Example text

A squirrel could not exist without the plants it eats; these would not grow except for certain minerals, water and air, etc. The ecological point of view entails the concept of an ecological superorganism, a concept proposed by Frederic Clements as early as 1916. It is the idea that different ecosystems are in fact organisms in themselves, with particular emergent properties that their constituent parts, animals and plants, do not have. The application of similar considerations to architecture and urbanism, as well as landscape design, opens up new avenues of thought.

Of course, it happens very seldom that a person could be aware of all the consequences of her actions; otherwise we would have been spared many environmental problems. If we insist that landscape architecture is only concerned with ‘conscious’ shaping, it seems that we are interested in the intentions of landscape architects more than the effects their actions may have on the environment. This reading would place landscape architecture squarely in the vicinity of the arts, understood in particular ways that put the author’s concept before the audience’s experience or the materiality of the object.

As in ‘township’, for example. 9 If we still want to follow the etymological trail a few steps further, we will see that the verb and the noun ‘shape’ go back to the Proto-Indoeuropean base *(s)kep- ‘to cut, to scrape, to hack’ (whence also the word ‘shave’). 10 From this point of view, then, landscape is no less a cultural creation than a township. And one should add that ‘land’ did not originally denote a natural condition either. The modern word ‘land’ comes from Old English land, lond, signifying ‘a definite portion of the ground, the home region of a person or a people, territory marked by political boundaries’, from Protogermanic *landom and ultimately from the Indoeuropean root *lendh‘land, heath’.
