Rethinking Bibi-Heybat: Birth, death, rebirth of Baku's oil field

Aslan, Emir 22 May 2013 (has links)
Large urban parks are extensive landscapes that are integral to the fabric of the cities in which they are situated. They offer diverse recreational outdoor spaces to fulfill experiential needs and to help consolidate the public’s sense of collective identity and outdoor life, hosting a broad range of people and constituencies. The ultimate virtue of large urban parks, when combined with social activities and interactions, is to enhance and evolve the sense of community, citizenship, and belonging in a locale. Vast urban parks allow visitors to take refuge from the busy lifestyle of cities and to be exposed to the charms and peace of nature, while discovering intimate places for retreat, renewal, and isolation. Large parks are also treasured for their ecological functions, in addition to their experiential and cultural benefits. These vast tracts of land provide a habitat for a rich ecology of plants, animals,birds, aquatic, and microbial life. Furthermore, these great outdoor nature theaters act as a cleaning, refreshing, and enriching influence on cities. Despite these obvious benefits, parks, especially large urban parks, are often overlooked or dismissed in the fastest-expanding cities; instead, most development attention is focused on mass housing, skyscrapers, hotels, condominiums, and signature buildings. This is true in Azerbaijan, as demonstrated in the environs of the capital, Baku. Alongside Dubai and Shanghai, Baku is now one of the fastest-growing cities in the world. The current government-sponsored construction boom is dramatically altering the urban face of Azerbaijan’s capital—but how long can such a breakneck speed can be maintained, and at what cost? The main impetus behind the rapid growth in Baku, and the exploitation and expansion of its urban environs, is the current oil boom—and yet most of the city’s residents have not yet realized the riches or promise of oil wealth. The unregulated construction boom has destroyed many historical neighbourhoods and traditional communities; the cultural, historical, and architectural landscape of the entire city is changing. The new wave of construction has reached towards the southeastern fringe of Baku, where Bibi-Heybat, a former oil field, lies. After decades of environmental carelessness, negligence, and extensive exploitation of the area’s resources, Bibi-Heybat has become one of the most polluted places on Earth. This thesis aims to address this issue by remediating the site, enabling this highly toxic locale to be redeveloped for better use by the people of Baku, turning it into a site that enriches people’s lives through architecture and landscape architecture. Through intensive remediation and thoughtful composition, Bibi-Heybat will be wholly transformed. The contaminated, inaccessible former oil field will be reclaimed and healed, becoming an important missing piece for Baku residents. Free from disturbance, the unstoppable dynamic of natural ecological process will create a new landscape with grasslands, shrubs, low and upland woodland, and clean water. As the landscape develops, diversity and balance will return, creating an environment where human activities and natural processes co-exist. Land, air, and water are vital pieces of life and essential for people`s physical and spiritual health; everyone feels a basic need to return to nature from time to time. Bibi-Heybat will be an embodiment of sustainable urban landscape theories, proving that qualities of wilderness can be re-established within a large city. Large parks are an invaluable part of a healthy city, and those that do not have one will always be the poorer. By tapping into the unrealized resources and wealth of Bibi-Heybat, all the people of Baku will benefit.

Transforming Suburbia : The Networked Pedestrian Village of Bayview Hills

Cheung, Esther January 2004 (has links)
The ubiquitous North American suburban model has created devastating challenges for successful community life in the twenty-first century. This thesis addresses those challenges through the transformation of the existing suburban model into networked pedestrian villages. The urban and architectural design strategies of the networked village reintegrate community programs, workplaces, and residences to create self-sustaining, socially integrated community life for the twenty first century. The specific suburban town of Richmond Hill was chosen to study how greater densification and mixed-use zoning are necessary at the regional scale. Within Richmond Hill, the neighbourhood of Bayview Hills is adapted through changes in building types, setbacks, street definition, and a central public space. The creation of the new village hall and community telecentre are necessary to define the central public space and to generate the successful urban transformation from suburban neighbourhood to networked village.

The Causeway, the Landfill, and the River: shaping Moncton's Environs

Macleod, Michaela January 2005 (has links)
The decommissioned Riverside Landfill, located on the Petitcodiac River in Moncton, New Brunswick, has been closed for over ten years. Lack of proper dumping and closure procedures has left the ground and the water surrounding the site contaminated. The waterfront, shaped by the processes of industry and hydrology remains a neglected space within the city. <br /><br /> The river's edge was once the main focal point of activity and interest of the city, facilitating more than 250 meters of public wharves along its riverbank. The exploratory design is for a new park that will restore ecological integrity of the river and introduce the individual scale to the landscape, while revitalizing its spirit within the city. Initially in the study, the site is mapped in relation to the region, the province, the city, the urban fabric, and the landscape. Considering the river's hydrology and the landfill's toxicity, the project aims to weave the degraded site back into the natural and cultural patterns that exist in the larger scale of the region. <br /><br /> Public spaces can no longer derive their form solely from economic or aesthetic doctrines. They must be developed with an understanding of natural process and used to regenerate the cityscape. The formal order shaping the park will be founded on the process of bioremediation. Additive and subtractive, cultural and biological processes are implemented over time to transform the terrain. Artificial and natural become inseparable, and develop a new relationship between urban systems, natural process, and public space. <br /><br /> Ongoing monitoring and management of the site will allow evolving adaptations of the project and support complexity and change.

Urban Agriculture: Redefining urban communities through local growing

Ramsay, Michael January 2007 (has links)
Abstract: In our ever changing world we must constantly look to new ways and new means. Waiting until a change is necessary for our survival is dangerous and costly. Our environment and our communities do not need to be thought of as independent entities. They can work in symbiotic relationships that are mutually beneficial. Sometimes the best solution is the simplest. Urban Agriculture is an ancient practice that once ensured the survival of the practitioner and the community. Like most tried and true methods, urban agriculture, makes obvious sense in our changing world. In response to the needs of the community and juxtaposed against ridiculous development urban agriculture practiced in dense, highly populated places can help to redefine and strengthen communities, people and place. It can encourage health both mental and physical, it can establish food security, it can generate economic strength and it can create self sufficient communities. Urban agriculture is possible and requires less work than most would think. Local growing makes sense and has proven to be a smart choice for both producers and consumers. Urban agriculture is a new trend in North American societies that should be pursued and encouraged.

Sun, Shell, Mirror: Hiding Spaces in the Court of France

Houle, Edward January 2007 (has links)
If privacy, and even secrecy, are critical components of the domestic interior, then what is the shape taken by the domestic architecture of people who must uphold high standards of individual transparency? Monarchs and aristocrats in absolutist France face such obligations, and the means they invest to create private and even hidden spaces in their houses and gardens during the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the beginning of our own Modern culture, not only set some precedents for how we now understand our homes, but are revealing with regards to how people attempt to preserve their personal autonomy. This thesis is primarily, though not exclusively, interested in the erotic sub-culture of the royal court and the élite of Paris, which generates a great deal of architectural, literary, and visual examples. The noble tradition of personal display to justify power, most evident with the convention of the state bed, is expanded to its limit with Louis XIV, who curtails the intransigence of the nobility by making them dependent on their presence at his protocol-bound royal court, and consequently making his own life and person as visible as possible. However, this sacrifices considerable individual privacy for both courtier and monarch, and even Louis XIV eventually finds regular retreat in the appartment of the marquise de Maintenon, his solitude-cherishing second wife, incuring the resentment of his court in the process. After his death, aristocrats are obsessed with the private and sensuous amenities of their own houses while still upholding social requirements for display, resulting in the ingenious planning and expressive decoration of Rococo architecture. This is part of a larger cultural interest in hidden activity and intense sensation that also belongs to the erotic libertine novel; Louis XV is in some ways then an ideal king for this age, with his love of secret apartments and garden houses away from court obligations he hates, and with his string of powerful mistresses. However, so much indulgence and feminine power with a mediocre king ultimately stains the reputation of the monarchy, contributing to growing criticism of France’s government. Neoclassical architecture expresses the response to this, seeking to undo Rococo’s secrecy and duality, the Enlightenment’s renewed standard of personal transparency that is ideally required of all people, not just those in power. Marie Antoinette’s personality, however, is neither amenable to this standard nor to traditions of court publicity, and her own architectural follies reveal a desire to close off the outside world, sometimes literally. Nevertheless, with libertine culture having changed the reputation of the ruling class, Marie Antoinette’s privacy is interpreted as selfish, and though neither politically agressive or sexually promiscuous, speculations of her power and sexual appetite are enough to justify her loss of respect, and eventually, her execution during the French Revolution. She loses her right to rule because she, along with the rest of the court, are seen as too banal to hold such power. Therefore, the privacy and secrecy of the aristocratic domestic interior, breached by the speculations of libertinism and rejected by Enlightenment transparency, offers an outlet for their full personalities without compromising public appearance.
