Integrating the Ohio| Through Sustainable Urban Design

Clevenstine, Carly 12 September 2018 (has links)
<p> Humankind&rsquo;s relationship with water began before our inception. Our very existence and evolution depended on it, as all life on our blue planet does. However, over time and perhaps more notably since the dawn of the industrial revolution, this relationship has shifted&mdash;changed. Riverfronts became dominated by railroads and industry severing access to the water in our urban environments. In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania the neighborhood of Manchester experienced further separation when the neighborhood was divided in two by a raised, walled highway and the industrial riverfront was renamed Chateau. Both neighborhoods have suffered from blight and vacancy subsequently. Using historic and GIS maps, sustainable design standards as well as scientific evidence of the effects of water on our health, well-being, creativity and happiness; this thesis seeks to examine why this connection to the Ohio River is vital to both residents and the city of Pittsburgh. And finally how we can redesign the industrial waterfront to reconnect both Chateau and Manchester with the river and serve as a model for sustainable redevelopment of these important cultural places.</p><p>

AN ABSTRACT OF THE THESIS OF George J. Murphy, for the Master of Science degree in Plant, Soil and Agricultural Systems, presented on April 3, 2009, at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. TITLE: COMPARING THE USE OF COMPUTER GENERATED AND HAND-DRAWN DESIGNS AMONGST LANDSCAPE DESIGNERS AND LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTS MAJOR PROFESSOR: Karen Midden Landscape designers and landscape architects design landscapes in a way that integrates people and the outdoor environment in a manner beneficial to both. Traditionally, landscape designers/architects have produced their designs by hand. During the last twenty years a shift towards the use of computer aided design (CAD) software has occurred. It is unknown how many designers have made the transition and what their reasons for doing so are, as well as, why certain designers choose to hand-draw their designs. A survey was developed to 1) determine sample representation of professional, landscape designers and landscape architects using computer-aided design software as a design and communication tool, 2) determine sample representation of professionals, landscape designers and landscape architects using hand-drawn graphics as a design and communication tool and 3) evaluate why each has selected the design and communication tool of choice. Results indicate that overall the majority of landscape designers and landscape architects are creating their designs by hand. Specifically, more designers/architects from nearly every background and demographic category create their designs by hand, rather than by computer. There were three categories that did express a greater number of designers/architects that design primarily with computers 1) those whose projects are primarily non-residential, 2) those who are a part of a design department with greater than four employees and 3) those who primarily learned computer design in school. Landscape designers/architects who hand-draw their designs indicated "comfort level" as their most popular choice as to why they design by hand. Whereas, a majority of designers/architects who design with computers chose "save time" as their reason for using computers, rather than hand-drawing. However, when asked what is the average amount of time spent designing each project, the responses were nearly identical, thus using computers does not appear to save time. Results also indicate that a majority of computer designers produce some hand drawings prior to completing the final design on the computer. Whereas, very few designers/architects who hand-draw produce any computer generated drawings prior to finishing the final design by hand. Designers/architects who hand-draw and those who use computers produce the different types of drawings associated with the different stages of the design process in equal amounts, meaning that both types of designers/architects are still following the same design process. Dynascape, AutoCAD, and LandCAD are the more popular computer design programs being used by computer designers. A majority of the designers/architects who use these programs rated theirs as excellent, and a majority of these software programs also assist with cost estimation.

Cultural identity in landscape architecture, renovation of Managua's lakeside

Alvarez, Julio 22 November 2005 (has links)
This thesis examines a design approach in landscape architecture in which cultural and historical values are reinterpreted in a contemporary urban environment. The site of this project is located in Managua's lakeside area, which was destroyed by hurricane Mitch in 1998. The lakeside area has been an attraction to Managua's residents because of its beautiful views and fresh breezes. The majority of Nicaragua's population is of indigenous descent; however, Managua's urban environment is predominantly of European influence. The pre-Columbian heritage of Nicaraguans is hidden in their cultural expressions, such as the names of places and religious rituals. This project provides a new lakeside area for Managua in which cultural identity in landscape architecture is represented in the use of the site and in a rescue of Managua's residents' pride in their pre-Columbian heritage. The lakeside renovation was planned using pre-Columbian design methodology and vocabulary to create a functional and environmentally sens~velandscape.

Valuing vacancies : Temporal productive revitalisation of neglected land

Wood, Michael January 2016 (has links)
Neglected or underutilised spaces in cities have never been as important as they are today as land is consumed by rapid urbanisation. Landscape architects have been transforming these sites into public places, an example being the repurposing of a disused rai l line to create the High Line in New York, testimony to the inherit opportunity that brownfield sites possess. However, these projects require a significant capital injection making them unsuitable for the South African context. This presents an opportunity for an alternative landscape revitalisation model. This project will endeavour to create a new landscape architectural model to utilise temporary vacant sites within the urban realm- sites with high land value. This model is based around productive landscapes for growing food and has the potential to address some key challenges that cities face, including but not limited to recreational deficits, limited job opportunities and limited education regarding the production of food. The project draws inspiration from the unrestrained beauty of the weedscapes that have colonised derelict sites within the foreshore for the past 79 years and been responsible for the transformation of dredged beach sand into fertile soils, rich in opportunity for temporal productivity. The currently vacant site is located within the reclaimed foreshore of Cape Town's CBD and will act as a pilot site for further initiatives within the city. The abundance of vacant land parcels adjacent to the Port of Cape Town has the ability to provide temporary productive landscapes and initiate new pedestrian linkages to the Waterfront precinct. The project utilises a methodology that begins with detailed transects showing existing relationships between plant communities and the material and soils of the derelict site. It additionally uses the inherit seasonal aesthetic potential that weeds possess, merging it with productive planting compositions· a methodology utilised by Piet Oudolf.

Reconfiguring the burnt scar: a landscape architectural response to the Knysna fires of June 2017

Brukman, Louise Kathleen January 2018 (has links)
June 2017 will be remembered by South Africans for decades to come. A moment when Mother Nature showed her true power and the only options was to get out her path or watch in awe. Within 72hours 20 000 hectares of land and in excess of 800 homes were burnt in the Knysna region along the Garden Route. While fires are not uncommon in this area, this fire had all the conditions to make it 'The Perfect fire'. It was simply a matter of time for these conditions to align. This project begins with an understanding of conditions that caused the fire using the agent of time. Time, according to French philosopher, Henri Lefebvre, can be classified into three categories; Linear Time, Event Time and Cyclical Time. Through this process one is able to isolate the solvable from the unsolvable environmental conditions and thus an on going proposal for intervention can be proposed. The process of reconfiguring the burnt scar begins through the implementation of immediate solutions and long term planning. This project traverses a variety of scales due to the types of fuel load that contributed to the fire. The large areas of unmanaged fynbos, the pine plantations that border Knysna region and the havoc caused as it ripped through the urban settlements down to the domestic garden scale. At a regional scale the the reconfiguring of the burnt scar requires a management system that is responsible for immediate controlling of erosion post fire. As well as the monitoring and the implementation of controlled ecological burns of fynbos stands and the removal of alien invasive species. Furthermore, it is proposed that the reconfiguring of the burnt scar requires a restructuring of the commercial plantations and the establishment of critical fire breaks affecting the urban interface. The introduction of fire resistant non-native commercial trees mass scale present a landscape character and scenic value to the region that calls upon the ideals of the Picturesque. A significant contributing factor the fire was the fuel load within the suburban environment. This project proposes a vegetation palette that property owners could use in a variety of ways to form domestic scale fire break, that when in-conjunction with neighbours, a district break is established.
