I was really excited to take a walking tour of the WWF Living Planet Centre today! Here are some pictures and observations from the space.
The #WWF may be one of the most recognised conservation organisations around the world, but their building the Living Planet Centre is one of the most environmentally friendly buildings in the UK. I was surprised to find that they have three massive trees in the middle of their workspace.
These pods are the first things you notice when you enter the building. Open to the public and themed around the segment WWF deals with like wildlife, oceans, freshwater and forests. Each zone features fascinating films that bring nature to life.
One can spend hours exploring and discovering more about each diverse environment. This image is from within the oceans pod watching a live feed of turtles from the Galapagos Islands.
You can immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of nature while the storyteller talks and you learn about the #WWF projects around the world including the personal stories of the people involved.
Each pod is quite interactive and you can test your knowledge about our world or simply take fun quizzes like: Which animal are you most like? Aimed at kids but equally fun for adults.
The building also houses some brilliant Andy Warhol pieces donated by the artist himself among other creatively placed art, origami and other pieces on display all over the premises.
The #WWF Living Planet Centre represents both a revolution in green architecture and a model for sustainability true to 21st-century architecture. (From Left-Right) Natural lighting and heating, Devices to play forest and bird sounds for white noise, carpets made from what was once old fishermen nets that destroyed the ocean and finally roof gutters that conserve rainwater to be used within the building premises.
The centre is located in Woking, Surrey in the United Kingdom and tours run every other Friday and last around 30minutes. Book yours HERE
