AWARD WINNING OPEN-AIR OASIS

Zoolutions

The bonobos at Wilhelma Zoo nowadays live their lives almost like in the wild: X-TEND netting spans an area around 3,000 square metres in size, including a stream and various wooden frames. The mesh geometry is adapted to the Stuttgart park’s hillside topography. In July 2014, the enclosure won the Hugo Häring Award from the Federation of German Architects in Baden-Württemberg.
