The Eden Project in Cornwall / UK
The first ideas of the Eden Project were drawn and designed on napkins over a drink in a pub in 1996. Afterwards the Architect firm Grimshaw gets behind the project. Because of the uneven and shaped surface the the design of the structure evolved in to huge bubbles. The project is located in Cornwall / UK.
Inspiration and Architecture
There are two Biome buildings which are Rainforest Biome and the Mediterranean Biome. Each of them consists of several domes which are joined together. The architecture of the project is unique which is inspired by the nature. It has a Contex-specific design and all buildings are Low-energy buildings.
The project aims how mankind can work towards a better future.
