Eden Project is an environmental complex designed by Tim Smit and designed by architect Nicholas Grimshaw on the theme of nature and sustainable development. It is located 8 kilometers from St Austell in Cornwall, UK. As the millennium approached, l & rsquo; former sleepy mining town of St. Blazey needed d & rsquo; a futuristic update. For fifty years, d & rsquo a mine; clay on the edge of the English city was gradually abandoned, up & rsquo; in the late 1990, when a new concept has been proposed for the area called Eden Project. At & rsquo; polar opposite close to the crater left by the & rsquo; old mine, l & rsquo; Eden Project was designed as a massive greenhouse complex, composed of two biomes bubbling out of the ground and reflecting both a tropical and Mediterranean climate. After the deep depression left the mine was filled with thousands of tonnes of soil.

The garden is a greenhouse, consists of several geodesic domes that create ideal conditions for each species according to their natural climatic zones. These are plants from around the world! This fantastic location attracts crowds of tourists. This unusual garden has been 2001, but has already received fairly wide popularity – he started to run past, it was an ordinary career for the & rsquo; copper mining, l & rsquo; tin and kaolin. When reserves are exhausted, this place has been left to the & rsquo; desertion provided 160 years. Music producer and entrepreneur Tim Smith noticed this site and created such an amazing garden.

The Tropical Biome features & rsquo; rubber plants, bananas and bamboo overlooking the visitors in the dome nearly four acres. The Mediterranean Biome is only 1,6 acres (2 km2) but is similar to capacity with d & rsquo plants, olives and vines. With the magnificent flora, waterfalls and trails wind past massive boulders and ponds and even a few statues can be found carefully placed in the Mediterranean biome. construction began and the two biggest greenhouses in the world were created on two and a half years. At & rsquo; interior hexagons biomes reasons are more & rsquo; d & rsquo million; different plant species, each reflecting the climate of their respective biomes.

The structure used creates a microclimate that produces food, but also several programs and agencies. The ability to retain heat is also beneficial for university buildings heating requirements. The ability to promote a strong identity on campus through a recreational area anchored in the new structures of the & rsquo; University would also generate interest in drawing patrons of the CBD in the patterns. And educate and influence the students and the public.




gardener columnist Alys Fowler discovers how the Cornwall Eden project took over a disused clay pit to create and preserve the largest tropical forest in captivity. Learning from nature, the project used sustainable construction techniques and was a catalyst for economic regeneration in the region.


Skeleton geodesic domes was built from steel tubes that form the hexagonal frames with exterior cladding. L & rsquo; idea of ​​creating these geodesic domes came when nature rebelled against the & rsquo; interference. Eden Project is an environmental complex designed by Tim Smit and designed by architect Nicholas Grimshaw on the theme of nature and sustainable development. The efforts of architects and builders have allowed & rsquo; get a completely clean and respectful of space & rsquo; environment. These huge bubbles can create specific climate zones. The largest biome takes you in a real rainforest. There are also those who can Gladden by the Mediterranean climate and blooming trees. There are also fruit-bananas, coffee trees, rubber and giant bamboo trees. If the intense heat makes you feel bad and ill at & rsquo; comfortable, Eden Project is an environmental complex designed by Tim Smit and designed by architect Nicholas Grimshaw on the theme of nature and sustainable development. This is truly a paradise and he needs constant care. All this is a huge work of architects and botanists. In addition, the singular computer technology constantly monitors the & rsquo; self-regulating temperature, l & rsquo; humidity and the quality of the & rsquo; air.
