dc.description.abstract Cape Town's iconic geographical phenomena and the relentless urban expansion have resulted in the isolation and expulsion of nature to the urban edge, marking the protected boundaries of Table Mountain National park. It is within these boarders that a forgotten landscape remains as a marker of a time and its processes. This artefact serves as the point of departure for my dissertation, ground in an interest in the relationship between man and nature. This interest manifests in an architectural response; rescripting of the Vredehoek Tin Mine, opposing the very destructive nature of its establishment through the addition of ecological programming. This reprogrammed site-specific architecture serves as a host to a legacy of landscape urbanism, utilising the existing infrastructure in order to reconnect the man-made urban environment to the natural landscape of Table Mountain. This is achieved through the establishment of an urban ecological park, composing of smaller interventions along its route that surface man-made and natural interactions. en_ZA
