dc.description.abstract Architecture is a reconciliation between ourselves and the land. Our attitudes toward Nature have traditionally been either deification or desecration, finding the rawest of materials to do as one will--leading form to paralysis or imposition. Nature is inherently discordant; within the chaos are patterns revealing a new type of order. Working with these patterns in the landscape uncovers circuits of relationship, creating mutual acts of amelioration between environment and building. Human action and natural process become one.
