Urban Initiatives : 耗资520万美元的“捕食者分界-狮子谷”是墨尔本动物园长远计划的重要组成部分，该计划旨在通过继续将游客与动物联系在一起，大幅增加游客的造访次数，提高现场体验。由ARK, OLA Studio, Arterial Design合作设计，掠食者区第一阶段包括狮子，非洲野狗和极度濒危的菲律宾鳄鱼。这一诠释之旅基于“加入狼群，加入战斗”的保护信息，以鼓励游客参与到行动中来，这些行动很容易实现，但也有利于与这些动物一起在野外工作的保护项目。
Urban Initiatives : The $5.2M Predators Precinct- Lion Gorge forms a key component of Melbourne’s Zoo Long Range Plan, which aims to significantly increase visitation and enhance the onsite experience by continuing to connect visitors with animals.Designed by ARK- a collaboration between Urban Initiatives, Ola Studio and Arterial Design, Stage 1 of the Predators Precinct includes Lions, African Wild Dogs and the critically endangered Philippine Crocodiles. The interpretive journey is based on the ‘join the pack, join the fight’ conservation message to inspire visitors to engage in actions that are easily achievable but also beneficial to conservation programs working in the wild with these animals.
Set on a 5000m2 site in the north east section of the zoo, the project centres around the ‘Refuge Tree’ Education Centre and ‘ waterhole’ as the location where all predators come together. The design include a multiple close up viewing opportunities, nature and water play areas, a filtration moat system, presentation area and retail facility.
With this highly successful project, our team has created a truly engaging and immersive experience which increases visitor’s understanding of the interrelationship of habitat, predators and cohabitation challenges with communities. The exhibit also provides significant animal welfare and enrichment opportunities and high quality visitor facilities to create an enduring and memorable experience imbued with conservation messages. Our design for Lion Gorge has established a benchmark visitor experience that is integrated, seamless and offers heightened intensity, excitement and intrigue.
