Firm and Role
AFH Design developed the master plan of the Cali Zoo, a 25 acre park located in Cali, Colombia. The plan focused on adding and improving experiences for the visitors, services for the public and new opportunities to increase revenue for the Zoo. New attractions and revenue producing venues were created. The plan also proposed a center for special events and spacious plazas for activities.
An innovative reorganization of the overall plan of the zoo features the thematic division of zones that provide unique educational settings that target specific messages. These zones include, “Habitat Loss and Trafficking,” “Biodiversity of Colombia”, “Strategies for Survival,” “Unique Adaptations,” and “Conservation – Global and Local.” Each zone includes interactive interpretation features that interlace with the animal exhibits to encourage children to engage in entertaining and playful activities while receiving a memorable educational message.
