dc.description.abstract This dissertation is an effort towards a better understanding of public open space within Pretoria [Tshwane]. The author identified a lack of freedom of expression within the Pretoria parks and that people actually have a need to be able to express themselves. The study investigates Carnivalesque as a means of human expression, as well as Loftus Versfeld stadium which occasionally, during sporting events, allows for freedom of expression. Loftus Versfeld provides this incredible experience which unfortunately occurs on only a few weekends within a year. The site becomes derelict and the stadium becomes a white elephant and monofunctional space. A focus is also on the future predicted growth of the area surrounding the Loftus Versfeld stadium and investigates resilient landscapes for the future. The design objective is to create a multifunctional resilient landscape where people are able to express themselves freely. The proposal also finds a balance between a programmed and unprogrammed landscape as well as a robust and ecological landscape. en
