LafargeHolcim Foundation Prize Winning Projects in Sustainable Construction

Project Summary

Environmental Education Center in the Woods

This entry from Italy is merited for what the authors call a re-naturalization program. An important environmental contribution is made in that the proposal calls for restoring a landscape left ecologically impoverished after drainage intervention and intensive farming during the last century.

In this respect, the project offers a beneficial environmental “refund,” serving to establish a zone protected from future urban development.
