A heavenly garden

In Cornwall huge sphere greenhouses were built: huge bubbles made up of plastic hexagons with a metallic framework. Inside these domes the habitats of the tropical mild-wet climate of South America, Malaysia, Oceania and Mediterranean was rebuilt. Outside the typical vegetation of the area has been kept. Birds, insects and reptiles were inserted into these habitats in order to keep plant parasites under control. In fact these domes act as real labs, where the different biological methods in anti-parasite fight are tested, as well as the use of waste to fertilize the land. Moreover, the soil applied on the greenhouses derives from industrial waste composting.
