This project, which won an Award of Excellence in the tensile structures more than 2,790m2 (30,000 sq. ft.) category of the 2007 International Achievement Awards, covers Sydney Wildlife World, a new attraction showcasing Australia’s unique flora and fauna in the heart of Darling Harbour, Sydney, Australia. Local and international guests can experience an up-close encounter with Australia’s bizarre flora and fauna. Visitors weave through this natural attraction via air-conditioned walkways separated only by glass panels, creating an all-weather facility. The transparency of the Zoomesh allows for the animals to encounter the day-to-day climatic variations, so tourists can observe them in their natural habitats.
