Abstract

Aesthetic aspects of the environment have never before concerned people to the extent they do today. Never before were so many committees preoccupied by permit procedures; never were such powerful organizations at work to protect the environment, the landscape, monuments, and a sense of local identity; never was it so difficult to erect a new building in a historical location, or on a landscape still bearing traces of earlier gardens or agriculture. Yet despite all these safeguards, procedures, and turned down construction proposals, complaints about the “uglyfication” of the environment and the destruction of the landscape are growing louder by the day.
