A new Glasshouse and Gardens are being created at Woolbeding. They will offer visitors an opportunity to learn about the plants that were originally brought back along the Silk Route from Asia to Europe.
Funded by the Woolbeding Charity (the residuary charity for the work of The Monument Trust, one of the Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts), the Glasshouse is being designed by Heatherwick Studio. The building will have ten sides and will be ‘a crowning achievement in a new tradition of contemporary design to recover life, beauty and pleasure for visitors’ – Mark Woodruff, The Woolbeding Charity.
The Silk Route Gardens and Heatherwick Glasshouse will open in Spring 2021. More details can be found at http://www.sfct.org.uk/woolbeding.html
