The Eden Project, St Austell, Cornwall
  • About Us

    Eden Project Info

    The Eden Project just outside St Austell, Cornwall has artificial biomes filled with plants that are collected from all around the world, and is located in a reclaimed Kaolinite pit.

    The Eden Project two giant adjoining domes, the first dome emulates a tropical environment, and the second a Mediterranean environment. From the entrance there is a meandering path with views of the two biomes, planted landscapes, including vegetable gardens, and sculptures that include a giant bee and towering robot called RSA WEEE Man created from old electrical appliances.

    The project was conceived by Tim Smit and designed by architect Nicholas Grimshaw. The project took 2½ years to construct and the visitor centre, opened to the public in May 2000, with the full site opening on 17 March 2001. The domes are constructed from hundreds of hexagonal and pentagonal, plastic cells supported by steel frames.
