ArchitectMade Panda

To celebrate the arrival of two giant pandas, Copenhagen Zoo asked BIG - Bjarke Ingels Group, to create a home for them. The layout and configuration seek to create ideal mating conditions. The design mimics the yin-yang symbol that in Chinese philosophy represents opposite but balanced forces within a circle.

ArchitectMade has created two panda ornaments, one large, one small, to honour the occasion. Beautifully crafted from walnut and maple wood, each panda has moveable arms and legs, the large panda can also hold a pencil or pen.

These delightful pandas make the most wonderful ornaments.
