NOTES: This commission was the outcome of the succesful modernist work Lubetkin and Tecton had already undertaken at London and Whipsnade zoos. The entrance spans a wide front and is comprised of five ticket kiosks containing eight entrance turnstiles and two exits executed in brick. These are set beneath a roof of independently-supported curved concrete slabs.
