The Portico Group (Seattle, Wash.), the lead architect on the Toledo (Ohio) Zoo Elephant Exhibit Renovation Project, contracted with the JDI Group of Holland, Ohio, to engineer the structural elements for an elephant shade structure. The man-made tree not only had to withstand wind forces and snow loading, but also the impact of a full-grown bull elephant ramming the trunk.

The Great Rock in Budapest, Hungary by PLANT – Atelier Peter Kis

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Article source: PLANT – Atelier Peter Kis

The Great Rock was created during the major reconstruction of the Zoo between 1909 and 1912, based on the specialist instructions of the Zoo Construction Committee in the capital. The zoological tasks were supervised by the director of the zoo at the time, Dr Adolf Lendl, and the construction technology aspects by Dr Kornél Neuschloss. The primary purpose of the artificial rock was to help the Zoo, that already operated on a overly tight area, appear larger and provide greater space. Thus instead of the completely flat area, with the vertical elevation, a divided and at the same time larger surface would be created with the latest and most spectacular animal runs of the time.

Woodland Park Zoo West Entry in Seattle, Washington by Weinstein A|U LLC Architects (designed using Vectorworks)

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

Article source: Weinstein A|U LLC

The new Woodland Park Zoo West Entrance replaces the old north and west entrances providing amenities and services in an arrangement that allows large numbers of guests to enter the zoo quickly, while maintaining a scale intimate enough to be enjoyed by small groups or individuals.  The zoo entrance is meant to be experienced as a node along a larger path around Woodland Park. With a variety of opportunities for seating or gathering, the plaza is a civic space enjoyed by zoo patrons and the public at large.

Eight Thousand Two Hundred Fifteen in Miami, Florida by Studio BONNER & Stayner Architects

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

Article source: Studio BONNER & Stayner Architects

Eight Thousand Two Hundred Fifteen
is a proposal for an entrance plaza and children’s play area for Zoo Miami and Miami-Dade Art in Public Places. Emerging from the uncontrollability of hydrology and urbanism, the 80,000 ft2 paving system is comprised of thousands of pre-cast and cast-in-place concrete surfaces that mutate from horizontal to vertical at key points, both adaptive and constantly changing. Approximately two hundred of these pavers delaminate and peel off the ground.

We propose that the whole Buenos Aires’s new zoo experience will be inspired by the aim of modern Safaris, where visitors can drive their own vehicles to observe and photograph wildlife animals free, rather than viewing them in cages or small enclosures.

Zoological Garden in Dochodo, South Korea by JDS Architects

Friday, May 27th, 2011

Article source: JDS Architects

The island is located in the South West corner of Korea, province of Mokpo, the most underdeveloped region of the country. Our island is the missing corner of an isocele triangle in between Seoul, first city and business hub and Busan, second city and industrial pole. Being on the west coast of Korea, Dochodo’s potential to attract south eastern Asian tourism is obvious.

Primorskiy’s new Zoological Park in Saint-Petersburg , Russia by Beckmann N’Thépé

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

Founded in 1865 Saint-Petersburg zoo is the oldest zoological park of Russia. As most of other parks across Russia, it suffers today from a cruel lack of space, being located in the heart of the historical town center. The city has hence decided to create a new zoo, which will range over 300 hectares, on the town’s outskirts, escaping this way the high population density of the urban area. The project preserves a large strech of land, and implements an environmentally beneficial approach.
