HOUSING NATURE, REPRESENTING »NATURE«: ARCHITECTURE OF CONSERVATORIES, GREENHOUSES AND THEIR TRANS-PROGRAMMATIC SCIONS
Buildings intended specifically for growing plants – greenhouses, glasshouses, conservatories, orangeries and similar – represent relatively recent addition to the history and repertoire of architecture. In their three centuries of notable existence these structures managed to not only enable cultivation of climatically-exotic plants far away from their natural range, but also to form a particular genre of architecture, which developed through different phases, from high exclusivity to near irrelevance. Starting, not only from historical examples, but also form the general promise of enclosed ecologies, this paper aims both to analyze the phenomenon of greenhouse, as well as to propose directions for its possible further developments.
