              • Downtown Dallas: Deep Ellum - Alternate Music


                from Katie Ogden Added 86 1 1

                Six summer interns at Gensler decided to attack the problem of how to bring life back to the Deep Ellum district in Dallas. They had been challenged with an open ended project: choose a downtown-adjacent neighborhood and develop its urban plan. Defining their own scope, the collaborative group produced a succinct, forward-thinking, multi-media project. The intent was to research, understand and present the dynamic condition of the Deep Ellum district, offer solutions, and forecast its future in the year 2030. As a diverse group - one from China, one from India, one from Mississippi, and three from Texas - the team united their unique insights and talents to develop a cohesive concept. Each person took on different responsibilities. Sarah Hunter took on the role of researching urban planning elements, current city conditions and project strategy. Courtney Bolden and Rachel Rubin led the effort of historical research and developing renderings. YunYuan Deng and Pallavi Singla produced the future animations and 3D model. Katie Ogden was responsible for production of the video in After Effects. The team presented innovative solutions to improve the urban design of the district, addressing parking, green space, transportation, and pedestrian-friendly schemes. What started out as a learning experience for six summer interns is now receiving recognition as a catalyst of change for an under-developed area of Dallas.

                  • Design for A Change: Informal Settlements and Low-Income Housing in India, Industrial Housing Panel - 2.12.11


                    from Center for Architecture Added

                    By 2030, an estimated 70 percent of India's jobs will be in cities, and about 590 million Indians will live in urban areas. India’s slum population is projected to rise to 93 million this year, or 7.75 percent of the total population, according to a report by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation. The symposium will present three housing models that aim to alleviate the strain on Indian cities posed by population growth, while improving living conditions for residents. The first, Incremental Housing Strategy, a project by Filipe Balestra and Sara Göransson of Urban Nouveau in partnership with the Society for the Promotion of Area Resource Centres (SPARC), redesigns informal settlements through a process of gradual improvement to existing dwellings instead of demolition and rebuilding. The second, housing developed by Tata Housing and designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, provides new low income housing through a market-driven strategy. And the third model, The Chawls of Mumbai, by Neera Adarkar, Prasad Shetty and Rupali Gupte proposes ways of preserving and adapting Mumbai’s mill worker housing as an alternative to demolition of the city’s historic fabric. Industrial Housing (chawls/mills) Neera Adarkar, expert on the chawls working on proposal for the chawls in exhibition Vyjayanthi Rao, PhD, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, The New School for Social Research Jugaad Urbanism is supported in part by grants from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. The symposium is organized with the partnership of UN-HABITAT. For full program schedule: http://cfa.aiany.org/index.php?section=calendar&evtid=2639

                      Otaniemi Walks is the story of a place, and an immersive 3D installation that combines hand drawing, sound and gaming technologies. On the 21st October 2014, a selected test group gathered at the Cave Room (Urban Mill, Otaniemi) to be immersed in a focused space, telling the story and the potential of nature and social spaces in Aalto Campus, and share their thoughts through drawing, writing and conversation. The objective of the experiment is to provide a facilitation tool for vision building in planning processes. By bringing forward the common traits of individual experience, a ground is laid towards a shared vision of Otaniemi's future as campus, and township. The sketching dimension helps in selecting key elements, while filtering out those details that are not relevant at a strategic level; the immersive dimension, combined with a social event, creates an appropriate scale for communication and dialogue, focused on those topics - nature, and and pedestrian perception of spaces- that emerged from stakeholder interviews, literature and direct observation.
