Parks that provide : incorporating food forests into urban public space by Melanie Jeane Bowerman( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis aims to show how food forests can be considered a valid and valuable addition to public urban agriculture options. With increasing public awareness concerning conventional agriculture practices, and the need for local food security, urban agriculture is once again gaining popularity. Nonetheless, serious investment and consideration in creating permanent spaces for food production is lacking within cities. Urban agriculture is still often viewed as a nuisance rather than a resource for social and ecological benefits. This study investigates the potential of food forests, which differ greatly in design and program from other common urban agriculture typologies, to provide public services, and contribute to the health of urban ecosystems, while also producing food. It seeks to understand how food forests can be successfully integrated into cities as multifunctional public space, which may help encourage the establishment of permanent urban agricultural spaces within cities. Classification methodology is used to create a framework to evaluate the success of food forests in three areas of design theory: permaculture and food forest design, public space design, and urban sustainability. Two case studies are then analyzed based on this framework to assess the current function of existing urban food forests. A conceptual design for a public food forest in Atlanta, GA is offered as a model, which can be emulated in future designs
Expressing process-driven landscapes in the Southern Piedmont Region by Tianyi Jiang( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An ecological planting approach is beneficial to the environment but also requires a better means of educating and engaging the public. This thesis explores the scientific mechanism of ecological planting and analyzes expression strategies in the design realm in order to better express the concept of "process" through the integration of ecological planting with design. Relevent cases are reviewed and the vernacular ecological process in the southern Piedmont is analyzed, providing a concept proposal applied to the University of Georgia's north campus quad
Everyone had a place at her tables : women restaurant owners of "meat & threes" in Georgia, 1940-1960 by Hollis Yates( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Meat and threes", restraurants that serve a main dish of meat with the option of two vegetable sides and various breads, are a staple in many southern towns. The societal factors that let places like "meat and threes" develop and remain popular are indicative of a changing society, hence these restaurants have historical significance. Yet the interplay between food, place, race and women in the South has not been fully researched. These restaurants are relevant to the evolution of women (black and white) in two main ways: they served food that was typically prepared by women at home; and provided women with the opportunity to own a business, a venture that was previously unavailable to them. Looking at female restaurant ownership of "meat and threes" during the mid-20th century can assist in providing a better understanding of a southern woman's experience at that time, as well as inform experiences today
Reading and writing landscape : a meeting of traditional Chinese garden methodology and the English landscape school garden by Xinyi Xiao( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While this is a design thesis with concepts tested on the grounds of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, it is also an investigation into the history of design theory. The underlying premise is that while the Botanical Garden (like gardens around the world) include a number of international gardens, those gardens too often only replicate forms void of any understanding of what drove a particular cultures' garden design moves in the first place. To test this idea a single site at the Botanical Garden is designed in two ways: first to represent theory and forms associated with traditional Chinese gardens and second to reflect ideas associated with the 18th century and early 19th century English Landscape School garden. For both of those garden types and traditions the thesis addresses site (the perspectives on place), sight (planning for view and vistas), and insight (the ideas and underlying philosophy associated with the design type). While these two design heritages have been after compared favorably as being about natural expression, the design solutions reflect both the commonalities and the differences between the two traditions
Evaluating ecotourism as a design strategy for the urban setting of the Yamuna River, Delhi, India by Rishika Chaudhury( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis questions the fundamental of ecotourism discourse and seeks to apply them in an urban setting. The possibility is tested through a framework of ecological urbanism, derived from an analysis of various persepective on urban ecology by ecologists and designers. Yamuna River Delhi, India provides for various challenges like water pollution, encroachment on Yamuna floodplain, and opportunities like the Ridges of Delhi, the biodiverse wetlands near Yamuna River, and Delhi's heritage tourism etc. Detailed analysis of these challenges and opportunities with the principles of ecotourism is done to achieve design priorities to create a platform for ecotourism to happen at an urban level. The three design approaches 'the green lens', 'the human lens' and 'balanced lens' reveal that management of Yamuna River floodplain, conserving Delhi's natural areas, bringing agricultural practices, and changing the perception of Yamuna River through public engagement can shape ecotourism in a city like Delhi
Advancing rainwater harvesting systems to help mitigate the urban flooding problems in China by Li Fu( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the acceleration of urbanization in Nanjing, China, urban flooding problems are becoming more and more serious. In order to help mitigate the urban flooding problems, this thesis aims to identify a suitable and artful rainwater harvesting system for application in Nanjing, China. Successful contemporary rainwater harvesting systems in other countries are explored, as well as the historical rainwater harvesting systems used in China. The concept of an artful rainwater harvesting system is discussed, and a set of design principles from classical Suzhou gardens is proposed to guide the aesthetics of rainwater harvesting in Nanjing. Additionally, integrating Low Impact Development (LID) methods with the rainwater harvesting system to achieve maximum utility is explored. Lastly, a conceptual design for a residential area in Nanjing, China, offers examples which can be used to guide future designs
Upturning roots : an analysis of the continental Alpine origins of American architecture by Paige Christian Ritter( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis analyzes the Continental Alpine influences on American Victorian era architecture. The Late Victorian era, 1850 to 1901, and the Arts and Crafts Movement, 1887 to 1920, produced a string of reactionary events, which altered English and American culture, particularly evident in architecture and the arts. The Picturesque movement, a response to the Industrial Revolution dominated the nineteenth century, inspiring travel to continental Europe. English and American travelers, intrigued by the local, vernacular architecture, borrowed its rudimentary construction and infused it into the stylization of Victorian era architecture. This thesis examines and forms connections between the unique characteristics of Continental Alpine architecture, the inspired architects of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the circulating publications promoting the mountainous styles, and the Victorian era architecture of England, France, and America mimicking Continental Alpine architecture to ultimately prove that American Victorian era architecture had some of its origins in continental Alpine Europe
Camp Merrie-Woode : the interaction of gender attitudes and historic preservation at an all-girls' summer camp by Olivia Paramore Head( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis offers an evaluation of the historic significance of an early-twentieth-century all-girls' camp from the perspective of gender theory and feminism. To accomplish this evaluation, this work specifically examines the case of Camp Merrie-Woode, and all-girls' camp, in Sapphire, North Carolina. It explores the impact of gender norms and relations on the development and preservation of the spatial organization, built environment, programming, and traditions at Camp Merrie-Woode to illuminate areas of women's history that have often been overlooked. Archival research, landscape documentation, and interviews were conducted to chronicle Camp Merrie-Woode's history, the landscape's physical changes, and its existing conditions. The study reveals that Camp Merrie-Woode is a significant cultural landscape, whose characteristics initially promoted gender equality by subtly subverting gender norms. The camp continues to empower its female campers through the preservation of its historically-significant landscape characteristics
Preserving sportsman's paradise : preservation takes flight at south Louisiana's duck hunting camps by Maria Lucille Rachal( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since their arrival in Louisiana, the Cajuns have had a unique connection to the landscape. Despite shifts in culture over the years, the Cajuns have always held on to this connection. One of the places where this connection is most obvious today is the duck hunting camp in the Acadiana region of South Louisiana. This thesis examines whether these camps could be considered historical resources and the implications for the preservation of intangible Cajun culture if these camps are to be recognized
Need-based evaluation of sewer access for single-family residential housing in Athens-Clarke county, Georgia by Alex Michael Smith( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has estimated that as much as 44 percent of the nation's sewer pipes will be in poor if not very poor conditions by 2020. Many Municipalities' sewer infrastructures are coming to an end of an investment cycle and new expenditures in replacing and upgrading, as well as, constructing new infrastructure will be needed. Conditions like these require attentive planning methods. Sewer has the capacity to steer and direct growth when coupled with regulatory planning, such as zoning, opportunities exist. To avoid regretted investments, Geographic Information Systems allows for the visualization of planning choices before they are made. The focus of this thesis is to provide a method that prioritizes future need, specifically in single-family residential housing. Single-family residential housing densities are defined by zoning designations; thus providing an opportunity to model future impact across a study area as well as provide comparative results
Jaunts and haunts : examining the effect of the dark tourism industry on Savannah's traditional blended image by Caitlyn Hungate( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Savannah's branded image has been deeply entrenched in the city's ability to market its Antibellum past. The tourism industry in the city has perpetuated the Old South stereotype. However, over the last thirty years there has been a shift in the tourism industry, a shift towards dark tourism. This type of tourism introduces the public to information about eerie topics, such as death and ghosts. It also introduces topics that are typically not discussed during traditional tours, such as slavery and folklore. Because of the tourism industry's connection to the city's brand, this shift could change Savannah's branded image
Improving a riparian buffer along Terrell Creek, Atlanta, GA to benefit neighborhood quality of life by Fuyu Yang( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis explores the possibilities of riparian buffer improvements specific to Terrell Creek which lies within the Proctor Creek watershed. The research integrates neighborhood quality of life with buffer improvement and assumes future development in the implementation of buffer design, which may not only effectively control runoff, erosion and pollution, but also improve the neighborhood's living conditions by exploring the environmental, social and economic quality of life. This thesis combines riparian buffer improvement with green infrastructure components and evaluates the effectiveness of each buffer type applying the assessment results to site-specific improvements. The primary foci of this thesis are the neighborhoods in the Terrell Creek watershed and the existing 25-foot riparian buffer along the creek. The thesis provides alternative buffer solutions and evaluates the functional effectiveness of each to neighborhoods, which could help the neighborhoods to find a feasible way to improve not only their creek, but the neighborhood quality of life as well
Georgia state parks : a technological approach to documentation and cultural resources by David Carl Dobbs( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Georgia State Parks possess a wide range of cultural and historic resources that require management and monitoring to help preserve them for future generations. Technology can serve as a tool to help directly, or indirectly, facilitate the preservation of these cultural and historic resources. This thesis evaluates the potential effectiveness of 3D terrestrial LiDAR scanning, photogrammetry, Unmanned Aerial Systems, and 3D printing to assist the preservation management and monitoring of Georgia State Park system cultural resources. Analysis of common preservation issues across 5 case study sites in the Georgia State Park system, and technologies used to resolve those issues, will afford a technology with the broadest application possibilities to be identified. As a result of the study, it was found that 3D terrestrial LiDAR scanning represents the technology with the broadest application to manage these cultural resources
Wheels of preservation : mobile structures and the National Register of Historic Places by Joshua Hamilton Baum( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis was written to provide evidence and justification for the inclusion of historically significant automobiles on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). During the first half of the twentieth century, the automobile transformed American culture and reshaped America's landscape. The NRHP includes thousands of individual listings of road-related resources which owe their significance to the automobile. Automobiles themselves, however, are not represented. Arguing for their inclusion, this thesis begins by examining the early history of automobiles in the United States and the history of the NRHP. Mobile structures listed on the NRHP, such as ships and aircraft, are then evaluated for similarities with automobiles. Finally, a privately-run register for historic automobiles is evaluated for compatibility with the NRHP
Integrating inclusive design concepts into landscape architecture : empowering people experiencing homeless through the design of inclusive public space by Chencheng He( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Environmental justice and the growth of homeless population demonstrate the need for positive integration of inclusive design with landscape architecture in public space. Inclusive design concepts provide a prerequisite to creating a framework and Participatory design offers a method of understanding, accommodating and advocating the needs of people experiencing homeless. The purpose of this thesis is to continue the discourse and synthesize research with emerging landscape and architectural design approaches and develop inclusive empowering landscape guidelines, and apply to the site in Athens, GA, to help empower people who are experiencing homelessness. The significance of this research lies in its ability to empower homeless, to provide models for sharing space between diverse users, to address and give voice to larger issues social and environmental justice
Planning for landscape change : how maps and apps promote heritage tourism through cultural landscape interpretation by Naomi Cara Braff( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis draws a connection between the intentions of both historic and present-day mapmakers to illustrate how maps are used to interpret the landscape for promotional purposes. A study of the cultural significance of historic landscapes, along with a comparison of spatial histories that use maps as a means of storytelling, will result in the development of a spatial history of the study area, McIntosh County, on the coast of Georgia. The importance of this study is to illustrate the value in storytelling through maps and their potential for use in promoting economic development through heritage tourism
Promoting active aging : integrating edible landscape into the healing environment of retirement communities in Athens, Georgia by Tao Wang( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The elderly population in the United States has increased dramatically during the past decades, and the aging issue both in America and around the world will be more serious in the future. This study aims to promote active aging of local retirement community residents by applying a landscape design proposal in two local retirement communities in Athens, Georgia, United States. Based on the literature review, case studies, and site investigations, the author conducted a design proposal by creating a retirement community healing environment to benefit the physical, psychological, and social aspects of the senior residents. This design application features integrating edible plants, regular ornamental plants, and symbolized Georgia piedmont landscape scenes into senior community healing environment design. The author assumes that this design application would serve as an ideal senior community healing environment to resolve existing site issues as well as further promote active aging of the senior residents
Planning for an urban river presence in East Athens by Patrick Ryan Sullivan( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis considers readdressing previous proposals for developing an urban riverfront presence in downtown Athens, Georgia. There have been several proposals for connecting the downtown core to the North Oconee River. As infill development continues downtown, the opportunity for sensible urban expansion to the river edge exists. Athens has a similar history to many other American cities founded on an edge of water. It includes the familiar progression of founding the city based on the river asset, exploiting its water resource to power a manufacturing economy, and ultimately neglecting it after technological change shifted the markets, leaving the river an abandoned environmental brownfield, disconnected from the urban realm. The goal is to provide information, site design proposal and strategies that will create a motive for Athens to consider smart development options to connect the downtown to its river, establishing an urban river presence
