Hampton-Rivoira Architects designed the 40-foot-high Aviary, which is features a triangular-section stainless steel bridge and a strong high-tech Invisinet.

Temaikén’s Aviary is the biggest in South America and holds around 2,500 birds that live inside and outside the big net structures. Visitors can walk through the Aviary´s path to see the birds in their own continent´s environments. Hampton-Rivoria Architects designed the 40-foot high Aviary, which is features a triangular-section stainless steel bridge and a strong high-tech Invisinet.

Once a flat pampa landscape, the biopark is now a lush habitat complete with local plants, materials and landscapes to make animals feel a little bit at home. Designed by renowned local graphic designer firm Shakespear Studio, the signage can be understood by non-readers and shows each animal´s conservation status. The concrete path along the biopark was tastefully decorated with plant imprints and footprints (which are made with a stamp and not by walking ducks through concrete!)
