Project Details

This new iconic structure raises awareness for Denver Botanic Gardens’ important work in botanical and environmental research. Both form and skin of the building were inspired by natural phenomena – the former mimics the collision of two tectonic plates; the latter recalls the honeycomb pattern of a beehive composed of almost five hundred hexagonal Swisspearl® panels.
