The   Sheffield   Winter   Garden   was   opened   in   2003,   one   of   the   largest temperate   glasshouses   to   be   built   in   the   UK   during   the   last   100   years;   the largest   urban   glasshouse   in   Europe;   and   is   home   to   over   2,500   plants   from around the world. The   building   is   one   of   the   largest   Glued   Laminated   Timber   or   "Glulam" buildings   in   the   UK   (Glulam   is   made   by   forming   and   gluing   strips   of   timber into   specific   shapes). The   wood   used   is   Larch,   a   durable   timber   which   will, over   time,   turn   a   light   silvery   grey   colour,   and   requires   no   preservatives   or coatings.   This   reduces   the   use   of   solvents   and   also   avoids   the   use   of chemicals    that    could    harm    the    plants.    It    has    an    intelligent    Building Management   System   which   controls   fans   and   vents   to   make   sure   the   plants are   cooled   in   summer   and   kept   warm   in   winter.   The   system   will   "learn" year by year. The   bedding   plants   are   changed   five   times   a   year,   to   give   a   seasonal change,   and   all   the   plants   are   watered   by   hose   or   by   watering   can,   as   it   is the only way to ensure that all the plants get the correct amount of water. The   first   eight   bars   of   the   dance   represent   the   shape   of   the   cross-section of the building, and the rest represent the various plants.
