New dwellings and commercial buildings in coastal regions has for some time now been a focal point. Old industrial harbours are regenerated into modern living areas with a recreational purpose. In Sweden the marina has not taken part in this development, thus remained in the monotony and large-scale structures of modernism. This graduation thesis looks upon the marina from a landscape architects point of view, where the marina foremost is a social venue. By revealing and discussing the development of the marina, its design and environmental consequence theories of the marinas future is presented. These theories are later tested upon the costal village of Rydebäck, south of Helsingborg. The thesis is structured in three parts: marina knowledge, proposal and resources. In the first part the historical development of the marina from prehistory time to now is discussed. It shows the progress from a working place to a modern urban venue. Important factors for how a marina is conceived and can be used are examined in the chapter of form. A marina has to contain a number of functions. These functions are slowly changing over time which brings a need to show what the future has to offer. This thesis contains a catalogue for the future with suggestions of new functions and visions. At the end of the first part the principles for a marina are presented and discussed together with its environmental impact. Some visionary solutions are offered, for example concerning artificial reefs and rising sea levels. The proposal contains a description of the site and an analysis of Rydebäck. The proposal is a realisation of some of the ideas presented in the first part. At the end reflections on how well the proposal has adapted to the site and the implementation of new ideas are presented. The final part, resources, is a collection of interviews with a group of experts in different areas. These interviews have been the basis of the results for this thesis. Here, a deeper discussion about the environmental impact of the marina, the experience and its future is presented. The goal for this thesis is to present exciting visions for the marinas of tomorrow and illuminate its potential. My hope is that this thesis will inspire to new interesting venues in marinas, on the terms of Mother Nature.
