Concept Design for My Thesis Project

Presentation

   ings Over L.A. is a Conceptual Design for a “World Class BirdPark” in Southern California. Originally created for my Thesis Project (presentation photo above) in Landscape Architecture at UCLA, the idea stired up a lot of interest especially in the avian community so I thought I would dedicate a blog to it in hopes that one day, enough enthusiasts would help to make it a reality.

What’s a World Class BirdPark?

“Birds can be studied essentially in two ways: by observing them in the field or (by observing them) in an aviary. If the latter happens to be a large aviary, which nearly simulates the natural habitats with walk-in facilities, then it would be different from the first two. Such an aviary may be more appropriately termed a BirdPark”.

Abraham Verghese

Wings is a World Class BirdPark because it has the Greatest number of species of Birds and Exotic Plants compared to any other Aviary in the World. The Park will contain 5 different avian habitats from around the world in the “Open Zoo Concept” Visitors will enjoy a close-up view of free flying exotic birds in spacious landscaped enclosures which simulate their natural wild habitats. As well as the BirdPark, re-created Wetland Habitats will provide another small link in the chain of nurturing environments that has come to be known as “The Pacific Flyway”.. pared to any other Aviary in the World.
