Woven Pods at the Melbourne Zoo Offer an Immersive Experience

 - May 12, 2016
Designed by OLA architecture studio and other architects, these woven pods are part of a new tree house exhibition that is meant to create a more immersive zoo experience.

The exhibit allows zoo-goers to interact with the lemurs they are there to see and can be entered through a woven tunnel. Unlike the normal glass and metal cages that are seen at most zoos, these pods give the exhibit a rain forest look that provides a more authentic zoo experience.

Most importantly, the wooden woven pods are made up of recycled wood and are therefore sustainable. The minimal environmental impact that this tree house exhibition may also engage public interest in the subject of environmentally-friendly design, which can further produce and encourage sustainable practices.
