The Eden Project

Architect: Grimshaw Architects
Project Year: 2001

Theoretical Statement: The Eden Project exemplifies the necessity to merge performative architecture with landscape in order to adapt and overcome issues faced in the 21st century & beyond.

Conclusion: A rapidly changing 21st century requires architecture to be agile in its response to social, political and environmental climates. The Eden Project illustrates this necessity through creating an outcome that is a direct representation of the needs of both its immediate and broader context. A marriage of performative architecture and the natural landscape.
