Brazilian Architects visit ECA

On Tuesday a group of 18 Brazilian Architects and Engineers visited our office. Kristina, Alex and Lara presented an overview of our work and looked in detail at two case studies; the John Hope Gateway at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and the new Herbarium at the Royal Botanic Garden.

The group had come to London on an organised architectural tour to visit Ecobuild and had heard of our work, particularly in the field of sustainable design. As such, we tailored our talks to focus on the environmental principles and systems employed in our recent projects.

It proved to be a stimulating evening; after much discussion, debate and translation between ECA and the Brazilians, we all went to the pub to discuss further architecture, our cultural differences and to introduce them to strong English Beer!
