Humans + Habitat: Reconciling Recreation with Wildlife Preservation in Discovery Park
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis proposes to develop new ways of preserving and enhancing existing habitats in Discovery Park, while creating a loosely structured visitor experience, which provides a deeper understanding of the different habitats and leads to their improved protection. The design approach emphasizes existing park features through the addition of sensitive, site specific architectural interventions. Each intervention guides visitors to specific areas along existing circulation routes, where they are able to engage and understand the surrounding landscape and wildlife in a new way. By directing and composing a sequence of experiences which attract visitors, adjacent habitats remain protected and preserved.
