NEW PRIMORSKY ZOOLOGICAL PARK IN ST. PETERSBURG
The new Primorskiy Zoological Park in Saint Petersburg will have a unique design.
Designers will attempt to recreate the Paleolithic Pangea (back when all the continents were one big rock), the project will offer a sampling of every continent within the zoo, thus creating an archipelago that represents South East Asia, Africa, Australia, South America, North America and Eurasia. North America and Eurasia will be linked together by a representation of the Arctic Pole.
Covering 300 hectares of land, each mini-island will contain ecological samples and indigenous animals of each respective continent. The animal pavilions will be protected by bubbled steel and glass dome caps, each surrounded by lush greenery and foliage.
As far as going green, the designers have taken environmental impact into account as well. Rather than appearing like prisons for animals, this zoo challenges that stereotype in attempt to create an oasis-like environment, free from the hustle and bustle of Russian city life.
