Landfill re-morial : a postmodern reclamation of the City of Fargo landfill
More InformationShow full item record
This thesis takes a quantitative look at closed landfills to determine a feasible and sustainable solution that can be used in the City of Fargo Landfill, which is expected to close between 2019 and 2023 without a post-closure plan. The solution proposed is the creation of a recreational park for the Fargo-Moorhead community. Some of the elements included within this park are Habitational Winter Sports Hills, Biproduct Management Sculptures, and Interactive Outdoor Sculpture Classrooms. The intent behind these amenities is to create year-round uses for the park, which will attract site users and allow them to remember the experience. The design of this park has two purposes. The first is to make an amenity of value for the community. The second purpose is to educate the people of Fargo-Moorhead about how their waste management practices can be changed and how a cradle-to-cradle mentality in waste management is beneficial to them.
