“… In common landscape practice -and here I am referring to a perception of landscape architecture by what is published and awarded in Europe, America, and Australia- landscape architects seem mostly employed to deal with spaces where infrastructure is not. They are employed to say where infrastructure should not be, and are generally expected to create the illusion that mechanical infrastructure is not where it is.

A pastoral modernity holds sway in the public imagination, and thus landscape remains popularly defined as the absence of infrastructure, a condition which says much about the prevailing power of 18th century English aesthetics and very little of the truth about contemporary reality. Further, it seems reasonable to say that by virtue of economic rationalism and the hegemony of architecture and engineering, the infrastructural object or system in question in any deveopment is given a kind of autonomous priority over the landscape into which it is to be inserted.”

Richard Weller’ın An Art of Instrumentality: Thinking Through Landscape Urbanism adlı makalesinden
