In showing the richness and diversity of the ground-based views with a lot of ambiguous dichotomy such as here/there, longitudinal/vertical, figure/ground, thing/field, the body/field bi-polar opposition was considered to be the most basic. The landscape is believed to float over the framework composed of these bi-polar opposition systems with the body/field in its center. The body of the self is incorporated into the landscape. Especially, the concept of the ego-field derived from body/field is proved to be of practical importance.
After discussing some distinguished relevant previous works, we come to understand that the landscape can be effectively discussed in the body/field paradigm. Some practical design cases showed appropriateness of the body-involved theory and also suggest the needs of social theory for landscape.
Thus, the concept of landscape is suggested to shift from the traditional view point/object paradigm to the body/field paradigm. To conclude, a schematic summary of the concept of landscape is shown based on the body/field paradigm.
