The Climatron

Built in 1960, the Missouri Botanical Garden’s Climatron is an a very remarkable architectural structure. Used as a tropical greenhouse, it is a geodesic dome with no structural support inside.

Floating in the reflecting pool are Chihuly glass objects. Chihuly had a display of his artwork in the Gardens and after the show, these were left for permanent display.
