Land Architecture and Urban Design
“When it comes, the Landscape listens – Shadows – hold their breath – When it goes, ‘ tis like the Distance On the look of Death --- “ Emily Dickenson
“Our souls lie infirm in the bowels of the earth forged by mankind’s swift strokes, She must be tendered by our gentle hand to live in joy with her”
