The New Artis

About This Project

Dilemmas of the zoo in the 21st century.

Artis, the Netherlands’ oldest zoo, is about to undergo its most radical renovation in its 178 years of existence.
The inspired managing director has a very clear mission – but, is this mission at the same time not a threat to himself, his employees and his animals?
And also: how can we look after our environment whilst at the same time we wish to reduce our influence on it?
