My work deals with large scale design of the urban fringe. The thesis is divided in three parts; "Current viewpoints", "Infra City – conditions " and "Infra City – project". In the first part, I go through the history of trade shortly. Then I discuss the concept of nature, which ends up in a linkage between natural science and aesthetics in landscape architecture. The link between those two makes a project stronger and more multifunctional. The object of my case, Infra City, is a mall situated north of Stockholm on both sides of the E4 motorway going to Arlanda airport. In the second part of my work I describe and analyse Infra City and the area surrounding it, to see what the conditions are for making a landscape project in this place. I also note the thoughts and awakening ideas Infra City gives, and present this in a concept chapter. The last part of the thesis is about my project in Infra City. I state my intentions and why I suggest the idea with big planted areas around E4. The last chapters deal with future development of the project, my methods and how the process took place while working on the thesis.
