The Reclamation and Reoccupation of the Burloak Employment Lands: Towards a Sustainable Community
MetadataShow full item record
By examining the interconnected relationship between humanity and the environment we live in, this thesis aims to bring new sustainable design approaches to a toxic industrial area known as the Burloak Employment Lands in Oakville, Ontario. At the heart of this vast site, a new train station is proposed as a catalyst for enriching and nourishing the local community’s correlation to its immediately adjacent natural life. Additionally, the design of this station is embedded within an urban planning proposal that aims to lift the overall quality of life in the community by restoring ecological health to these wounded lands.
