Growing Wild Children's Precinct, Melbourne Zoo
Client: Zoos Victoria, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
In collaboration with Mary Jeavons Landscape Design and Clarke Hopkins Clarke Architects
One of Arterial’s strengths is the design of interactive experiences for children that allow them to experience learning through play. Growing Wild is specifically designed for 3-8 year olds and includes fun, interactive play experiences, taking children from the familiar to the unfamiliar, encouraging dexterity, communication, problem-solving and free play. We designed with a comprehensive understanding of children's learning abilities and the developmental stages that they go through, as well as access and equity requirements.
