This is part of the pattern language developed by TKWA for the Cincinnati Nature Center.

Our world, being in distress on many levels, can be a lot for a person to handle. Without a place to be still, to connect with nature and family, or converse with like-minded individuals, life in greater Cincinnati will not be in balance.

Therefore:

Enhance the retreat-like characteristics of Rowe Woods. Do this through greatly increasing the contrast between the site and the typical urban/suburban environment. There is already a strong transition felt in the drive up Tealtown Road and into Rowe Woods. Carefully reinforce this larger scale effect by minimizing the impacts of cars, paving and other urban trappings.
