The Mountain and The Butterfly

ARH 608 Design Studio: The Site Analytic: Territories, Boundaries, & Connections
Educational – the Butterfly Sanctuary transformed from the Randall Musem


The Randall Museum has acquired a vast butterfly collection and related endowment and will establish itself as:
_ The premiere facility for the research, study, display, and the experience of butterflies and their habitat.
_ A sanctuary that celebrates the fragility and beauty of a planet in peril.
_ An extensive garden that attracts and nurtures butterflies, bees and hummingbirds.
In this project students were asked to envision a unique destination whose presence in the Bay Area will not only attract local residents, but may well become, like Alcatraz, Fisherman’s Wharf and the venues of Golden Gate Park, a popular tourist attraction ; “The Butterfly Sanctuary”.
