Hyena enclosure

Bc. Juraj Vronka


The enclosure for the hyena was designed to meet three conditions that I identified as important at the beginning of the process. The first was working with height to keep the hyena above the level of the visitors. The second is to divide the views from the visitor route using shrubs and create more intimate places to observe the hyena. The last condition was an effort to shape the paddock so that the view of it looks like a view of the landscape in which the hyena is.. The building is intended only as an extension of the path whose curve it directly copies. At the level of the visitor, it provides a view not only of the paddock, but also of the indoor exhibition through small windows. The basement then serves as an operating space for zoologists. The building is made of rammed earth.
