At the Grand Canyon Skywalk, Grand Canyon West,
Arizona, United States
Not to be confused with the Grand Canyon National Park, Grand Canyon West which is owned and managed by the Hualapai Indian Tribe is located on its 2,000 people reservation. This sovereign nation also owns and manages Grand Canyon Skywalk, which was initially developed in conjunction with a Chinese American businessman David Jin. The Skywalk is a horseshoe-shaped cantilever bridge that presents a 4000 feet drop into the Grand Canyon.
Nearby the Skywalk is the traditional dwellings of the Hualapai, Plains, Hopi, Navajo, and Havasupai.
For more exemplar examples of other conservation, environmental and design projects, see the conservation page.

The egret and its cousin land and rest for the night. A flutter here. A rustle there.
Then, however, all is quiet one morning—they have gone somewhere else, perhaps up north.
From gathering places for birds—through the pages of this website, let author and architect Emy Louie take you to the gathering places for humans—from the lush and verdant valleys of the gathering place called Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi, to the endless canyons of eternal Arizona, to the gritty San José in Costa Rica, and the markets of cultural Mexico.
Discover the behind-the-scenes action, the tension between ancient and modern—whether it's the bygone ways of life, the erosion of beaches, and agitated wetlands. From the outer world of bridge design, reclaimed canals, and bamboo construction to the "inner world" of meditation. It is education in a multi-media format!
"Like migrating birds, come and stay awhile and, for a moment, see things like how I experience them!"
