This complex is set beneath a structure - designed by Michael Hopkins (1999) - made up of a fabric roof pulled over angled masts. Inside, you can delve into the history and beauty of the planet, thanks to a host of spectacular technologies (videos, 3D, special effects, interactive displays etc). Activities are proposed in a stone amphitheatre that can accommodate up to 1 000 spectators.
