UNCOVERING LANDSCAPE : A NARRATIVE OF FORGOTTEN SPACE
Wuerfel-Wright, Courtney Marlee
MetadataShow full item record
The thesis is an investigation of inbetween landscapes and seeks to develop an understanding of them. The inbetween is fluctuant, typically misunderstood and underutilized as a result. Particularly in cities such as London, these landscapes are being eroded away due to the pressure of urbanization. These landscapes are often viewed as leftovers, remnants of an industrial past or a post-industrial present. The trajectory of these spaces is uncertain and with the mounting pressure of urbanization action must be immediately taken. To develop an understanding is critical for their existence, fostering the ability to occupy a productive position with the urban fabric. The disparate Lee Valley Regional Park in East London will act as the testing ground, seeking to develop an understanding that embodies the specificity of the local while simultaneously in dialogue with London. Architectural instruments will act as catalyst, internally and externally focusing landscapes, provoking our sense of discovery and prompting us to uncover the local. This process evolves over time, deepened by our experiences and memories of place.
