Entangled Landscapes: Designing With a Multi-Species Perspective in the Post-Industrial Syracuse Inner Harbor

Other Titles

Abstract

Pollinator species are extremely important for food security and drive the agricultural economy, but are in decline primarily due to habitat fragmentation and the effects of climate change. Rust Belt cities like Syracuse have suffered from social and economic decline, and the primarily post-industrial landscapes lack pollinator habitat. By understanding the entanglements of economy, technology and species interactions, it’s possible to see cities like Syracuse playing a key role in developing a productive green economy. How can analyzing landscapes from pollinators’ perspective give insight into how to rethink the way landscape architects design for the benefit of multiple species? And how can this lead to the creation of landscapes that benefit both people, other species and the environment? Designers must move away from the typical anthropocentric design methods and explore new techniques for altering the landscape. This thesis is experimenting new methods of site analysis and design with the goal of embracing the entanglements and allowing for multi-species engagements to create a sustainable and productive landscape.
