The National Ecological Institute of South Korea recently released plans for a large-scale nature reserve. Designed by architectural firm SAMOO, the “Ecorium Project” will be a striking environmental center spread out over a 33,000 square meter area of natural environment.
Featuring eco domes, greenhouses, a water reserve, and an education center, the Ecorium Project will serve to educate people about the world's natural eco-systems, and how to best protect them.
“The National Ecological Institute, South Korea is intended to do comprehensive study of the converging eco-systems of nature, human and climate to ensure safety, stability and the harmonious coexistence of competing agendas,” said a spokesperson for Samoo. “The NEI will play a important role as a think tank for research and policy making.”
