PLACE DES INTERACTIFS

Harvard GSD Option Studio: Montreal is Back • 2015 Renée Daoust + Aisling O’Carroll On April 27, 1967 Place des Nations hosted over 8,000 people for the opening ceremony of Expo 67 which many refer to today as the most successful world exposition in history. Place des Nations was the physical manifestation of the expo’s overarching themes of global unity and forward thinking progress while Place des Nations acted as the ceremonial epicenter of the event. Today, Place des Nations exists as a mere shadow of it’s former iconicity, recognizabe only by the nostalgio invoked to those who experienced Expo 67 firsthand. Establishing Place des Interactifs as an urban beacon for the city of Montreal, invoking sensory appeal, and equipping the site with a set of infrastructures suited to promote a variety of programs will establish Place des Interactifs, once again, as the symbolic and beating heart of Montreal. By integrating activity and interactivity in all of the embedded design elements, Place des Nations can once again recapture its own unique identity while maintaining it’s cultural and historical significance as a relic of Expo 67.

MOSCOW MOUNTAIN

Harvard GSD Option Studio: Sexy Beast: MKAD • 2015

Martha Schwartz & Markus Jatsch Traffic and congestion in Moscow is more than just a transportation issue. The city of Moscow relies on its central node, the Kremlin, as its center for government, tourism and work. 66% of people work in the Kremlin. This massive amount of influx results a commuting time of over three hours for 44% of the population. This quantity only stands to increase as the population of Moscow continues to grow, making transportation a key issue in the future of Moscow. OMA’s proposal for the future development of Moscow highlights 4 airports as nodes for growth in attempt to decentralize the city. One of the nodes identified by OMA is designated for Research and Education. In order to achieve such ambitions, something must be developed that rivals the Kremlin’s appeal as governmental, occupational, and tourism destination. a new icon for the city of Moscow. The Mountain is located within a site that is in the process of development as an education corridor with backing from tech companies and universities. The Mountain acts as an economic driver for the research and education campus as well as a new cultural icon for the city of Moscow.

THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE CAPE Harvard GSD Core III Studio â&#x20AC;˘ 2014 Pierre Belanger â&#x20AC;˘ Niall Kirkwood

Collaboration with Enrico Evangelisti and Brett Keese From 1936 to 1995 wastewater from the Massachusetts Military Reserve was dumped in a sequence of infiltration beds located on the south edge of what is now the Joint Base Cape Cod. This half-century long practice has resulted in a groundwater plume that spans from the JBCC to the coastal embayments located in Falmouth, Cape Cod. The polluted groundwater has resulted in a loss of plant and animal diversity and has threatened the drinking water in the area. The Good, The Bad, and The Cape capitalizes on positive aspects of seemingly problematic elements in Cape Cod by introducing a phytoremediation strategy that not only cleans the polluted groundwater but also produces biomass. This hybrid phyto-coppice harvesting strategy introduces a paradigm shift in traditional remediation methods and exploits the groundwater plume as an economic catalyst as well as an exhibitional remediation strategy for Cape Cod and future polluted sites.

Harvard GSD Responsive Hydrologies â&#x20AC;˘ 2015 Bradley Cantrell Collaboration with Andrew Boyd Over the course of hundreds of years, a chain of barrier islands formed around the Mississippi River Delta. These islands have unique benefits not only to the people in Mississippi, but also to the organisms living in the waters between the barrier islands and the shoreline of Mississippi. In addition to their ecological importance, barrier islands play a critical role in protecting the coast from hurricane events and storm surges. Over the past several years in attribution to sea level rise and hurricane events, the barrier islands that skirt the coast of Louisiana are starting disappear. While dredging canals and using the spoil to rebuild the barrier islands is common, the need for a more responsive process is needed if we hope to continue to benefit from these unique landforms. Using barrier islands as a launching point, FIN aims to explore the possibility of manipulating land formation through the coreography of prototyped FIN devices. To thoroughly explore this phenomenon, a systematic documentation of water and sediment flow against an array of rotating fins is recorded and a notation system to understand the stochastic distribution of flow and deposition is developed. While the investigation was limited and scaleless, the simplicity allowed a formal understanding of these relational patterns.

(re)STITCH AND INVIGORATE

CSU Comprehensive Landscape Design • 2014 Jane Choi What was once the center-piece of the city of Tampa, the Hillsborough River currently functions as a mere stepping stone for work-goers when entering the business district of the city. By exploring the call to return the Hillsborough River to it’s once vibrant state, we can begin to rethink not only how a city works with a river, but also uses it to create a thriving urban environment. The (re)Stitch and Invigorate proposal spotlights the Hillsborough River as the key revival agent to the city of Tampa by implementing an ecological infrastructure that promotes remediation, interaction, and occupation within the heart of the city. As with many city rivers, The Hillsborough is the victim of a dense hardscape of parking lots, buildings, and roads. The surface runoff and stormwater deposition has polluted the river and dramatically reduced the both the vegetal and aquatic diversity and abundance to a point that it is no longer a desirable aspect of the city. The strategy for the Hillsborough River takes the shape of a dynamic remediation scheme by integrating a system of wetlands and basins with designated open spaces and transition zones that create a multitude of areas for occupation that critiques traditional “master planning” strategies. The literal “stitching” of pedestrian bridges across the river, a rejuvenation and expansion of the city street car, and implementation of auto-alternative access routes weave the business district with the adjacent side of the river showcasing the Hillsborough River district as an ecological artery for the city.

LOOMWORKS CROSSROADS

Boston Affordable Housing Competition • 2015 Mentors: Jennifer Molinsky + M. Russell Feldman Worcester’s Main South neighborhood is home to a nationally respected university and a public school that President Barack Obama has praised as being high-achieving. There are also over 1,300 children living in poverty in Main South, and 45% of neighborhood residents receive food stamps. Loomworks Crossroads builds stability in Main South through a development program that supports families and veterans, a design that connects to and builds on neighborhood assets, creative financing for homeownership and supportive rental housing, and a comprehensive approach to community engagement.
