The LRPDP’s basic exhibitry concept: Landscape Immersion : 

The LRPDP’s basic exhibitry concept: Landscape Immersion Success depends on 2 factors: The completeness and correctness with which the characteristic landscape is created. The care and accuracy with which the viewpoints and views are located and composed, concealing barriers, enhancing perspectives, composing light and shadow and most importantly, visually unifying the animal space and visitor space.
