A new greenhouse complex has been added to the 50-year-old botanical gardens in the Zurich community of Grüningen,. The sophisticated steel and glass structure with a glass area of 480 m2 mimics the structure of four trees through its captivating form. Large spans, structural and constructive challenges are just three points which identify this project as a typical steel-glass construction from Tuchschmid.
