There is considerable interest in having a Peatland Pavilion at the up-coming UNFCCC COP26 to be held in Glasgow in November 2021. The purpose of the pavilion would be to provide a focus for discussions about the increasingly recognised importance of peatlands and their role as major global stores of soil carbon but also, in their damaged state, as large sources of carbon emissions. UEL Architecture Masters students were set the task of developing potential designs for such a pavilion with the requirement that it incorporate an installation designed by the artist and UEL lecturer Michael Pinsky. The architectural concept drawn up by Hussein Ail Kassim and Mohammed Patel offers some thought-provoking ideas for such a Peatland Pavilion and thus opens up the debate about what form, both conceptually and architecturally, such a pavilion might take. It is worth highlighting that the themes of the different environment domes envisaged by Hussein and Mohammed can each be related to particular aspects of importance to peatlands.
