Greenhouse in Pirque by Max Núñez Arquitectos
Alexander Zaxarov
Feb 13, 2020

Max Núñez’ greenhouse in Chile gives the impression of a floating glass box.

Modernism meets innovation at Max Núñez Arquitectos’ greenhouse in Pirque, Chile, where a steel frame supports two barrel vaults built of glass blocks, and its modest glass plinth creates a seductive illusion.

he glasshouse is a typology that exists on the cutting edge of art and science, technology and style. Starting with medicinal plants, then scientific research, botanical display and finally industrial-scale cultivation, the evolution of the modern greenhouse has closely tracked available technology, from the development of glass itself to new kinds of structure and materials.
