Cincinnati Zoo - Exhibits

May 6, 2022


Welcome to the Cincinnati Zoo exhibits page, showcasing the magnificent work of McKenna John J Architect. As a prominent figure in the heavy industry and engineering - architecture sector, our firm takes pride in designing remarkable zoo exhibits that blend seamlessly with the surrounding environment while creating a captivating experience for visitors.

Designing Exceptional Exhibits

At McKenna John J Architect, we believe that every exhibit should tell a story and provide a unique learning opportunity. Our team of highly skilled architects and engineers collaborates closely with zoologists, wildlife experts, and zoo administrators to create exhibits that not only meet the animals' needs but also engage and educate the public.

Zoo Exhibit Concepts

Our design process begins with an in-depth study of the animal's habitat, natural behaviors, and environmental requirements. By understanding these crucial aspects, we can develop concepts that emulate the natural environment as much as possible.

Creating Immersive Environments

Once the exhibit concept is finalized, our team focuses on creating immersive environments that allow visitors to observe and interact with the animals in a safe, educational, and enjoyable manner. We pay meticulous attention to details, considering elements such as terrain, vegetation, climate, and soundscape, to provide a truly authentic experience.

Sustainable Design Approach

As advocates for sustainable architecture, we integrate eco-friendly features into our zoo exhibit designs. From energy-efficient lighting to water-saving systems, we strive to minimize the ecological footprint of our projects while maintaining the highest standards of animal welfare.

Construction Excellence

Turning a vision into reality requires expertise in construction and engineering. McKenna John J Architect ensures that our zoo exhibits are not only aesthetically pleasing but also structurally sound and safe for both animals and visitors. We collaborate with experienced contractors and utilize top-of-the-line materials to achieve exceptional results.

Meticulous Planning and Execution

Our architectural team meticulously plans every aspect of the construction process, from foundation work to the installation of intricate exhibit elements. By closely overseeing each step, we guarantee that our designs are implemented accurately, resulting in outstanding exhibits that surpass expectations.

Optimizing Animal Welfare

Animal welfare is our utmost priority. We take great care in ensuring that our zoo exhibits adhere to the highest standards of comfort and well-being for the animals. We incorporate features such as spacious enclosures, appropriate temperature controls, and natural enrichment elements to enhance the quality of life for the inhabitants.

Collaboration and Success Stories

Our collaboration with the Cincinnati Zoo has resulted in numerous successful projects that have garnered recognition and awards. Some notable exhibits include:

Lion's Kingdom

A vast exhibit designed to replicate the African savannah, allowing lions to roam, play, and exhibit natural behaviors. The Lion's Kingdom offers visitors a chance to observe these majestic animals up close while promoting conservation awareness.

Penguin Paradise

An immersive exhibit that simulates the chilly Antarctic environment, complete with icy landscapes and a large pool for the penguins to swim and dive. Penguin Paradise provides visitors with an interactive experience while highlighting conservation efforts for these beloved seabirds.

Tropical Rainforest Exploration

Transporting visitors to the heart of a tropical rainforest, this exhibit showcases a diverse array of flora and fauna, including exotic birds, reptiles, and primates. The immersive environment allows visitors to appreciate the importance of rainforest conservation and its interconnected ecosystems.

Continual Innovation

McKenna John J Architect is committed to staying at the forefront of architectural innovation. We continually invest in research and development to enhance our zoo exhibits, incorporating the latest technologies and design concepts to create unforgettable experiences for visitors and facilitate education and conservation efforts.
