FUSING THE URBAN FABRIC SEOUL URBAN DESIGN 2013 COMPETITION --Urban Park Redesign Seoul, Korea TEAM: Jianting Zhao (Leader) Zach Small Jake Wievel TIME: Summer 2013 SOFTWARE:

PROBLEMS & GOALS:

Jemulpo-gil, being a major highway linking Seoul and Incheon, it is forms a barrier to the northern and southern neighborhoods. The City of Seoul propose sinking the highway and leave space for ground level urban park. In order to weaken its fencing effect, we propose urban park that gathers people movements and fosters neighborhoods’ interactions.

SITE PLAN

CONCEPT--FUSE THE URBAN FABRIC

Our vision for Jemulpo-gil Park is a place where ecological restoration becomes a catalyst for urban revitalization. The park will be a model green space for the world, weaving high density urban public space with restored natural environments through a ribbon of sweeping naturalistic topography.

NEW TRAIL THROUGH TOWN DOWNTOWN REVITALIZATION (Ongoing) Cuba City, WI DESIGNER: Jianting Zhao TIME: Fall 2013-Present SOFTWARE:

PROBLEMS & GOALS:

Key Principle: Placemaking-Power of 10 (Project for Public Spaces)

Placemaking is a design process that discovers the value of an ordinary place.

1 Region

1000

Cuba City is a small town with declining and aging population. My client hopes to revitalize the city and attract more people. To tackle with the loosing population, I propose to increase this city’s value by enhancing connection with larger cities nearby, and rediscover the local value. Design Focuses • Regional Trail System • Main Street Renovation • Greenway Connection

FINAL REGIONAL PLAN & SUGGESTIONS TO HAINAN

Preserve Forest Land The preserved forest land is meant to leave a large portion of land for sustainable development and local habitats. PRESERVED AREA with 100m buffer from built environment

2

Preserve Water-bodies The preserved water-bodies are the life sources of local residents and biosystem. PRESERVED HYDROLOGY with 200m buffer from the beach, measured at the highest tide.

3

Designate Cultural Hubs in popular cities Since many ethnic group people are coming to big cities to seek for wealthier life, it makes sense to set up cultural corridors there as places for them to gather and for tourists and local residents to salute their cultures. Ideas refer to ethnic towns in the US.

4

Set Canopy Coverage Standard People need to find a balance between polluting environment and accommodating better lifestyle. Therefore canopy cover standard should be set up for new construction projects.
