Abstract

The project that I am proposing to accomplish would be to design a Panda Exhibit located at the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, NE. The project would really begin this summer of 2007. John Armknecht from Stanley How Architects in Omaha has been contacted for consultation and mentoring purposes since their fi rm handles the Zoo's designs. Previously he has also helped another student with his thesis design for the expansion of the Gorilla Complex, and he said he would be glad to help out again. Work has preliminarily begun on the panda design by their fi rm; however, only the site location has been decided. Over the summer I would meet with him and/or zoo representatives and be able to get specific input on the site location as well as goals for the overall display. Bill Borner will help by mentoring my project because of his previous involvement with the similar mentioned project where he worked with the zoo and ommunicated with John Armknecht.
