Eden Project s a visitor attraction in Cornwall in the United Kingdom, including the world's largest greenhouse. Inside the artificial biomes are plants that are collected from all around the world. The domes consist of hundreds of hexagonal and pentagonal, inflated, plastic cells supported by steel frames. The first dome emulates a tropical environment, and the second a Mediterranean environment. Invented by Jay Baldwin, architect Nicholas Grimshaw, opening 17.3.2001.
The Eden Project is the largest plant enclosure in the world, built in the lightest and most ecological way possible. The project is situated in a 15-hectare landscaped site, formerly a worked-out Cornish clay pit.

The biomes house plants from around world, with visitors being able to visit the Tropics and the Mediterranean without ever leaving England.
Field of Light was an installation at the Eden Project in Cornwall, England by lighting designer Bruce Munro, which recently closed in March. The installation was comprised of 6,000 acrylic stems with fibre optic cables that represent light flowers or seeds that "blossom" at night.
