The Core, at the world famous Eden project, was officially
opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 2006. The stunning design
is topped by a roof created from an intricate web of curved
timber beams and based on Fibonacci spirals - a pattern found
in many natural forms including the seeds of a sunflower head,
pine cones and snail shells.
Major sponsors are the Millennium Commission (£10.5
million), South West Regional Development Agency (£2.9

Fund (£1 million).
