Abstract

Considering the vernacular landscape of some of the first wave New Towns in the UK; Welwyn Garden City, Stevenage and Harlow and four housing districts, the areas have developed specific identities and cultivation practices of inhabitants from everyday use. However, there is sometimes a design paradox as landscape constantly changes though its representation remains static (Ruddick in Harris 1997, pp.107–112). To address the landscape character is a great challenge as this involves the representation of time in which landscape form constantly morphs (Jackson, 1994, pp. 3–7). Using derived representational practices which record sequences and movements; ‘motation’, remote sensing, and cinematography, the author argues that these are essential in providing the greatest range and data to urban landscape form (Halprin, 1965, Girot in Waldheim, 2006 pp.87-104)). To this extent, the choreography of landscape representation is required.
