The Edinburgh Zoo, founded in 1909, is one of Europe’s leading centres established to inspire and excite visitors about the wonder of living animals and to introduce and promote research, conservation and education programs.

Working in partnership with the designer MET Studio, Hypsos was responsible for the production and installation of exhibits for the Budongo Trail, a fascinating chimpanzee environment that can house up to 40 chimps. A wide array of interpretive elements, including multimedia displays, murals, models and interactive exhibits were our contribution to what is now regarded as one of the highlights of this world-class institution.
