Look to England

Look to England! Der lanseres nå et stort stedsutviklingsprosjekt, basert på småbyens karakter og kvaliteter. Arkitekturen blir gjennomført tradisjonell. NB: Hele artikkelteksten er kopiert nedenfor, og bildene vises i kommentarfeltet, i tilfelle du ikke får åpnet nettsiden...5500 eneboliger, rekkehus og leiligheter i tett-lav bebyggelse vil ligge innen gangavstand til små sentre med ulike tilbud. Man er inspirert av garden city-bevegelsen fra tidlig på 1900-tallet. Slike løsninger er også alternativet til drabantbyblokkene som nå oppføres overalt i Norge, under dekke av å bidra til å skape gode byer og tettsteder. I realiteten bygges det kompakte drabantbyer, uten de attraktive urbane kvalitetene som er en selvfølge i historisky byer. Roten til problemet er modernismens dominans. En ideologisk styrt arkitektstand avviser både tradisjonell byform og arkitektur, uansett hvor velfungererende og populære slike løsninger er. Drabantbyens kasser dumpes i etablerte bymiljøer der de ikke hører hjemme. Prosjektet i England er tegnet av Adam Architecture, Storbritannias største arkitektfirma med en klassisk og tradisjonell profil. Firmaets grunnlegger Robert Adam er styreleder i INTBAU, det internasjonale nettverket for tradisjonsbasert byggeskikk. ----- HER FØLGER TEKSTEN TIL HELE ARTIKKELEN: ADAM Architecture lodges plans for new garden village ---- ADAM Architecture has submitted plans for a 5,500-home garden village to the north of Fareham, Hampshire – one of 14 sites identified by the government in January The outline planning application for the garden village of Welborne, submitted to Fareham Borough Council, also includes 1,857m² of commercial space, schools, healthcare facilities and green public spaces. The 400ha village is backed by Hampshire-based Buckland Development, which owns the majority of land on the site. AECOM has led the masterplanning of the project since 2008. The plans also include infrastructure improvements for the area, such as upgrade works to the A32, new distributor roads within the development and improvements to Junction 10 of the M27 motorway. AECOM director Patrick Clarke said: ‘As one of the first 21st-century garden villages, Welborne represents a new generation of sustainable communities. ‘Our masterplan combines the principles that inspired the UK’s original and ever popular garden cities with best practice design approaches appropriate for today’s context. We have integrated the best of the built and natural environments for Welborne’s future residents, and our plans lay the foundation for a place that will mature and improve over the long term.’ The community is one of 14 new garden villages announced by the government in January, along with three ‘garden towns’ at Aylesbury, Taunton and Harlow and Gilston. The government is investing £7.4 million to help build 200,000 new homes in the developments, which will be sited across England and have their own community facilities. The garden villages will each include between 1,500 and 10,000 homes, and are expected to deliver more than 48,000 new units in total. Further garden village proposals may be put forward later this year. The outline planning application for Welborne is expected to go to committee this summer. If approved, work is set to start on site in 2018, with the village expected to take more than 20 years to complete. Other practices working on the new garden villages include Broadway Malyan, which is involved in masterplanning Dunton Hills in Essex and Longcross in Surrey and a significant part of the Harlow and Gilston garden town. Garden cities were first conceived by visionary architect Ebenezer Howard, who set out plans for self-sufficient garden cities ringed by agricultural belts in 1898. Architect Raymond Unwin and his partner Barry Parker won the competition to lay out the first, Letchworth, in 1904. Twenty-seven new towns drawing on garden city principles were built in the UK following the passing of the New Towns Act in 1946. The government confirmed the development of a new 15,000-home garden city in Ebbsfleet in Kent as part of the 2014 Budget. The announcement also included the opening of a new development corporation to drive the creation of ‘spacious, attractive, high-quality places to live’ modelled on garden city principles. ------------------- Locations of the 14 new garden villages: Long Marston, Stratford-upon-Avon Cotswolds, Oxfordshire Deenethorpe, Northamptonshire Culm, Devon Welborne, Hampshire West Carclaze, Cornwall Dunton Hills, Essex Spitalgate Heath, Lincolnshire Halsnead, Merseyside Longcross, Surrey Bailrigg, Lancaster Infinity Garden Village, Derbyshire St Cuthberts, Cumbria Handforth, Cheshire Locations of the three new garden towns Aylesbury area, Buckinghamshire Taunton area, Somerset Harlow and Gilston, Essex-Hertfordshire border Project data Location Welborne, Fareham Hampshire Type of project New Community, Garden Village Client Buckland Development Ltd Architect ADAM Architecture Masterplanner AECOM Landscape architect AECOM Planning consultant David Locke Associates Site size 400ha Start on site date 2018 Completion date After 2038 ------ Link til artikkelen:

  1. Garden cities bygd for ca 100 år siden manglet ofte lokale sentre med offentlgie tilbud innen gangsavstand. New Urbanism har som sentralt kriterium for et godt tettsted at man kan spasere til et sentrum med butikker, kafeer, møtesteder, kollektivtilbud etc på mellom 5 og 10 minutter, også fra eneboligene. Man slår sirkler rundt de planlagte sentrene, basert på optimal gangavstanden. Leiiligheter og nærignslokaler plassers nærmest sentrum, i bygg med flere etasjer, mens rekkehus eneboliger og evt bolighus med areal for matproduksjon lokaliseres i periferien.

    1. På gruinnlag av erfaringen med Letchworth (1904-) ble lignende prinsipper (samling av buttikker og andre sentrumsfunksjoner) innarbeidet i hagebyen fra og med Welwyn (1920-). Herom hos C.B. Purdom, ‘Garden Cities in Theory and Practice’ (tror jeg den het; 1940-tallet).

  2. Du skrev igår om NRK som vil flytte. Du skrev også at det var synd å gjøre noe med den vakre bygningen , men kan du hjelpe NRK med å finne en konstruktiv løsning . Kritikk har vi nokk av, men konstruktive forslag !!!!!

    1. NRK forandrer ikke menng selv. De må tvinges til det an regjering, Storting og opinion. Alternativet er å bli der de er, med oppgraderinger. Til det trenger de konsulenthjelp.
