The impressive architecture of the “Knies Zauberhut” structure in the form of a magician’s hat in the children’s zoo in the Swiss town of Rapperswil evokes a circus tent. With its height of 26 m, unusual shape and roof covered with metal scales, it is a dominant feature of the area. The roof structure in the interior is covered with a specially shaped 3-layer NOVATOP panel and drilled NOVATOP acoustic panels – Lucy profile.
