Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA)
The thesis studies methods for bioregional navigation based on raising awareness and creating an understanding of the existing landscape across scale – from global to local. It examines how the concept of the bioregion can be incorporated into a lifestyle and its daily experiences by allowing a more meaningful recontextualization of daily-used products through the natural resources that sustain them. The thesis takes native bogs for cranberry production in South-Eastern Massachusetts as an example and provides a field guide for different types of users – consumers, workers, and constituents – to experience, test and explore the landscape. In tracing the cranberry production supply chain to its source, the work translates ways of thinking about and noticing the landscape to explore how it can add value to products with local characteristics.
