Md Ratin, Landscape Architecture for Sustainable Urbanisation - Master´s Programme


The subject scope of this thesis is about built structure in the landscape close to the water in a specific place, Karlholm, in the municipality of Tierp, Sweden. Karlholm Strand is one of many places in Sweden where there is no shoreline protection. Because of this, there is a current plan by a developer, which can lead to hamper the access to the shore for the public. I wanted to investigate the development of the project based on planning ethics, the practices that make a place, community development, and landscape aesthetics. I wanted to further investigate the proposed plan of the housing area and produce an alternative plan based on the surrounding landscape, a theoretical framework of the above-mentioned points, different study tools like, SymbioCity approach, interviewing the locals, analysing the site, and case study, and sketching.
