Renovation of the existing 33,000 square foot National Aviary facility, including 10,000-square foot theater addition that is the world's first indoor theater constructed exclusively for shows with free-flying birds. The roof deck of the theater was also made partially accessible to the public for outdoor shows. The façade of the building addition required a structural steel framework to support an elegant perforated aluminum panel system.
