We chose these sources so we could compare and contrast to find what only good zoos have me what all zoos have so we can use it as a base to build off for our zoo.
The swot analysis is important because it allows us to reflect on flaws and advantages and so with the information we can improve our design and habits by collecting good ideas and architecture to at to ours.
We used a number of strategies for forming ideas and creative proposals for our zoo including Venn diagram, swot, questioning web, socratic questioning, blooms taxonomy and scamper. These are all important as with our questioning we can form ideas and the base infrastructure from an educated and informed point of view. With this we can make sure our zoo will be professional and well made.
Zoo exhibit proposal
Our zoo exhibit: were creating a large incloser replicating a small ecosystem so that guests can be taken through it in a protected pod to get that in the wild feeling.
Species: we're using rainforest based animals and splitting them up among the area so bloodshed doesn't break loose. These will mostly be non peditory anaimals but the minority of predators will be segregated.
Habitat: the enclosure will have a humidifier and contain plants from there natural habitat. Almost no man make objects will be apart of the enclosed to make it seem as natural and wild as possible.
Engineering an exhibit: The glass and steel for the pod will be thick and the walls will have a net facing outwards to avoid animals climbing out. Smooth concrete will be used on the walls so no vegetation or animals can get out. There will be a textile net over the exhibit so bird species can live in it.
Your design: the model will be made out of Lego technicals and standard Lego as it allows for flexible design and room for creativity.
Educational/entertainment: the habitat is made to entertain and educate quests about animal behaviour and also provide a fun new engaging experience.
