Regina Stack- Final Presentation

Fort Ancient is an ancient Native American site that attracts many different visitors. People come to learn from the museum and others come for the archeology of the site itself. Both sets of these people want to come to learn more about the Hopewell Indians that once used this site and created the mounds that the site is known for, but both sets of people have very different ways of doing so and one cannot really exist without the other. The museum and lodging are located in the southern most part of the site and are seperated from one another but are linked by the library and research space. This space can be accessed from both sides of the building to encourage visitors to the museum and archeologists to share and learn together. The intervention does not intervene with the site to preserve the way it would be viewed by the Hopewell Indians when they were building up the site themselves. The building hugs a mound using one entrance on either side of the mound and wrapping around the back side of it. The entrance paths to the museum and the lodge come together for an outside seating and gathering area, mirrorin what the building does just on the other side of the mound.
