Urban Gestalt: The Z Dimension to The Vision
Here is a Urban Gestalt The Z Dimension to The Vision of a Green Urban District. As a unique approach to the creation of a residential neighborhood retail cum eco project unusual urban gestalt was proposed to be part of the competition in Los Angeles Cleantech Corridor 2010. Francisco Ruiz Alarcon and Gilbert Atick designers focused on a plan to provide clean technology corridor that will not only support a green economy, but also incubate small businesses, improving cutting-edge research and development of new technologies scale the environment, and large manufacturing and assembly of these technologies. Therefore, urban Gestalt is not only a green building, but it is a district and an apple.
Inclined to take a completely different option, the project aims to address the Los Angeles River site instead of the proposed site options. The reasoning behind the choice of this site is the option to support restoration efforts throughout the basin is made by government groups. This basin is also ignored a drainage channel or concrete storm sudden that the project aims to revitalize and heal first urban form and architecture. The LA area clean technology has always been seen in the X or Y dimension, and the urban project aims to provide a gestalt of the Z dimension to it.
Inspired by the project in 1960 by Friedman, Urban Gestalt includes the plan to build a multilayer structure along the river that has exclusive types of buildings, open spaces and circulation. The project plan focuses on building infrastructure to connect the north and south so that the distance can be covered by the metro and by car. The infrastructure is still mostly car for parking, but over time, you can try to become a social and public space. In addition, the new metro line will connect with the existing metro and gold Blue Line along the subway lines to come.

Since the objective of the project is green architecture, autonomous units recyclable and carbon neutral (called cells) are manufactured locally and installed at the desired location. Focus on longer life cycles of buildings, these cells can be used as individual units and can also be combined in multiple units as and when infrastructure changes are needed. Each unit can be used to create a single family home or small office, while a configuration of the larger unit can create a multifamily house, building learning center or hospital. The unlimited dimension Z, which is the height of the structure gradually became a way to connect the first whole structure of the existing city infrastructure, while opening new opportunities to expand both horizontally and vertically in the future.
As traditional structures start getting replaced, the new clean technology could become a corridor of several Gestalt elements in urban areas with a network of specialized transportation, housing district, hospitals, schools and universities, and commercial buildings and offices. By focusing on the paths blocked, the project plans to develop a link between downtown and the east. The entire infrastructure is to develop a super final three-dimensional porous structure of streets and roads, and one-on carpet city and river structure of the layer that acts as an artificial landscape. The area otherwise lazy river is expected to be developed as a happening place for future opportunities for agriculture, transport and leisure. With a vision to Los Angeles as one of the most advanced cities, urban Gestalt includes proposals to make the whole development of independent power project.
