Outside the exhibition space centre The Sacred Seed Room more than 60,000 palps are growing in all directions. During the day, the palps can illuminate the interior as light-transmitting optical fibres; in the evening, they can illuminate the entire construction with the help of light sources placed inside. Inside, a visit to several sections will encourage you to pay attention to the role of nature and to reflect on how to face the challenges facing the city.

- The 'Green City' reveals the urban landscapes of the four UK capital cities, where plants, water and urban architecture merge in harmony.

- The Sacred Seed Room displays all kinds of seeds from The Millennium Seed Bank, Kew, UK.

- The 'Dynamic City' displays living and imaginary plants to demonstrate the UK's creativity and cutting edge technology.
