About

Taylor Cullity Lethlean led a collaborative team with Troppo Architects and David Lancashire Design in developing a major marine exhibit at Melbourne Zoo.

Housing Australian Fur Seals, Little Penguins, Pelicans, Pied Cormorants and a range of other marine fish and invertebrates, the exhibit provides a unique experience for visitors while conveying the Zoo’s environmental messages regarding human impact on the Southern Ocean.

The project required the resolution of complex issues of water quality, animal health, underwater viewing, storytelling and crowd control as well as requiring a seamless integration of architecture, landscape and exhibition design.
