Landscape Design and the Experience of Motion
Dumbarton Oaks Colloquium on the History of Landscape Architecture
This volume presents new scholarship on an important but largely unexplored topic in the field of Landscape Studies: the experience of motion through a garden or designed landscape. As Conan suggests in his introduction, human movement—circulation—takes place partly in response to, or in accordance with, the designer’s intentions.The essays span Europe, Asia, and the Americas, while covering the modern era as well as the ancient world. The diverse backgrounds and fields of specialization of the authors, from anthropology to art history, bring fresh perspectives and new ways of thinking about the experience of motion.
