The Modernist style Penguin Pool at London Zoo, Regent's Park, London UK [Berthold Lubetkin / Tecton, 1934] was constructed with dual spiral concrete ramps, and quickly became a favourite for the zoo's visitors. However, when restoration work was needed in 2004, the penguins were moved out temporarily to a nearby duck pond, which they much preferred, so they refused to move back to their famous architectural masterpiece!

The wooden observation tower at Helsinki Zoo in Finland was the winning design in a competition held for architectural students of Helsinki University of Technology. Situated on a small island just outside the city, and built on one of its highest hills, it provides visitors to the zoo with panoramic views over the sea and surrounding area.
