dc.description.abstractThe author examines issues associated with redesigning industrial landscapes at the intersection of urban and ecological design. Background research considers alternatives to the reclamation of the post-industrial landscape that accept the limitations of arriving at a complete understanding of the past. The practical problems of restoring ecological health through designing green infrastructure are explored through the investigation of case studies and a site-specific design application. The instrumentality of urban design is utilized as an additional layer in the reordering of derelict landscapes. The design application seeks to recover the post-industrial landscape by reconciling the primary considerations of ecological design, such as structure and function, within a context of cultural activity. The author concludes that ecological design should not only reveal natural processes and remedy ecological damage, but also enable a diverse range of cultural events to unfold.
