Architecture: Ecorium

Ecorium of the National Ecological Institute in Korea
Designed by Samoo Architects and Grimshaw Architects

This ecoplex is part of a government initiative designed to preserve the immediate environment while making room for a sustainability research facility.  The original site was originally zoned for industrial facilities, but a collaboration between S.A.M.O.O and Grimshaw led to this large greenhouse complex containing spaces simulating a wide variety of different climate zones.
