Elephant House, Zurich Zoo, Markus Schietsch Architects GmbH & Lorenz Eugster, Zurich 2014

A raft of new public-zoo projects internationally push utility and fitness for purpose to their limits, having to cater for both their animal residents and their human visitors. The days when the animal was purely an object on display are over, as small compounds have given way to new interior realms and exterior landscapes, both of which have done much to improve the quality of life of their inhabitants.

 

Perennially popular and increasingly designed with preservation and ethics in mind, these creatively progressive eco-cultural destinations are anything but white elephants.
