Ecopark was part of the section 106 affordable housing element of the third phase of the Gallions Reach Urban Village in the heart of Thamesmead. The village comprises of over 1500 homes, shops and a school and is arranged around a central ‘ecological corridor’. Ecopark was designed to show how the latest ideas in sustainable, low-energy living could be put into practice.
To support the development an interactive exhibition was designed where visitors, including many school parties, played interactive games to discover what the impact of un-sustainable human actions has on our environment. A ‘naked house’ was left unfinished in places to show visitors many of the special eco features. All the information and rationale behind the project was designed into the Ecopark book.
