Temporal Awe: Designing for Succession and Emotion in Post-Industrial Landscapes




Hansen, Alfred

Type of Degree

Landscape Thesis


School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture


This research-by-design thesis deals with the treatment of post-industrial sites in Landscape Architecture as spaces capable of bringing an emotional experience to visitors not typically seen within the urban fabric. As a retort against the well-manicured nature of many post industrial landscape parks, this project strives to engage succession and temporality in an effort to bring a more engaging and wild typology to a post-industrial site.
