This work aims to recreate the imbalanced relationship between the city and its river by providing sustainable flood mitigation and a brownfield redevelopment solution. Through an intuitive exploration of natural processes and psychosomatic concern of an individual, the appearances of designed elements afford an embodied landscape experience of prevailing potential of flood danger. It is supposed that the performance of the sublime appearance has the best ability in altering one´s perception and psychological state and thus provoke those who encounter it to become more sensitive to what landscape affords in their immediate everyday atmospheres

The subject of this research is: sites of dissonant heritage. The research is a triangulation between landscape architecture, heritage studies and experience theory. The remnants of war symbolize a communal traumatic memory. The consequences of disturbing events result in a scarred landscape. The synthesis led to the creation and use of the model for experiencing a dissonant heritage site.

The involvement of the landscape architect is needed in the process of renewable energy transition in order to achieve a sustainable development. The spatial arrangement of these new technologies is a relatively new subject to landscape architects. It is important to study how to make new technologies fit into the landscapes by designing. Solar Photovoltaic is one of these new technologies. In this thesis, the design strategy and principles of fitting solar parks into the landscape are studied.

In landscape architecture, ‘beauty’ is often considered as the ultimate design goal. However, the landscape architecture profession deals with many more issues than only beautiful landscapes, such as water safety, brownfield restoration and human engagement – issues that touch upon a deeper relation between man and landscape. In this relation we recognize the mechanism of ‘the sublime’, a concept emphasizing deep human emotions.

Extreme precipitation causes nuisance in daily life in many urban areas. This thesis researches possibilities to create an adapted sustainable environment by using a landscape based design approach with Veenendaal-oost as pilot case. This approach searches for a renewed connection with the landscape and seeks for site-specific challenges and opportunities the landscape offers.

Researchers from various fields are already investigating how to deal with the phenomenon of shrinking cities. We believe that landscape architects can deliver a great contribution in these investigations, since the developments in shrinking cities are no longer determined by the constructed areas but by the open spaces in the city.
