Consider what it means to situate an architectural project? 

The architectural site (WIU: Wildlife Urban Interface) as conventionally presented is a reduced stand-in for the actual nature of a place with the purpose of making it manageable for the architect as well as various jurisdictional entities and stakeholders. This project is intended to engage the complexity, not by assuming that is it a problem to be solved, but rather that is provides both challenges and opportunities that can promote topological and programmatic innovation.
