The purpose of this study, therefore, is focused upon the possible ways to accommodate a calculated but indeterminate degree of growth and change with an increase in order, efficiency, and beauty.

The Functional and Aesthetic Uses of Two Cache Valley, Utah, Canals

Culberson, James S. 01 May 1975 (has links)
This report is a local supplement to a wider-focused report on multiple uses of irrigation canals (Kennedy and Unhanand, 1974), primarily concerned with recreational uses. Increasing magnitude and variety of use generated several use conflicts, and the need for a closer look at canal-oriented activities arose. The intent of the study is to show local residents and planning officials the present physical condition of local canals and canal corridors, their present multiple uses, the importance of Cache Valley irrigation canals as recreation systems, and some possible future canal use alternatives.

Resilient Future: A Cultural Riverfront Edge in the New Capital, Amaravathi, in Andhra Pradesh, India

Malik , Priyanka 21 April 2016 (has links)
India faced the bifurcation of a united Andhra Pradesh state into the state of Telangana and state of Andhra Pradesh or Seemandhra, on 2nd June 2014. Since the year 1948, the city of Hyderabad remained the capitol of united Andhra Pradesh. However, post the bifurcation, the two states are required to share Hyderabad as their administrative capitol for ten years after which the city of Hyderabad will be the centre for the state of Telangana. The state of Andhra Pradesh is thus building a new capital Amaravathi, along the banks of Krishna River. The name of the capital is borrowed from an existing neighboring historic settlement with the hope to bring in a sense of pride associated with the settlement. The site for the new capital city is central to the entire state and can be easily connected to important cities within and outside Andhra Pradesh. However, the capital location is known for its long agricultural industry sustained by the availability of fertile soil and the presence of water from the river. The vision plan proposed by the government offers a bright future thriving on the idea of a smart city. The plan is dotted with high rises along the river, and grey infrastructure - a term used to describe man-made engineered systems - clearly defines the river flow specifically at the center of the newly planned city. The approved scheme by the government, promotes elite activities like golf course and luxury resort on the island by embanking the river. The government approved proposal ignores the agricultural past of the place; under plays the potential of retaining natural systems and the need to work with nature; and partially addresses the social and cultural aspect in the spatial description at the central water-front edge. The thesis chooses a site in the submitted plan by the government, where there is an indication of an engineered edge and a suggested public space. The proposed thesis project aims to develop strategies which can transform the engineered riverfront, shown in the government approved plan, into an ecologically resilient, social and cultural river bank. The scheme analysis the capital site's existing condition and agricultural past and demonstrates the use of socio-cultural landscape intervention to create a public landscape infrastructure which is in tune with the environment and sensitive to the natural systems. By developing strategies that root from the socio-cultural relationship with water, the proposed scheme tries to celebrate the cultural ties between humans and landscape.

Mass Incarceration by Design: The Impacts of Urban Renewal and Landscape Architecture's Absence on the Prison Industrial Complex and the Use of Landscape Architecture as an Antidote to Mass Incarceration

Phillips, Abigail P 10 May 2016 (has links)
The work of landscape architects has both positive and negative social impacts and landscape architects can strive to intentionally design for positive social impact. This paper utilizes mass incarceration as a lens for discussing the social impact of landscape architecture. The crossroads of mass incarceration and design offer a unique opportunity for Landscape Architects to examine the impact of many urban renewal efforts on marginalized communities, the benefits of landscape architectural involvement in prison design, and the use of design as protest against inhumane structures. This paper is separated into three sections, one detailing the history of social justice and injustice in landscape architecture, one explaining how mass incarceration developed and what landscape architects can do to respond to it and another detailing The Solitary Gardens in New Orleans, a landscape-based project that advocates against the use of solitary confinement and mass incarceration through collaborative design with incarcerated people. This research suggests that Landscape Architects can combat mass incarceration in a variety of ways: through collaboration with marginalized groups when designing urban spaces, through reformative prison landscape design, through work with ex-offenders and by lobbying against the use of inhumane designs. These findings beg further research into whether it is more appropriate for designers to lead socially progressive pursuits or respond to popular movements, what the best practices for navigating between marginalized and empowered stakeholders are, what the economic feasibility of social impact design as a profession is and how to prove the mental and physical benefits of inmates with access to green infrastructure.

Creating Sustainable Future of a Degraded Urban Canal: Mae Kha, in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Nuanla-Or, Sunantana 12 May 2016 (has links)
Chiang Mai is the largest and the most significant city in the Northern region of Thailand. It was established in 1296 as the capital of Lanna Kingdom. Since then, the city is famous for its exquisite authentic Northern culture, essential trading routes, an abundance of natural places, and agriculture derived along the Ping River as well as a functional canal system in the city. In the past few decade, uncontrolled and unplanned urban development, deforestation, and the lack of public awareness have caused landscape degradation in the city. Consequently, Chiang Mai has faced several serious environmental problems such as congestion, pollution, inadequate green spaces, and the haunting memory of the inundating catastrophe in 2010. Mae Kha Canal is one of the most important features in Chiang Mai's water system that nourishes local agriculture, irrigation, and transportation. Fresh pure water originates from the mountain adjacent to the West of Chiang Mai city flowing through the city to the Ping River in the South. Unfortunately, since the unregulated growth of urbanization, the canal has suffered with massive amounts of pollution. As the result, the city has turned its back on the canal, making it a dumping site. Moreover, the problem has existed for a long time, resulting in extensive sewerage and garbage piling up in the canal. About two thousand households nearby have added the severity. Some of them have taken over the canal banks, shrunken the canal and piled it up with sediment and garbage. Recently, after the significant flood in Chiang Mai, 2010, people had started to promote the essential role of Mae Kha Canal by establishing a campaign to bring back the precious abundance of the Ping River. However, the process takes time, budget, and well-distributed responsibilities from communities, and organizations to achieve the revitalization of Mae Kah Canal. What will be the future of the canal? How do we bring Mae Kha Canal back to life? This thesis studied ecological and sustainable approaches to revitalize the water system using intensive site analysis and site planning for effective design strategies.

Developing Agritourism in the Caribbean: Critical Ethnography and Sustainable Landscape Design to Improve the Human Experience at Letan Bossier, Haiti

Lonon, Kristen Maria 18 July 2016 (has links)
The Letan Bossier, Haiti community is in need of continued investment from international agencies, in an effort to improve conditions for locals, along with shaping the experience of the tourist, at and around an attractive natural basin, three miles north-west of Cayes-Jacmel, Haiti, at about 187 meters above sea level. In order to improve ones journey through this mountainside community to the Grand Basin, capital investments must be made. The goal of the proposed design solutions is to solve for the locals first, in turn, attracting tourists to experience a space thats supported by its own people. The goal of this report is to educate involved government entities, local stakeholders, and outside investors of physical and socio-economic needs within the Letan Bossier community, for the purpose of practical design application and administrative changes necessary to sustain local well-being, social balance, and structural integrity throughout the research and design development process. Local accountability, water management, safe access, and reforestation have been identified in the qualitative research process as top issues to address in order to make Letan Bossier an economically competitive agricultural tourism attraction, as its being envisioned by investors at this time. Reporting issues highlighted by the local community will promote cultural and environmental sustainability at the forefront of a government backed effort. Here, local and international visitors are invited to experience natural wonders like the Grand Basin of Letan Bossier, the breathtaking views of the Caribbean on the way, the natural mango grove and sugarcane surrounding the basin, and a cutting-edge agricultural education from community leaders, addressing maintenance, nutritional and medicinal farming issues. The locals of Letan Bossier are the keepers of the community and specifying that role will strengthen the sustainability of the site. This sense of ownership is believed to be the first and most important step in the making of a socially, economically, and structurally sustainable community.

Fresh Flow: Where The City Meets The Sea

Su, Wanqin 17 June 2016 (has links)
The significance of this site lies in its location. It is three miles away from French Quarter, the heart and origin of the city, and eight miles away from Lake Borgne, as well as the Gulf. Regardless of the size, it distinguishes itself on the map as a wedge of green space inserted sharply into densely developed urban space. The site was prosperous cypress swamp six decades ago, too dense to identify lands and water underneath. However, after the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet was dug in the 1960s, it took less than 30 years for it to transformed into brackish open water. The transformation was disastrous. First of all, the eco-system has been severely damaged. According to a group of researchers from University of Wisconsin-Madison, the fresher the water is, the more diverse the eco-system will be. Besides the irreversible damage done to the ecosystem, loss of vegetation resulted in a huge loss of joyous space for the neighborhood. Senior residents still keep the memories of a cypress swamp as a place for recreation and production. Unfortunately, as the vegetation degraded, the role of BBTW changed from protection to the opposite. The force of surge aggregated in this open water pond, posing threats to the vulnerable low-lying neighborhood. After 1960s, a six-feet still wall has been put between BBTW and the neighborhood. reversed its protective function in the face of surges from the Gulf. To protect the neighborhood, Bayou Bienvenue Triangle Wetlands is a creation of men and nature. It was developed as the citys drainage outlet into the Gulf of Mexico, to carry excessive amount of water due to the unique location of New Orleans. The city, New Orleans, once thrived as the confluence of the Mississippi River, one of the most extensive water systems in the world, and the ocean. The rapid growth in New Orleans shipping activities resulted in extensive dredging and canalling activities in the area between the city and the Gulf. When more and more heavy-loaded ships managed to get to the river, the water from the ocean intruding further and further into coastal wetlands systems, transforming enormous amount of marshes and swamps into open water. According to surveys conducted by USGS, Louisiana's 3 million acres of wetlands are lost at the rate about 75 square kilometers annually, but reducing these losses is proving to be difficult and costly. In this huge devastation of coastal wetlands, 472-acre Bayou Bienvenue Triangle Wetlands(BBTW), the site of this thesis, is a small patch on the map. But is big enough to make a difference.
