The Ivan Rakovec Institute of Paleontology

The Institute of Paleontology is connected to the ZRC SAZU Atrium. One of its goals is to popularize science and research. Its architectural features include a greenhouse and an exterior staircase under which air conditioning units are located. The submerged basement space features a collection of fossils and the replica of a dinosaur skeleton. The greenhouse contains laboratory spaces with exhibited fossils of vertebrates in an authentic environment of Mesozoic plants or living fossils.
