Can a building be iconic, contextual and blend with the landscape simultaneously?

The existing site of the proposed visitor centre is an L shaped piece of land which includes three existing buildings surrounded by mature trees and the riverside pathway. Rather than build a single large building near the road, [Y/N] Studio proposed a cluster of new and refurbished buildings which provide the required facilities and encourage a greater connection with the landscape.
