Description

This project was funded by Bernard and Anne Spitzer Travel Fellowship for research projects involving travel abroad and incorporating the study of architecture, landscape architecture, or urbanism.
Ranked in 2009 as the greenest country in the world, Costa Rica has urbanized as world leader in sustainability and eco-friendly development. Ecotourism is a vital part of the country’s revenue to agriculture. We are looking to understand how a country got to the point where economic development works in balance with environmental concerns. We as designers of the built environment can learn from the ways Costa Rica has worked on ensuring the safety of the environment and the lasting of its integrated, sustainable architectural style.
