"City In The Park,” Greenway Network Concept Of High-Density Cities: Adaptation Of Singapore Park Connector Network In Chinese Cities, Guifang Wang, Huawei Li, Yang Yang, Sándor Jombach, Guohang Tian 2019 Szent István University, Faculty of Landscape Architecture and Urbanism, Department of Landscape Planning and Regional Development

"City In The Park,” Greenway Network Concept Of High-Density Cities: Adaptation Of Singapore Park Connector Network In Chinese Cities, Guifang Wang, Huawei Li, Yang Yang, Sándor Jombach, Guohang Tian

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

This paper uses the “Park Connector Network” (PCN) as a model, to analyze Singapore’s experience and to cope with the dramatic increase in population and urbanization, and then to apply this experience to Chinese high-density cities. The research goal is to provide guidance for the adaptation of “City in the Park” in China and the construction of high-density urban green space systems. The concept of “City in the Park” that was born in 2018 in China can be related directly to the “Park Connector Network” model.


Challenges Of Metropolitan Scale Green Infrastructure: The Sydney Green Grid, Catherine B. Evans 2019 Faculty of the Built Environment, UNSW

Challenges Of Metropolitan Scale Green Infrastructure: The Sydney Green Grid, Catherine B. Evans

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

In 2017, the Government Architect of New South Wales launched a draft policy known as Greener Places (Government Architect NSW 2017a). The new policy is underpinned by the Sydney Green Grid (SGG), an initiative pitched as transformative in its power to promote sustainable development, improve connectivity and enhance green infrastructure (GI) networks across the metropolitan region and the state (Government Architect NSW 2017b). How successful will the SGG be in delivering “greener places” for urban areas across the state?

This paper exams the claims of the transformative power of the SGG with a focus on two related objectives. First, because ...


Greenway Planning Of Guangdong Province, Zhou Lu, Bing Wu, Xiaoguang Liu, Yuanxiang Wu 2019 Harbin Institute of Technology, School of Architecture, Dept. of Landscape

Greenway Planning Of Guangdong Province, Zhou Lu, Bing Wu, Xiaoguang Liu, Yuanxiang Wu

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Guangdong Province is located in the southernmost region of mainland China with a total area of 180,000 square kilometers. The GDP ranks first in China, and the economic aggregate accounts for 1/8 of China’s total. As the economic development continues, the fragmentation of ecological land is becoming more dangerous. To solve this problem, the local government organized the master planning of environmental protection. The provincial greenway planning (also called ecological corridor) proposed in this paper is an essential part of it. The total length of planned greenways in Guangdong Province is 2,836 kilometers, and its primary ...

Fábos, Jack Ahern, Benjamin Breger, Theodore S. Eisenman, Sándor Jombach, Laszlo Kollányi, Mark S. Lindhult, Robert L. Ryan, István Valánszki

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning is held every three years to bring together experts who are influencing landscape planning, policy making and greenway planning from the local to international level. It is intended to highlight recent trends and expand the literature about landscape and greenway planning. The aim is to explore how landscape architects and planners from different countries have approached greenway planning and to understand how greenways have been tailored to each county’s unique geographical, cultural, and political circumstances. The theme for the 2019 conference, Urban Greenway Planning: Adapting to Expanding and Contracting Cities, explores ...


Greenways For Climate Adaptation: Avoiding The ‘Green Paradox’ While Improving Urban Resiliency, Jacobien F. Kuiper, Elisabeth Hamin Infield 2019 University of Massachusetts Amherst, Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning

Greenways For Climate Adaptation: Avoiding The ‘Green Paradox’ While Improving Urban Resiliency, Jacobien F. Kuiper, Elisabeth Hamin Infield

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Greenway planning and design is an important approach to climate adaptation in urban areas. In this paper we bring together literature on green gentrification, climate adaptation, and equity in an early exploration of equity issues specific to urban greenways for climate adaptation (‘adaptation-greenways’). Similar to environmental risks and green space access, impacts of climate change are distributed unevenly across urban space. Climate-vulnerable communities are often minority- and lower-income neighborhoods. Greenways can redress existing inequities (‘pre-equity issues’) by providing green space access and climate adaptation benefits in vulnerable communities. Recent projects demonstrate that greenways, while redressing existing inequities, can introduce new ...


Greenness Indicator For Spatial And Settlement Planning Based On Ndvi And Lai Indicators, Laszlo Kollányi, Klaudia Máté, Viola Prohászka, Edina D. Fóris, Ágnes Sallay 2019 Szent István University, Department of Landscape Planning and Regional Development

Greenness Indicator For Spatial And Settlement Planning Based On Ndvi And Lai Indicators, Laszlo Kollányi, Klaudia Máté, Viola Prohászka, Edina D. Fóris, Ágnes Sallay

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

In the international practice of green infrastructure research, many indicators have been developed to measure the social functions, naturalness, the role of the urban climate, interconnection, networking, multifunctionality, and ecosystem services. In 2007, an indicator of biological activity value (BA) was introduced into the Hungarian town planning practice and legislation, which shows the intensity of green areas in areas to be built and is the basis for counting land use changes of settlements. However, the actual biomass, which can be measured by remote sensing devices, has not yet been considered in determining the indicator values. The main purpose of this ...


Greenway Exploration In The Satellite Jungle: Discovery Of Urban And Rural Green Network With Satellite Image Analysis In Hungary, Sándor Jombach, Huawei Li, Guifang Wang, István Valánszki, Krisztina F. Kovács 2019 Szent István University, Hungary, Faculty of Landscape Architecture and Urbanism, Department of Landscape Planning and Regional Development

Greenway Exploration In The Satellite Jungle: Discovery Of Urban And Rural Green Network With Satellite Image Analysis In Hungary, Sándor Jombach, Huawei Li, Guifang Wang, István Valánszki, Krisztina F. Kovács

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Over the last few decades of growing data production in the field of remote sensing and GIS, we have experienced a rapid development of methods and tools in green network analysis. A series of journal articles, methodological and technical guidelines describe how to map green system based on aerial photography and satellite imagery. Many studies stress that green networks have a climatic conditioning role and outstanding ecological significance in landscapes. Environmental agreements and sustainability aspects emphasize the need for mapping and managing green infrastructure in urban and rural landscapes. The usual question is: What are the elements of green infrastructure ...


Palermo, Italy: The Coast Road, Monica Manfredi 2019 Politecnico di Milano, Department of Architecture and Urban Studies

Palermo, Italy: The Coast Road, Monica Manfredi

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

This paper proposes a re-reading of the work of Roberto Collovà dedicated to Palermo and its coastline. It interprets, in a perspective paper, the arguments contained in his research as suggestions for the construction of landscape research to condition, through their appearance, a new way to see and interpret places and their potential.

Rereading his studies, his drawings and his observations suggests the construction of a method of recognition of the existence of a landscape, in this case of a greenway and its potential, within an existing urban fabric. The historical center, the fragments of urban spaces, and the fragments ...


Identifying And Classifying, Quantifying And Visualizing Green Infrastructure Via Urban Transects In Rome, Italy And Sydney, Australia, Simon J. Kilbane, Daniele La Rosa 2019 University of Technology, Sydney

Identifying And Classifying, Quantifying And Visualizing Green Infrastructure Via Urban Transects In Rome, Italy And Sydney, Australia, Simon J. Kilbane, Daniele La Rosa

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Green Infrastructure is increasingly recognised as an approach to deliver a wide-ranging set of ecosystem services in cities and to operationalize concepts of urban resilience through the better delivery of urban planning, water sensitive urban design and a broad diversity of open space types. This paper argues that the first step in the delivery of effective Green Infrastructure planning and hence ecosystem services is the identification, visualisation and calculus of the full spectrum of existing open space types within urban contexts. To test this idea two case study cities – Rome and Sydney – were selected for their differing geographical origins and ...


Recognizing Greenway Network For Quantifying Students Experience On Campus-Based Universities: Assessing The Campus Outdoor Spaces At San Diego State University, Mohammed Gabr, Hisham Elkadi, Claudia Trillo 2019 Department of Architectural Engineering and Environmental Design, Arab Academy for Science & Technology, Alexandria, Egypt

Recognizing Greenway Network For Quantifying Students Experience On Campus-Based Universities: Assessing The Campus Outdoor Spaces At San Diego State University, Mohammed Gabr, Hisham Elkadi, Claudia Trillo

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

This paper evaluates the potential of creating a green infrastructure – more specifically, an urban greenway – and its contribution the students’ campus experience, with emphasis on the outdoor university activities. To achieve best value for money – particularly in the current financial climate, with severe budget cuts constraining universities – justifying investments on campus outdoor spaces such as greenways, relies on a clear demonstration of their link to the overall success of the campus. Attempts of quantify the benefits from investments on such spaces are challenged by the scarcity of studies on the relationship between students’ experience and design (and related cost) of ...

Greenways As Indigenous Cultural Pathways: Healing Landscape And Peoples One Step At A Time In The South West Of Western Australia, Simon J. Kilbane 2019 University of Technology, Sydney

Greenways As Indigenous Cultural Pathways: Healing Landscape And Peoples One Step At A Time In The South West Of Western Australia, Simon J. Kilbane

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The South West of Western Australia (SWWA) is widely known as one of the world’s most biodiverse regions and a recognised biodiversity hotspot. However, since European colonisation approximately 200 years ago, this landscape has been cleared, fragmented and degraded at large and small scales, a problem magnified by being one of the planet’s most vulnerable locations to climate change. This region also hosts one of the world’s longest continuous cultures, the Nyungar people, who have lived in the SWWA for at least 38,000 years. However following colonisation Nyungar land management practices – that once connected the region ...

Cultural Ecosystem Services And Local Identity – A Ppgis Case Study From Budapest Metropolitan Region, István Valánszki, Sándor Jombach, Krisztina F. Kovács, Asmaa Abualhagag Ahmed, Fernando A. Mendez Garzón, Gabriella Balha

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Several studies and international conventions highlight the importance of public participation in the process of strategy building. In spite of all these initiatives, public participation methods are not common tools in the practice (especially in Central-Eastern-Europe). In the frames of our research, we applied the ppGIS (Public Participation GIS) method, a special, mostly new tool in Hungary, in order to bridge the gap between the scientific world and local citizens. The method combines community based mapping with GIS techniques. It aims to foster the integration of the public into the process of evaluation, planning, and decision making using GIS technology ...


The Current Relocation Practice In Chinese Historic Districts From The Perspective Of Residents' Willingness To Relocate: A Case Study Of Baitasi Historic District, Beijing, Ran Wei 2019 University of Pennsylvania

The Current Relocation Practice In Chinese Historic Districts From The Perspective Of Residents' Willingness To Relocate: A Case Study Of Baitasi Historic District, Beijing, Ran Wei

Theses (Historic Preservation)

After years of trials, China has been shifting the model of historic district regeneration from massive destruction and construction to incremental and small-scale preservation, including changing the complete and involuntary relocation of original residents to negotiable and partial relocation. During the process, residents’ willingness to relocate is important for the decision-makers to consider who is likely to move and who is likely to stay. To investigate the residents’ willingness to relocate for the purpose of improving the relocation and regeneration practice in Chinese historic districts, this research uses Baitasi Historic District in Beijing as an example and focuses on those ...


Reconfiguring The Republic Dream: New Equitable Housing Types In Post-Socialist Tbilisi, Irena Wight 2019 University of Pennsylvania

Reconfiguring The Republic Dream: New Equitable Housing Types In Post-Socialist Tbilisi, Irena Wight

Theses (Historic Preservation)

Post-socialist Tbilisi is a city with a rich yet rapidly disappearing built heritage. The city’s long and layered histories as well as its location at the crossroads between Asia and Europe have shaped its urban and architectural forms to reflect its multicultural and cosmopolitan character. Traditional building types demonstrate the confluence of cultures and the inhabitants’ open social ideals, as gradients of privacy blend between private, public, and semiprivate. The Art Nouveau courtyard house embodies these values as its internal composition reveals that the shift toward Art Nouveau accompanied a broader redesign of domestic space at this moment. Further ...


“Where Shall We Go?”: Race, Displacement, And Preservation At Slabtown And Yorktown Battlefield, Jacob Torkelson 2019 University of Pennsylvania

“Where Shall We Go?”: Race, Displacement, And Preservation At Slabtown And Yorktown Battlefield, Jacob Torkelson

Theses (Historic Preservation)

Slabtown, a community descended from refugee slaves and freedpersons, existed at Yorktown Battlefield from the 1860s until the 1970s when it was intentionally demolished by the National Park Service. Colonial National Historical Park edited out Slabtown’s legacy, wholly disregarding the contributions of African Americans to the heritage of Yorktown Battlefield. Why was this decision made? What happened to Slabtown? And what does this mean for the future of Yorktown Battlefield? This thesis advocates for the preservation of landscape traces in Slabtown, and seeks to prove that the voids and absence of buildings are a powerful preservation and interpretive resource ...


Habits Of Housing Policy: The Role Of Historical Decision-Making Tendencies In Shaping Contemporary Philadelphia Policy, Katherine Randall 2019 University of Pennsylvania

Habits Of Housing Policy: The Role Of Historical Decision-Making Tendencies In Shaping Contemporary Philadelphia Policy, Katherine Randall

Theses (Historic Preservation)

This thesis assesses the extent to which historic decision-making tendencies influence contemporary Philadelphia policy. Philadelphia has a distinctive stock of rowhouses built throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries which today provides more housing units than are needed by the population. The excess housing stock means that Philadelphia could invest in reuse rather than new construction to meet demand for affordable rental housing, a path which avoids demolition and displacement in communities which have faced disinvestment in the past. However, current Philadelphia policy appears to favor new construction of housing.

Using primary and secondary sources, this thesis examines patterns in past ...


Private Preservation: Using Garden City-Inspired Legal Tools To Preserve Communities And Heritage, Santiago Preciado Ovalle 2019 University of Pennsylvania

Private Preservation: Using Garden City-Inspired Legal Tools To Preserve Communities And Heritage, Santiago Preciado Ovalle

Theses (Historic Preservation)

This thesis looks at the legacy of Ebenezer Howard’s Garden City vision, and analyzes how a reappropriation of privatism and communal land ownership and management can work to preserve communities and heritage as an alternative set of tools to public preservation. Using the law of property to explore private legal and economic preservation tools, this thesis explores the precedents of private governments and the use of restrictive covenants as tools for private preservation. Using the legacy of communal land ownership and management, the thesis explores the use of land trusts and Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), and their potential ...


Permanent Impermanence: Preserving The Garden Room At Frank Lloyd Wright's Desert Camp, Taliesin West, Ashley Losco 2019 University of Pennsylvania

Permanent Impermanence: Preserving The Garden Room At Frank Lloyd Wright's Desert Camp, Taliesin West, Ashley Losco

Theses (Historic Preservation)

Since Taliesin West is both an active architectural school and historic site, this thesis study explores the use of “progressive authenticity” in the preservation of the Garden Room at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West. Progressive authenticity is a preservation theory that focuses on the values and cultural heritage of a site, known as the intangible heritage, as well as the physical historic fabric, the tangible heritage. Progressive authenticity argues that every layer of change, including new changes, is part of a historic site’s identity. From construction in 1939 to today, every layer of change by Wright, his wife ...


An Evaluation Of The Impacts Of Replacement Reserve Studies On The Stewardship Of Historic Houses Of Worship, Allison King 2019 University of Pennsylvania

An Evaluation Of The Impacts Of Replacement Reserve Studies On The Stewardship Of Historic Houses Of Worship, Allison King

Theses (Historic Preservation)

Reserve studies are a facilities maintenance planning tool created by the common interest development industry in the United States that could be a useful tool for heritage site managers to financially plan for maintenance and repairs. Unexpected building related costs can be a threat to the financial stability of religious organizations and other types of nonprofits housed in historic buildings because these organizations require lead time to raise funds. Reserve studies could be a useful tool for site managers to financially prepare plan for repairs and generate realistic reserves to cover future expenditures. Reserve study reports include a physical assessment ...
