the earth centre
entrance building
A simple light weight entrance structure conceived by Architect, Bill Dunster to provide a gateway to the Earth Centre. The building is engineered almost entirely from recycled timber in both structural and mechanical terms. The columns were manufactured from recycled telegraph poles and the glulam beams were made from small strips of low grade timber.
