River Safari by DP ARCHITECTS

Sunday, September 8th, 2013

Article source: DP ARCHITECTS

While a modern metropolis such as Singapore offers many amenities and conveniences, there are times when people seek respite from urban life and a chance to interact with nature. River Safari is the first and only river-themed wildlife park in Asia, hosting Southeast Asia’s largest panda exhibit and the world’s largest freshwater aquarium. It is not just a collection of wildlife exhibits, butblends the animal habitats into a natural setting – immersing guests and animals in the same landscape. It allows people to observehow animals live in the wild and to establish an open, authentic connection with the animals, yet offering the same safety benefits of a more traditional enclosure.

Bird Watching Spot in Asuncion, Paraguay by Pedro Barrail + Marcelo Barrail + Lourdes Mendez (designed with SketchUp Pro)

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

Article source: Pedro Barrail

This project is a bird watching spot. Fundacion milenio and hsbc bank financed it. This place is very important, because asuncion has always been looking away from the river, and with these types of proyects they are finally looking towards the river. This area is a bay, and is very important for bird migration, because hundreds of bird species rest in this area in order to continue their journey, so not only do you see native birds, but also exotic ones. Asuncion has almost lost it’s integration to nature, however, projects like these are trying to strengthen that bond.

Article source: Ruhl Walker Architects

Anticipated completion, November 2011

The Hawai’i Wildlife Center is a non-profit conservation organization which will operate Hawai’i’s first wildlife recovery center when this building is completed in late 2011. Located in Halaula, North Kohala, on the Big Island of Hawai’i, the HWC is dedicated to the conservation and recovery of Hawai’i’s vulnerable, too often endangered native wildlife through hands-on treatment, research, training, science education, and cultural programs. The new complex will consist of three integrated and sustainably designed components: a wildlife care and response facility, an interpretive and outreach lanai and native species garden, and an open-air education pavilion.
