Scope and Content

File documents an unexecuted project for Westpen, an animal enclosure for the property at West Green House at Hartley Wintney, in Hampshire, England, and also the location for the project Greenbird (AP144.S2.D96). The pen can be adapted for several uses and its pivoting and sliding gates can be removed when not used for livestock, to be converted into a sculptured landscape for picnicking and leisure activities. Conceptual drawings include diagrammatic sketches which show the movement of animals through the pen for collecting, weighing, cleaning, and shearing. Sketches show pivoting rails, and preliminary plans are annotated with individual gate dimensions. Design development and working drawings illustrate the development of the pen components: 8 ft swing slide and cattle gates; 3 ft sheep gates; a sheep dip and footbath area; a sheep drafting and guillotine gate; and feed bins. Plans and details show the concrete apron and pre-formed gate sockets. Reprographic copies made from a consultant's drawings show the configuration of gates and hurdles. Some material in this file was published in Price-Works II' (London: Architectural Press, 1984), 72, 79. Material in this file was produced between 1977 and 1979.

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