In this article, Brockway describes the broad range of cultural and designed landscapes across Rhode Island, which form layers of man-made landscape history over the state's richly diverse topography. From the grand estates of Aquidneck Island to the small 'pocket parks' of urban Providence, the variety and complexity of these designed landscapes and their interplay with the natural or cultural landscapes which formed their base is apparent through this piece.
