The urban design for Beishu Village is located within the 66 ha Beishu

District, in downtown Shenyang.

Located west of the government municipal plaza, a traditional

commercial area was desired by the local government. The master

plan focused on the traditional folk culture and regional identity, but

added value with the inclusion of an iconic commercial complex and

hybrid tower.

The overall master plan is divided into three parcels for easy

project planning and phasing: comprehensive commercial, cultural

commercial, and memorial plaza.

One of the areas most impacted by the January 12, 2010 earthquake

is located close to the central core of Port-au-Prince. The sloping 34

hectares crowned by hill top Fort National were occupied by derelict

housing with no running water, sewer or electricity. In reconstructing

this area, the aim is to provide relocated people with a vibrant, friendly,

and secure living environment with basic public utilities and services.

The structure of the project can easily be replicated at different scales

in other reconstruction areas with similar development constraints.

IBI/DAA Group was asked to design this model project. The 34

hectares will accommodate 4,000 family housing units in small

buildings of three to four stories straddling the slopes. These will allow

the relocation of between 20,000 and 25,000 people. The heritage

street leading to Fort National acts as a spine for the area, which is

subdivided in neighbourhoods linked together and with the city below

by a network of landscaped spaces. Shops and neighbourhood

services are available along the spine and at the bottom of the hill.

The overall master plan is divided into

three parcels for easy project planning and

phasing: comprehensive commercial, cultural

commercial, and memorial plaza.

Streets, alley ways, and pedestrian walkways follow the contour lines,

while stairs allow pedestrians to go from one level to another.

The 34 hectares will accommodate 4,000

family housing units in small buildings of

three to four stories straddling the slopes
