Mapping Biodiversity

For one of our projects in Saudi Arabia, the landscape approach proposed different ecosystems for the site dividing the area into different ecological zones. The research identified different native fauna and flora species that would be included in each ecological zone. The objective of this approach is to show the client the level and intensity of biodiversity  once the different zones are implemented.

The image below gives you an idea about the visual representation of the biodiversity map:

About tOD

Active since 2010, the architecture lab theOtherDada defends an alternative position towards the current practice of sustainability through exploration of the context and medium, invoking new relationships between climate, landscape, and inhabitants. Informed by our research into biomimicry, we aim to connect to the natural ecosystems of sites to understand and consequently devise new potential living habitats. theOtherDada works within a collaborative process between architects, scientists, botanists, artists, economists and craftsmen.
