Client: Base Structures (2010)

Aviary. Stainless steel net on galvanised cables.


As part of an on-going refurbishment programme at the Le PAL zoo, the old elephant enclosure has been turned into an aviary for South American birds. Tony Hogg Design was responsible for designing the masts and perimeter posts as well as their foundations on a site of great topographical complexity. Galvanized cables of various diameters were used throughout to form the basic structure of the aviary and stabilize the masts. Multiple cable tie-backs, utilizing heavy duty ground anchors, support the perimeter posts. Another major part of the work package included form-finding and patterning of the stainless steel woven nets which were manufactured off site.
