the landscape while maximising the visitors’ experience of the desert’s subtle beauty. To achieve this, the car and bus parks were sited well back from the building (100-300 metres), with a series of stabilised desert sand winding paths leading to the building entry and from the building exit. A landscape ‘island’ was created around the building in which visitors have a little time to pause in the desert as they approach and leave the building. Courtyards within the building are delineated with desert earth walls that protect indigenous vegetation. The bus, car park and paths were carefully sited to avoid existing trees and large shrubs. Growth of preserved vegetation and regeneration has been so prolific that very little revegetation

The practice prizes highly the social and civic responsibility inherent in landscape architecture and urban design. Not content to accept traditional design approaches, we attempt to push the parameters of existing technologies and project systems to deliver the design that exceeds current environmental objectives.
