About this talk

Running time: 34 minutes

The Eden Project is an ongoing project in a disused quarry in Cornwall, where the largest plant enclosure in the world has been erected.

The principal structures on the site are a sequence of great transparent domes or biomes - providing two climatic zones, humid-tropical and warm-temperate; a building linking them and a hilltop visitor centre; all designed by Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners (see Industrial Architecture). His partner Andrew Whalley, who is in charge of the project, describes the development of this remarkable and beautiful scheme.

Since this recording was made, a third biome is being added, to house the desert environment.
