Aviary, Zoo Temaikèn, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Birds from five continents, one Webnet

Visitors can move about freely in the aviary and observe the birds in their habitat. The enclosure consists of three parts and is home to bird species from all over the world. The use of Webnet has allowed the realisation of an enclosure that does not create the impression of a cage. As one looks upward to the 12 metre high steel arches, the transparent Webnet structure is nearly invisible. “A near-natural home for animals made of weatherproof stainless steel ropes that do not create the impression of a cage and fascinate with their unique design.”

While the big aviary's 7500 square metres offer space for birds from Africa, Eurasia and Oceania, the smaller aviary hosts birds from the Americas. Jakob Rope Systems was responsible for structural engineering, production, and assembly of both structures.
