Why is there so much silence with respect to the experience of motion in books on garden and landscape design? Is it even possible to experience a garden or a landscape without moving through it? Don??t we move through a garden in response to its design? And why do design treatises pay so little attention to this? Probably because of difficulties describing any experience in words, and because the experience of motion is not only awkward to convey in plain English, but it also eludes consciousness. Yet motion is so central an aspect of landscape design, setting it apart from sculpture, painting, or literature, that one has to address motion, however uncharted the waters.
