The Eden Project - The Core

Photographs taken 2007

 For a nocturnal look at Eden, see the Eden Project at Night page, or return to the main Eden Project page

"The Core" at the Eden Project opened in October 2005. The new building opened as an interactive education centre that shows in a very visual and physical way how we depend on the Earth's eco-systems, and what plants really do for us. It shows how wasteful, in energy terms, processed food is - taking a sledgehammer to crack a nut! Indeed the whole building is reminiscent in its design of a flowering plant.

The Core is an extremely thought provoking experience, and something that stays with you. Inside is a display demonstrating the Earth's eco-system and how plants keep the world working...

...and other displays demonstrating how processed foods are so wasteful in the amount of energy taken to produce them.

The WEEE Man (and our throw-away society)

Outside in the outdoor biome, there is now the "WEEE Man" - three and a half tons worth of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment that is thrown away during each and every average human lifetime - illustrated by a "monster" creature built up of all the equipment discarded by one person.
