  • Nobody likes it when you mention the unconscious, and nowadays, hardly anybody likes it when you mention the environment. You risk sounding boring or j udgmental or hysterical, or a mixture of all these. But there is a deeper reason. Nobody likes it when you mention the unconscious, not because you are pointing out something o bscene that should remain hidden-that is at least partly enjoyable. Nobody likes it because when you mention it, it becomes conscious. In the same way, when you mention the environment, you bring it into the foreground. In other words, it stops being the environment.

  • Out of the sunshine and shadows of sixty-eight years come these personal recollections of California--of the period when American civilization first crossed its mountain heights and entered its overland gateways. I seem to hear the tread of many feet, the lowing of many herds, and know they are the re-echoing sounds of the sturdy pioneer home-seekers. Travel-stained and weary, yet triumphant and happy, most of them reach their various destinations, and their trying experiences and valorous deeds are quietly interwoven with the general history of the State....

  • Africa is the second largest continent in the world. The world’s biggest desert, the Sahara, dominates the landscape of the north, while in the south forests and vast grasslands are home to wild animals, such as leopards, lions, and elephants. The Great Rift Valley, one of the Earth’s major geological features, runs from the Red Sea down to Mozambique.

  • We should all be prospectors of happiness. There are those who discover it in the solitudes of the mountains where freedom is breathed in the air that touches the lofty .peaks. Others find it in the depths of the forest in the songs of the birds, of the brook, of the trees. Most of us must find it in the daily walks of life where the seeking is ofttimes difficult. Nevertheless, there it is in the manufactured glory of the city, in the voices of children, and in the hearts and faces of men. Happiness becomes a habit with some;...

  • Shouldn’t it be possible to conceal a house in an Alpine slope while still exploiting the wonderful views and allowing light to enter the building? Surprised that it was permissible to construct a pair of dwellings so close to the world famous thermal baths of Vals, the client seized the opportunity to develop the site, without disturbing the bath’s expansive views. The introduction of a central patio into the steep incline creates a large façade with considerable potential for window openings.

  • But now we can argue that to make a found art object out of a landscape is to abstract from what it ecologically is. The ecological processes are not just at the pull-over sights; they are pervasively present on the landscape. They are back home on the landscapes left behind. This organic unity in a landscape is not gained by treating it as beautiful scenery, though it might be found if one discovered its ecology. A British visitor to the Rocky Mountains, despite the fact that his Denver hosts had urged him, 'You'll love the Rockies', complained that there were...
