1.1 Thematic Research Question

F ood has been the center of civilization and cultures since the dawn of humanity. In the next decade, food population is going to be 60% urban and food access is going to be a primary issue. By 2050, not only food production has to be doubled in order to meet global demand, food security would also emerge as a major global issue. The range of factors are known to influence food security, such as growing population, falling agricultural productivity, land degradation and climate change are increasingly exerting pressure on global food supplies.

sites.

Located just 2km west of Sydney CBD, the transformation of the precinct is an opportunity to create a stunting waterfront destination along the foreshore. Several locations have been selected by the Urban Growth NSW as key destination under the transformation plan, which includes the site - Blackwattle bay and WentworthPark. Being surrounded by prime estate such as the habour and park. The site would serve as a platform for better engagement between the physical and visual linkages of the community and habour. This book contains the initial hypothesis of the thematic research and relevant information in supporting the formulation of the final proposal.

5 Key Success of an Urban Food System

1.

The urban food system relies on different

pieces of infrasture to utilize each other's resources.

2.

Integration of their daily activities of the

community through recreation and communal gatherings.

3.

A market place should be a form of common

thread amongst producers and consumers.

4.

Large series of food access points for a

healthy supply chain of fresh affordable food.

A research done by the Department of immigration and citizenship found out that by 2050, 430,000 hectares of agricultural land surrounding Melbourne and Sydney will be taken up by housing.

Water availability is directly associated with the agricultural sector and is often limited by it. Studies also revealed that agriculture is the largest consumer of water, consuming 50% of national water consumption.

The Debate

F ood security is a complex sustainable development issue. However, there is a great deal of debate around food security revealed by the World Health Organisation (WHO) argues that :

// There is enough food in the world to feed everyone adequately, the problem is distribution.

// Future food needs can - or cannot - be met by current levels of production.

// National food security is paramount - or no longer necessary because of global trade.

Why Seafood ?

is a name that includes

both fish and shellfish such as mussels and crustaceans. In Australia, seafood from the fish market is known for their variety , freshness and quality. On top of that, they are also regulated by the government towards the world's best practice in sustainable fishing.

Evidently, seafood is important towards

a healthy diet to combat food security and it is the food choice for the health-conscious. As they are high in Omega-3's and 6's, ideally for brain and nervous development. However, Australians are not consuming enough seafood in their dietary lifestyle, as only one in four reported eating once a week instead of 2 fish based meal suggested by the Australian Dietary Guidelines.

Case Study 1 | Hedron Rooftop Farm

T he Hedron Rooftop Farm is a bamboo

greenhouse designed to organically grow fish and vegetables on top of generic flat roofs in the urban city, in fact it is design to feed four families of four all year round.

The structure is also optimised for aquaponic farming techniques: the fish water nourishes the plant and plant acts as a filter medium to clean the water. It is capable of producing a variety of seasonal vegetables up to 400kg and 100kg of fish annually. This a possible solution towards limited land resoures for argiculture due to its overall foot print, modularity and capibilities.

system are the fish tank and the growing beds along with a small pump circulating the water between them. As water passes through the roots of the plants before going back into the fish tank; the plants would extract the water and nutrients from the fish waste in order to grow, at the same time filtering the water. In which resulted in a closed loop ecosystem that is both benificial to the plant and fish.

of years before the first

Europeans settlement, the Bay Precinct has always been a well established place for the local Aboriginal culture. With its abundants of natural food source, clans often trades among themselves and survived along the movement on creeks and waterways.

As urban sprawl began after the arrival of new settlers, the Bays Precinct is transformed into a industrial district to support maritime trade for the colony. As time passed, industrial uses extended its manufactured typology into timber and detergent factory in White Bay.

Today,

many of these memories has became significant heritage of the area; leaving only a hint of the past. While, the topology today consist of a range of important maritime, port and commercial uses which is not open to the public.

Eder Biesel Arkitekter A contemporary fish market caters to locals of Bergen, that provide levels of convenience and hygiene within the local historical context. The idea of providing a climatizing protection for market place that diminish the limits between market place and market hall.

Its triangular form is achived by maintaining the essential urban experience of the historical bay, moderate height is maintain in order to provide a transition in urban scale. The building's ground floor plan is also determined by the connection and segregation of the urban fabric. On top of that, views and connectivity is provided via a glass transparent facade on the ground floor.

The Estuary

Upon the aforementioned program of innovative

Identified Estuary are as :-

sustainable food production, the relationship between land and water inlet such as The Bay Precinct was further researched in depth.

An inlet is basically a water-way that separates two barrier islands and connects the ocean to the bay. (Seminack, 2012) These inlets formation are important for certain marine ecosystem such as oyster for their rich nutrients of plankton and bacteria.

These inlets formation are also known as estuary. Further research led to the understanding of

estuary as a transition zone between the shore, river as well as saltwater that creates a free flow of connection between land and water. Other examples of estuaries are bays, swamps, mangroves, bogs and more. However, 3 were identified relevant towards the scheme.

The Estuary is a free flow of connection between land and water inlets. As mention in the previous chapter, 3 main category were used as a driver in pursuing the "big moves" governing the framework of the concept masterplan.

1. Chain of public spaces that activates the site through pocket spaces of aquaponics.

2. A Linear spline circulation that branches out into the pocketspaces and rejoins further down stream.

3. Lagoon as a parallel activity strip that wraps around the bay serves as an important transition between the land and water.

4. Elements that wraps around the foreshore that drives the activities on site.

The initial attempt of the master plan concept was to use vector movements as connecting element throughout the site. However, critics are as listed below.

Critics : 1. Vector movements were not govern and related towards the initial research hypothesis and intend.

2. Edges are required in order to create a sucessfull urban public plaza.

3. Provisional Fish Marker was located infront of the Wentworth Park, however, connection between the park and harbour would be further disconnected.

4. Additional flaw of this concept was the intend of removing the iconic cement tower and disused coal loaded. ( Theory of Tabula Rasa, the idea ignored the relationship between history, landscape and community.

The Ver4 Concept Master Plan is resulted from the amendments and injecting personal architectural voice into version 3.

1. Existing Greenaries and structure starts to form a structural edge in the overall planning.

2. Directional plannars were used to help create a sense of dynamic movement inbetween pockets of spaces.

3. The form then starts to question its layering of spaces along the Z-axis, creating ramps in and out the bay; up and down the landscape. Blurring boudaries in between elements.

4. Path ways were distorted to create a sense of perspective, drawing people into the bay precinct as well as flow out of the area.

The proposal seeks to not only provide access to fresh nutritious food but also serves as an interactive public landmark that promote and practices sustainable food cultivation in Sydney.

The Approach

The exploration between land and

water is carried on from the masterplan at an micro level.

Layers of activities creates the

experience to and from the building. Upon arrival, water playground and a water featured pavilion serves as an point of interest towards the public domain; subsequently 'flowing' into the building .

The experience of land and water is also present within the building. Celebration of promenient elements such as, aquaponics feature and large display tanks at the wholesale area.

Physical and visual connection to provoke active and social learning environment as occpuants 'filter' through the journey.

Aquaponics

Base on research, vertical aquaponics

has additional advantage in terms of practicality and productivity. Capitalizing on its modularity and customisation, whereby, aquaponic walls are celebrated throughout the building as a feature.

Here, occupants are able to learn and exchange knowledge of aquaponics at the workshop. Being managed by the public, crops harvested from these wall are then sold at the aquaponics wholesale market or cooked at the retail level for consumption. Providing an additional access to fresh and nutritious food source.

Cultural Retail

Spatial relationship between spaces

were explored base on precedent studies and neufort's architectural data handbook.

Each cultural space (Japanese , Chinese , Western) were individually design based on their needs and requirement. Placement of equipments defer from kitchen to kitchen for example, japanese kitchen requires a back preparation room as the food are made to order while european kitchen has a direct and linear layout called "hot meal kitchen".

Occupants are able to have first hand experience in learning different cultural preparation of seafood at the demonstration kitchen. The knowledge is then applicable in real world situation at the student bistro, allowing the occupants to serve the public.

The manipulation of floor planes that concurrently promotes the linearity in circulation, whereby together with the celebration of aquaponics reates active and social learning environment around the interstitial space.

Environmental Strategy

The constrain of height limit within the

planning framework as opportunity. Service strip not only acts as a structural feature but also serves as an buffer compartment between the promenade and dense traffic movement of the freeway.

Skylight along the strip of movement filtering direct sunlight into the space. Creating a sense of movement for the occupants as well as providing sunlight for the aquaponics.

Advantage of an aquaponic system is a closed loop ecosystem that constantly filtering grey water. Hence, run offs from auction hall will be filter through and back into the bay.

langguage of linearity, the sinuous linear form serves as an transition element in between pyrmount and blackwattle bay. The robust RC service strip starts "peeling" as it progress towards

capitalzing the waterfront promenade and view.

Upon structural consultantion, it was suggested that spacing between the CRS to increase from 8000mm grid to 12000mm grid due to the structural capabilities of Steel. Subsequently, it is adviced to have a RC service core with a min
