Smits, Christiaan, 2017. Under himlen, på gränssnittet till land och hav : arbete med gränssnittet mellan land och hav på Inre Hamnen i Helsingborg. Second cycle, A2E. Alnarp: SLU, Dept. of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management (from 130101)



This thesis is structured into four chapters showcasing different
stages of the design process. These four stages are inspired by the
four traces concept method developed by Christophe Girot (1999).
Throughout these chapters you get gradually introduced to the way
of working and a generated respect for the site of Inre Hamnen and
the city of Helsingborg. A way of working that is characterized by
experimenting with different adaptation measures to rising sea levels
within a site-specific context. In this report the focus is on fascination,
creating different narratives that range in tone between objective and
subjective. Rather then working from a central research question the
report is written around questions and challenges that came up during
the design process. This narrative can be found in the structure created
by following the four-trace concepts method.
Throughout the thesis fascinations, encountered uncertainties, sitespecific
characteristics and the found solutions are presented through
diagrams, photos, drawings and written text. A specific tone and style
engage the reader into the site, design process and design proposal.
In the last phases you get introduced to the solutions grounded in the
unique inspiration and knowledge generated in the earlier phases.
Different responsive adaptation measures that are preserving and
enhancing the experience of the site are presented. The new interesting
yet safe relationships between land and sea in the site of Inre Hamnen
are communicated in the form of a graphic narrative. A graphic
narrative that takes you on a fictive journey that allows the reader to
experience the new waterfront.
