The Three Climate Greenhouse is a genuine eye-catcher. It was designed in 1993 by Zwarts & Jansma Architects as a huge, ultramodern construction. In this greenhouse you can find three different zones with different climates, representing the subtropics, the desert, and the tropics. Each zone has its own temperature, humidity, and air circulation. Different routes take you through dry scrubland, desert, or jungle.
The Hortus is working on a large-scale project in which this greenhouse will be completely renovated in a sustainable manner, and in which the layout will be changed to tell the story of biodiversity and climate. Read more about the project here.
