This image is the final iteration of the action map drawings I’ve been working with for a while here. A few small changes, such as using a circle cut-out of the background aerial to indicate commercial/residential centers (as opposed to industrial), have helped to make the map clearer. The industrial areas are lighter zones on the aerial, the surface infrastructures are darker aerial zones. Brown indicates parks and plaza space in the city. Green are the areas of extension strategically important to the Riachuelo design. Pink is the canal itself as well as the 40 meter setback on either side. Blue lines indicate the new Buenos Aires bicycle network; dashed is existing, solid is proposed as part of this project. The little tick marks by the labels over at the mouth of the river indicate depths, each tick mark is 1 meter. Orange lines in the pink zone are boat crossings, blue lines are bridge crossings; for each, dashed is existing and solid is needed.
I’ve also added phasing to this drawing and eliminated the operations diagrams from this drawing. It was too messy and confused two different (albeit it related) issues: connections existing and needed, and spatial implications of material operations of contamination remediation. For the second set of issues, I’ve ended up creating a separate, related drawing called an “operations map”.
