ELEPHANT SANCTUARY

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Kuala Gandah Sanctuary is located in Lanchang, Pahang. Department of Wildlife and National Parks was the setting up of an elephant translocation unit in 1974 to track down, capture and then release these elephant into larger and safer forest reserves throughout the Peninsular Malaysia. The mission of the sanctuary are to raise up the awareness which related to the conservation issues and the importance of the species while provide a habitat protection for wild elephant. This project aim to refurbish, upgrade and reconfigure the building and services of and elephant sanctuary to meet different functional requirements of people and elephants. This initiative can lead to a new understanding and empathy towards the elephant. My concept of the spaces derived a lot from the movement of the elephant trunk. Basically, the way they stretch and flex which inspired the form to see spaces stretching upward and flexi inward. For the second inspiration which derived from the process of translocation about the transition of space. The user is able to experience the different emotions throughout the spaces from one building to another building where it will spark the creativity and functionality of the user.
