Roads and Landscape – A Growing and Captivating Concern
Humans have been moving our bodies forward in thousands of years. All this time, the transport infrastructure has been an interplay between man and landscape. Paths were created according to the conditions and built-in restrictions of the landscape. The intersection of such paths stimulated trade and eventually these trade nodes formed our first cities. As part of the transport system’s infrastructure, roads are today one of society’s most important priorities. An ever-present element in our everyday landscapes. The result of good planning, a careful design and a maintenance phase that understands and relates to the original design idea and the landscape’s constant changes.
