown, while translating the programming from the vision into LEGO colors and pieces that participants in the game could build with. ‘Rules of the game’ are based on general good building principles (like accounting for light & air), ground floor programming, and where we will most likely locate new buildings.

Desong Shi, Preeti Srinivasan (UCB) Lu Peijun (SCUT)

(Partly paraphrased from inferential paper by Peter Bosselmann)

Pazhou Island is located to the south of Guangzhou’s central city in the Pearl River Delta. The island’s strategic proximity to Guangzhou’s financial district has made it a prime location for urban development. In light of current proposals to turn the eastern part of the island into a major commercial concentration of the new Pearl River Bay polycentric region, the workshop revolved around creating two contrasting development scenarios and analyzed how well each could deal with major issues such as heavy typhoon rains, riverine flooding and tidal surges. 14

culverts below all streets, with pumping stations round the perimeter of the island. It is a high-density option, with canals and greenways that help create a vibrant pedestrian environment along the canals. This scheme is based on current expectations, and evaluating to what degree they may be achieved. Projected development on this Island calls for 8 mil sqm of development with a 60-40 split in commercial to residential. This is rooted in the long-term vision of a new financial district here. With this intense development, 100,000 people are projected to be living here, with the presence of 250,000 jobs here. To achieve this density, a number of typical block configurations (facing Southeast) were developed. Starting with a perimeter block configuration, these have been modified for better solar and wind orientation and a system of internal open spaces and mid-block lanes to increase density.

New Visitacion LOCATION: GROUP:

Baylands, Brisbane CA Preeti Srinivasan, Yue Li

With developable land more than twice that of Brisbane City (and the potential to house more than ten times the number of people), this scheme envisions the Brisbane Baylands as a new town in its own right. “New Visitacion� was thus developed within existing constraints, modifying and upgrading as needed, in order to produce a realistic vision for development. 16

This scheme is based on raising the adjoining freeway and sculpting the surrounding landform to offer views and access to the bay. With an additional Caltrain station and a proposed light rail line, this scheme is heavily focused on public transit. There is a vibrant network of public spaces with mixed use, mixed density development. This scheme is sensitively embedded into the context, offering the benefits of job opportunities and access to recreational spaces to surrounding neighborhoods. This urban piece is aimed to effectively connect two counties, while showcasing the best of both. This scheme proposes transit oriented development next to the Bayshore Caltrain station, with greater heights, FAR and more commercial functions. To the south end of the site, the density is reduced to match the town of Brisbane. This proposal also showcases a variety of experimental blocks for this scheme. Owing to the scale of this site, neighborhood character was established through these varying blocks.

Adjacent to Chennai’s arterial OMR Road, this housing development is part of a larger residential project by Alliance Developers. Since this forms the affordable component of the larger project, it primarily comprises of small units ranging from 30 to 70 sqft of carpet area.

Construction was aimed to be quick and efficient, with care taken at the design stage to standardize various building components for more straightforward documentation, specifically by adopting a BIM workflow.

This project is highly conscious of the recent changes in building regulations in India and the setting up the complex RERA (Real Estate Regulatory Authority) at the state level.

After undergoing multiple iterations in terms of unit design and floor layouts, the project cleared the crucial sanctions stage, and is currently under construction.

(Partly paraphrased from the Mehrangarh masterplan report by RJB-CPL)

The Mehrangarh Fort is one of the most significant examples of Fort architecture in India and in recent years, has been leading the way in conservation, museum design and management. RJB-CPL worked closely with the Mehrangarh museum trust to develop a comprehensive masterplan for the fort and the surrounding precinct that integrated best practices in museum design with state of the art infrastructure to support the Fort complex. The key objectives were to enhance all facilities to international standards, to expand the museum to meet increasing footfall and to engage with the local community. The challenge was to develop a trend-setting vision for integrated sustainable design for heritage sites in India. 22

The Fort is a complex web of organic historic spaces interwoven with modern functions, serving a multitude of users- ranging from tourists and casual local visitors to pilgrims and resident staff. At the heart of this web is the Mehrangarh Museum, which is housed in the palatial sections of the Fort and is a showcase of royal Marwari antiquity. Extensive data mining was done as a part of Phase-1 of the project, which after thorough analysis, led to the development of a preliminary masterplan. All data, inferences and consequent guidelines and strategies were summarized into a comprehensive document.

Since the Fort itself is steeped with history, much thought was given to the “Walking trails�, essentially experiential circulation routes of the Fort and its immediate context. These trails were carefully integrated with the Museum’s new narrative, while critically analyzing different areas of the Fort for their potential and need for upgrade. A number of new trails were proposed and graphically represented, to understand and explain their viability.

Submitted as an entry for an international competition organized by the Ministry of Defence, this proposal reflects solemness while honoring fallen martyrs in new ways. The concept of the Memorial is rooted in the symmetry inspired by the context, and thus, set in Lawns II and III next to the Chattri. The duality is further developed by splitting the Memorial into two focal elements: a sculpture and a dais. These manifest the heroic sentiments of sacrifice and redemption; with the sculpture representing redemption

N


in the form of the price paid for peace, while the dais is a point where sacrifices are honored. This duality is thematically expressed in the surrounding landscape using the colors red and white. Other key components include the Commemorative Bulwark (the “wall� with the names of martyrs) and the Sunken Park (used for open air exhibits).

Submitted as an entry for the international competition organized by the Ministry of Defence, this proposal aims to create a contemporary museum in the heart of Lutyens Delhi to recognize and honor the Indian Armed Forces. Careful study revealed a greatly indispensable tree cover spread quite evenly throughout the site. Rather than uproot the older, deep-rooted trees to settle a building block in one part of the site, a layout was designed to weave through the voids between the foliage. The spine of the built form is angular with enclosed spaces created by the resultant lines. 28

Primary access to the Museum site has been given from the Tilak Marg, which is used as a processional route for the Republic Day Parade. This allows for the entry facade to act as a meaningful backdrop to the procession itself. The design of the facade is derived from Colonial-era arches that have been re-interpreted to create a unique motif with openings and projections. Other riveting elements include an experiential Armament Evolution Gallery and a Commemorative Arcade featuring depictions of “Animals in War�.

On the ground level, the Museum is composed of two building blocks, which allow for segregation into public and private spaces; for general visitors and staff respectively. This also allows for interactive spaces at the ground level, creating a vibrant urban interface to the Museum. Utilizing the full potential of the required program, the two blocks have been connected at upper levels, with the Museum spilling onto the second block. The play of light in different gallery spaces is controlled to match narrative of the displayed content. Dark spaces signify loss and bright, natural light symbolize victory and progress. The underground tunnel connecting to the National War Memorial is a ticketed thoroughfare, designed to open directly into the Central Lobby of the Museum. To combat Delhi climate passive design strategies such as well shaded courtyards, water bodies and a second-skin feature wall on the southwest face have also been proposed. 29

INDIVIDUAL PROJECT

Against the backdrop of continued population growth and real estate appreciation, this thesis throws open the idea that affordable housing can exist in the heart of the city of Mumbai; successfully embodying urban culture while setting an example for development of derelict mill land in the island city. As opposed to looming concrete townships in urban fringes, this scheme aims to integrate an intensive housing scheme within a vibrant urban environment, realizing the potential of the contextual infrastructure.

Since greenfield development in the south Mumbai is relatively rare, the primary choice of site was a derelict mill land parcel due for redevelopment. The Prakash Cotton Mills site in Parel-Worli was ultimately selected for its strategic location in the midst of a diverse urbanscape; with the potential for development of much needed affordable housing and public amenities.

This scheme is a synergy of multiple aspects that are essential to solving the housing crunch within the city, coherently conceived in one project. With this mindset, this thesis reinstates belief in a holistic approach to low-cost urban housing, while promoting schematic, yet site-specific public housing system in the city.

Overrun with rampant unauthorized development, the area presents with a classic mismatch in planning initiatives and development control with actual requirements and social aspirations. Nizamuddin has the potential to be a vibrant City Centre with an active, cultural, environmentally sustainable intermodal transit hub at its core; while giving new identity to the City. This urban intervention aims to revitalize the area, causing a strong resounding effect in the precinct, echoing at the regional level. At the heart of this scheme is a well-connected transport hub; promoting non-motorized para-transit through grade and path separations. The scheme gives new lease of life to the Sarai Kale Khan settlement through a comprehensive program of commercial development, public amenities and housing. All the while, the Ishaq Basti has been retained with proposals of upgradation to existing facilities. The intervention aspires to celebrate heritage, re-establishing the importance of the Humayun’s Tomb Complex, with clearly defined axes, height control and careful creation of vistas. Also, keeping in mind optimistic proposals for future development in the city, a continuous Green Belt and local Hydro-system on the Barapulla Nallah (drain) front have been created. A connected green walkway has been established along the fringe of the intervention, allowing it to be appended to the UTTIPEC’s “Green Boulevard” proposal. The Barapulla

Nallah-front is aimed to be restored as a tributary, with several bridges across it to transform the banks into recreational areas.

Mundka, New Delhi

Muhammed Iyas, Preeti Srinivasan, Utkarsh Vibhute

Underdeveloped and mostly ignored, Tikri Kalan in Mundka is located in the north-western corner of Delhi, bordering the state of Haryana. This housing development is designed to be a Neighborhood Centre- with retail, employment and civic/cultural functions. It will eventually provide a “Shared Parking Garage�, within walkable distance of every home as the region develops with the influx of population. A proposed metro line passes on the main road leading to the site, making transit-oriented development an important consideration for this project. This project aims to create a successful system of socially inclusive sustainable housing which would set an example for future development in North-West Delhi. 34


Based on studies of the shortage in housing requirement and regional demographics, careful projections were made regarding the sizes of units and unit mix. This resulted in multiple unit typologies catering to the variety of possible residents.

Cluster Type I

Shared toilets on the lower floors
