Zoological Design & Architecture

WDM is passionate about creating sustainable zoological projects that accomplish the goals of conservation, creating naturalistic animal habitats, and engaging the public through education and entertainment.

Why We Specialize In Zoological Design & Architecture

For almost 20 years, WDM has designed exhibits for some of the country’s most prestigious zoos. WDM doesn’t approach zoo design as a “Theme Park.” We want to inspire the public with an immersion experience. We view zoo animals as ambassadors for their wild counterparts, and our goal is to create an authentic environment that tells their story so visitors can connect with animals. We also specialize in creating sustainable buildings on the zoo campus that use the latest in advanced energy-saving technologies. WDM is proud of our stewardship of the natural world, and will continue to find new ways for zoos to sustain, flourish and thrive.
