Poplars Visitor Centre

Poplars Visitor Centre

This project sets out to bring a landfill site back into relevant public use through the creation of an Environmental Visitor centre. It was to focus on the Waste Cycle, located alongside a new lake and powered by electricity generated from methane gas leakage from the old landfill. The south-facing structure was set below a planted roof and timber structure and its internal spaces were arranged in an adaptable manner in order to facilitate constant change.
