Thesis: Eco-Hotel and Marine Conservation Centre


Hi all,

I am a 5th year architecture student and for my thesis I wish to design an eco-hotel and a marine conservation centre.

The idea being: creating awareness and interest among locals and tourists about the marine ecosystem, specially corals and fishes around, through tourism. It will include a resort and a conservation centre where tourists can experience marine life first hand.

I am unable to find many related case studies and it would be a great help if you could suggest some such projects.

Any relevant information would be a great help too! Thank you!

cool... I like it when all the fifth years students start talking about their graduation thesis... so you said you were unable to find related case studies? invent ones... you don't have necessarily to find the exact naming "eco-hotel and a marine conservation center"  you can search... hotel designs, conservation centers , sustainable design, eco-systems, marine life, and maybe some other types of structures or infrastructures built in relation with the sea life.... all of what I know is that you're not even trying! I'm a 5th year student too :p... may I ask what school you go to?

this isn't a thesis it's a studio project; a thesis is an investigation of a question/idea

If you are looking for precedent for marine science centers look into the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology, the Charleston Marine Life Center, the Hatfield Marine Science Center, and the Newport Aquarium (they do a lot of conservation type work.) You shouldn't have any problem finding hotel precedent. I took Oceanography and Marine Biology in high school and we toured all of these places. For OIMB and HMSC I'm certain you can call and talk to a MB student about their research and conservation efforts.
