Brownfield topology is my term for the regeneration of urban brownfield sites through the disturbance of topography and site ecologies. This approach physically moves earth to generate unique... More > arrangements of topography and disperses seeds to create microecologies. Once an initial disturbance is established, natural forces are allowed to resume in the colonization of the site. Elements that further redefine the spatial form of the site are natural forces such as erosion, sedimentation, and floral and faunal colonization. Human use of the site is also permitted to occur in unplanned ways, so that consequent uses and inhabitation will emerge over time. From this, an adaptive terrain emerges to regenerate the site.< Less

More > autonomous patterns of settlement create cities too big for comprehension. What do we do before this expansion creates international, social, political, structural, and economical problems too big for comprehension? This project maximizes our possible/reasonable densities through familiar architectural and construction systems, envisioning appropriate, sustainable, yet futuristic vertical systems that will permit necessary macro and micro vertical expansion, adding rare program like open space, amenities, and agriculture zones, as we engulf the fringes of our megacities. It becomes a 3-dimensional micro-city contained in constantly growing vertical structures, integrated within maximized human topographies. In 30 years when 90% of the world’s population lives in cities, it will not make sense to avoid verticality.< Less
