The building has been designed with the western side clad in local stone and a ‘living green wall’. The eastern side gives the impression that it is floating above the ground. The plaque reads; “Canter” by Andy Scott | unveiled by | HRH The Princess Royal | Chancellor of the University of Edinburgh and | Patron of the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studied | on 1st May 2018 | Carter was commissioned by the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studied and was made possible by generous donations made to our endowment fund.
