Lincoln Park Zoo Lion House Renovation

Chicago, Illinois

The Lincoln Park Zoo’s historic Kovler Lion House is one of the original and most iconic buildings on the Zoo’s campus. However, the habitats are now considered by visitors to be overly limiting to the animals. AVA recently completed the Architect selection process, soliciting some of the best exhibit and architectural firms in the nation. The team of Goettsch Partners and PJA Architects was selected, and the Design Development process is underway.
