Landscape architecture approaches to post-industrial sites
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores design-oriented landscape approaches toward post-industrial sites. The economic, environmental, and social factors cause the rise of post-industrial sites and leave them three issues as challenges for redevelopment. The aesthetic values, including the views on landscape, nature, industrial heritage, and history, have important influence on the design of post-industrial sites. Analysis of case studies provides further insights into programs as landscape solutions to the issues. The final design proposes a mixed-use development of the obsolete Atlanta Ford Assembly Plant with a vision to preserve the industrial heritage of the site, clean up the site, and regenerate the site-centric area.
