Year:

Type:

Masterplan

 

Location:

Houston, TX

 

Instructor:

Albert Pope

 

Team:

In collaboration with Austin Jarvis

 

Problem:

Revitalize the Fifth Ward in Houston to create a materplan from the scale of building typology, block aggregation and ward scheme.

 

 

The project aims to connect the entire 5th ward through a gural “Public Network”. This network allows for exibility over time yet creates a clear prescription for program and form. The main factors we addressed were program arrangement, ground coverage, density, and phasing. The gural “Public Network “ that spans the ward oscillates between foreground and background as it serves as both a catalyst for urban development and a frame for the existing conditions of the 5th ward.
