Type: Analysis and Planning Time: 01/2016 - 04/2016 Site: College Station, TX, USA Area: 145 Acres Instructor: Galen Newman Teammates: Mengfei Bao, Zhen Yao Award: Honor Award of Texas ASLA Student Competition
The site is located on west campus of Texas A&M University in College Station, TX. The total area is 145 acres. This project attempted to resolve the problems of amplified impervious surfaces and decreased infiltration rates caused by urbanization development. In order to do this, three issues should be solved by landscape architectures: the gap between the increasing population and the water supply, the increasing demand of water consumption, and the increasing on-site runoff coefficients. In this project, our team employed the approach of Low Impacted Development (LID) in the site to manage rainwater through a vegetated treatment net.

Problem Statement Increased urbanization has resulted in amplified impervious surfaces, decreasing infiltration rates for the city and at the site. - The gap between the increasing population and water supply. - The increasing demand of water consumption. - The growing imperviousness of the soil increases on-site runoff coefficients.
Design Strategy â€” maximize on-site infiltration by Arboreal Necklace

Type: Community Design Time: 09/2016 - 12/2016 Site: College Station, TX, USA Area: 520 Acres Instructor: Dr. Chang-Shan Huang Teammates: Danna Ruan, Xinyi Bu, Yao Liu
The site is located in the south of College Station, Texas. The total area is 520 acres. Since College Station is located at the center of the â€œTexas Triangleâ€?, all of the triangle cities are within a 3 hour drive of the city. All the economic, social, and natural resources will be shared among the cities. A network of well-maintained highways and a regional airport provide convenient access to College Station. The new community is to promote active lifestyle within an environment that integrates Water, Vegetation, and Community Activities. The goals are to preserve and promote ecology, to strengthen the relationship between people and nature, and also to enhance the diversity of the residents. After completely analyzing the site condition, a design named Tranquil Forest was created by our team.
College Station Census College Station city is expanding towards South, which is an opportunity for our site. TX
