function exposition space, mixed-use development
contributed by JuanSebastian

The Orquideorama is an organically expanding wooden meshwork of modular “flower-tree” structures that weaves its way through the garden’s heart. The project unites the micro and macro worlds through an elegant synthesis of cellular and architectural forms. The architects wanted the ‘Orquideorama’ to grow in the same way that a garden seeds and develops, with one “flor-árbol” popping up next to another. This lead them to design the installation as a series of interconnected modular structures specialized for a variety of functions including event halls, butterfly reserves, and flower gardens. Each ‘flor-árbol’ is composed of a steel reinforced trunk and six hexagonal petals that form an intricately latticed patio. The plants situated beneath each trunk are sustained via rainwater collected by the petals, and are protected from the elements by the translucent pine wood weave that is sourced from reforested lands.
