Categories: Events, Construction, Announcements

After being closed for five years, the renovated and re-imagined Zoo de Vincennes in Paris will open on April 12. With buildings designed by Bernard Tschumi urbanistes Architectes with Véronique Descharrières, the completely transformed zoo will house animals from French-speaking territories divided into five different biozones designed by Atelier Jacqueline Osty and Partners. The focus of the redesign puts greater emphasis on natural habitat, so as to provide a better platform for the zoo’s pedagogical and ecological agenda.
