A Zoo Design a Polar Bear Could Love

A French architecture firm, Beckmann-N’Thépé, has just won a competition to redesign the Helsinki Zoo. Their  design looks a bit like a glacier, which is wholly fitting, since the new zoo would host a bevy of polar bears—which were last housed at the Helsinki Zoo 30 years ago. It’s still unclear if the zoo will get built, so cross your fingers.
