First pictures of Grimshaw’s new Eden Project

Proposed Eden Project North on Morecambe seafront by Grimshaw Architects

Architect completes feasibility study for Morecambe ’mussels’

Grimshaw has released the first images of its Eden Project North proposal for Morecambe in Lancashire.

It would be the first UK Eden Project since the original opened in Cornwall in 2001, though Grimshaw – the original architect – is also working on a string of Edens in China.

The Morecambe seafront project looks strikingly different from St Austell’s biomes, with crescent-shaped pavilions which are said to be inspired by mussels.
