“Lee Valley Lido”, The Lee Valley struggles with low water quality. This project seeks to engage a new audience with questions regarding the impact environmental issues such as water pollution and the political intervention required to bring about a balance between humans and the environment. The project aims to raise awareness for the impact the anthropacene has on our waterways by using the process of eutrification to communicate the effects agriculture has on the Lea River. The building is comprised of a number of educational spaces to investigate and spread information about new ways to tackle climate change; walk ways, cafe and the canteen create spaces for spontaneous interactions to take place between researches and the public. The naturally filtered pool educates the impact of cleaning our rivers and provides and active hub for the local community.
