Travel Guides: Pensacola In Northwestern Florida

Pensacolacity, seat (1822) of Escambia county, extreme northwestern Florida, U.S. It lies on Pensacola Bay (an arm of the Gulf of Mexico), about 35 miles (55 km) west of Fort Walton Beach and 60 miles (100 km) southeast of MobileAlabama.

A Spanish settlement was made on the bay coast in 1559 but was abandoned two years later.

After the British gained control in 1763, Pensacola (a name derived from Pansfalaya, a local Native American tribe) became the capital of West Florida.

It became a haven for loyalists during the American Revolution but in 1781 was taken by a Spanish force from Louisiana. In 1818 Gen. Andrew Jackson captured the city during the First Seminole War.

Design: ‘Branch House’

The location of this project is in Athena, Florida, In designing this project, we got an idea from a tree branch, so that the house is connected to a vertical structure in the form of a console, like a tree branch growing from a tree trunk.

Vertical connection including stairs and elevators inside the structure, which is located vertically, which acts as a vertical core. As soon as a person enters the house, one is faced with the endless view of nature, which is in front of the entrance door of the house. In fact, one reaches the light (interior space of the house) from the dark space of vertical connection.

The interior includes a bedroom and living room next to the fireplace, a bathroom and Wc , and a small kitchen.

Views: Secret Islands Of The Everglades, Florida

The Everglades is a water world — It’s the widest and slowest river in the United States. But in the heart of this great water body exist secret islands that have outsize importance for the cultural heritage of a people and for the biodiversity of this important wetland. Thousands of these tree islands dot the Everglades.

For generations, the Miccosukee people have called these islands home. And they’ve long understood that the islands are a giver of life in this unforgiving environment. The islands are some of the only dry land around and harbor a surprising diversity of plant and animal life, including: coyotes, bobcat, bear, and even the Florida panther.

But among the scientific establishment, the islands are little understood. Researchers from the Miccosukee tribe are working to understand how animals use the islands and what role they play in the larger Everglades ecosystem. With the islands under threat from outside forces, their studies have taken on increased urgency. What they’re finding could be key to preserving the Miccosukee culture and the balance of life in this great river.
