The existing Desoto Park is suitable for bird habitat because of few human accesses and wildly grown vegetation which provides creates abundant food and habitats. It is a great chance to have this ecological habitat in the city where there is no wildlife experience availability. However, the current Desoto Park space has no special meaning other than it has been abandoned for a long time and filled with garbage. Therefore, even this project is to preserve the ecology of Desoto, human manipulation is needed in the initial stage to form a stronger series of habitats.

Overall, this project will show the human control towards nature but that assist natural ecological habitats. In addition, this park should give a great chance to children to learn about river system, bird, fish and insect habitats and wetlands at outdoor classrooms and several view decks.

The different bird habitats are formed based on each…

The existing Desoto Park is suitable for bird habitat because of few human accesses and wildly grown vegetation which provides creates abundant food and habitats. It is a great chance to have this ecological habitat in the city where there is no wildlife experience availability. However, the current Desoto Park space has no special meaning other than it has been abandoned for a long time and filled with garbage. Therefore, even this project is to preserve the ecology of Desoto, human manipulation is needed in the initial stage to form a stronger series of habitats.

Overall, this project will show the human control towards nature but that assist natural ecological habitats. In addition, this park should give a great chance to children to learn about river system, bird, fish and insect habitats and wetlands at outdoor classrooms and several view decks.

The different bird habitats are formed based on each species’ natural habitat characteristic, food, and food; plant materials, water accessibility and tolerance for interruption. In this project, four types of bird habitats will be designed. Generally, marsh habitats for egrets, ducks, red-winged black birds, forest for purple finch, open woodland for doves and humming birds. As the project’s purpose of ecological habitat conservation, public access is regulated to minimize human interruption into bird habitats. In order to achieve that, trails go between of the different habitats and visitors can enter into some habitats partially by bird blind that is branched out from the main corridor.

Late update

Before the studio started individual design project, all of our class did research about river systems to understand Desoto park better and expect how it will the park.

I did research about “Subsidence”

The whole process of research(visiting other department buildings and interviewing and emailing professors)   and understand more and more about geology and geography were very new to me. Sometimes I got frustrated about not getting information that I want but overall, I liked collecting information and get to know more by proactive actions.

Here are my conclusion about subsidence in Louisiana. I made diagrams from large scale, Louisiana,  to small scale, desoto park. Feel free to leave comments if you have any question.

There are some good examples(I think) for ecological preserve/conserve parks on asla; Aogu Wetland Forest Park and First San Diego River Improvement Project.

“I think micro-scale observation is a way to know a relationships in natural environment.” – Elizabeth Hwangbo

 

This episod, no, post is about….Inventory

Last Friday, I visit the site prepared to see the highest water level that I’ve seen. Going over the whole Desoto in a micro scale was fun!

Below is the inventory diagrams that I made from this observation. Yes, now I have inventories of not only the Visitor Center but also the DeSoto park.
