10 Years Masoala-Hall Zoo Zurich: Opening treetop pathway
Ten years ago, VOGT built the Masoala Rain Forest Hall in the Zurich Zoo. Ever since, it has been an inherent part of zoo visits and the expression of a new philosophy in presenting animals. Instead of only looking at single animals in their cages, visitors can walk through the spacious model of a whole habitat.
Eventually, the zoo and VOGT provide the opportunity to experience the Masoala Rain Forest Hall not only on one, but on three different levels.
A footbridge connects two new towers, offering a walk through the tree tops, next to birds, flying foxes, and varies. The higher tower includes a platform of 18 meters offering a fascinating view over the canopy.
In a feature,SF 1 «Einstein» looked back to the development - and behind the scenes (video clip from 28 March 2013, in German).
