West Rossdale and its river banks are the core cultural aspect of Edmonton. Its potential is portrayed through ‘River Crossing”, the one place where city and river meet. The thesis aims to explore the physical and cultural evolution of the site through a diversity of experiences: on, above and beside the water; and a diversity of spaces connected to each other and to the surrounding urban fabric. The overarching intention is one where the river is celebrated through thoughtful interventions that enrich habitat, create a destination, and establish a memorable and enduring sense of place, an amenity for all. The thesis presents an applied color vocabulary appropriate to the site. Where color is used as a methodology to understand the experiential psychology of the landscape. In addition, another version of the synthesis focuses more on the dimensional color relationships as governed by the structure of buildings.
