Description

As the first Zoo Design Conference organized in Wroclaw in 2017 was a great success and gathered over 300 professionals involved in zoo design from all over the world, we sincerely hope that you are going to join us at the second Zoo Design Conference.

Wroclaw Zoo, with its 154 years history, is a living example of zoo design idea development. Until today you can see examples of the most important periods of developments of world zoos reflected in the animal buildings and enclosures of Wroclaw ZOO. Thus, we feel that our zoo is especially predestined as a venue for such a conference. The oldest buildings date back to 1863 and 1865. As the ZOO grew in size over the past years, more and more modern animal exhibits were built, which culminated in the construction of the Africarium-Oceanarium complex, opened in the autumn of 2014.

Animal welfare and conservation rose in importance, environmental and behavioral enrichment became a standard requirement and new challenges appeared. It is of great importance to take this into consideration while planning and building new facilities. Making a badly planned facility usable for animals requires additional funds and not always results in acceptable solutions. The architects’ work for zoos is not an easy one. Gerald Durrell of Jersey ZOO once said: “the architect in the zoo is the most dangerous animal”. We sincerely hope that through this conference the spirit of cooperation between architects, landscape architects, zoologists, managers, marketing and education staff will prevail. With an input of all these groups during the planning and construction stages, the results of work can be ground-breaking.
