  • In Philadelphia, like many other industrial cities, the question of how to successfully redevelop contaminated land is one of the most crucial issues facing urban areas. Most strategies tend to favor the economic side of the redevelopment equation over ecological and social concerns. This excerpt from a research project investigates both these strategies by exploring possible scenarios for the redevelopment of brownfields corridors using an Alternative Futures methodology. Ford’s research, which was awarded joint honors for the Best Master’s Project of the year, was funded by the Dangermond Fellowship, a program administered by the Landscape Architecture Foundation with support from the American Society for Landscape Architects and ESRI to fund landscape architecture students incorporating GIS into yearlong reserch projects.
