Flamingo watching tower at Al Whatba Reserve

Best Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
The building of the bird watching tower stands within the natural environment, away from any architectural facilities. Only nature can become an integral part of a natural landscape, but architecture’s nature is classics. That’s why the author suggests establish a classical peripter with a Doric order like colonnade. The stylobate is the first watching platform, and the second one is located at the second level, working as some kind of a volumetric friso.
