El Ghandour, Ibrahim, 2012. Landscrapers : architecture & landscape in a dialogue. Second cycle, A2E. Alnarp: SLU, Dept. of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management (from 130101)



This thesis is discussing one aspect of design which is common in two interrelated professions (Architecture and Landscape Architecture). This aspect is designing a building with a green roof that can fit in both an architectural and a landscape context.
Landscrapers is the name of this aspect. Moreover, the space that will be a result of using this aspect could be a public, private, semi-public or semi-private space. In other words, how people would use these spaces? The thesis is exploring the evolution of this aspect, and how it is developed by discussing different situation from past and present. Also I am discussing the linkage between landscape and architecture in different aspects, exploring the different levels of integration between landscape and architecture. Finally, I will use this knowledge for experimenting to build landscrapers in a residential area called Kronetorp in Arlöv, Sweden to test the concept of Landscrapers, and see if it will be suitable for the area and discuss if it will be acceptable by people.
