As part of the second phase of its development, the firm Grimshaw has designed and built a series of biomes which thread through 2.2 hectares of the site, creating massive greenhouses which are home to vast humid tropic and warm temperate zones.”]

Both structurally and spatially, the domes are an exercise in efficiency. Constructed of hex-tri-hex double layer space frames, light-weight and easily transportable tube steel and joints rely on geometry rather than mass to create these soaring structures. The domes are enclosed with a high performance ETFE foil which maximize surface area while minimizing perimeter detailing.
