Myth, Ideology And Hegemony: The Political Syntax Of American Environmental Design Tradition
Sargın, Güven Arif (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 1997)

They also represent the changing perceptions of natural and cultural landscapes in design practice over time and place. In this changing perception...
