The competing needs of visitors, plants, horticulturists, landscape designers, and commercial viability were balanced by CGD in the design of this display greenhouse. Conceived as an attraction at a commercial garden, the building itself is a spectacle; the interior space being enclosed in glass block, a fabric roof, and folding glass walls to an exterior lawn and garden.
