A wildlife exhibit that can support King Penguins in a simulated native environment whilst inviting patrons to become part of the scenery.
This commission represented a number of significant challenges. The project team had to create an enclosure that could simulate the native Antarctic environment to ensure the ongoing comfort for the King Penguins whilst allowing interaction with the public.
Our aim was for the audience to feel as though they were immersed in the environment and become part of the scenery. The experience spans above and below the water, giving patrons an opportunity to explore the environment as though they were right there in the Antarctic. The layout throughout enhances the feeling of exploration by taking them on a journey of discovery as they make their way up to the viewing platform.
