The African Adventure: designing for gorillas in Uganda

Designing for Gorillas
Have you ever considered what it would be like to design for gorillas in their native habitat? Recently this opportunity became a reality for me.

Previous work with the San Diego Animal Park and Hubbell and Hubbel Architects’ extensive experience designing with alternative green building materials lead to an email from Bill Toone, director of the non-profit EcoLife Foundation, a foundation whose mission is to preserve natural habitats throughout the world (www.ecolifefoundation.org). He asked if Hubbell and Hubbell would be interested in meeting with the directors of Conservation through Public Health (CTPH), an NGO based in Uganda, Africa. They were looking for an Architect with our skills and experiences to help design a Gorilla Research Station in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park (http://www.ctph.org). I did not have to think long before I answered “Yes.”
