Modern Frankfurt Zoo

I have often pondered that the Frankfurt Zoo's Exotarium "tower" looked an awful lot like the zoo tower pictured in the post below in 1878. I am still not sure it is the remnant's of the original or if it is a new one. Does anybody know if it is or isn't? Remarkable if it is, and well worth the trip to the Frankfurt Zoo just to gaze upon it's history. In my humble opinion, a truly remarkable architect is the one who can "redesign" old structures, to make them suitable for animal husbandry today, instead of razing them, and designing a "crystal cathedral" in their place.
