dc.description.abstract This research project explores the relationship between the tourist, landscape and architecture. The design of the architecture answers the question: How can tourism architecture inform tourists’ perceptions of a landscape which has experienced natural disaster? The outcome of this research was the Kaikoura Peninsula Museum Hotel. The hotel is located on the famous and picturesque Kaikoura Peninsula walkway, in the South Island of New Zealand. The design responses to provide tourists with a more profound experience of the New Zealand landscape. In particular, Kaikoura, which has recently suffered natural disaster, an earthquake, was selected to help tourists explore the new picturesque landscape and allow them to experience the relationship between themselves and the landscape in an architectural way. The Kaikoura Peninsula Museum Hotel embodies the original contributions to knowledge made by this research. This research project researched, established and fused architecture into the picturesque landscape. The role of the architecture, is to bridge the gap between human and landscape; in particular, it satisfies tourist psychology by highlighting the landscape and the picturesque that suffered in the natural disaster. The architecture provides a positive view of the restructured fragment of the new landscape. This research project exploited framing, landform architecture and linear sequence spatial narrative concepts drawn from the existing works. The study and employment of such landscape strategies and methods in the project aided the positive perception of a landscape which has recently experienced the natural disaster. The architecture project allows tourists to appreciate the landscape both visually and mentally. en
