Zoo Nocturnal Exhibit

Zoo Nocturnal Exhibit

The Edmonton Zoo Nocturnal exhibit space needed serious updating. In our revised design we flipped the location of the viewer to the viewed, putting the viewer in a position as if they had walked through a bamboo forest into a forest glade. In so doing we were able to increase the animal areas by 1.7 times. The design was innovative – the fennec foxes and Kinkajous have a warm and dark habitat and the sloths have a specially made tree with heated branches and a pool at the base. LED lights mimic the stars and the flora is designed to mimic the tropical Kapok trees of the occupants native lands.
