Camping is both locative practice and timeless process.—Charlie Hailey, Campsite (2008)A foundational myth of North America is our collective relationship to the expansive, often rugged, and remote national landscapes. From Thoreau’s cabin in the woods, to 19th century cottages offering urbanites respite from the city in the summer, the notion of retreat and the restorative role of immersive landscape experiences has formed part of the North American conscience.

Here Landscape Architecture is positioned within the field of built environment studies and strongly interrelated with Architecture and Urbanism. The specific focus of Landscape Architecture is on understanding the formative elements behind the urban landscape, and on the development of design concepts, methods and strategies that can intervene in and direct its spatial development through the scales.

This presentation begins with an act of vandalism: the cutting off of the foot of a bronze statue of conquistador and first Governor of New Spain, Don Juan de Oñate, in 1997. The foot was cut by a group of anonymous activists in retaliation for Oñate's own brutal and murderous treatment of Pueblo and Hopi peoples during the non-Native settlement and conquest of the Southwest.
