This book explores interventions that are notable for their creative and sensitive design, planning, or management of the landscape. The featured projects aim to promote interaction between people and the environment by responding to a broad range of human habitats and natural ecosystems in diverse social, cultural and ecological contexts.
In their response to context these projects evolve into Land Art, which is to be understood as a fusion between sculpture, architecture, and landscape architecture. The goal is to draw out the emotions of the spectator who is confronted by these determined, composed environments. The structure of this book is inspired by the poets journey in Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy, borrowing the narrative structure and symbolic landscape imagery: the circles of Hell, the terraces of Mount Purgatory and the celestial spheres of Heaven.
