Brockholes Wetlands Centre
Adam Khan Architects has won the RIBA competition to design a new visitor facility for the Brockholes Wetland and Woodland Nature Reserve near Preston in Lancashire. The vision for Brockholes was to design a suite of visitor facilities to inspire and encourage people to visit the site and engage with the natural world. The winning design has been named 'A Floating World' and draws on the rich tradition of wetland dwellings, a floating world of thatch, reeds and willow.
