Botanical Garden, China.
Kunming Botanical Garden, China, Transformation.
The Kunming Botanical Garden is a part of Kunming Institute of Botany and Botanical University. Kunming is located in China's Yunnan province and has a very stable climate, ideal for growing flowers and plants.
The current garden was founded in 1938 and the years after. Greenhouses are built in concrete. Many of the buildings are in poor condition and do not meet current requirements and wishes.
When we were asked to give a vision for the renewal of the Botanical Garden, we first made an inventory of valuable buildings from the perspective of architecture and integration into the landscape. After that a new landscape was designed with a special large and very high greenhouse at the entrance. For the buildings, the most modern technology would be used for climatization.
