A quiet elephant moment

The newest addition to Copenhagen Zoo is the house and area for the elephants. Designed by Norman Foster, known for among others the Reichstag in Berlin and London City Hall, it's a big step up for the grey hunks. Instead of a mere 2.025 square meters they now have got 10.730 with both a lake and a much bigger yard to play in.

As something new it's now possible to study the elephants from the adjacent park of Frederiksberg Garden, and for no charge at all.
