Throughout North America and Europe, industrial landscapes once defined cities and neighbourhoods, with factories, warehouses and smokestacks. Now, parks, museums, new housing, and office buildings define great cities. Industries have been searching for more efficient and cheaper places to produce goods, sending developments out of metropolitan areas. Planners, architects, and landscape architects are now tasked and challenged with dealing with the crumbling land that has been left behind (Berens, 2011, pp.ix). These spaces are most often located near city centres or along waterfronts where they would have been most advantageous at the time. These post-industrial landscapes are often a challenge to reintegrate into the surrounding communities because of their impaired environmental resources (Loures, 2015). Through the use of design, we can tell the story of reinvention and memory.
