Landscape urbanism develops methods for effectively synthesizing constraints from different disciplines and domains of production into an operative framework, absorbing knowledge that ranges from environmental engineering, urban strategy ,landscape ecology and the development industry. Yet it exceeds hybridization, as it stimulates environmental , social and economic processes in abstract systems of relationships, attempting a shift from teleological programming to open diagramming, from techniques of imposition to techniques of interposition. My graduation project focused on urban development at the edge of the city, the derelict spaces. It addressed, and through an approach and methodology influenced by landscape urbanism; the design of public space at the outskirt of the City alongside the Amman small River. I concentrated mainly on environmental protection in general and water harvesting in particular through generative design tools.
