Macao Giant Panda Pavilion
Nestled against a hill side in Seac Pai Van Park in Coloane in a fan-shaped layout of about 3000m2, Macao Giant Panda Pavilion is designed to take advantage of combining the terrain's natural undulations with the architectural characteristics.
The pavilion comprises two 330m2 indoor activity quarters and a 600m2 outdoor yard for the inhabitation of the giant pandas and a 900m2 indoor exhibit area. Two viewing paths of different elevations align along the front edge of the fan-layout indoor activity area, accessible to two streams of visitors. Internal facilities include a logistic centre with panda dens, bamboo-washing and storage quarters, feed preparation room, feed warehouse, control centre and veterinarian clinic, etc.
The outlook of the Macao Giant Panda Pavilion is designed to mimic nature, e.g. the yard is enclosed in a rock wall with some built-in panda habitat features. The indoor exhibit area is under a translucent film roof that offers more natural light than electric lighting. The roof of the whole pavilion is fashioned in the shape of a seashell.
The viewing area in the indoor activity quarters features two viewing paths of different elevations accessible to two streams of visitors at a time, adding to the accommodating capacity of the pavilion. The outdoor yard, however, is the result of the all-in-one design concept and most of the trees previously grew here have been retained, allowing the giant pandas to enjoy themselves in an outdoor environment when weather condition permits. Visitors will be able to watch the activities of giant pandas through the toughened glass.
Pavilion of Rare Animals
The Pavilion of Rare Animals is part of the Rare Animal Zone exhibition area has three indoor and two outdoor activity fields to provide the red pandas with sufficient activity space. The setting of the fields is designed to be similar to their natural habitat, with plenty of plants and climbing facilities such as perches for them to exercise.
