To illustrate how these rules might be deployed in context, we've extracted two sample clusters from our tissue for development, one medium density (491 ppl/ha) and another high density (1023 ppl/ha).
The medium density cluster is equivalent to roughly one half the area of a typical New York block with a density similar to blocks in the Brooklyn Heights neighbourhood. Meanwhile the high density is comparable in density to blocks in Manhattan's Upper East Side.
- 1. Architectural development of a cluster begins with identification of the topological types, and establishment of the base components.
- 2. Next greenhouses are analysed for their scale, relationship to dwellings, and proximity to the primary network. Public and communal greenhouses are identified, and access to dwellings through greenhouses is established.
- 3. Communal mixing spaces are located.
- 4. Vertical circulation is resolved
- 5. Envelope is developed, including implementation of productive facades and large scale greenhouses.
