Saint Louis Zoo Expansion â€“ SWT Design M
For the first time in the history of the Saint Louis Zoo, the boundary of the Zoo extends outside of Forest Park. Understanding the long-term implications of this expansion, the Zoo and its consultant team took a visionary approach to the creation of a physical and operational vision for the future. Rather than develop a traditional comprehensive master plan, the consultant team led the Zoo through the process of creating a framework plan â€“ the starting point for a long-term process of change that precedes a master plan. Lasting 6 months, the planning process for the framework plan included participation from more than 500 individuals within the community, and included two public open houses to solicit input and feedback.
