Attractions at Dudley Zoo
Dudley Zoo and Castle is home to some of the rarest animals in the world, attracting more than 200,000 visitors a year. The Zoo is located within a conservation area incorporating the 11th century Dudley Castle.
Tecton Buildings at Dudley Zoo
Dudley Zoo, in the West Midlands, was founded in 1937. The architects selected to design Dudley Zoo in the 1930s were renowned Modernists, led by Russian-born Berthold Lubetkin, who called themselves ‘The Tecton Group’. They were so-named because of their revolutionary new design of building, incorporating reinforced concrete, called Tecton. The aim of the design of the buildings at Dudley Zoo was to protect the welfare of the animals while meeting visitors’ demands for a clear view from a safe position.
Dudley Zoo is now home to 12 listed Lubetkin-designed concrete structures, built between 1936 and 1937, they are the greatest collection of surviving Tecton buildings in the world and some of the most important modern movement buildings in the UK. As time has moved on and zoological practices have changed some of the Tecton structures have become unused and left to serve only as monuments.
