More Interestring Facts About The Worlds Largest Greenhouse

The Eden Project is a visitor attraction in Cornwall, UK, and it is home to the world’s largest greenhouse. Inside the artificial bio mes are plants that are collected from all around the world. The
project is located in a reclaimed Kaolinite pit (clay China), located 1.25 mi (2 kilometers) from the town of St Blazey
and 5 kilometers (3 mi) from the larger town of St Austell, Cornwall.

The complex is dominated by two huge enclosures consisting of adjoining domes that house thousands of plant species. Each enclosure emulates a natural biome. The first dome emulates a tropical environment, and the second a Mediterranean environment. The domes consist of hundreds of hexagonal and pentagonal, inflated, plastic cells supported by steel frames.
