The project was conceived by the University of Florida team and created for the 2020 Walt Disney Imagineering’s Imaginations Design Competition. This project is the sole property of Walt Disney Imagineering and all rights to use these ideas are exclusive to Walt Disney Imagineering. The competition is a way for students and recent graduates to showcase their talents and for Walt Disney Imagineering to identify new talent. In our project, we designed Itori, a place where students and residents can gather to connect with nature and one another. Nestled on the side of the campus lake, the installation invites guests to walk alongside local wildlife in a new, immersive environment. Filled with historic symbolism, Itori offers its guests the opportunity to interact with their surroundings and find meaning within every step of their journey.
