Typologies of Alternatives Approaches to Site and Infrastructure Planning
Our design and planning approach avoids standardized solutions. It strives for experimentation, innovation, and above all site responsiveness. This approach provides choices that are ecological applicable to a range of conditions, accompanied by straightforward design details to address the possibilities of the site. In order to expand the knowledge of ‘site scale’ details and techniques that are at the heart of a project’s success or failure, we investigated particular areas of relevance to ecological oriented development. These included: • Waste Water Systems • Storm Water Systems • Stream Restoration • Climate Mitigation • Energy Supply • Food Production •Mobility • Information Technologies
Each topic was investigated in terms of its implication and possible adoption to the site. To test each element for possible development scenarios we developed conceptual site plan typologies based on singular technology criteria.
