Scope and Content

File documents an unexecuted project for an aviary and laboratory for the Royal Veterinary College, Camden, London, England. The design had to be easily dismantled, transported, and re-erected, since it was possible that there would be a "Stage 2" where the aviary would be moved from its original urban site to a more open rural site. Conceptual sketches illustrate preliminary ideas for the general structure and for. Some sketches are colored with metallic ink to outline structural components. Schematic design drawings illustrate two alternate plans, probably for urban and rural sites. A schematic flow diagram shows the use of research equipment within specified laboratory zones/research modules. Design development drawings show the aviary structure for both the urban and rural site. Isometrics, axonometrics, and perspectives show spatial division and accommodation within the aviary. Duplicate reprographic copies are made from the original drawings; some are annotated with notes. Material in this file was produced between 1978 and 1989, but predominantly between 1981 and 1985.

File contains conceptual drawings, design development drawings, reference drawings, other drawings, a model, photographic materials, and textual records.
