LA 389 - Landscape Architecture Design

Mt. Pisgah Studio

A time when I did not know how bad my work was to apologize for it. A south Willamette Valley butte logged in the past and dominated by a major transmission line easement, but otherwise left relatively undeveloped and covered with native vegetation.

Thoughts on how qualities of terrain and vegetation affect personal and group experience of the landscape, such as the effects that exposure, enclosure, containment, concealment have on views, sounds, smells, and comfort. Difficult concepts to capture in drawings.
