dc.description.abstractRESEARCH QUESTION: How can the fabric of architecture enable us to be touchlessly in-touch with wilderness heritage at the Poor Knights Islands? This research project, Touchless Touch, explores the delicate relationship that exists between society and wilderness heritage. Wilderness heritage is becoming more and more endangered. Expanding populations and technology place greater pressure on wilderness areas and precious ecological environments. Society faces a dilemma due to the value of such precious space. As both protector and destroyer, how does humanity engage with this space? Architecture presents a possible solution to this problem. The fabric of architecture has the power to establish a mutually beneficial relationship between civilisation and wilderness.en_NZ
