The environment of residential area has a closed relationship with human’s living. It is not only a significant place of human activities, but also an important constituent in urban environment. Along with the development of society and economy, the residential landscape is also changing. However, in the course of development, many problems have appeared. These issues have had negative effect on the quality of landscape and seriously hindered the development of residential landscape design for the future.
In this thesis, residential landscape was selected as the research subject. Through the systematically organized survey and discussion of the case analysis, I was hoping to put forward some effective solutions for the existing problems and future planning.
The thesis included 6 parts. Part 1 was introduction, including research background, contents and methods. Part 2 and 3 were the theoretical basis of the paper. Relational concepts and theories were presented. The Garden City theory, Neighborhood theory and the theory of organism decentralization，which had a direct role in the planning of my case studies, were fully described. In addition, based on the information from literature, the classification for landscape was made, which was also the foundation of the analyzed cases. Next three parts of the thesis were the emphasis of the thesis. Three cases, two from China and one from Sweden were selected, analyzed and discussed in which both the advantages and disadvantages of design were mentioned. By means of these studies, we could get some inspiration about residential landscape and try to avoid the redundant mistakes in future. Finally, some planning approaches and principles had come up for modern residential landscape from this study.
