A major project by Barton Willmore International Design in Saudi Arabia is set to create the world’s largest botanical gardens.
King Abdullah International Gardens in Riyadh will include two giant domes – planned to be five times larger than the Eden Project in Cornwall, UK.
The outdoor area will include an open museum for plants, seeds bank and rocky garden, while the plans will also include research institutes, retail and hospitality outlets and a theatre, it added.
The project will focus on local plant life in the Arabian Peninsula.
Construction is already underway, with the levelling of the site and fencing works already completed.
