Indianapolis Zoo Bicentennial Pavilion - Translucent Canopy
Indianapolis Zoo Bicentennial Pavilion - Translucent Canopy

Project ID: 43309
When the Indianapolis Zoo was given a $10 million grant, a condition for using it was that it needed to implement an initiative that benefits the community’s goal of long-term sustainability. The result? The zoo’s Bicentennial Pavilion and Promenade, which hosts a wide range of events and is protected from weather by our U-Lite canopy system. Modeled after a lush rain forest, and crafted primarily from natural materials, the space houses 11 “pods” for up to 1,000 seated attendees and is the perfect environment for the Magnificent Macaws presentation it currently hosts. The canopies allow for 100% collection of rainwater, which percolates into an aquifer as opposed to being discharged to city sewers, achieving the sustainability goals and requirements for the project.
