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

Regularly planned big events can generate great amounts of energy, enthusiasm and revenue for CNC. The largest events can draw 1000 visitors in four hours, causing some problems on the site, e.g. car traffic/congestion and fee taking.


The lesson here is not to build anything permanent that is specifically designed for a few annual large events. Rather, look at how new elements being constructed for immediate program needs can double to assist big event needs.
