This research inquires into new ways of associating ecological planning and conflict resolution in the recycling of boundaries and presents the concept of Thirdscapes. Thirdscapes investigates existing constructs of thirding or trialectics as conceptual frameworks that can assist us in the resolution of conflict and in the construction of sustainable landscapes of reconciliation. The concept is proposed as an alternative to the polarized and dialogical entrenchments of our mental and physical scapes and includes: Third Landscapes as they relate to spontaneous natures containing greater biodiversity and leading to ecological planning; Third Spaces as they define our relationship to the Other; Third Time, the time that corresponds to the process of constructing memory and achieving sustainable reconciliation, amongst others. More specifically, the concept will be applied to the Liminal Landscapes located within boundaries and territories in conflict, as an instrument to address the rift between societies, territories and ecologies, and as a new lens that can lead to innovative ways of thinking and projecting these spaces of rupture. In doing so, it proposes a sustainable process that associates environmental remediation with psychological healing and addresses the questions of memory and reconstruction.
