Core  



This project proposes a nuclear waste disposal plant, connected to the industrial railway through the step archaeology of a concrete platform. A heavy concrete core containing highly radioactive material sits within a lightweight polycarbonate research structure. As part of decommissioning in 60 years, the temporary lab spaces are dismantled, whilst the concrete core and platform continue to contain the radioactive nuclear material inside, introducing a theme of life after death to the project.
