Snowdon Aviary London Zoo, Regents Park NW1 - Westminster, City of

Aviary designed by Lord Snowdon and Cedric Price in 1962-5 as part of a wider expansion of London Zoo. The Aviary is an aluminium and steel structure on concrete foundations, accessed via a cantilevered concrete bridge. Funding has been secured from the Heritage Lottery Fund for the full repair of the Aviary, and Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent were granted in September 2017. Works will include the replacement of the aluminium mesh and alterations to the concrete bridge and entrance pods. Further investigative works are underway, partly funded by Historic England.
