The word I find attractive is “atmosphere” which is hard to depict in drawings but I feel is the starting point of landscape design. An atmosphere encompasses the whole, lifting borders between different disciplines and territories, such as urban design, architecture, interior, and landscape, each of which is highly specialized today. I personally believe that designers in the coming years need to be “generalists” rather than “specialists” who can oversee the whole picture and design the “atmosphere” with no borders between territories.
