CENTRALIZING BIOTECH INDUSTRY AT NEW ROCHELLE TO TRIGGER ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ON THE REGIONAL SCALE

NEW ROCHELLE HOLDS THE CAPACITY TO BECOME A CITY WITH A VIBRANT DOWNTOWN AREA, BUT LACKS A TRIGGER TO THIS DEVELOPMENT. DUE TO THE STRATEGIC POSITION ON THE REGIONAL SCALE, PROXIMITY WITH TRANSPORTATION AND AVAILABILITY OF LAND, WE INTRODUCE A STATE’S NEED FOR A BIOTECH RESEARCH PARK TO THE CITY. THE FIRST PHASE ANCHORS HIGH DENSITY DEVELOPMENT THAT INCLUDE RESEARCH, EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES IN PROXIMITY TO THE REFURBISHED TRANSPORTATION HUB TO CATER TO THE FIRST WAVE OF COMMUTERS. IN THE SECOND PHASE, BY UNPACKING PART THE BIOTECH CAMPUS PROGRAMS INTO THE CITY AND VICE VERSA, WE BELIEVE THAT MUTUAL SYNERGIES CAN OCCUR. NEW AND INTRODUCED PROGRAMS COULD GROW ORGANICALLY INTO THE URBAN FABRIC

4

AND REVITALIZE THE DOWNTOWN AREA. FOR THIS WE CREATE A FRAMEWORK TO INTRODUCE THESE PROGRAMS IN A PARASITIC OCCUPATION WHICH USES THREE MEHTODOLGIES: EXISTING BUILDING THAT DON’T MAXIMUM ZONING, EMPTY LOTS, AND ABANDONED STRUCTURES. THE HEALTHY LOOP- A BUS SHUTTLE/ BIKE LANE/ RECREATIONAL GREEN SPACE, WILL BE INTRODUCED TO CONNECT NEW AND EXISTING HEALTHCARE RELATED BUSINESSES. THIS WILL AID THE IMAGEBILITY OF THE CITY AND CONCENTRATE A VIBRANT DEVELOPMENT WITHIN THE CITY’S DOWNTOWN.

KISUMU, KENYA ENERGIZING AND CONNECTING MARKETS AS CATALYSTS FOR IDENTIFICATION

EXISTING

THE OPEN MARKET ECONOMY PROJECT EMPOWERS INFORMAL VENDORS THROUGH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF CORE INFRASTRUCTURE SYSTEMS THAT FACILITATE ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND BRING DEVELOPMENT THROUGHOUT MANYATTA. CURRENTLY, INFORMAL VENDORS ARE BEING DISPLACED THROUGHOUT KISUMU DUE TO CITY AND COMMERCIAL PRESSURE FROM LARGE SUPERMARKET CHAINS. THE MUNICIPALITY’S MANYATTA PEACE MARKET, SIT EMPTY AND UNDERUTILIZED, EVEN AS VENDORS OPERATE IN VIBRANT ROADSIDE MARKETS OUTSIDE WITH VERY FEW AMENITIES. WE BELIEVE THAT STRENGTHENING THE MARKETPLACE FOR THE INFORMAL ECONOMY WILL EFFECTIVELY IMPACT 70% OF THE MANYATTA COMMUNITY. THIS WOULD PROVIDE A MORE SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC STRATEGY

16

INPUT

THAN THE LARGE SUPERMARKETS, WHICH DO NOT PROMOTE LOCAL INDUSTRIES AND DIVERT PROFIT FROM THE COMMUNITIES. THE PROJECT TARGETS THREE RETROFIT SITE CONDITIONS AND IDENTIFIES A TOOLKIT FOR THE CORE INFRASTRUCTURE REQUIRED FOR BUSINESS OPERATION. THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS INFRASTRUCTURE IS BASED ON THE IDEA OF INCREMENTAL EXPANSION AND SMALL INFRASTRUCTURAL INVESTMENTS THAT CAN HAVE THE LARGEST IMPACT ON THE MARKET AS WELL AS ON THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOOD. THE FIRST CONDITION IS IN EXISTING MARKETS, WHERE ESSENTIAL INFRASTRUCTURE IS INSERTED TO MEET SELLERS’ DEMANDS. THE EMPTY MARKET INTERIOR WILL BE CONVERTED TO AN INFRASTRUCTURE


THRIVING MARKET

KISUMU FUTURE THIS COLLAGE AIMS TO PREDICT THE SITUATION FROM CURRENT NON FUNCTIONING CONDITIONS, TO FIRST WAVE OF IMPLEMENTATION AND INPUT OF MARKET INFRASTRUCTURE, AND THE OUTCOME OF THRIVING SELF DEPENDENT MARKETS. HUB WHERE VENDORS AND THE COMMUNITY CAN ACCESS. SITE CONDITION 2, EXPANSION OF THE MARKET INTO SECONDARY ROADS, WILL TRIGGER DEVELOPMENT FOR ROAD INFRASTRUCTURE AND UPGRADE THE NEIGHBORHOOD TO SUPPORT ADDITIONAL COMMERCIAL ACTIVITY. SITE CONDITION 3, MOBILE MARKETS BORROW INSTITUTIONAL SPACES ON WEEKENDS OR IN THE EVENING FOR COMMERCIAL ACTIVITY, WHILE PROVIDING SOCIAL AND EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD. THROUGH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CORE INFRASTRUCTURE TOOLKIT IN STRATEGIC LOCATIONS, THIS PROJECT IMAGINES A REPLICABLE STRATEGY FOR RESILIENT, WELL-CONNECTED ECONOMIC HUBS.

REBUILDING THE BOWL

STATEN ISLAND, NY A MORE RESILIENT, MORE SECURE, AND A MORE ATTRACTIVE COMMUNITY

THE BOWL AREA, MIDLAND BEACH EAST SHORE, SI

REBUILDING THE BOWL IMAGINES TO REBUILD ONE OF STATEN ISLAND’S MOST VULNERABLE NEIGHBORHOOD. DURING SUPER STORM SANDY IN 2012, MIDLAND BEACH, THE NEIGHBORHOOD WITH LOWEST TOPOGRAPHY HAD THE HIGHEST AMOUNT OF FATALITIES IN NEW YORK CITY. THE BOWL SHAPED TOPOGRAPHY, AND THE LACK OF PROPER DRAINAGE INCREASED THE WATER VELOCITY INSIDE OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD, MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO ESCAPE. THE PROJECT AIMS TO PROTECT THE POTENTIAL OF LIFE IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD AGAIN THROUGH LANDSCAPE, ARCHITECTURAL AND ZONING STRATEGIES. THE LANDSCAPE STRATEGY PROPOSES TO INCREASE THE DRAINAGE CAPABILITY OF THE WETLAND AREA, THROUGH INTEGRATING IT WITH THE LONG DUE BLUE BELT PROPOSAL. BY ADAPTING THE EXITING WETLAND TO BE RESHAPED AND RECONSTRUCTED, IT

26

WILL FACILITATE LARGE RESERVOIR AREAS THAT IN CASE OF ANOTHER SUPER STORM INCIDENT WILL BE ABLE TO STORE EXCESS WATER, AND ACT AS A DRAINAGE MECHANISM TOWARDS FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD, WITHOUT COMPROMISING ON PEOPLE’S LIFESTYLE. The EDGE OF THE WETLANDS IS A CONTESTED SITE FOR VARIOUS REASONS. IT IS ONE OF THE MOST VULNERABLE SITE TO FIRES DUE TO PHRAGMITES GROWTH IN SHALLOW WATER EDGE. WE BELIEVE BY INTRODUCING MIXED USE BUILDING, THAT WILL INCLUDE MULTI UNIT APARTMENT HOUSING, WILL BE ABLE TO FACILITATE COLLECTIVE OPINION ABOUT THE UP CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF THIS EDGE CONDITION, RATHER INDIVIDUAL OWNER WHO HAS IT AS A BACKYARD, AND NEGLECT COULD EASILY COMPROMISE THE SAFETY OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD AS A WHOLE. THE BUILDING VOLUMETRICALLY, IS


BOARDWALK EXTENSION IN THE CITY WILL RECONNECT THE CURRENTLY INACCESSIBLE WETLANDS AND ITS NATURAL ELEMENTS TO THE REST OF THE CITY, WHILE INTRODUCING A MORE WALKABLE NEIGHBORHOOD THAT CONNECT BETWEEN THE OCEAN FRONT AND TH TRAIN STATION. ALONG THE BOARDWALK WILL BE MIXED USE BUILDINGS.

CONNECTED THOROUGH BOARDWALK EXTENSION FROM THE OCEAN AT MIDLAND BEACH TO THE TRAIN STATION AT JEFFERSON ST. IT WILL FACILITATE ACCESS TO THE WETLANDS AS A NATURAL RESERVE FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD, AS HIGH degree OF PUNCTURING FROM SIDE STREETS THAT ENSURE THE WETLANDS WILL NOT REMAIN DISCONNECTED FROM THE CITY. THIS PROPOSAL, LOOKS AT MIDLAND BEACH BECAUSE IT REMAINS THE MOST VULNERABLE EDGE CONDITION AT STATEN ISLAND’S EAST SHORE, AND Believes THAT IF ITS WITHIN THE CAPACITY TO RESPOND WITH RESILIENCE, THE SAME APPROACH COULD BE LOOKED AT VARIOUS SECTION ALONG STATEN ISLANDS VULNERABLE SHORE.

SIEMENSTADT: DENSIFYING BERLIN, GERMANY

The Siemenstadt Masterplan was designed to accommodate the growing need of housing in Berlin in the second decade of the 20th century. Built on the outskirts of the city, It was able to meet the requirements of units needed to house the workers at the Siemens Factory. Now the masterplan lies within an urbanized area, and it is consistently criticized for not having fully utilized the land it sits on. The Floor per Area Ratio (F.A.R) remains extremely low at 0.5 compared to its current context. An underground subway line has also been built after the original design was constructed, which has helped increase the density in this area of the city in particular. We are proposing to triple the amount of F.A.R without diminishing the appreciated qualities of this design. We chose to follow and amplify the original design by Hans Scharoun. His

36

Intervention in the masterplan is the only architecture that “gives a better sense of place, which was lacking from the rest of the site-and indeed, in many other modernist housing schemes� Peter Blundell Jones. Our dandifying intervention, like the original successful scheme echoes the masterplan site lines, anchoring existing volumes to new ones, and making use of underutilized lot space. The new massing extends over the abandoned railway that connected the workers to the factory, to potentially utilize it as an open public through-way and alternate mode of accessing upper-level housing. The massing also extends over the streets to frame a local vocabulary of entryways, highlighting site and existing street views, as the Hans Scharoun design intended.

CAIRO IS A CITY THAT HAS GROWN THROUGH SETTLEMENTS OF INCREMENTAL GROWTH. EACH SETTLEMENT CAME IN FORM OF OCCUPATION, LOCAL OR FOREIGN. EACH FORM OF OCCUPATION HAD THEIR OWN IDEA OF WHAT A CITY SHOULD BE. EACH PHYSICALLY MANIFESTED THIS FORM OF CONTROL AND HEGEMONY IN AT CITY SCALE INTERVENTION. IN THIS STUDY, MYSELF AND THE GROUP INVESTIGATED THE PUBLIC SPACES, IN WHICH WERE DIRECT MANIFESTATION OF THIS DEMONSTRATION OF POWER. EACH SYMBOLIZES THEIR POLITICAL AMBITIONS AT LARGE. IN THIS SITUATION, I WILL BE ADDRESSING MY PART, IN WHICH THE LATEST FORM OF CONTROL IS PORTRAYED IN AN INFORMAL MANIFESTATION. THE RESIDUAL SPACE OF TAHRIR SQUARE HAS BEEN OCCUPIED BY MILLIONS TO DEMONSTRATE THEIR OPINION AND THEIR DEMAND FOR THE DISMISSAL OF THE OPPRESSIVE REGIME. THROUGH SYSTEMATIC
