This week we talked about landscape architecture. There are 3 principles of great architecture, durability, utility and aesthetic quality. Before 1850 most of the landscape was palaces, monasteries and government buildings. Then in 1850-1950 most landscape projects were cemeteries, parks, and suburbs. And from 1950-now most landscapes are malls, office buildings and suburbs. Landscape developers improve the outdoors by adding curbs and protecting the soil. Land development is like parks, retail centers and resorts.
