Manufactured Sites focuses on the legacy of industrial production and pollutants on the contemporary landscape and their influence on new scientific research, innovative site technologies and progressive site design. The coming quarter will have to address the legacy of late nineteenth century industrialization. This area of research and development will become increasingly important as diminishing 'greenfield' sites, urban renewal and economic growth will require the reuse and renewal of manufactured sites. It presents innovative environmental, engineering and design approaches along with ongoing research and built projects of international significance. Topics included are soil bioromediation, phytoremediation brownfield development, structural soil, landfill capping and revegetation and bioengineering for soil and water quality. Ground breaking approaches to the design of contaminated and including public parks and commercial sites are outlined. Contributions range from innovative scientific and engineering research from industry and federal agencies to contemporary international and regional professional reclamation and redevelopment projects such as the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, the A.G Thyssen steelworks and blast furnace plant in Germany's Ruhr region to landfilling operations at Killingdon near London's Heathrow Airport (now Stockley Business Park).
