The education center, named "The Core" and costing £ 15m, is shaped like a sunflower. Its premises will host exhibitions, film screenings and classes for children. Depicting the core of a flower, the exterior of the building is made of 157 tons of Cornish granite and clad with copper sheets. A stone spiral by Peter Randall Page will be placed in the center of the structure. Inside the building there are three floors connected by a staircase and an elevator. An exhibition hall is located below, on the second tier exhibitions and conferences will also be held, as well as classes for children's circles. The top floor will be occupied by a café serving the "super food" of the future.
The shape and size of many elements of the architectural project were calculated using a numerical sequence discovered by Leonardo da Pisa, or Fibonacci, an Italian mathematician of the 13th century: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34 … This idea is quite in line with the recent hobbies of architects for mathematical laws of harmony and natural forms.
The "core" is immersed in the ground for more than half of its volume, therefore it easily fits into the ensemble of "biomes" - high-tech greenhouses that make up the "Eden" complex.
