Abstract—To improve the quality of life of the inhabitants of the town of Quichas and promote their sustainable development, we propose an Ecological Research Center. This center allows the restoration and revaluation of biodiversity in the study area. During the exploratory research process, data was collected through observations, interviews and surveys; the areas of direct and indirect influence were delimited, tourist attractions, infrastructure deficiencies and the environmental and ecological situation of the area were identified. As a result of the information analysis, a proposal for sustainable infrastructure was developed with the design and application of bioclimatic architecture techniques and the use of solar energy. For the proposal model, the Sketchup software was used and the results obtained showed us the potential of Quichas for the use of its landscape, biological and environmental resources in productive activities and tourism, as well as for the development of research in sustainable agriculture, considering the dynamics that characterize its systematic geography.
Index Terms—Bioclimatic architecture, biodiversity, center for ecological research, restoration, sustainable development.
