Architecture Contribution to the Tourist Landscape Experience
This research explored the relationship between the tourist, landscape and architecture. The design of the architecture answers the question: How can tourism architecture inform tourist perceptions of a landscape that has experienced a natural disaster?
This project researched, established and fused architecture into a picturesque landscape. The role of the design in Kaikoura is to bridge the gap between human and the landscape; in particular, it satisfies tourist psychology by highlighting the landscape and the 'picturesque' view that suffered due to a natural disaster. The architecture provides a positive view of the restructured fragment of that new landscape.
