How can a zoo contribute to a city’s welfare? An intriguing question. Fulco Treffers, committed as a guest teacher to the Kharkiv School of Architecture, worked with students on a vision for the zoo in Cherkasy, Ukraine. His knowledge of the city, leisure and design were used in a workshop with students from all parts of Ukraine.
During this very intensive work period, students made a vision for the zoo in three groups, a design strategy and a number of concrete design suggestions. What is the future of Cherkasy zoo?
The students have developed three models: 1. a central position for education in the zoo, 2. the city is the zoo, and 3. experience the zoo as an animal lives.
