Use of Space-Sensitivity to the Land

Richard likes the spaces that charles has created. They're a wonderful mix of the formal, of the informal, of what Mother Nature does and what we do as humans. Charles believes that there's always an interesting juxtaposition between man's line and what nature gives us and we must remember we're part of nature as well. The important thing is to try and aim for harmonious continuity and make our mark in a gentle and sensitive way. Charles has always felt that a landscape architect should act as an interpreter; the land has something to tell us. We have our own stories and the union of those things is what is most important and that is done with an openness of spirit and a sensitivity to the land and to the people around us. That's the most important thing to look at throughout our lives, as designers of landscapes and buildings.
