The research project will examine the history and development of design for non-human users in areas where human activity disrupts or interferes with the natural habitats of wild animals. More concretely it will examine how the evolution of design for wildlife corridors might be considered documents of a human attitude towards nature. It will do so by taking an interdisciplinary study of fish passes or fishways in sites where habitats have been disrupted by dams and hydroelectric power plants
