Landscape and Architecture Converging
Editor Sam Lubell calls it "earth-itecture":
"Building green and stretching creative boundaries are just two reasons that 'earth-itecture' is taking off.

Lubell gives several innovative examples, including architect Hagy Belzberg's Museum of the Holocaust in Pan Pacific Park in Los Angeles.
