The insertion of architecture into an environment that is perceived for all intents and purposes as 'natural', to some, seems to be incongruous or worse, destructive. However, the notion of wilderness -of uncultivated ground-is rarely found in the UK. The myth of arcadia has for centuries been manipulated and maintained for agricultural, cultural, social, political and economic ends. Our landscape is ordered by numerous organisations and regulators and by their 'designations' that seek to categorise and control its use.
