A Place-based Urban Regeneration Strategy


NSIGO Type: Masters Thesis Project 2017 Team: S. Jaya, F. Nakabuye Professors: P. Sturla Location: Kampala, Uganda ‘Nsigo’ is both a place-based urban regeneration strategy proposed for areas of informal settlements and a Luganda word, that means seed. Just like a pioneer spore, the proposed modular and serial design takes places in areas characterized by similar conditions, colonizing bare, but fertile, environments. The strategy works; at the same time, at different scales (regional, urban, and architectural) taking advantage of existing cultural identities, local practices and economic activities. Therefore, Nsigo is a program of urban actions more than a single architectural project aimed at re-activating, by design, an urban margin taking advantage of existing, but hidden, local potentials. Through this strategy, a neglected infrastructure becomes an urban place, and this experience has been a testing-ground for a methodology that can be repeated and scaled, always adapting to the characteristics of the places where it is being implemented. The pioneer Nsigo has been proposed for a potential site located in Kampala, Uganda with three principal targets: i) creating a green corridor connecting the city, the informal settlements and a community centre. ii) creating a green productive belt as a source of raw materials for the community iii) creating an infrastructured public space to support the already existing social and commercial activities of the community.

A Place-based Urban Regeneration Strategy

MASTERPLAN The site is characterised by industrial functions that are complimented by office and commercial areas.There is however a general lack of cohesion of functions which do not cater to the needs of the greater population. This proposal aims at enhancing the pedestrian walkability, giving access to economic activities and public spaces to fit the life of the community. The project is comprised of two main sects: 1. The Green Line 2. The Community Centre.

Palm trees planted leaves can be havested as raw material to make crafts like mats and baskets among other things.

Trees planted as a protection belt between the train tracks and the moving pedestrians

Productive Belt along water channel

Green Line

Proposed Tram Line

Building shelters integrated within the empty surroundings. These could be used as break out spaces for the workers in the neighbourhood; and linking the two roads to the channel .

The master plan is zoned out in a way that best maximises landuse. The proposal entails several landscape strategies that remodel the walkways and streets (paved and shaded), enhancing the pedestrian movement and also providing a sustainable way to supply raw materials for the craft makers by planting useful trees from which raw materials can be harvetsed. The Green line is a result of an adaptive reuse of an abandoned rail track that acts as a short-cut for pedestrians to and from the city. It connects the slums in Namuwongo to the central district - Kampala Downtown. This project proposal remodels the railway line to ease pedestrian movements. This proposal will maintain the economic activities existing along the line and will enhance and provide the required landscapes and infrastructure to support it. The new development strategy for this area proposes mixed, cohesive, evenly distributed functions that cater to the everyday needs of the local population.The Community Centre at the end of the green line is a proposed place where children, young mothers, teenagers and others can escape to in order to: learn, play, dance, sing and all other activities.

A Hybrid Design of a Kindergarten and a FabLab


RESONANCE Type: Masters Studio Project Architectural Design Studio -2 2016-2017 Team: S. Jaya, P. Hascelik Professors: G. Floridi, A. Lunati Location: Milan, Italy

The intention of the design is to find continuities with an architecture before modernism, together with non orthodox milanese modernist experience as a context that is referenced. Investigations extended over proportion, ornament, typology, interiors and faรงades, colour, and relationship with existing buildings. The design seeks to reveal how rich and diverse a contemporary architecture rooted in continuity and a common culture can be. Differently than by just a mere functionalist attitude, the possibility for an urban architecture, was investigated by placing the school alone in a secluded environment.Combining the school program together with another function helped increase the metropolitan character of the project. The investigation seeked for programmes as complex as thecity, aiming at hybrid typologies able to combine rich relationships with urban form, context and relate functions. A lack of public activity in the neighbourhood, suggested theneed to create a useful collective space.The investigation resulted in a proposal that integrated a Kindergarten with a multi-functional FabLab and cafe. The design draws strong references to the School at Hunstanton by Alison and Peter Smithson as well as to the Crown Hall, Illinois Institute of Technology by Mies Van Der Rohe.

RESONANCE A school project requires breadth and intimacy as opposed to the current trend of globalisation of new schools. Recording the physical consistency of the urban context and the surrounding architecture, which comprised mainly of tall repetitive housing typologies, and low public buildings, all randomly scattered with no real reference to their own sites or each other, indicated a need for structure and order. The building’s footprint is a perfect square that occupies the entire site and acts as a reference for the surrounding buildings. The main challenge was the efficiently integrate the private function of the school with the public function of the FabLab and cafe. Therefore, the kindergarten and fablab are placed in two linear blocks separated by a courtyard and interconnected by a series of galleries enclosing green spaces. The galleries made of colonnades are essentially extensions of the building itself that can be opened or closed as required to provide access to public. Thus there is a controlled flexibility that gives the entire building the potential to be a multifuncitional community centre as opposed to the monofunctional typology of traditional schools. Materials, typology, dimensions, proportions, character and decorum are key elements. Modern and contemporary rhetoric on transparency and a sort of nudity have evoked an attempt to explore the other qualities of space, including light, opacity, richness, heaviness, decoration, structure, expression, darkness, etc. This project tries to establish a dialogue between the interior and exterior by exploring the dimension of meaningful spaces.

A Strategy for the Regeneration and Revival of a historic town through Adaptive Reuse


HERITAGE ACUPUNTURE Type: Masters Studio Project Architectural Design Studio -1 Officina Imperia Laboratory 2016 Team: S. Jaya, O. Ozcelik, G.Gualdrini, C. Wang Professors: M.Baracco, F. Lenzini, M. Bassanelli Location: Porto Maurizio, Imperia, Italy

This project tests design ideas around urban and landscape resilience in Imperia specifically focusing on the revitalization of the hilly, coastal and historical centre of Porto Maurizio. The project envisages environmental and economical rehabilitation of large territories and their related communities. This is achieved by looking at the adaptive reuse of existing landscape and architectural heritage into sustainable and resilient environments. The design approach is a consistent testing of cross-programming scenarios as a strategy for the improvement of urban areas and spaces that are rich in potential and yet are currently in declining conditions. It takes into account the potential of the town to tranform its urban and surrounding territory into an integrated whole comprising of resilient environments; informed and invigorated by sustainable economies. Thus offering an opportunity to support and promote local products and qualities and yet attract global tourism, market and interest in general. The project also aims to explore the levels of integration between built and open spaces, and to reuse, revegetate and reprogram leftover urban, industrial and infrastructural areas.

HERITAGE ACUPUNTURE It is an alternative approach to current planning that fills open space, or generally designs in isolation so that these areas are for the most part leftover, and therefore reduces the natural systems and amenity of the landscape, and sets up a clear distinction between built space and vegetated space, favouring the built space in any figure ground. It responds to the current urgency to restore our natural systems to preserve water diversity conservation as essential remedies of carbon sequestration. Water harvesting and landscape spaces hold together a series of interventions which together revitalise the historic parasio, including a distributed hotel , restaurant, car parking, studio spaces for young professionals, community facilities and kindergarten outdoor activity space.Four potential sites with abandoned buildings were selected to implement the program. A vacant corridor of the relocated railway line is proposed to be converted into a linear park for pedestrians and bicyclists.The project works through the creation of ‘green rooms’ throughout the city that connect the four proposed sites to each other, to other smaller green rooms as well as to the new linear park. The main programme proposed here is a diffused hotel - a form of hospitality where the main components are distributed in different buildings, all located in the same village/town. It is a model to develop tourism through innovation and tradition. This form of hospitality is shown to be very efficient in the valorization of towns and villages that are artistically or architecturally peculiar and interesting; it is possible to valorize old and dismissed buildings and, at the same time, solving the problems of hospitality without the construction of completely new structures.Thus providing an economical and sustainable model that materializes and transforms the existing built form through parasitic architecture.

THE WEDGE Type: Masters Studio Project Building Technology Studio 2016-2017 Team: S. Jaya, M. Guarany, E. Massaccesi, T. Gowda Professors: A. Tartaglia, G. Muciaccia, E. Rotta Location: Milan, Italy

The main intention of the design was to provide a continuity with the existing urban fabric and to create a central square, guiding the built environment towards a more open and enjoyable space. The designed building is inserted in a general masterplan that foresees the use of courtyard typology in order to enhance the relation with the surrounding natural environment. The volume of the building is prism-like and cut in the south part, according to the masterplan arrangement of the streets. It is facing the main square and creating the street front. The aim is to: -Connect the design area with the close residential neighborhood. -Create new axes connencting the design area with the central core of the neighborhood. -Strengthen the urban dimension through the presence of shops and offices on the main street. -Provide enclosed open spaces to the communityn and bring the greenery into the courtyards. -Diffuse the built area into the agricultural area gradually reducing the heights of the buildings. The designed building has been climatically and structurally designed as part of the studio.

Planning the re-use of former Expo Site

MASTERPLAN

Team: S. Jaya, A. Spaggiari, A. Zabala

Surface Area: 1,050,000 sqm

Professors: C. Morandi, F. Jappelli, E. Fontanella

Floor Area Ratio: 0.55 sqm/sqm

Location: Former Expo site, Rho Fiera, Milan, Italy This project was born from the necessity to rethink and revitalize the site after it had been completely fenced and isolated from its surroundings at the end of the Universal Exposition 2015. Having been designed exclusively for the event, it became fundamental to integrate the site once again into the urban context. The aim is to create a new centrality in Milan by tranforming the site into the new scentific centre of the State University of Milan. This public function guarantees, in fact, a significant amount of users (18000 students and 2500 teachers and employees), thereby reactivating the area. Integration with the surroundings is achieved by creating connections through green boulevards that improve accessibility to not only vehicles but also to pedestrians and bicyclists. A green belt has been proposed around the site as a buffer from the surrounding highways. Therefore the purpose of the green areas is two-fold: creating connections as well as acting as a buffer. �Raggi Verdi� is a project of the Municipality of Milan create to generate a new network of bicycle and pedestrian paths in order to the enrich urban green areas, to improve accessibility in the city and citizens lifestyle. This project reuses this concept to make Expo a new centrality linked to the main green parks of the northern part of Milan.

A New Urban Fabric through Soundscape Ecology


REVERBERATION Type: Masters Studio Project Architectural Design Studio -2 2016-2017 Team: S. Jaya, P. Hascelik Professors: E. Cattaneo

Each element in an urban environment has its own relation with sound. These elements behave differently around sound such as reflecting-eliminating-fading it. In this project we try to analyze the urban context as a collaboration of the elements as it is inside of a built space. The site that we recorded the sounds from is an urban setting in a suburban area located in the south of Milan. The aim was to the understand the characteristics of such a place. We recorded sounds at points where there is a transition from city life to a more suburban agricultural area. The surrounding environment was then categorized as solids, buffers and voids. The behaviour of sound varies around each of these elements. The solids, being built elements, act as barriers as well as reflectors of sound; voids such as open spaces act as conductors through which sound carries uninterrupted. And lastly the buffers which include natural vegetation diffuse the sounds. The sound pattern that was recorded from each of the selected locations was then projected from the points that they were recorded and the resulting relation with the three aforementioned elements (solids, buffers and voids) was analysed in order to create the final pattern. In the model it is possible to indirectly perceive the presence of built space, vegetation and open spaces without representing them in a conventional way. This results in a space with characteristics very different from the common idea of a city resulting in a city with new dimensions.

A Centre for Performing Arts


CONFLUENCE Type: Bachelor’s Thesis Project 2012-2013 Professors: Arpita Singh, Anita Dharmapal Location: Chandigarh, India

Art is the dynamic medium of expression that mankind employs as a manifestation of all the experiences and influences that it receives from its surroundings. The arts collectively build a culture. India has always been synonymous with extremity, vastness, intensity and paradox in various aspects including its culture. This project envisages the creation of an exclusive environment for the arts in Chandigarh. It is therefore meant to encourage in a broad sense all kinds of artistic pursuits. The creation of a performing arts centre is seen as a way to use culture to revitalize urban grass roots and encourage community participation. Thus the main aim is to create a ‘centre’ where different spaces of cultural consumption are found in one place. Chandigarh, being one of the most culturally diverse cities in India, is an ideal location for such a project. This thesis attempts to provide purpose-designed performing venues for professional performances as well as an institute to incubate young performers. Informal or alternative spaces are provided to incorporate non-mainstream performing art activities in order to arouse attention and interest of the public.The inter-relationships between these programs will be re-structured so as to provide new experiences to both the audiences and performers. As a result, a more favorable atmosphere would be created to facilitate the development of performing arts.

An Urban Business Hotel


PIXEL Type: Bachelor’s Design Studio Project 2011 Professors: Anita Dharmapal Location: Bangalore, India

Hotels are complex design problems as they demand the integration of various facets of architecture. This 3-star hotel caters primarily to the urban business clientele. The given site is a corner plot of about 1.5 acres in Bangalore with main roads abutting the northern and eastern side of the site. The site is located at the centre of the city with frequent vehicular movements on either side of the site. Planting of trees all around has been proposed to create a buffer. The site is surrounding by a park overlooking a lake on the remaining two sides creating soothing surroundings and negating the effects of the city hustle. A study of form-space relationships and activity analysis resulted in the linkage and heirarchy of spaces in terms of size, nature and function. As opposed to other buildings, this project required a top-to-down approach to planning starting with the layout of the rooms and proceeding with the ancillary facilites in the lower floors. The use of clean and straight lines gives it a formal appearance. The rooms are arranged and categorized according to the type of viewExecutive rooms facing the lake, Deluxe rooms facing the park and Standard rooms facing the pool/road. This resulted in the building having an L-Shaped form. The facade is treated with panels inspired by exploding pixels. The exterior treatment makes it a symbol in the urban context. These panels create varying effects of light and shadow in the interior. Hence, creating an aesthetically pleasurable experience for the hotel guests.

An Information Technology Park


CONVEX Type: Bachelor’s Design Studio Project 2011 Professors: Anita Dharmapal Location: Bangalore, India Master planning of the site has been carried out to ensure the various functions are clearly demarcated thus allowing smooth flow of traffic to the buildings while keeping in mind the need for future expansion. Adequate spaces have been provided for future developments as well as for landscaping including a rain water harvesting pond. Other service areas are located in the basement of the towers as well as at the rear end of the site. Various forms were developed and the one with the most efficient floor plate was selected. The integration of form and services resulted in a composition that resembled the sails of a ship. The design of the floor plates are such that all services are pushed to one side of the building resulting in continuous and uninterrupted office spaces maximizing functional efficency. The towers have been designed keeping fire safety regulations in mind. Break out spaces with landscaping have been provided on all floors. Other design requirements were a commercial space, cafeteria and clubhouse. These have been taken up as separate buildings in order to clearly demarcate the various functions.

A Highway Rest and Service Area


ECOSTOP Type: Internship at AsSaffa Design Practice 2013 Team: S. Jaya Location: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

This Highway Rest Stop and Service Area in Malaysia was conceptualised independently during my internship at AsSaffa Design Practice. It consists of a simple linear plan with sloped roof in response to site conditions. Bamboo being one of the strongest and most versatile building materials in the world was selected for this low budget project. Use of natural lighting and ventilation by incorporating landcsaping into the building wherever possible helped reduce the cost further. While meeting the basic needs of a rest and service area, the building has been assembled to explore the use of bamboo by using minimal components and modular bamboo units along with glass and concrete.
