In the natural evolution of life, a multitude of human settlements and, at the same time, as many types of attitudes towards nature have emerged and developed over the centuries. The way and pace at which man intervenes in the natural environment reveals a kind of involution in the understanding of nature generated by a lack of respect for it. In the early days, man lived in complete harmony with nature, the pragmatism of everyday life gradually leading to his estrangement from the essence of nature. The process of urbanisation can bring about major changes that lead to the loss of identity in some landscapes. But change can also be creative, not just destructive. It can create new values, new resources, new dimensions, new experiences, new relationships with familiar and unfamiliar elements, an understanding of the world and our place in it. And this is where creative people from different fields come in, doing all these things using their knowledge, making observations, analyses, documenting, planning and finally designing. This is why it is important to perceive the landscape as a necessary action in the work of landscaping it or creating new ones.
