dc.description.abstractGiven the increased complexity and uncertainty of the landscape milieux, mapping as a liberating, enabling, creative activity plays a pivotal role in the design process and affects how we understand and act upon the world. This project employed multiscale mapping to not only interpret, speculate on and explore the performance of an urban public riverfront (Tui Glen Reserve within Henderson Creek Corridor), but also to generate a responsive site design incorporating various landscape performance requirements revealed by the multiscale mapping process. Although the information that emerged from the multiscale maps was inevitably influenced by my mapping protocol and agenda, the project shows that multiscale mapping offers a potentially powerful framework for an improved understanding of the landscape, which in turn, may generate a design capable of responding to different conditions at different scales.en_NZ
