    Also interesting is that many of his “cottages” are quite obviously in flood plains.  What does that appeal to?  A sense of drama?  The possibility of disaster?  Look at the painting above, with a peaceful abode mere feet from a violent, malevolent sea.  You have a place of refuge adjacent to movement, to a force of nature.

    Tension found in the juxtaposition of peace and threat…thanks for sharing that observation, BP.  

    Now if we turn that into a design challenge for how to bring drama and tension into design as a sustainable emotional experience in the garden and landscape…interesting mental exercise; but I don’t think it works in the actual building of it.

    By that, I mean I don’t think it works in real life. Unless it is drama as a folly.  An artificial imposition.  Comments?
