I believe Landscape Architecture is the mediation between the atmosphere that flows forth from the interpretation of our human bodily perception and the processes that steer and influence the landscape. The key to successful design projects lies in the combination of these two concepts. On the one hand implementations need to be judged on their impact on the perception of the visitor. On the other hand, the impact of these implementations on the processes of the site need to be considered. If an implementation has a desired effect on the atmosphere, but is detrimental to the formation of the landscape, it should be reconsidered and altered. If an implementation develops the site in a desirable manner, but has a negative effect on the atmosphere, it should be reconsidered and altered in the same manner.
