There are few things more powerful than a close encounter with the beauty and wonder of nature. But as our world changes, the setting for these precious moments is changing as well. Technology can help tell this story, but without the right touch, it can also act as a barrier.
Zoos & Aquariums
Our skilled team creates specialized, themed environments for guests and inhabitants alike, sculpting impactful, story-driven experiences that leave lasting impressions. We understand how to use advancements in the industry to make your zoo or aquarium a haven for unparalleled inspiration, learning, and fun!
At Falcon’s another one of our core competencies includes working in various formats of venues from theme parks to resort environments and beyond. Our flexibility in the design of Zoos & Aquariums has ranged from working with clients like Wild Animal Park, San Diego Zoo, and Florida Aquarium.
We utilize cutting-edge techniques such as informed project management, and a whole host of specialists to bring your project to life – while remembering that these tools must be invisible, making way for an experience that is elegantly simple and unbelievably pure. When conceptual designs come to fruition we have introduced various innovative technologies to continue engaging audiences.
We work with all the various departments within the zoo and aquariums to understand the animal habitats and their needs during the design effort to help enhance the experience. One of our goals is to be sure we understand the needs of the exhibited animals before beginning our design efforts. With our experience in interactive experiences and exhibits, our introduction of projects such as Virtual Aquarium and Spheron Theater have helped sculpt storylines for various clients.
In recognizing new trends such as edutainment in our industry our role is further researching and developing new techniques for telling stories and educating audiences. Our focus on finding creative new methods for storytelling through media, virtual reality or augmented reality. These new techniques are also advantageous for our clients because they range in budgets to accommodate for varying budgets.
