The Davies Alpine House in Kew Gardens is designed to house alpine plants which grow above the altitude where trees can survive. This is the 4th alpine house at Kew and it was opened in 2006. The first was opened in 1887. It long 16 meters long and the roof reaches 10 meters high. The building’s built-in systems are designed to control temperature, ventilation and moisture levels, and its pyramid shape reflects the mountain landscapes.
I shot it with a fisheye lens and I really like the distortion it adds to the image.
Thanks for stopping to take a look and as always your comments and critique are most welcome.
