Ecobuild 2011

Ecobuild is the construction industry's annual exposition featuring all things ecological and environmental. Unfortunately today was the last day, so you've missed this year's event... but there is always next year.

It's a good chance to see the latest developments in materials and products, take in some free lectures or seminars and generally exhaust yourself walking several miles round the exhibition halls.

This year it moved from its old home at Earls Court to London's Excel Centre. I thought maybe it would be easier to navigate with less chance of me getting lost. Not the case... I still walked in circles a few times and must have covered several miles.

As usual there were a lot of stands which didn't visually make much impression and there were a few which stood out.

On my way out I was rather taken with the larger than life statues of the dockworkers with the redundant cranes on the dock in the background.
