ZSL London Zoo is a singular architectural complex: ‘Noah’s Ark and the Tower of Babel combined’, in the words of Ian Nairn. The Zoo has a number of outstanding and unusual listed buildings that are exhibits in their own right. Taken as a whole the buildings of London Zoo can tell us much about the history of animal display over a period spanning 170 years, as well as inform the broader concerns of architectural history, particularly the process of design and construction.
In 1828 the initial grounds and housing of The Zoological Gardens were laid out by a rather gifted architect, Decimus Burton, the Zoo’s official architect from 1826 to 1841, and the earliest existing building at the zoo is Burton’s Clock Tower, constructed on top of what was originally the llama hut.
