Interactive Typologies

  1. 1. ABSTRACT This thesis is a study of the interaction between built and natural systems. These interactions are becoming more important as the world population grows and continues to concentrate further within cities that typically supplant rather than develop within ecosystems. Through immersion in a series of typological environments and ecologies a more thorough understanding of the systems and components of these typologies can be gained by the occupant. The St Johns River system and Jacksonville, FL are the natural and built bases for the various interactive typologies. These typologies are expressed in the development of a mixed-use urban development anchored by an ecological center exhibiting and researching the St Johns River basin. The typologies create a varied level of enclosure or immersion from fully closed research biomes to completely open natural areas. The immersion of the occupant into the St Johns River and its ecologies is intended to trace the path of the river system. By following the river from its fresh headwaters to the brackish mouth and into the ocean beyond the hydrological and ecological connections that span hundreds or even thousands of miles can be condensed and experienced.
