A fragment of a greenhouse built to express their importance in the history of the European garden.

The building, designed in 1992, was conceived as a reference library and research centre on plants as well as a public performance space for theatre, conferences, exhibitions and other municipal events. It was also envisaged as a peaceful sheltered space and tea house within the 5 hectare landscape designed by Kathryn Gustafson.
