The Arthur Willis Environment Centre studies plant life, social insects, such as bees and ants, and the powerful relationship between these flora and fauna.

 A sophisticated cooling and heating system allows investigation into the impacts of climate change; research also improves the resistance of African rice and maize to parasites; meanwhile ‘flight-holes’ in the external walls allow the study of native bees. 

The use of natural timber cladding, a sedum-planted roof covering and extensive soft landscaping provide a fitting setting.

The Arthur Willis Environment Centre was a shortlisted project at the 2009 RIBA White Rose Awards.
