Kew Gardens greenhouse inspiration

Kew Gardens has so many fantastic greenhouses, all very well-designed, permanent, highest possible quality, etc. I looked for secret slapdash plastic tents and didn’t see a single one. There must be something messy behind the scenes, but I saw very little in the way of greenhouse improv. These are a few of my favorites. The Temperate House is of course so impressive, perfectly restored, impeccable in every way…but the spaceship qualities of the Alpine House and the peeling charm of the Palm House seemed more habitable. I stayed nearly all day and would happily move in, Biosphere style, just let me know, ok Kew?
