  5. 5. MISSION STATEMENT The master planning of the “Redefined” Biomedical Industrial City is proposed to meet a full range of healthcare needs as well as different development centers on a 4,000 acre property in Nakuru, Kenya. The spatial arrangement in this location will include: 1. Medical district: One main hospital with different specialty centers and two medical universities. 2. Research district: Centers and laboratories with advanced science in biomedicine. 3. Industrial district: A biomedical industrial park which includes pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing. 4. Residential and mixed-use: A residential community of different densities and mixed-use buildings. 5. Recreation and tourism: Diverse recreational spaces for the tourists and the local people. This master planning stimulates a redefinition, focus and expansion of the human, animal, environment and economic areas. The historic and local traditions will be also preserved and promoted to maintain the essence of the place. RECREATION AND TOURISM HOSPITAL RESEARCHZ MIXED-USE INDUSTRIAL

  16. 16. CASE STUDY SUMMARIES Centenary City Location: Abuja, Nigeria Year: 2013 - 2014 Size: 1,200 ha Topic : Urban plan Project Description: Abuja Centenary City is designed to work in harmony with nature, it is a city within a city that will offer complete cosmopolitan lifestyle to its residents, as well as serves as a hub for the wider community Design Strategies: -A GREEN CITY - with a natural buffer that envelopes the entire City and encircles the central neighbourhood that protects and nurtures the whole city with public -A CENTRAL PARK - that provides the green-spirit which gives orientation, clarity and iconic power to the City as a whole but most powerfully to the City Centre. -AN URBAN GRID - super-block system that is modular and organic, yielding a resulting grid of arteries, streets and pathways with an efficient traffic system where pedestrians, bicycles, motorcars, trams and monorail can co- exist in a friendly human way. -A NEW CEREMONIAL ARCADES (UNITY SQUARE) - To compliment the Eagle Square to add color to Government ceremonies and activities. -The master plan envisages dense central areas set within a system of windmill- like arterial roads that formulated a central core and heart of the new district. Inspirations: -Use arterial green space system to be heart of the new city -Create the central square to provides city spirit which gives iconic power to the whole city -Consider some areas which provides local peoples to expand their culture
  17. 17. CASE STUDY SUMMARIES Palomar Medical Center Healing Gardens Location: San Diego County Design Team: CO Architects Size: 736 000 ft2 Topic : Healing garden Project Description: Palomar Health had a strong desire to create a healing and green environment, building a garden hospital. Evidence shows that access to nature reduces stress associated with the typical clinical environment and has a positive healing effect on patients. Findings such as these drove the integration of healing gardens into all areas of the medical center’s campus, re-connecting patients, workers, and visitors with nature.  Design Strategies: 1.The Tower Gardens begin at the arrival court and extend up through the central tower by way of a series of terraces at each floor. 2.The approximately 1.5-acre Green Roof above the two-story diagnostic-and- treatment wing offers calming views from the tower rooms above. 3.Each addresses different aspects of healing and provides a specialized character and experience for individual relaxation or socializing. 4.The Mall Gardens comprise the primary pedestrian circulation through the campus and engage the arrival court for automobiles, entrance lobby, and garden beyond. Inspirations: 1.Connect existing natural green space and artificial landscape 2.Connect interior landscape and outdoor landscape 3.Consider both medical staff and patients
  18. 18. CASE STUDY SUMMARIES SERVER Project Location: Sheffield, UK Topic : Experimental agriculture Year : 2009 Project Description: Alastair Parvin’s project SERVER, proposes an Experimental Agricultural Belt (EAB) along an 8 mile stretch of the M1.  Overview: The project proposes a radically different approach to sustainability issues from that usually offered by contemporary design culture. The project takes a section of the M1 motorway in the Midlands and investigates its redesign as a self-sufficient farming system; a belt of knowledge- intensive agriculture, producing no waste and consuming minimal external resources.  Based on existing processes, prices and capacities, it begins with the production of biodiesel from algae, and the residual biomass which is used as a cattle feedstock.  Vitals: Sustainability Innovative agriculture. Improves local economy

We could conserve some and develop the vegetation to other useful functions to redefine the area.

  31. 31. PERSPECTIVE VIEWS The purpose of the traditional commerce area is to conserve the local traditions and use them to attract tourists and disseminate the richness of their culture.
  32. 32. PERSPECTIVE VIEWS In the commercial area, people can have access to many facilities without traveling long distances. As a consequence, good memories are going appear as well as a better economy for the locality.
  33. 33. PERSPECTIVE VIEWS In this view, it is shown how the new hospitals are going to recover the city’s image and the health of their people. Thus, the community is going to create new good memories based on their improved healthcare.
  34. 34. PERSPECTIVE VIEWS This view shows the close relationship that hospitals and research facilities need to maintain in order to produce an effective medical progress.
