As landscape architects, we often help the design team to define a project’s rightful place in the larger context. We strive to develop and communicate the identity of “place” throughout any newly built or redeveloped environment. Whether the context be urban, “sub-urban”, rural, or something entirely different, the factors influencing context are myriad. Local culture and history are intertwined with the natural environment and influenced by the opportunities and constraints it presents. In the best cases, the built environment is a thoughtful response to these influences, satisfying a deep need to connect with “place”. Not only is this approach more emotionally satisfying, it is also more sustainable and enduring because the result is often the best “fit” for any given situation.
