The greenhouse for art is a concept developed for a new initiative for Rotterdam: an ArtPark, where different pavilions will provide access to different art forms and display venues. The artpark has been designed as a greenhouse on an elevated platform with an open middle. This donut-typology provides access to the pavilion by way of a large central staircase. The ground floor is an orchard running from outside through to the inside and profiting from the greenhouse climate. The ArtGreenHouse is a hybrid public / sustainable / exhibition machine with a strong iconic feature.
