LANDSCAPE INTEGRITY PHASE
Welcome to the Landscape Integrity phase. We start the design process by asking What are We? and inquiring about the landscape as it is perceived. We observe our environment and territory we inhabit and ourselves in it; we feel its presence and hear its voice; we notice its characteristics and systems that compose it. We inquire about its needs and find inspiration and guidance with it. This phase happens naturally in a slow movement where people come from different places and start connecting with a shared territory.
Enter into the Landscape Integrity phase by having an individual or collective moment of connection with the landscape you are part of. Whether you are in nature or in a city, natural resources and more-than-human creatures are around you. Do it in a way that suits the existing culture of the group. Having a little walk in silence through the landscape is one idea for it.
