Transcript of Religion's impacts on the cultural landscape

Religion on the
Cultural Landscape Provide a sense of place and identity;
they map our relationship with the
land over time.

There are four primary types of
cultural landscapes. Cultural Landscapes A landscape that was consciously designed or laid out by a landscape architect, master gardener, architect or horticulturist according to design principles or an amateur gardener working in a recognized style or tradition.
Designed Landscape Vernacular Landscape A landscape that evolved through use by the people whose activities or occupancy shaped that landscape. Through social or cultural attitudes of an individual, family or a community, the landscape reflects the physical and cultural character of those everyday lives. Historic Landscape A landscape significant for
its association with a historic
event, activity or person. Ethnographic Landscape A landscape containing a variety of natural and cultural resources that the associated people define as heritage resources. Religious Buildings Can dominate the landscape... ...or blend in... ...they can be compared to one another...
