The 'Eco-Cliff' zoo by Hila Davidpu, Tal Gazit, Eli Gotman and Hofi Harari is an entry in the Buenos Aires Vertical Zoo Competition. The super-sized skyscraper is meant to be a haven for migratory birds and, in 'Swiss Family Robinson' fashion, lets visitors gawk at wildlife through footpaths that wind up the tower.

The Eco-Cliff zoo will also serve as a wildlife preserve for the animals in the Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve Zoo.

Implications - With the addition of a unique ecosystem being put into place surrounding the boundaries of the buildings at the Eco-Cliff Zoo, this is really worth checking out. Those with an appreciation of green vegetation and eco-systems will love this zoo.
