The Calyx forms a protective layer that unfolds to display a precious botanical interior.
Rather than a typical building, The Calyx can be considered as an assembly of “suggestively delineated and light glassy volumes.”
The structure’s material lightness invites the background to become foreground and demonstrates a respect for the botanical setting.
The design is most powerful in its capacity to continually shift perspectives between foreground and background, building and landscape.
The existing Arc Glasshouse by Ken Woolley, finished in 1987, has been gently upgraded with new glazing and a polish. Inside, the Arc Glasshouse features the intricate organic geometries of otherworldly plants.
