Superstructures: Nature Under Glass

I've been watching a great documentary about The Eden Project the largest greenhouse in the world: technologically advanced and an engineering marvel!

A strange structure is taking shape in the rolling green hills of southern England: Engineers are building "Eden".  A sixty metre deep crater is being capped with space-age plastic domes that will be home to thousands of rare plants. The lightweight galvanized steel tubular frames are going up to form enormous self-supporting shells.
