Thilina Liyanage, an architect and “biomimicry enthusiast,” has designed a stunning park observation deck design that pushes the boundaries of what is possible. Drawing inspiration from the undeniable beauty of mountain goats, the Safari Park Observation Deck is visualized as a remarkable and captivating concept. The stunning structure, shaped like a massive sheep's head emerging from a mountain slope—in a “Mount Rushmore-like” manner, evokes a sense of whimsy and wonderment. Liyanage's architectural style, characterized by “larger-than-life animal sculptures made from wood, bamboo, metal, and concrete,” is both grandiose and rooted in nature. The use of bamboo for certain details adds an organic touch, while visual elements like the curving horns exude a strong elegance.
The Safari Park Observation Deck design will definitely serve as a tourist attraction in the region if realized.
