    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

    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

    hey, wow - when I saw your code name in here, I thought, could it be, another Waldorf person?

    my husband was on the board of the Acadia Waldorf school - our neice goes to the Lexington Waldorf school - we still try to keep a Waldorf household though our school closed - the past principal tutors our 7 year old daughter once a week

    anyway, welcome to the fray from downeast Maine!
