More InformationShow full item record
This thesis is a remediation greenway project with an emphasis on waterfront revitalization and phytoremediation. Researched greenways focus on the conservation, recreation, and non-motorized transportation of a maintained corridor of protected open space, however, very little research focuses on the incorporation of phytoremediation into these protected greenways. This thesis’s research explores the relationship between phytoremediation and a waterfront park through studied principles comprising of: ecological movement, remediation educational practices,and transportation and circulation connections. These aspects are implemented through the design of a multi-level park, linking the Willamette River in the South Waterfront District of Portland to existing trail systems and the urban community of Downtown Portland.
