London-based architecture firm Zaha Hadid Architects recently unveiled their designs for a brand new development, including a large stadium and office complex, with a truly environmental focus. Referred to as the “Gateway to Stroud”, the new green-technology center is a collaborative project between ZHA and British green-energy company Ecotricity.

Connected to the nearby campus by a rather aesthetically-pleasing wooden bridge that stretches across Nymphsfield Road, the development’s most prominent feature will be the all-wooden stadium which is set to serve as the new home of Forest Green Rovers F.C. Green in design and powered entirely by renewable energy sources, it truly is an achievement in eco-friendly design. These green credentials will be carried on throughout the accompanying office space, created from the ground up with sustainability in mind.

Ecotricity state on their website that the development’s state of the art office space will be “a place where green businesses and technology companies come together and share ideas: a real focal point of creativity and innovation for the area and a part of the green industrial revolution that’s beginning to take off around the world.”

“We hope to push the boundaries of sustainable development, create 4,000 jobs in the green economy, a world class football stadium and make more room for nature with a big biodiversity boost, as well as create a new ‘Gateway to Stroud,’” Ecotricity founder Dale Vince said in a statement.

Details on the project are scarce at present beyond the above, but we will do our best to keep you updated as more news emerges.
