Establishing Order

Formal gardens are unmistakable, but parks -- especially parks situated amid wilderness -- may require architectural elements to announce their artifice and to frame the visitor's first impression. The ranch-house gate, the monumental arch, the visitors' center: all serve this purpose. Hypertexts, too, can use formal frames and gateways to good effect, demonstrating design and planning at the outset while also demonstrating a deliberate intent to avoid rigidly codified structure.
