Seaweed Origin

Seaweed is a natural product with incredible properties that is starting to be utilised increasingly in today’s climate; with local offshore farms beginning to sprout up in Cornwall, the Par Horticultural Seaweed Centre is both a processing plant for horticultural seaweed products and a community space for locals and tourists alike. While distributing these amazing products across the country it was also important to ensure that the project also gave back to the community, with spaces for events, a beautiful garden to enjoy and tourist attractions to experience; bringing people together in Cornwall and providing a new route for income in one of the most impoverished counties in England. Each “wing” of the dock represents the two areas of both ‘production’ and ‘community,’ combining in their use and processing of seaweed.  

Seaweed is the fastest growing biomass in the world, flourishing without using land, fresh water or fertiliser.  Seaweed is a unique untapped resource with many valuable applications. Project aim to discover future possibilities by addressing the origins of  events rather than exploring after-the-fact methods. Therefore, Seaweed Origins will use seaweed seed as a research topic as a bio lab, explore on the basis of existing seaweed farming, and create new features and possibilities of seaweed seed. Establish a new origin liveable future for ourselves, our children and generations to come. To make as seaweed a unique untapped resource with many valuable applications from food to fuel and even pharmaceuticals. We implement regenerative CO2-reducing concepts, products, and applications all over the globe.
