Abstract:This thesis aims to redefine the traditional rural landscape of the upper section of the Embarras River (UER) in Champaign County, Illinois. To date, there are four issues existing in this landscape: flooding, impaired waterway, extinction of endangered species, and lack of identity. Integrated with analytical and design approaches, the objective is to transform the site into an eco-friendly and recreational landscape for the sake of multiple benefits.
