Working with DASUDA on the Wingfield location as a case study for a demonstration of an integrated approach with new digital tools on water and traffic.
The former military airbase of Wingfield in Cape Town is a vast derelict space of 225 ha and an example of the unused spaces within the metropolis. This demonstrationproject shows an appraoach dealing with the biggest challenges in Cape Town, like traffic congestion, flooding and inclusivene urbanism. Showing that a raise in the density with a factor 10 can lead to better living conditions.
This research is a DASUDA project supported by the Transitie Faciliteit RVO, in conjunction with Greater Tygerberg Partnership.
Elstudio worked on programming the different urban scenarios.
Flooding prediction as input data for the urban design, derived from the 3Di program by Nelen & Schuurmans
Different routes give different housing density’s.
Finally, one of the future scenario for Wingfield.
