One of the UK’s top tourist attractions, the Eden projects hosts multiple biomes with different plant ecosystems. Many of the buildings too are inspired by the mathematical patterns in nature. The roof of the education building The Core is inspired by Phyllotaxis, the arrangement of leaves on a plant stem. The angle between successive leaves is typically equal to a ratio of two successive Fibonacci numbers.
