@Bristol unveils wild attractions

The topping out ceremony took place last Friday for Wildscreen@Bristol, the wildlife attraction that will form part of @Bristol, a £97m Landmark Millennium project.

Exhibition design and graphics for Wildscreen@Bristol (pictured) are by John Csàky Associates.

The attractions will include a botanical house, giant model mushrooms in the fungi area, spiderwebs constructed from drawn glass, an interactive frog chorus and a dinosaur nest.

The architect for Wildscreen is Michael Hopkins & Partners.

Learning and leisure destination @Bristol aims to bring science, nature and art together in innovative new ways on a 4ha harbourside site. Explore@Bristol, an 8125m2 interactive science centre, was designed by Chris Wilkinson Architects.

Design groups working on this project include Cartlidge Levene, working alongside the in-house team.

Open Spaces@Bristol features public art, fountains, light features, sculptures, tree-lined seating areas, shops and restaurants. Architecture is by Concept Planning Group.

Branding for the @Bristol project, due to open in the spring of 2000, is by Identica.
