Integrate to Regenerate

Integrated urban design methods have been explored for the last few decades since the post-war planning, that promoted segragation, has failed. Urban developments reflect who we are as humans and it affects our economy, environment and how things change throughout time. Therefore, the integration of different urban aspects including social, environmental and econimcal have become crucial in modern urbanism, especially during the era of climate change and growing population.

The key goal of this project is to deliver a regeneration masterplan via plot-based urbanism approach that promotes diversity and resilience of long-term town planning.
Plot is a minimum unit of development land that is adaptable enough to withstand the change in time. Plot-based urbanism also enables place- making that promotes active urban life and sustainable urban developments.
Designing a diverse environment is a great challenge because we do not want to end up with contrived diverity. So how can we achieve a diversity that is not contrived? The answer lies not within the design itself but rather the conditions that are made.
