The foundation of this dissertation derives from a personal love for nature; speciﬁcally, wildlife. This coupled with a great passion for photography leads to the reasoning and idea behind this project. Using Wildlife photography as a tool for creating greater awareness of conservation and the need for humans to enhance their support of nature (or then wildlife) conservation. The client is a company that attempts doing exactly that, photography as a means of giving exposure to wildlife conservation, this makes them the ideal client; Pangolin Photo Safaris. They already use their photographic networks and powers to raise money for wildlife conservation through their non-proﬁt pangolin Africa. This dissertation aims to equip them better with their required services needed to enable their efforts of conservation. This leads to the idea of a new central hub for their operations base in Kasane, Botswana. The new architectural intervention aims to improve the workings of Pangolin Photo Safaris, to optimise and allow them to further their efforts in conservation through Wildlife photography. This dissertation starts with the gathering of information about all relative subjects as per chapter one. Chapter two leads to a more detailed analysis of said information and relating it to architecture. Chapter three involves the exploration of possibilities by means of touchstone and precedents which is then grounded by a theoretical underpinning. Chapter four is the technical investigation into structures, materiality etc. Chapter ﬁve tries to tie in the investigations and research to a design methodology to approach the design process. Chapter six is the design process combined with the ﬁnal design iteration and this is followed by a conclusion and personal reﬂection of the process of this dissertation.
