Abstract
My thesis is a human intervention into the tranquil and natural environment of Pandapas Pond and the Jefferson National Forest. Although the form of the intervention embraces the landscape and natural land formations, its purpose is to take the visitor along a path that translates the experience from one of participation to that of observation of the park’s surroundings. This is both an investigation of an architectural integration with the site and a partial separation of the inhabiter from his/her natural surroundings.
