Location: Baltimore, Maryland
Completion Year: 2018
We are so excited to be part of the new African Journey exhibit at Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. Whole Trees teamed with CRL Designs to create structures for the Lions and Giraffes and Elephants, OH MY!
The Lion Exhibit will include whole timbers incorporated with steel mesh and glass allowing visitors and intimate interaction with the lions. No touching though!
The Elephant shades reach 25’ into the air and utilize timber wrapped steel columns and a round timber roof. This provides the elephants with a break from the sun while allowing the public to still view them in their habitat.
The giraffe shade is built with branching timbers and a stretched fabric roof. A little escape and rest stop for the giraffes as they traverse the Savannah and interact with the elephants, as they would in the wild.
