The brutal and systematical architectural planning is finally coming to an end. The landscape appears now as a better media to mastermind the development of cities as it implies a precedence and a geographical context to the thought. It smooths the ideology associated to the creation of cities and the distance between the scale of study and the length of the urban phenomenons; studies completed in a few months giving directions that had to be kept for decades...
Here again, the idea of natural background plays a fundamental role. We'll prefer to the abstract geometrical and fatally not completed axis, the spontaneous lines of agriculture to guide - if we had to - the constrained development of the city.
The city that we like have been built in a spontaneous way, like landscapes and with more collective intelligence than urbanism projects.
The landscape architect approach tries to regain some of that inspiration by proposing the dynamic of a landscape as a model of urban development.
