    ‘The mythical state of man living in nature never existed. We have always significantly altered and managed our landscapes for practical and symbolic reasons. We will explore the relationship between man and cultivated land, how this shaped our world and gave rise to the possibility of architecture. We will explore the future of our relationship with nature in these islands’.
