  3. 3. LARGE AMBITIOUS GOALS USUALLY REQUIRE PEOPLE WORKING TOGETHER HAMODA - “ARCHITECTURE: UNDER CONTROL”: practical and pragmatic, he is the Architect who doesn’t like loosing in chats; his best friends?!? Revit & AutoCAD! EMAN - “ARCHITECTURE: WORK IN PROGRESS”: generous and careful for details, with lots of questions to investigate any new work... and at the end everything is easy! FATIHA - “AGRONOMY: LISTEN! NATURE IS TALKING...”: silent but pensive, few words to say, but lot of things to hear and know... one ear towards human beings and the other one towards plants! SIMONA - “GEOLOGY: LIFE IN EVERYTHING!” like a volcano, always switching between hyperactivity and retirement; and like a volcano, be careful of the quiescent period, because something is happening even if not visible!
  4. 4. Introduction This Project is part of the Master of “Landscape Design and Environmental Planning In the Mediterranean Area” Program, Under the supervision of Prof. Uta Zorzi Muhlmann. This Project is to design an urban park in the suburb of province of Catania “ San Giovanni Galermo” with a population just near 14849 according to the statistics of 1997. The site is with an area of 23000 m2 divided to three parts , the two northern parts with areas 2750 m2 and 4120 m2. Our goal is to have a park that deliver all of the activities needed by it’s users and to develop a new mutual activities between them. It has to be a Dynamic and to Host diversity between man and nature. ELDERS - “TIME TO REST!” CHILDREN - “TIME TO EXPLORE!” TEENAGERS - “TIME TO HAVE FUN!” FAMILY - “TIME TO BE TOGETHER!”
  5. 5. Site Analysis The site is located in the suburb San Govanni Galemo. The Area was a cultivated area that is why we can find abundant farm buildings and the sakkia system for irrigation. Also we can see an existence of high diversity in the existing vegetation which looks very nice and have high tolerance for weather conditions. Not only the vegetation that has all the beauty but also the geological features of the site plays a big role in expressing beauty. The surrounding areas to the site are privet residential buildings ,some abundant cultivated areas, new urban settlements , highway and some community services. The site has high potentials and the project aims to provide public green areas which the area needs and also encourage the connectivity between the new urban settlements ,the community services and the old lands with its abundant part and the privet housing part. Project Site New urban settlements Existing buildings Educational facilities Community services facilities Urban Green Parking Highway

The southern part with dense vegetation and the private economical housing The new road extension The old fence surrounding the area The extension area near the school with the surrounding buildings A look inside the site with the old paths The abandoned building in the center The abandoned cultivation lands The starting point SITE OVERVIEW
  7. 7. Geomorphological description: The studied area is located in the western part of San Giovanni Galermo municipality, crossed by SP88 road, connecting the town with San Pietro Clarenza. The morphology is quite uniform: generally the heights decrease from North to South; there is only one slope break, located in the north-eastern part of the area: the general direction of the different slope is NW-SE and its presence is strictly due to the geological assect. The higher points of the area, located in the northern part, are at 330m on the sea level; the lower points reach the height of 312m on the sea level and are located in the south.
  8. 8. the area is characterized by two different kinds of lava: the youngest ones are called “Historical Lava” (orange colour in the map) and they crop out in the eastern part of the area, very well visible because the slope changes according with their presence; the age of the other lavas is not clear (violet colour in the map), so they are dated by the relative position with the other rocks; these old lavas crop out in the western part of the area, where the morphology is more or less uniform and quite flat. PIECE OF A GEOLOGICAL MAP; THE ORIGINAL SCALE WAS 1:2.000 Geological analysis:
  9. 9. Geological analysis: Rock description Both the two kinds of Lava rocks belong to the so-called “Complesso delle Vulcaniti Etnee”. -The “Historical Lavas” present a quite good preserved morphology in the surface; different levels with slits alternate with uncemented or partially cemented volcanic materials. The high permability depends on presence of slits and holes, but also on the thickness of the uncemented volcanic materials. UNCEMENTED OR PARTIALLY CEMENTED VOLCANIC MATERIALS
  10. 10. -The “Protohistorical Lavas” consist of lavas and “scorie” (volcanic rocks where the presence of gases during the consolidation, creates a typical structure, full of little holes) in the upper part, with slits and variable thickness; in the lower part, there are compact lavas with opened slits. SLITS IN THE LAVA ROCKS AND THE VEGETATION GROWING INSIDE
  11. 11. Geological analysis: Sections The distribution of the “Historical Lavas” is not uniform: it depends on the way in which the lava flowed during the eruption. It is evident a concentration of these rocks in the north-eastern part of our area, rocks belonging to a larger “flow” that reached San Giovanni Galermo.
  12. 12. WE
  13. 13. Apart from the age, generally lava rocks are very permeable and a good underground water stock can be supposed. The soil, coming from degradation of these lavas, should be a little bit acid and propitious for Mediterranean vegetation. The area is full of vegetation and it indicates a good preservation of the soil and good stability of the slopes, even if the presence of artificial terraces modifies the original aspect of the area. Terraces Geological analysis: Considerations
  14. 14. Vegetation analysis: The area of our project, which is really a lovely place, is part of San Giovanni Galermo which is a suburb of Catania. This area represents an extraordinary natural beauty that lies not only in the magnificence and diversity of fauna and flora present in the environment and are a source of sounds, scents, shade and color, but can also see at the topography and geological formations on the ground that deeply affect the diversity and distribution of vegetation. The first work on the plant aspect concerns the analysis of the flora and vegetation present in the area while highlighting the differences between trees, grasses and shrubs. we came, finally, to distribute the natural formation as follows: 1. Ferns 2. Herbaceous 3. Shrubs 4. Trees Ferns : Polypodium cambrium Herbaceous Anthemis arvensis Trifolium stellatum lupinus angustifolius Centhranthus ruber Stipa capensis Isatis tinctoria Zantedeschia aethiopica Vicia cracca
  15. 15. Scrubs Hedera helix Spartium junceum Rhamnus alaternus Euphorbia characias Philadelphus coronarius Rosa sempervirens Trees Olea europaea Citrus aurantium Quercus vergiliana Pistacia terebinthus Ceratonia siliqua Washingtonia filifera This analysis also allowed us to know a set of characteristics of species in the area and we will then be used to determine, for example, the colors we can have throughout the year, the need for maintenance, species persistence sheets and fell, species that can be put together in the same place, etc…. After analyzing the existing vegetation We spoke on the second task, bearing this time around reflection on the species that will retain and which are unique to the site and that other new can lodge in the area. To accomplish this most important task. It is very important to take into consideration a range of factors determining the potential of vegetation namely: 1. AESTHETICS 2.HUMAN RESOURCES 3. NATURAL RESOURCES 4.THE ENVIRONMENT
  16. 16. •The concept is to introduce a green network linking the new developed areas with the old one, •This network applies many features, a cultivated buffer zone from one side to act as a buffer! To the high way, second to recall a functional landscape that was once in the area and to develop a cultural interactivity between inhabitants. •The buffer area is connected to the inner part where we find a smaller intimate landscapes, •The urban park is connected to the buffer area through a green bridge to enable continuity within the green network Our Green Network Strategy THE GREEN BRIDGE THE NEIGHBORHOOD OPEN SPACES CULTIVATED BUFFER ZONE

  18. 18. SECTION SHOWING THE HIGHWAY AND THE BUFFER ZONE •In the buffer zone we want to introduce kitchen gardens for the new urban settlements which will be community supported to help to develop the area and introducing more green area for the life standard improvement. • In the section below we can see how the buffer zone will provide Inner open spaces for the new urban settlements and outer protection from the highway. THESE ARE SOME OF CROPS THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE IN THE KITCHEN GARDENS Parking Inner walk way Kitchen gardens Inner walk way Citrus tree row Opuntia ficus- indica fence The highway
  19. 19. Project analysis Our goal In this project is to introduce an urban park for all and by all , and we mean by all are all the users with the different ages , also all the potentials in the site and all the features. In the zoning we divided the site by the activity not the user so that we can connect different age levels together in the activities. Human Vegetation Lava Water OUR CONCEPT IS TO MAKE A PARK WHERE ALL THE FEATURES WHICH ARE ALREADY EXISTING IN THE SITE ARE ALL COMBINED WITH THE HUMAN ACTIVITY TO PRODUCE A SPACE FOR ALL BY ALL RECALLING THE HISTORY DEALING WITH TOPOLOGY

  26. 26. Inspirations: All the most powerful ideas in history go back to archetypes. This is particularly true of religious ideas, but the central concepts of science, philosophy and ethics are no exception to this rule. In their present form they are remnants of archetypal ideas, created by consciously applying and adapting these ideas to reality. For it is the function of consciousness not only to recognize and assimilate the external world through the gateway of the senses but to translate into visible reality the world within us . C.J.Jung
  27. 27. WE HAD FUN
  28. 28. Design process: Our design process consists of the previous 6 steps: 1.The site 2.The strategy 3.The zoning 4.The scheme 5. The layout 6. The model In our design we are trying to show what is already existing in the site , because from our two site visits we all as all the groups enjoyed the place and we had fun . And also our design was based on a simple question for all our colleges and professor “what is the most thing that you liked in the site during our visit?” The Answers where: Natural – Mix use – playful- leveling experience- vegetation-topography-water system-original architecture-It is all there – vegetation walls. From these answers we could know what to keep and what not to keep. So our idea is to see what each part of the site provides and work on it . In the northern part of the sit we can see the west part is a rocky area so we used as an geological research center with a rock park for exploration , in the east area it is near the school so we will use it as a educational children part. While in the south area of the site we can see different characteristics where we will introduce in the abundant cultivated area the historical centre where we recall the cultivated activity. And In the terraces area we will show the vegetation . In the enclosed area we will have the intimate sitting area In the flat level we will introduce the sport facilities . And we will introduce a community centre to be sure that the park will survive with the help of the community and for the community so that our concept for all and by all will be introduced .The community center provides day care, party facilities and family help.

  37. 37. Vocabulary: In this section we will show our ideas of the elements we would like to use in our park. We will divide them in two different partitions : 1 . Softscape: which will be the vegetation organization , texture and colors . And this vegetation varies between introducing new species and using the existing species which are already experimented and we are sure of the performance. 2. Hardscape: which will be lighting , outdoor furniture , play ground equipment , picnic area features , paving materials and buildings finishing. FlooringPicnicArea Flooring LightingPlayground BuildingsSportField
  38. 38. Softscape: it is very important to take into consideration a range of factors determining the potential of vegetation namely: 1 . Aesthetics: public acceptance of the new vegetation and how the environment will be featured in the future. 2.Human resources: investment, skills and availability of resources for maintenance. 3.Natural resources: water, sun and soil. 4.The environment: the importance of nature conservation. The creation of a park or a natural area depends not only on the choice of plant species, but it is directly related to how we will exploit these species to form attractive places with colors and different shows. The creation of these places with a mixture of species is linked with a number of criteria among which are: Investment, tillage, the period of flowering of different species, colour, biology, habitat, the value ornamental, the ability to live under conditions of drought and low maintenance and the importance in terms of biodiversity. The following table represents a summary of all species that constitute our future park.

  40. 40. THE DISTRIBUTION OF VEGETATION IN THE PARK
  41. 41. OLD VEGETATION KEPT NEWVEGETATION Vegetation:
  42. 42. The Citrus garden: The juice garden is like an island of the past where it is the only area which has the cultivation . And we choose citrus trees for this part because in the Sicilian dilate citrus field means garden . CITRUS CULTIVATIONS.
  43. 43. Water Features: The water features that we introduced are for collecting the rain water and treating them in the system of wet lands to use this water in the service facilities and the small irrigation area, and we are reusing the existing tanks for storage which where used in the past for the cultivation lands. Also we will use the existing leveling to make the water move to improve the water saturation with air and improve its quality and also to improve the micro climate in the hot days of the summer. EXAMPLES FOR THE WATER FEATURES.
  44. 44. Buildings : In our project we introduced two new buildings , the geological research center and the community center. And we want to restore the two existing farm buildings to use them as services for bar and picnic area . Also we will introduce in them a historical point where you have some information about the cultivation activities. THE GEOLOGICAL CENTER . THE COMMUNITY CENTER . THE HISTORICAL CENTER .
  45. 45. Picnic Facilities : THE PICNIC SHELTER. In our project we introduced the picnic area in between the juice garden where we show the cultivation activity and the historical centre in the old restored farm buildings. And w e will introduce a spot where people can buy a kit which consists of all the things that you will need for your barbeque . Near the picnic area we have a children's play ground so that picnic area will be suitable for families to use it and be sure that there children will have something fun to do .and by this families come together and use public space. THE PICNIC FACILITIES .
  46. 46. Sport Facilities: HALFBASKETBALLFIELD. In the sport area we will introduce a mix field which contains different sport facilities where everyone can find her or his interest with the different age range . SKATINGAREA. CLIMBINGAREA CYCLE TRACK. FITNESS AREA.
  47. 47. Children's playgrounds: In the play grounds we have different age ranges THE DIFFERENT EQUIPMENTS FOR THE PLAY GROUNDS.
  48. 48. THE DIFFERENT EQUIPMENTS FOR THE PLAY GROUNDS.
  49. 49. Exercise stops: As the Italian standard for jogging tracks to have exercise stops , where you can do some exercise after doing your jogging cycle or during your jogging cycle. EXAMPLES FOR EXERCISE FEATURES.
  50. 50. EXAMPLES FOR EXERCISE FEATURES.
  51. 51. Lighting: The lighting features will depend on the type of function done in the area . EXAMPLES FOR THE LIGHTING FEATURES.
  52. 52. EXAMPLES FOR THE LIGHTING FEATURES.
  53. 53. Seating : These are some elements we would like to use in our project . EXAMPLES FOR THE SITTING FEATURES.
  54. 54. Bicycle rod: These are some rods that we would like to introduce on the cycle track . And this is the bollard. EXAMPLES FOR THE CYCLE TRACK FEATURES.
  55. 55. Inspirations: One eye sees , the other feels. Paul Klee
  56. 56. Detailing: This is the time for detailing , in this section we will introduce some details for the elements that we will use in our project. And we will show the different materials which we will use in each part of the project due to the activity which will be done in this space. And we will show some standards that we will be using in the project. In this part you can feel the experience of the project through the scale and texture of the spaces. This is the stage where the idea comes closer to become reality through studying the detailing of the space. And We will deal with the detailing by: 1. The choice of the materials. 2. the vegetation texture, experience and colors 3. the lighting feature Shape 4. The lighting exposure direction 5. The texture of the materials. And we also can show how we can deal with the experience of enclosure ,vision range and the land grading due to the topography of the site. ElementsofSpatial Enclosure VisionZoneLandForm

  58. 58. Principles of design should emphasize: 1. Comfort 2. Simplicity of form 3. Simplicity of detail 4. Ease of maintenance 5. Durability of finish 6. Resistance of vandalism Site objective: Seating should be sited so as to: 1. Be sheltered from wind 2. Take advantage of site views 3. Be situated back of circulation paths. 4. Provide a variety of options for pedestrians, such as: Sunlight /Shade Quietude/Activity Formality/ Informality Seating
  59. 59. The height of light standards is the single factor that most directly determines the quality of the light and the consequent ambience of the site. Exterior lighting can be generally categorized as: 1.Decorative lighting 2.Vehicular use lighting 3.General site lighting 4.Pedestrain use lighting 5. Feature lighting. Context: For pedestrain area lighting , the light sorce should be relatively low the ground in order to remain in scale with the human body and provide light beneath the canopy of the trees. Uniform arrea illumination is not always desirable lighting
  60. 60. Shelters diversity the use of a site by accommodating elements that require weather protection, such as : 1.Graphic displays 2.Tv Monitors Types of shelters range from very modest structures, such as picnic shelters, to very elaborate structures, such as bandstands Site objective: Shelters provide: 1.Protection against inclement weather 2.A focal point for site activities. 3.Transitional areas between outdoor and indoors. Shelters
  61. 61. Outdoor information can be grouped into four categories: 1.Directional 2. Locational 3. Identification 4. Display The information should be formatted and placed within easy view of either the pedestrian or motorist. The primary mode of transportation whether pedestrian or vehicular, will determine the optimum location and size of signs. Information
  62. 62. Convenience elements ahould be: 1.Easily recognizable 2.Sited to reduce clutter 3.Placed to facilitate easy access requirements. Context: Consolidation of various convenience elements into a single larger structure can enhance the visual character of a site and provide a readily identifiable feature Convenience elements include: 1.Newspapers vendors 2.Telephones 3.Information stands 4.Mail deposit boxes Convenience Elements

  92. 92. To design a park in an area located in an area such as the suburb San Govanni Galemo is a real opportunity to start with a landscape project to begin to involve the community and try to be a start point to upgrade the life quality of this area. To obtain this park which is linked with the community we have to start from the past of the land to arrive to the future of the lands. URBAN PARK OF SAN GIOVANNI DI GALERMO
