Roto/LZA is one of the foremost leaders in the field of exhibit planning and design for zoo interpretive exhibits. Whether minimal and understated or highly themed, we create interpretive elements that enlighten visitors with engaging experiences and educational storytelling. Using the appropriate combination of interpretive elements including: bilingual interpretive graphics; mechanical interactive exhibits; tactile features; interactive media; and play structures, our goal is to provide visitors with a clear, fun way to learn about the animals, the ecosystems they come from, and how people are working to protect these species. By balancing these elements, we have created zoo projects that are highly regarded by visitors and industry professionals alike.
