Postindustrial Landscapes is a course of the Design Studio for master levels at the School of Architecture ETSAV UPC. All of the projects discussed in the studio deal with contemporary cities, and... More > strive to develop alternative proposals for improving urban habitability. The studio focuses on the analysis and planning of diverse abandoned spaces located around infrastructural borders where the presence of obsolete large industrial complexes create an opportunity for the reconversion of disputed urban areas. The industrial sites that are analyzed and object of urban recycling are: Asland Factory in Montcada i Reixach, Power Station in Sant Adrià del Besòs, Asland Factory in El Clot del Moro, Tanneries in Vic, Former Sheds in Barcelona Harbor, and Informal Settlements in Can Cuiàs. The contents of the book are structured around the 4 research themes of the studio: reconnecting, reprogramming, reenergizing and reconfiguring of the public space.< Less
HETEROGENEITY IN THE URBAN LANDSCAPE: IMPACTS ON HYDROLOGIC PROCESSES AND NITROGEN POLLUTION By Monica Lipscomb Smith
eBook (PDF): $0.00
This research evaluated the usefulness of the commonly used National Land Cover Database for deriving urban hydrologic parameters, defined metrics linking suburban landscape structure and nitrogen... More > fluxes, and determined variance of hydrologic properties of residential lawns according to social and physical factors. Results suggested that the NLCD is insufficient for urban hydrologic studies due to biases and variability of these datasets. Nitrate concentrations of suburban streams were best characterized by watershed infrastructure. Septic-managed watersheds’ stream nitrate correlated with population density, septic location, and presence of wetlands. Reduced saturated infiltration rates in residential lawns caused only marginal differences in overland flow when compared to regional rain records. Of the factors assessed in this dissertation, waste management infrastructure was defined as the most critical feature explaining nitrate dynamics in the urban landscape.< Less

Agri-Urbanism proposes alternative models for long-term sustainable living as conceptual vignettes that nest civic organization, infrastructure, economy, and ecology as a complete community. The book... More > presents urban and suburban scales of development that viably blend agriculture, forestry, transportation, commerce and housing within a compact 20,000-person community that globally occupies 17,000 acres of sparsely developed and natural lands. Students and faculty from across disciplines at the University of Florida worked collaboratively to prepare 12 master plans and 37 detailed community program elements that employ sustainable living concepts. They include specific urban program elements such as housing, civic buildings, commerce, transit, and infrastructures of energy production and water reclamation that are necessary for the ecological integration of agriculture and community.< Less
