dc.description.abstract This design practicum is focused on how rock climbing can be used to explore the landscape of Winnipeg. Rock climbing, is a balance of the climber’s strength, balance, and mental focus, and the physical make up and conditions of the site. These factors are manifested in different combinations from site to site and climber to climber, making each climbing experience unique. It is the unique tactile and kinesthetic landscape experience that this practicum is designed to address. When climbing, it is best to have a thorough understanding of the material one is climbing on, and therefore the various materials found on the chosen urban sites were explored through the formation of hand crafted climbing holds. Finally, three designs were developed to understand how a variety of under used and forgotten spaces in Winnipeg could be transformed through provisions for climbing as well as the act of climbing itself. en_US
