MONTEVERDE ENVIRONMENTAL CENTER Sustainable Futures 2003 Overview Over the last few years the Monteverde Zone has been evaluating and assessing their future growth. Various recent studies have concluded that the regi on has both the need and opportunity to develop a cent er which will serve as a focal point for the community and Zone at large. As tourism increases and population grows, the center could help map and forecast the area’s development. The center would capture the character, history and vision of the community and region’s unique ecological and biological makeup. Mission Statement The goal of the design team was to create a multius e facility that would serve the needs of local resi dents as well as visitors. Both designs would incorporate s everal key elements including: A gateway to the region An education component that would highlight the unique cultural, historical, economic, geographical, and environmental character of the region Disseminate information on local businesses Project a vision of a sustainable Monteverde Include a regional parking facility Summary of Design Proposals Scheme A Scheme A focuses on the conservation and environmen tal dimension of the region, and the site itself. It was designed with the intention of preserving (and crea ting) the greatest amount of critical habitat for t he Three Wattled Bellbird. This effort serves economic and cultural interests, as well as environmental, given the Bellbird is a major tourist attraction. Scheme B The focus of Scheme B rests in two key features: (1) Educating, as well as demonstrating and applying su stainable technologies on the site itself (2) Creating center that would serve an attractive, wel l-rounded gateway to the region Other features – such as the regional parking facil ity – were also incorporated. However, the above t wo features took top priority when designing buildings and additional site components.
