the designation of cultural landscape includes a possible interpretation of modification/transformation of that natural structure by human action, as a conscious and evocative consequence of its different realms – intellectual, technical, spiritual, sentimental, affective, and emotional. Centring architecture on the organisation and disposition of the space and territory, it should be kept in mind that carrying out of these architectonic objects and structures constitutes an artificial imposition that also changes, adding to the nature of the territory – natural landscape – the cultural dimension that provides the grounds for the architect’s gesture as intervening party.
