dc.description.abstractThe growing tourism industry has transformed many of our nation's most scenic treasures into unarticulated, placeless scars on the landscape. These responses either disregard the uniqueness of place with universalized solutions or referential kitsch. A regionalist response produces a better solution; this approach takes into consideration the embedded qualities of place and considers the site's physical, natural, and cultural environments and histories. Provincetown, Massachusetts on Cape Cod offers a natural landscape and a cultural character perfectly suited for an alternative tourist development. It features a dynamic landscape plagued by pressure for new development. From Puritanism to Bohemia, Provincetown also offers a rich and complex history involving many cultures. An engaged design process, considering these forces, utilizing the methodologies of regionalism, produces a tourist resort that is sensitive to the unique history of Provincetown and its physical environs, while addressing ecological preservation and conservation demands through sustainable design solutions.en_US
