Masterplanning + Urban Design

With most of the world’s people living in cities for the first time in history, how we plan our land and design our built environments is more significant than ever. Whether our planners, designers, architects, and engineers are helping to sculpt tomorrow’s neighborhood, campus, or destination, or regenerating existing land in a developed region, we work with our clients and their communities to optimize the potential of their sites.

Our expertise is rooted in the land and its relation to the built form. We seek first to understand the unique challenges and opportunities of a project; its financial goals; any regulatory drivers; and community perspectives. Working with AECOM, our clients have access to global experts in masterplanning, architecture, building engineering, interior design, and other critical disciplines, paired with a local understanding of cultures, people, and existing places derived from our global network of locally rooted studios.

Using tools that include Planning +, our trademarked modeling software, we can measure our projects in terms of return on investment and reductions in carbon footprint. Regardless of the need at hand, our multidisciplinary teams have the expertise to provide solutions that meet our clients’ needs while achieving physical, economic, ecological, and social sustainability.

Renovation + Reuse

For decades, our architects and interior designers have been involved in renovating, preserving and adapting existing properties. Our projects have included designated historic landmarks, neglected buildings in our urban centers, buildings suffering from wear over time, and buildings requiring technology and code upgrades. For many clients, we have adapted existing properties to accommodate new use, effectively recycling an outdated building. AECOM architects approach each renovation project with a spirit of discovery and a commitment to solutions that derive from the original character and intent of each building.

QINGDAO WORLD HORTICULTURAL EXPO

INFO

Qingdao, China, 2011

UNStudio’s design for the World Horticultural Expo 2014 Theme Pavilion consists of the Main Expo Hall, a Performance Hall, Conference Centre, and a Media Centre. The design focuses on the relationship between Science and Nature. Whilst scientific achievement serves as an inspiration, the design communicates the essential generative and structural principles of nature through architectural gesture.
The buildings become gently absorbed in the landscape, whilst maintaining their individual identities. The architecture of the Theme Pavilion further responds to the dominant skyline of the mountains surrounding the Masterplan by means of carefully composed roofscapes on the individual buildings. These roofs are envisioned as elevated landscaped plateaus, each addressing a different portion of the Masterplan with its inclination and terracing, providing panoramic views which extend far into the surrounding landscape.

COLUMBIA BUSINESS SCHOOL

INFO

New York, USA, 2009

The design for the new Graduate School of Business at Columbia University offers an opportunity to embrace innovation in the pedagogy of business education.
The building is designed to use the creative enterprise of the school to facilitate cross-disciplinary interaction between the professional world, the campus, and the community at large.
The flexibility of spaces (in both the short- and long-term) drives the design approach. The design seeks to remove constraints on both instruction and student development, and to create a building which not only supports the need for flexibility, but which celebrates community as a central tenet.
Student work-study spaces and faculty divisional spaces are concentrated in plan and section to promote collaboration across all disciplines.  In addition, the spaces are connected vertically within a series of voids and internal staircases, and paralleled on several floors in one intensified zone.
Both formal and informal interactions and encounters are encouraged throughout the design. Consideration for the interior organisation of spaces in relationship to one another begins with the circulation. Corridors are considered not in terms of size, but for their capacity to contain and distribute large concentrations of people, whilst simultaneously accommodating surges in traffic and lingering individuals. Infrastructural space is employed to orchestrate informal interaction and enable a heterogeneous mixture of these spaces that are open for reconfiguration and appropriation. The building, therefore, has no traditional corridors, but maintains qualitative networking conditions.

DANCE PALACE

INFO

St. Petersburg, Russia, 2009

The 21,000 m2 Dance Palace forms part of the European Embankment city quarter masterplan for a new urban square in the historic centre of St. Petersburg. The building presents an open and inviting theatre with provision for 1300 guests (large auditorium 1000, small auditorium 300). Integration with the existing neighboring buildings is achieved by both the scale of the building – which in elevation follows St. Petersburg’s typical 28m roofline – and the transformative transparency which is introduced by a facade system of triangular cladding panels. The variation between opaque and perforated panels creates a controlled openness, depending on program, views and orientation. In the main auditorium the horseshoe form was chosen for its acoustic advantages and the proximity it affords to the stage.

MASTERPLAN STATION AREA

INFO

Gijon, Spain, 2005

Weaving together the disjointed parts of the city the masterplan creates cross connections and cross views between different neighbourhoods and between the station and the beach, while establishing a primarily pedestrian platform for new mixed-use developments, including housing, retail, office and leisure functions. The roof of the station is designed as a raised continuation of the park, a public space that is accessible from both sides of the rails. The pedestrian areas increase towards the entrance hall as local meeting points on the top of the station provide panoramic views across the plaza towards the city and the beach. The roof of the hall becomes a part of the landscape, providing local connections across the global connection axis and repairing the fracture to the city fabric created by the existing railway lines.
