      Not at all ;) This 'raised up' building in its apperiance follows the original plans from 1909, and the construction is based on contemporary photographs and archival materials.

      I really like the unique buildings in this zoo. So many concepts. I doubt I'll ever make it there, but it's now on my wishlist.
