dc.description.abstract What is Wilderness? Examining wilderness sites throughout the city of Winnipeg, this practicum explores how the narratives and stories of a place affects the recognition of a landscape in relation to wilderness identity. As definitions struggle to define the reality of the wilderness condition, it becomes clear that wilderness is not one type of landscape but a series of wilderness types. Theory is used to establish these types while delving into the identity of wilderness and its relationship to landscape architecture. These wilderness types are then analyzed through case study examples taken from various landscapes throughout the city of Winnipeg. To further explore the relationship of wilderness identity and landscape architecture, the practicum results in the application of wilderness theory to the design of four campground sites within the area of Point Douglas. Each site was chosen for its wilderness characteristics which were then highlighted through design. en_US
