22@ Neighborhood

Bottom-up planning in the 22@ is simply a set of block-by-block guidelines for minimums of 10% open space, 10% protected residential and 10% 7@ social service uses in order to protect the historic industrial fabric while enhancing a sense of open-endedness in design creativity. This planning method is important to collaborate existing conditions with the adaptation of new local conditions in both qualitative and quantitative measures serving 22@ workers and residents to local differences of identity over time. 


External conditions we can look in urban design planning from the bottom up understanding of local culture, values, and concerns include but are not limited to: economic and political forces, location of specific business types, diversity of people, social and physical accessibility, climate, agriculture, transportation, and many others. 


The technology or method that is applied in bottom-up planning for 22@ is the use of parametric design tools to develop a unit block system within the guidelines of 10|10|10 while having an open-endedness in the actual design creativity with considerations of the external forces.
