Site on film
The Suffolk energy-from-waste facility is to be the subject of a film show-casing the work of Grimshaw, the architects of the building.
Nick Grimshaw, founder of the practice, featured in a BBC series about eminent British architects, and on the back of this he commissioned a film company to produce a series of short films about key Grimshaw projects. The Suffolk building was chosen to be one of these, alongside the Eden Project in Cornwall and the Fulton Centre in New York.
Filming took place earlier this month, and although the focus was on the architecture, the producers were also keen to explore what local people thought about the building. So, as well as interviews with the architects, and staff from both SUEZ and Suffolk County Council, the film also included the views of Penny Pearson and Chris Studd, local residents and members of the site’s community liaison group.
