We received a brief from the office of agriculture and nature Berne, Switzerland and Dr Stephan Brenneisen ZHAW, Wädenswil, Switzerland to create a proposal for the visitor infrastructure of the renaturalisation project ‘Moossee’. The area around the idyllic lake is used for agriculture. Lapwings are breeding (mostly unsuccessfully) on the nearby shopping center. These ground-breeding birds would feel much more at ease at the banks of the lake, given that there is unrestricted access to the water. The office took this as an opportunity to develop a project in which the land is renaturalised, and to create ideal conditions for the animals. Since the lake is frequently visited by fishermen and walkers, their needs had to be fulfilled as well. The aim was to create a harmonic setting where animals are well protected and visitors have the opportunity to observe nature and relax themselves.
