Inside the two biomes at Eden Project (in England) are plants that are collected from many diverse climates and environments. The covered biomes are constructed from a tubular steel (hex-tri-hex) with mostly hexagonal external cladding panels made from the thermoplastic ETFE.
The Rainforest Biome is the largest indoor rainforest in the world with over 1,000 varieties of plants.
