FROM THE AIA MARYLAND
This project was for a design of a recreational center rest stop to be used by the National Park Service. Part of the assignment was to explore and choose a National Park that had unique geological features. These features would serve as the inspiration for the design concept. The hostel will be for highlighting outdoor recreational activities within the park. There are no services (water, power and sewer) as this will be located in a remote location. This structure will have to depend on sustainable/green design principles to make it function. As it will be located in a rich and beautiful landscape, the park system is also very concerned on the impact of the built environment.
