    Abstract

    [Truncated] This study examines the subject of urban tropical landscape design and carries out a landscape assessment of the Kuching City Riverfront.

    A research objective is to identify and reinforce the contribution that various interpretations of landscape can help landscape designers define and carry out a landscape assessment of the Kuching City Riverfront. A rigorous and integrated landscape assessment process can then form the basis for contexualising and directing ecological landscape design opportunities for Kuching's riverfront.

    The study recognises that the word "landscape" has slippery connotations which can be interpreted in many ways. To overcome this problem the interpretation and analysis of Kuching's riverfront is assessed in the context of defined interpretations of landscape. The first approach carries out an assessment of the 'landscape as place'. The second focuses on the assessment of 'landscape as system' and the third provides an assessment of the 'landscape as meaning'.
