The term “Waterscape” and related concepts suggest hybrid systems comprised of infrastructure and natural processes. The concept is a useful one for landscape architects and planners who are increasingly investigating rivers and other aquatic spaces. Waterscape is a potential member of a growing family of contemporary site typologies in design discourse that emphasize inherent processes as well as well as physical form. Identification of this site as a distinct element in the landscape could contribute to the development of a specific sustainable design agenda to address modern issues facing rivers. With the idea of a sustainable design approach for rivers in mind, this thesis asks how designers mobilize those critical conceptions of rivers to reconnect the Savannah River.
