dc.description.abstractConventional urban conceptualizations institute a dichotomic hierarchy between city and suburb, and perpetuate a design discourse preoccupied with stability and permanence. In a Contemporary Metropolis where the characteristic spaces are no longer accessible through the binding language of the city, and no longer susceptible to the static design gestures it proliferates, new conceptualizations and representations must be devised that harness the Metropolis’ increased dynamism and temporality. Understanding the Metropolis as a collision of city and suburb, this thesis characterizes a new and indeterminate type of urban site, the middle landscape, and devises an imaginative mode of representation capable of seeing the tensions and dynamic processes that define it. That mode, enacted through intuitive perception, subjective experience, and critical image‐making, reinstitutes a poetics of becoming into landscape conceptualization, and, when enacted in metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia, illuminates the imaginative potential for the Metropolis’ future design.
