SINGAPORE ZOO MANTA RAY EXHIBIT CONCEPT

A VIRTUAL MODEL CREATED FOR BIOS L.L.C. TO VISUALIZE AND TEST A CONCEPT WHEREIN ARCHITECTURAL FEATURES OF A TYICAL RESIDENCE BUILT ALONG THE BANKS OF THE MEKONG RIVER ARE USED AS THE MEANS FOR CREATING A VENUE FOR VIEWING MEMBERS OF THE RAY FAMILY IN THEIR NATURAL HABITAT. THE CONCEPT MIMICS CONDITIONS THAT OCCUR DURING THE MONSOON SEASON WHEN HOUSES CAN BE FLOODED, AND TURNS THAT FACT INSIDE OUT AND USES THE INSIDE OF THE HOUSE THAT IS DRY FOR VIEWING OUT INTO THE SIMULATED FLOOD WHERE THE LIVE RAYS ARE MANAGED LIKE ANY AQUARIUM OF THE WORLD.
