Eco-City | Buffalo Bayou KBR Site Regeneration
Rejuvenate the “brown field“ site, previously industrial headquarter of KBR, to create a residential city that considers the ecosystem and the bayou along the site
The project aims to create a unique ecology that employs various conditions of natural scape (namely water) and urban scape, creating an interactive field for urban and water flow. The site is previously the industrial headquarter of KBR, situated along the buffalo bayou. Buffalo bayou is responsible for the buffalo watershed. The project explores these potentials with the concept of flow. The formal strategy is use of lines to represent flow in plan, and degree of sloping in section. The study of water applied to the site. The water pond system on the site provide solution to the flooding issue, soil contamination of the site and probably for the larger area around the site. The system is resilient to water change and fluctuate according to time.
