Greenhouses and Conservatories - Olivier de Vleeschouwer Greenhouses and Conservatories - Olivier de Vleeschouwer

Greenhouses and conservatories have a long and distinguished history. Starting in ancient China and the Roman Empire, the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries saw them housing rare and treasured spices and fruits from the colonies that were quite literally worth their weight in gold. Some of the most spectacular examples were commissioned by kings and queens, like the stunning organgeries at Versailles or Victoria's Crystal Palace that housed the first International Exhibition, symbolizing the glory and pride of an era. Olivier de Vleeschouwer's fascinating text examines the role of greenhouses and conservatories, in public and in private gardens, from their beginnings to the present day.
