Grimshaw will design the 600,000 square metre scheme

UK architect Grimshaw has been appointed to design the botanical garden project in Sharjah.

The Sharjah Botanical Garden will contain a rich and diverse range of natural habitats from around the world, set within the overall garden landscape. Individual biome enclosures will contain specific plant life environments. It will also have nurseries, a training centre, research institute and recreational areas.

The 600,000 square-metre development is similar in scale and ambition to the Eden Project in the UK and the Oman Botanic Garden near Muscat. Grimshaw designed both of these schemes.
