过程中的景观 Landscape in Process
Landscape architecture is rich in natural and human elements, such as rivers, plants, animal migrations, changes in human behaviors and traces of life - these elements are always in flux, and therefore landscape architecture is always in some kind of "process".
According to the observation, research and operation cycle of a landscape object, it can be classified into the process of cognition, practice and evidence-based approach. These three stages correspond to 'cognitive process', 'practical process' and 'evidence-based process' respectively. Being aware of the 'process' attributes of landscape architecture, fully understanding and utilizing these processes, will contribute to a more efficient use of landscape resources and the improvement of the human environment, and provide a guarantee for the optimization of the global landscape pattern and the creation of a better habitat for human beings.
