Eismeer - Hagenbeck Zoo, Hamburg, Germany is a major development at this world-renowned zoo. With a footprint of 7000m2, the project features large, naturalistic environments representing rocky coastal bays of the Arctic, Antarctic and sub-polar islands. The ‘ice Sea’ habitats are home to polar bears, walruses, seals, several penguin and sea-bird species. A 900m-long visitor route winds through several levels above and below water level, through atmospheric sea-caves, beneath towering cliffs and glacial ice, into a refrigerated penguin environment and several interpretive exhibits on polar subjects. In conjunction with GB Hagenbeck, I provided conceptual planning, visualisation, model-making and on-site art-direction services to the project.
