What we did
Architect Chris Iwerks and BIA.studio designed the Welcome Plaza which features Cambia by NFP™ thermally modified poplar walls and a Cedar pergola. The result is a beautifully earthy, elegant entrance able to easily withstand the outdoor elements. The natural color and texture of the pergola’s design provides the perfect first impression, setting a great tone for visitors entering the zoo.
