The project evolved from a desire to re-imagine a relationship with nature in a way that allows conversation, reflective thinking, and allows one’s sense
of wonder to enter a place which is between science and myth. The design of the nature center and planetarium was developed by investigating the dualities which exist within and around the site, such as earth and air, day and night,and winter and summer. The goal was to create a building
which is fully embedded in the site around it, to create a unique environment for exploration and conversation, and a place to contemplate one’s relationship with nature.
