Approaches to site design, conservation & building design, site management/ interpretation & visitor experience
Respect the authenticity of site and place.
Induce minimal effect on site while achieving required tourism service satisfaction (Presence of the visitor center is manipulated through the notion of “thickened ground” and a dynamic relationship and integration between surface, building, and ground).
Strong integration between indoor and outdoor areas (Regarding the Visitor Center). The Visitor Center is a point of attraction on the main trails within the site.
Convey the significance of the site to the general public through interpretation of the site values and messages.
Facilitation of interpretation is achieved through the design of trails, interpretation signs, and guided tours.
