Los Angeles Zoo Golden Monkey Exhibit

Los Angeles Zoo, City of Los Angeles
Los Angeles, CA

As the first phase of the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Garden’s Asian Forest Concept Plan, the Golden Monkey exhibit takes advantage of existing topography. A stand of mature trees growing on sloping terrain highlights these charismatic tree-dwellers. The design provides a comfortable treetop habitat for monkeys, while a pavilion shelter places visitors right in the canopy for optimal viewing. Incorporating the traditional Chinese practice of feng shui in the placement of the architectural elements, the viewing pavilion and the night quarters was influenced by an analysis of the flow of energy on the site.
