dc.description.abstractArchitecture demands a certain responsibility to the changing environments of today’s world and the sustainable practices that can support it. Overtime, this responsibility has only become more important as habitat loss, pollution, over-exploitation, and species introduction are increasingly affecting the diversity of landscapes and resources of today’s world. How can a research facility on an off shore island in New Zealand educate and promote change for ecological significance and biodiversity? How can architects and designers 'design for diversity' while taking into account cultural context and the unique environments that surround them? This research project aims to explore the architecture and planning of an educational facility that is deeply rooted in the cultural ties of the land, and the island solutions that support it. In the end, the project develops a design proposal that compasses indigenous knowledge, values, and understandings in conjunction with Western science practices and research.
