Type of DegreeLandscape Thesis
MetadataShow full item record
In a world where design and thinking have become quantifiable and didactic, the profession of landscape architecture has become saturated with ecological design. Data-driven methodology is practical and necessary; however, we, as landscape architects, begin to detract from our position as artists of the land. We need to value the ephemeral qualities of the land in order to evoke awareness. Landscape Architects should design immersive and experiential landscapes that transcend our understanding of the world not only for ecological benefit, but also for each individual experience. Transformative landscapes are the gateway to contemplative revelation.
