Landscapes - a future replacement for Architecture

The architecture line is pretty impressive, but I'm consistently impressed with a variety of landscapes done in community MOC's.  How can we get that kind of detail in an officially released set from TLG.  A new line, Landscapes.

Iconic mountains, arches, canyons, mesas, buttes, valleys, etc!

So search sucks, has there ever been a concept like this tossed around in the past?

    Choose a mountain (the Matterhorn gets my vote) and submit it to ideas.  If it takes off it'll start a theme (like minecraft and ghostbusters).
    Although, to be honest, I can't see how this works in quite the same way, how many people know what a butte or a mesa is, let alone recognise one from a small scale model?

    might make an interesting Ideas project. Would probably really struggle to get votes though.

    have some examples to link to of what you are referring to?

    modular landscape sets for displays to properly display all those lego creature/villains/whatever...
    ponds, brickbuilt trees, rock formations, 32x32 baseplate, winter summer autumn spring edition, 
    themewise there could be:
    desert, swamp, alpine, coastal, wood, steppe, underwater, grasslands ...

    If anything, it would end up being a MOC parts pack. Might sell out quick though.

    The Matterhorn was my first thought as well.

    Other examples, mostly from USA southwest:
    Devil's Tower, Wyoming
    Double Arches from Arches National Parks or Messa Arch from Canyonlands Utah
    Monument Valley, Arizona 
    El Capitan and Half-Dome in Yosemite Park
    Haystack Rock on Canon Beach, Oregon

    Tianzi Mountains, China

    It's mostly geological formations that interest me.

    Gee, I always wanted a LEGO 'Tundra Landscape' set. :/

    I don't see a Lego rendition of the Matterhorn being very interesting but nature inspired vignettes always catch my eye like these examples:

    They do this already, although it is a very small scale:

    A planet where all the residents are hot dog people.
    An ice cream planet. 
    A planet where all the trees grow sausages and Jar Jars.
