A Pavilion in Botanical Garden

Aerial View of the glass roof and the play of shadows.
The geometry of plants has long been a fascinating subject. Inspiring too has been the use of geometry in works of great architects such as Frei Otto, designer of the Munich Olympic Stadium and Buckminster Fuller, the inventor of the geodesic dome. Here is my proposal for a pavilion in a botanical garden.
My friend Kathleen is giving an Ikebana lesson!
"Ah yes, the delights of flower arrangement!"
A butterfly's view
Step right in, sit right down.
Underneath the arches. The curved wall embraces the group.

This blog is dedicated to my mother Veronica, who loved gardens and flowers.
