The Ecoplex-Reconciling Human & Nature At Bahria Town Karachi, Pakistan
Architecture involves a great influence on a person’s observation. The environment impacts the nature of the structure and change the way of thinking. The more functional space creates the better learning environment and interactive spaces the architecture would serve as a medium in between man and spaces/environment. For the architect, communication with nature remains the most essential condition.
Ecoplex project is centered on the blending of tectonics, social context and nature in order to create a piece of architecture that becomes part of nature and part of the social fabric of the area. The building responds to the social fabric of the area by providing a place for people to experience natural surroundings. The tectonics of the building helps it function as a connection with the bio diversity and climatic zones of the world.
From amusement to educational purpose, the building serves the unique form of information in a new way. The Ecoplex is made up of five biomes, each dedicate to a different climatic zone. Visitors travel through climatic zones, seeing, hearing, smelling and touching flora and fauna from the tropical, temperate, desert, Mediterranean and Polar zones.
Ecoplex is to explore and enjoy the world’s amazing diversity of natural life and human culture without causing damage to either. A vital requirement is that visitors should show respect for both the environment and the people who live in it. With a grand vision of becoming the hub for education and research on ecology, the Ecoplex will play an important role in providing an opportunity for visitors to have a hands-on experience of the various ecological environments around the world and teach us the importance of our natural environments.
Ecoplex is an innovative environmental visitor attraction at the Bahria Town, Karachi. The project uses nature as an immersive teaching tool to showcase the world’s diverse ecosystems.
