Arup to design Turkish butterfly garden

3 Dec 12 Arup in Turkey has been awarded the local architectural and engineering services contract for the Tropical Butterfly Garden in Konya.

The project will be Turkey’s first butterfly museum where butterflies and insects will be observed in their own habitat. The museum will have a showroom where the lifetime of butterflies and insects will be presented. Documentaries about insects and butterflies will be shown in the mini cinema.

Arup is responsible for architecture, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, structural engineering, infrastructure design and façade engineering.

The butterfly garden and insect museum is part of a wider development plan that includes a park with playgrounds, sports areas, shops and cafes. There will also be an amphitheatre with 1,000 seats.

Arup’s technical team will provide an environment where the temperature can be kept consistent and where the humidity is high during all seasons.
