Santa Barbara Zoo Australian Walkabout
Site: Santa Barbara, CA
Collaborators: Santa Barbara Zoo | Blackbird Architects | Frank Schipper Construction Co.
The Australian Walkabout at the Santa Barbara Zoo offers an immersive experience inspired by the traditions of Australian Aboriginal culture. The exhibit encourages a connection with emus, kangaroos, wallabies and more through an open, natural design, featuring ALTO™ perforated panels.
The panels provide shade and ventilation for the enclosures, while the custom graphics featuring photos of the animals enhance the experience.
