London Zoo set to remodel iconic aviary

London Zoo set to remodel iconic aviary

London zoo’s 51 year old walk through aviary is set to get a new lease of life and is expected to be complete in 2019. Foster + Partners are entrusted with the £7M project that will be used to house black and white Colobus monkeys as well as other African species.

 

The project’s concept is to bring zoo visitors closer to the monkeys and will consist of two elevated lattice monkey highways made out of laminated bamboo, lined with stainless steel mesh and will be visible from Regent’s Canal and Primrose Hill.

 

Foster + Partners, well known for their design of the London Gherkin building, have said "The redevelopment of the aviary is a unique opportunity to preserve this exceptional structure and the legacy of pioneering architecture at ZSL London Zoo".

 

What an exciting project for London Zoo, site visit anyone?
