Errol Wildland Support Centre
Placed on the boundary between the human and the natural, the Errol Wildland Support Centre explores the process and requirements of re-wilding, and humanity's interaction with nature.
Taking inspiration from the Knepp Wildland project in Sussex, the Errol Wildland Support Centre explores the creation of a re-wilding project in Errol, Perthshire. The building aims to support this process, providing facilities for the handling of large herbivores introduced to the Wildland, facilities for wildlife rescue, and space for research. Much of the design is driven by functional requirements, most clearly seen in the animal handling system, which is based on the designs for humane livestock handling systems by Temple Grandin. The building exists on the boundary between the human and the natural, exploring humanity’s past, present and future interactions with nature.
