Construction and Design Manual

Natascha Meuser

This is the first ever manual to system­atically delve into the zoo as an archi­tectural typology. The author, Natascha Meuser, examines five generations of zoological structures in order to show that the architecture of zoos has always incorporated social values, fostering the coexistence of humans and animals, ever since the opening of the first scientifically run zoo. The manual presents documentation of 30 historical, pioneering zoo buildings that set new standards with regard to both function and aesthetics. Moreover, it offers an in-depth analysis of 50 international zoos that have been built over the last 20 years.
