dc.description.abstractThis thesis is a design application for the public waterfront spaces of Magnolia, a proposed brownfield redevelopment along the Ashley River on the “Neck” of the Charleston peninsula in coastal South Carolina. Currently, the site is primarily vacant with visible remains of an industrial past. The intent of the proposed design is to encourage ecological and cultural healing by connecting users and nearby traditionally marginalized communities with the site’s unique and inherent processes. A methodology based on contemporary landscape theory incorporates collage into the design process to more holistically illuminate the site’s cultural and ecological contexts. Collages are constructed throughout the research and design process, and the thesis culminates with a design for the public waterfront and an evaluation of the collaging process in landscape architecture.
