Next is land: the larger place, the context in which all buildings dwell. No building can be considered without considering the land, locally, globally. What we build is always informed by the land on which it lives. And what we build must positively respond to that land that place, for durability and success.
And land is a building in its own right, a place to be considered, modified, restored and otherwise utilized in sustainable, durable and respectful manners. Thus we see shaping the land, through planning, action or restoration, as an intimate part of our architecture.
We affect the land when we build, and we affect the land in our actions.
