NC Zoo.

Project Description

The story
The North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro with 500 acres of exhibits and 5 miles of shaded pathways is the largest Zoo in North Carolina. Insight Architects took part in the 2005 competition for a shading structure for the Seal and Sea Lion Exhibition.

The result
Insight Architects’ design was a dominant waved laminated beam structure supported by slanted steel pipes with elegantly designed connector pieces. The actual shade is provided by translucent panels that follow the waved shape of the laminated beams.

Highlights
Insight was short listed with two other architectural firms.
