Vertical Zoo

From: Veg.itecture
Subject: One more from the Zoo


Another proposal that I really liked from the Vertical Zoo competition was recently shown on Arch Daily - 'Hollow Tower' by the French firm Oglo.

From the architect's description: "In opposite of the strong external shape, the inside space is designed by the digging of the rocky mass. This void is moved in levitation above the ground of the ecological reserve, like a vertical receptacle of life, of the fauna and the flora, like a reserve in the reserve. The tower's cavities receive the different animals species of the zoo, matched in independents ecosystems around the central void."
