Landscape architect Charles Funke Associates has designed a canopy for an Arabic garden at the Chelsea Flower Show to moderate the supply of light to the garden's delicate plants at the flick of a switch. The design, for the ruler of the Arab Emirates, features 18 aluminium aerofoil fins which open and close electronically. The show runs from 23-26 May.
