Analogies between nature and architecture (Texas)
Diz, Joaquin Ignacio
Master of Architecture thesis
Nature is a wealthy source for referral during the creative process of architecture. It has thus been employed throughout history in different ways by different architects, each time providing new foundations for further interpretations. In this project, both, the site (Big Bend National Park, Texas) and the program (World Center for Birds of Prey), inform the architecture. The first through its geology, topography, history, and spirit, the second through the historical relationship between humans and falcons as well as the difference in their inherent freedom of spatial displacement. This information is abstracted into architectural forms based on essences and not on literal interpretations.
