Eden Framed

By pamelajean
Biomes at the Eden Project viewed through the hemp fence.

The biomes are the biggest conservatories in the world. You could fit the Tower of London in the rainforest biome.
Building these ‘lean-to greenhouses’ on an uneven surface that changed shape was tricky – ‘bubbles’ were used because they can settle on any shaped surface. The architect got the idea while washing up!

The hemp fence is a very stylist barrier using hemp ropes, not only an exhibit about the useful nature of hemp fibre, designed by George Fairhurst, but also a necessity because, in order to grow hemp, Eden needed an industrial license and a physical barrier around the crop, which became an artistic installation.
Visitors are invited to stick their necks through to see what’s on the other side.
If you’re interested, you can see it HERE.

Yes, a clever image and a most interesting place!
A natural gateway to a plethora of plastics shielding the nature inside.
