Abstract [en]

Industrial heritage sites are special areas in a city. In recent years, China has paid more attention to the protection and renewal of industrial heritage. Because these areas have proved to be problematic, landscape architectures should work to solve these problems for future areas. This thesis asks the question: could there be a conscious way to deal with this issue? Using the five major models and Linda Groat’s four perspectives on contextual design as the theoretical approach, this thesis conducts a comparative study on the center of Norrköping and Xu Jiahui Park in Shanghai. In order to investigate if Linda Groat’s categories could be useful to landscape architectures, this thesis analyzes the two cases and discusses to what extent they fit in with Groat’s theory. The investigation produces some results to guide landscape architects; so when facing an industrial heritage, the landscape design might be dealt with in a more conscious way.
