Abstract: 

This thesis explores ways in which the built environment contributes to collective memory and informs a sense of place within the cultural landscape of Moncton, New Brunswick. The intention is to respond to the current changes in the landscape from a cultural perspective as the city attempts to remedy environmental and ecological issues that have transpired as a result of human intervention.

By preserving the infrastructure that contributed to the current conditions of the site, while integrating new architectural elements, the proposal draws awareness to the history of the site, celebrates the identity of the place, and encourages a new perspective on the changing landscape. Through this, new spaces for cultural activities emerge to re-establish a lost connection between the city and the river.
