Design for Innovation


natural and industrial

The design of this project developed as an attempt to inspire visitors to learn about nature and  the relationship of man to nature through intervention with a built environment.  The approach was to design buildings that created contrast in relation to their surroundings.  The result is an interesting landscape that incorporates natural and created wetlands, important geological mounds and structures with contrasting forms that use farm and industrial materials in their most raw form.
