Platonic Naturalism seeks to blur the line between what is landscape and what is architecture by not only utilizing a site’s immediate context as a source for building materials, but also closely examining the effect of using the natural features of the surrounding landscape in the construction process. The result renders architecture, traditionally thought of as artificial and imposed upon a site, as a harmonic natural atmosphere.
