    Introduce myself

    Hello,
    My interest in planing is the relation of landsccape with architecture.
    I am very impressed with the goethean approach of Rudolf Steiner in his Goetheanum and the building around it, in Dornach, Switzerland.
    A local, U.K., favorite of mine is Repton favorite work: Kidbrooke Park in Sussex and how Devaris Manteufel in the 20th century manag to improve Rex Raab intuition and update the 18th Century lay out.
    Iwould be interested to hear from people who have "modernised" prveious ladscape lay out, beyond integration or additionof new building.

    Another interest is how one can observe in past plannig, Red Books, or lay out - or create - a relation with the Seasonal element of the landscape. Seasonal is takenbroadly,either the Seasons, or air and light element of summer ripening process, as opposed to the stone of winter, the heat of of autumn or the germinating or watery element of spring.. Here the Garden of the Royal Palace in Shri Lanka comes to mind as an age old attempt.

    Many thanks for your responses.
    François

    Howdy thar I like plants. Plants are good. Just planted some muscadine vines last week. Looking good.

    Welcome from the Hoosier State.
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Hello, from Irving, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
