Two million people have now visited the Eden Project in Cornwall, drawn by the vision of its founders - and by the extraordinary feats of architecture, engineering and design that brought that vision to life. The two biomes that form its centrepiece have become iconic structures, already familiar the world over. This beautiful book, illustrated with drawings and plans from the Nicholas Grimshaw archive and stunning photographs, reveals in fascinating detail just how a disused china clay pit became the home to one of the architectural wonders of the world. The introductory essay, by lead architect Andrew Whalley and Hugh Pearman, Sunday Times architectural correspondent, places the biomes in the great English tradition of greenhouses that started with Joseph Paxton.
