Architecture firm, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, designed the new development.    

The project signals an important step in the regeneration of the Dundee waterfront, said The Eden Project company. 

It is inspired by Dundee’s Nine Incorporated Trades and will introduce a new set of contemporary Guilds. 

Eden Project Dundee, set back from the bank of River Tay, will have exhibits, food and beverage outlets, and retail spaces. 

Also, performance space, immersive learning and play experiences, horticulture, music and art.

A planning application will be submitted this autumn, following a public consultation process.  

“This process is an opportunity for the city of Dundee to help shape the planning application and act as a co-creator of Eden Project Dundee,” said The Eden Project 

Rachel Sayers, partner at FCBStudios, added: “Our emerging scheme, in a disused gas works in Dundee’s docklands, takes a transformative approach to this former industrial site. 

“The project will enable social and economic regeneration, building communities and Eden’s ambition to give people wisdom around reconnection to the natural world.” 

Adding: “We have taken a regenerative approach to the design that will start to restore the site, an approach which will restore biodiversity to the site, reusing materials to create an immersive pedagogic facility.  

“We are looking forward to listening to more to people in Dundee during the upcoming consultation, to inform the design development.”
