  • Provides both a technical and a theoretical basis on which to introduce the way to build tourism infrastructure to meet the needs of the modern tourist

This book combines the travel infrastructures of today with visitor centers, viewing platforms and holiday camps as its starting points, and shows how accessibility and intimacy of people and nature can be enhanced through the design of tourism infrastructure. There are many outstanding examples from around the world in this book. It also shows how to develop tourism while preserving certain landscape values to promote sustainable development.

The book seeks to explore how buildings emphasize the impact of ecosystems and landscape experiences on their territories and create new ways to conserve nature, with a view to providing more references to relevant designers.
