The Core, Eden Project, St Austell | Architectural Interiors Photographer

The Core is the visitor and teaching center designed by Jolyon Brewis of Nicholas Grimshaw and Partners at the Eden Project, St Austell, Cornwall. The inspiration for the structure was ‘nature’s architecture’ and incorporated a central trunk and a shading canopy roof. The striking feature of the roof is constructed from intricate, curved timber beams in Fibonacci spirals. This pattern was discovered by Fibonacci in nature in many forms including sunflower head seeds, snail shells and pine cones. The timber ceiling has real similarities to the roof installed in the Savill Building in Berkshire.

The structure is built close to the Eden biomes in the same reclaimed china clay quarry. The walls are insulated with recycled newspapers and ground pipes with warm or cool air carried 2m underground before entering the building. Photovoltaic panels in the copper roof provide electricity. The structural beams are Red Spruce glue laminated layers of timber (Glulam) which provide great strength for unusual support designs or large spans.
