Nature Center

Buena Vista Lagoon, CA

The Nature Center holds an exquisite collection of taxidermy, bones, eggs, insects, and fossils from the nearby Buena Vista Lagoon, yet it sits marooned on an asphalt island, lacking connection to the landscape. The project proposes incremental improvements to reposition the Center as a front door to the lagoon. The first phase is modest, removing defunct infrastructure, reorganizing existing exhibitions, and swapping paint colors. Later phases open specimen cases and reorient visitors towards the landscape.
