The History of the Buffalo Zoo Design
Gwen Howard, RA LEED AP , Foit-Alberts Associates Architecture, Engineering and Surveying, PC
We have all been to the Buffalo Zoo, but were probably busy looking at the animal. But as engineers, we understand that practical considerations for habitats and exhibits go far beyond just providing space for the animals. Most of the time there is a much, if not more, going on undergrounds or behind the scenes. Learn about the evolution of the Buffalo Zoo design and the practical applications for contemporary exhibit design. Integration of MEP disciplines in natural exhibits and the site design combine animal husbandry, landscape issues, storm water management, complex plumbing and filtration system with the fine detail of exhibit design.
