SYNTHESIS LANDSCAPE Finding the hidden story behind landscape and goes beyond

Shih Hao Liao Landscape Architecture + Urban Design Portfolio 2010-2018


Preface “Rhizome Assemblage” is a term which I used to describe my thinking toward Urban Design, urban context reveals the hidden treasures we need time to preveal, it not only contents with ecological and social aspect but “Time” as an adaptive process. I come from a country that has diverse landscape features and complex social political tension. Growing in Taiwan shapes my thinking toward urban context, because I can expose to many forms of urban context in a very short time, and through photography that I can observe and shapes my design during site visit, not only ecologically, but also socially. Taiwan inherits culture from China and Japan, and Taiwan also has its’ own aboriginal tribes within our land. It is these traits shapes my design and thinking, helping me to respect the land where I design. And I also believe, design services are not the privilege of certain people and areas, it should be for all, especially people and districts that do not have much economic power.

DESIGN AS SOCIO-ECOLOGICAL CATALYST "At the new era, the balance between man and nature has been broken again, and the survival of humanity become again a crisis, a new harmonious relationship must be built. This is the opportunity for landscape architecture to recover it role as an art of survival, and take the position to recreate a new type of Land of Peach Blossoms, that sustain humanity, give people identity and make their living meaningful. In order to do that, landscape architecture shall break with the art of gardening, and go back to the vernacular land and people, and shall lead the process of urban development by preserving and integrating cultural and ecological landscapes into an infrastructure." - Art of Survival, Kongjian Yu

BACKGROUND

Varanasi is served by several nallahs. Two of the most prominent being Varuna and Assi. They were once the lowest portions of an agricultural surface; folds in the land which at times carried overflows of monsoon rains from fields to the river and at other times were themselves cultivated as fields. At times they carried flowing water, appearing as tributaries of a river, and at other times, they were fields. This is a local response to the wide fluctuations between dry and wet seasons in India. Rapid urbanization have caused these nallahs to become open drains to the city that carry sewage and runoff to the Ganges River.

WORKING WITH CONTEXT - ASSI NALLAH


INSUFFICIENT SEWEGE SYSTEM


“Only 60% of the area around the Assi is connected to a proper sewage line.�


DESIGN APPROACH

“What if the Assi Nallah can be a productive landscape to drive social, economic and ecological benefits?.”


DESIGN APPROACH STRATEGY The overall design strategy is to adapt the Assi nallah into an articulate system of holdings and flows with platforms and folds in the landscape that treats water biotically before it reaches the Ganges. First, encouraging locals to clean up the solid/plastic waste in exchange for social capital credits. Then, landscape manipulations to create folds in the ground to slow down water flow for treatment in anaerobic platforms and filtration landscapes. Finally, these platforms can be a focus for development like hostels, working spaces, or any other public needs.

PHASING Communities will serve as custodians of the reimagined assi nallah and through the concept of social capital, our design will allow communities to work together to maintain and benefit from the environment.

FOLD & FLOW Series of folds and platforms that adapt to the land, have multiple functions and programs. Some simple some more complex.


CROSSING INTERFACE Our proposal aims to revive the Assi nallah as a productive landscape where communities can gain ownership and become stewards of the land.


LIVING INTERFACE Our overall design strategy is to restore the Assi nallah into a temporally articulate system of holdings and flows that treats water biotically before it reaches the Ganges.

Our project aims to reduce the cycle of recidivism by creating a special support network; a hybridized community for the formerly-incarcerated and the public. For the formerly incarcerated, the hybridized community will provide transitional housing, rehabilitation and correctional services while providing local job training and opportunities. Food warehouses, auto garages and manufacturing companies that currently have the CSX corridor as their backyard will be able to collaborate with this hybridized community. They will have the opportunity to provide individuals with potential transitional jobs. A new typology of building that provides spaces for job training, transitional housing, correctional services and public amenities must be flexible and will become the new fabric along the corridor. The flexibility of this infrastructure will be taken advantage of with Social Impact Bonds and investors. Investors like Exodus, MHA, and NY government will first invest in transitional housing and companies that will higher formerly incarcerated individuals.


INACCESSIBILITY OF SOCIAL INFRASTRUCTURE These resources are disconnected and inaccessible for people with only $40 in their pocket when they leave jail or prison. Shelters offer a place to sleep but do not offer the stability of a home. The issue of accessibility makes the conditions of going back and forth between a day and night shelter inconvenient. Employment is almost impossible with the social stigma they now bear and the schedule they may have to adhere to. 80% of these individuals also need regular medication or counselling for their mental illnesses/substance abuse/alcohol addiction, many of these have become over-criminalized in the past two decades. Without continuous treatment, people relapse into behaviors that are considered criminal and get re-arrested. Since Poughkeepsie includes one of four parole offices in the Hudson Valley Region, parolees end up getting re-arrested because of the difficult accessible hours and distance they might have to travel. Inside most American cities, there are abandoned railway corridors due to the decommissioning of the CSX rail line usage in certain areas. We see these abandoned areas as an opportunity and believe urban design can be the solution

BACKGROUND

We aim to create a model neighborhood where the people of Staten Island would be able to work and live with the water. We are radically re-envisioning the concept of affordable housing typologies along with a resilient and ecological waterfront. A recreational buffer between the housing and the neighborhood becomes the new hub of this location attracting more people. We believe the rezoning policies have to be largely re-thought of to cater to the economic, social and cultural needs of a neighbourhood. Our model neighbourhood largely aims at stiching the broken urban fabric of staten island through housing, public spaces and a waterfront which enables the residents to live and work off. This new typology of housing emerges from the idea of integrating business, living, recreation and resiliency into this new prototype that has a multitude of benefits. The four key goals are :

HOUSING

RESILIENT WATERFRONT

MOBILITY AND ACCESSIBILITY

MICRO ECONOMY


INACCESSIBILITY OF WATERFRONT

Research Project with Marnfah Kanjanavanit, Yeonkyu Park, Guan Wang


DESIGN APPROACH RESILIENT WATERFRONT A key to resiliency is the 3-strategy approach, which is the break waters, wetlands and lastly the berm phased in the same order,acts as 3 gates towards any contingencies. Eventually, this attracts immense ecological diversity and an array of different species. This ecological enrichment also enables people to have a lot of programs along the waterfront (oyster farming, fishing, bird watching). MOBILITY AND ACCESSIBILITY We also aim to ease the access to the waterfront by making small interventions at streets, ending with the railways line between Tompkinsville and Stapleton. Mobility also on a larger perspective in terms of better ferry lines. MICRO ECONOMY A new economy generated from the water would provide ecology-related job opportunities that can hardly be realized by automation today. Staten island has a large percentage of unemployed population and poverty is prevalent issue of concern in the neighbourhood.Oyster farming and other fishing activities tapping on the rich ecology of the north shore would engage the local population in creating a micro economy.

PIER HOUSING The study area proposed by the NYC dept. of city Planning is under the M1-1 Manufacturing Industrial zone and Residential development is not permitted in this zone. The new proposal for rezoning in this area is an opportunity to reimagine this urban corridor to enable development. This was done to better serve the surrounding neighborhoods and capitalize on the existing transportation rich areas. Affordable housing typologies are added along the waterfront with an accessible ferry service which would ease in the transportation for people commuting to work outside Staten Island.

BACKGROUND

The project is located in Shanghai Caohejing Development Zone. The building completed by Rafael Vinoly will become the largest commercial office center in this area. There is large area of artificial river and green space next to the building, and the client hopes to use this natural resource as landmark to develop outdoor design. The design concept comes from beautiful story of Songjiang “three rivers nine mountains”, which combines landform and water features with commercial, making the site become a microcosm of natural scenery and nice pavilions of Songjiang in history. We look for all opportunities to interact with surrounding nature in all open space and gray space of the building, to create experience of “city on forest/ forest in city”, with diversified program, and create unique new experience of work and play.

Matsu, a milatary island. Located on the North- west side of Taiwan. It has two islands, Beigan, Nangan. The site were locate in Beigan. It contain a airport, two villagies, and seafront. Matsu start from small villages that lived by Fishing. After the Government take over, it become a milatary place, the airport were start around 1990s. And due to the policy open to Chinese people, the airport were been rebuild to feet the growing Tourists. But these changes cause beigan’s beach were not beautiful anymore. The jetty affect, and the growing amount of seafront garbage from china. The landscape were totally damaged by human again. Natural forces, the monsoon is a challenge for the designer. Because the site were surrounded by two mountains. The North- East Monsoon affects the infrastructure deeply, So, if designer want to design places. The Landscape Infrastructure should design with the wind. Not only make people to feel comfortable but also not resisting the natural forces.

DESIGN APPROACH DESIGN STRATEGIES The design is mainly about viewing the site as a eco-system. Everythig has it’s cycle and function. Due to the difficault environment situation of bei gan island. Like, how to store the water, and how to design with the natural forsces it’s designer’s big challenges. I sort the site into two type , the urban strategies and the landscape strategies.These two strategies set a series system of the urban area and the landscape area. The urban were mainly deal with the unused space, the landscape deal with the environment issue.The monsoon is the most influencial natural forces of Beigan. So, the designer must thinking how to deal with these natural forces. How to design with natural forces. I supposed to input the landscape Infrastructure that design with the wind and grading both airport surface and the tiadal area by making landform that flow with the wind. These strategy provide a comfortable space for people to it in to enjoy the beautiful view of beigan.

The Taichung thermal power plant had caused the Dadu Estuary wetland to move down "18" degree. It creats a catastrophic damaged to the wetland ecology, and the air it discharged had polluted the Dadu Estuary wetland since it start working. Large amount of fish farm had damaged the wetland system, causing Benthic species such as Crustaceans, and "Bolboschoenus planieulmis", the most crucial wetland plants within the wetland to fade away. Hence, how does landscape architect deals with all these problems, and how to single out the important layer will be crucial to the latter approach. SITE NARRATIVE

DESIGN APPROACH RESTORATION OF ECOLOGY

WESTERN COAST OF TAIWAN

The main goal of this project is to restore the damaged Dadu Estuary wetland by recovering its' Ecology System.First, I singled out the environmental fabric with 7 layers, the hydrology system, current infrastructure system, current vegetation system, circulation, zoning,urban typology, and bird habitat. With the identification of these elements, I set up a timeline to provide landscape adaption into the future. Even after the Taichung Thermal Power Plant closed in the 25 years, the Dadu Estaury wetland will return to its' original beauty JELLY FISH AS MEDIUM TO RETURN Jelly fish is a landscape medium used to filter the polluted wetland and recover the wetland soil. It can adapts to tidal flutuation, deposit the sand with ebb type. All these treatment will provide Dadu Estuary wetland a process to recover the original landscape, and at last the biomatrix of the wetland will blossom in the year of 2030

Dakung, Taichung's urban backyard, it contents mountains surround Taichung's metro area. Nevertheless, as years go by, there weren't enough administration and tourist resources that can serve both local people and tourist. So this design is mainly finding possibility that can connects deeply within the land and breaks toursit's stereotype that taiwan's tourist usually hold. The site is located at the heart of traffic transition land, it also located near the Dali river, and also contents with old milatary dormitory. These traits shapes the site's self-identity and gives great opportunity for Landscape Architect to appoach with design that can reveals the local beauty.

STRATEGIES

VEGETATION / HYDROLOGY

The most important strategies for this project is to connect the view of the mountain and the river, bring tourist center connect deeply to the land and make it a representation of texture of land. Enabling the tourist to feel the spirit of beautiful scenery of Taichung. Due to the slope condition of the site, I create a path way leading to the south side of the site, and make volume combile with landform to represent as mountain. So this approach creates two view points to connect with northside which is the landscape of new design, and south side, the river and mountain. SPATIAL SEQUENCE WITHIN LANDSCAPE Spatial sequence provides the toursits to appoach tourist center with different feeling of spacial atmosphere: changing tree canopies, and playful landforms with paving texture, last, torist center to create far beautiful view of the remote mountain. 0

BACKGROUND

Before the earthquake in January 2010, 46% of Haitians did not have access to healthcare, because they could not afford it or because there was no health centre near them. The earthquake destroyed the health care infrastructure in Portau-Prince and shut down basic services critical for the delivery of healthcare. After the earthquake in the 2010 Haiti, it became obvious that almost all of the health care facilities were located in high seismic intensity zones. In the wake of the post-disaster relief efforts, millions of dollar was donated to Haiti. However, there has been a political and miscommunication disaster that has caused major delays on development.

IN HAITI WHICH HEALTH CARE FACILITIES ARE VULNERABLE TO FUTURE EARTHQUAKE?
