Louis, few things are as pleasant as a trip to the Garden to smell and view the camellias in the Linnean House, the oldest continuously operating greenhouse in the United States.

BoxLouis, MOComment The New Year We are now mov- ing into the second year of our capital campaign and are pleased with the results thus far.
I want to extend congratula- tions to the Board of Trustees who joint- ly have provided the most valuable resource, that of leadership, and have donated generously to the campaign. The Garden membership has proven again to be a splendid asset to the cam- paign.
Beginning in , we will witness the completion of our three new greenhouse ranges increasing our growing space by 30 percent, the restoration of the Clima- tron both inside and out, and the con- struction of the Temperate House and Interpretive Center as part of the Clima- tron complex. Louis residents to the Garden each spring. The arrival of the seven magnificent Milles sculptures to be placed in the beau- tifully renovated lily pools between the Climatron and Flora Gate will highlight our activities this spring.
With our new state-of-the-art greenhouse ranges in full operation during , almost all of the traditional flower shows will be back on schedule. It is, as always, the unending and won- derful support of Garden Members and the entire St. Louis community that allows us to make each year better than the last. The Trust funds have been earmarked for the Cen- ter for Home Gardening.

If you're a Member of the Garden, as I am, most likely you are aware of changes planned for the Climatron and its compan- ion greenhouses, the Desert House and the Mediterranean House. The original greenhouses were con- structed in , 47 years before the Climatron was erected on the site of the old Palm House, whose portico was retained in the Climatron.
These green- houses have introduced millions of people to plants that require protection from St. Louis' frigid winters. However, time has taken its toll, and both greenhouses need to be replaced. The deteriorating Mediterranean House will be replaced by a new Temperate House, which will be about twice as large.
This modern display greenhouse will be connected to a new centralized mechani- cal system in the Climatron being designed by engineers at Ross and Baraz- zuni, Inc. A new Desert House will even- tually replace the old one, and the Interpretive Center will stand at the rear of the complex.
Let me tell you about the behind-the- scenes evolution of these exciting new buildings. I'm a colleague of the architects at The Christner Partnership, the St. Louis firm designing the Interpretive Center and the Temperate House. The firm was also a major contributor to the Master Plan for the new Climatron complex.
I watched the designs take shape from the day the architects came back from their first meeting with the other consul- tants. The context for the new designs was presented by Director Peter Raven, who emphasized that the Garden, above all, is a place of beauty which also teaches the public about plants and provides sci- entists with a living laboratory.
The design for the new greenhouses began with a symmetrical concept based on the lines radiating from the center of the Climatron.This concept was compati- ble with the Climatron's position at the heart of the Garden. The dome is also at the west terminus of the original entry axis to the Garden, created by the Flora Gate and intervening lily ponds.
The historic significance of the entry axis war- ranted a sympathetic response from the new design. The classical geometry of the entry axis and the dome's circle suggested a for- mal design for the new greenhouses.
A computer graphics system designed by McDonnell Douglas Corporation provided a tool for creating a series of design solutions responding to the above considerations. The Temperate House design began with a peaked roof, reminiscent of the Mediterranean House.
During the design process, the peak shifted to become the outer edge of the building. In contrast, the reversed slope of the Desert House gestures toward the south of the Garden without concealing the Climatron from visitors approaching it. This orientation also allows the sun to penetrate at the proper angle. The final design's asym- metrical effect supports the beautiful curve of the dome, yet also achieves an independent status for both new green- houses.
The new greenhouses will flank the An artist's rendering of the interior of the new Temperate House, described in detail on page 5. Climatron in two curving shapes with sloping roofs. Like greenhouses of the past, their steel structure has become more than just a structural element of the physical building.
The radiating pattern of custom tube trusses emphasizes the cen- trality of the Climatron. Other structural elements, such as the tracery of the dou- ble columns, contribute understated embellishment to the greenhouses while maintaining their background role relative to plant displays.
The Temperate House faces north- west, and takes advantage of its orienta- tion toward the sun with a high outer wall of glass.This special single-pane glass is coated with a low-emissivity invisible coating that bounces summer heat off of the building and retains winter heat.
Heating will be provided by hot water radi- ation, and cooling by a fogging system. Vertical glass will have vents that are mechanically operated by the complex's new central computer system.
The com- puter can back this up with the fogging system. The height of the Temperate House will accommodate sizable trees such as the Australian gum tree Euca- lyptus erythrocorys. The Interpretive Center will be con- structed at the rear of the dome. It will have double doors leading into the Clima- tron, the Desert House and the Temper- ate House and will contain displays and visitor amenities. It will be an under- stated, low, windowless structure of naturally colored masonry units and accenting brick coursing.
Barnett, will be a focal point in the new Temperate House. We thank those donors whose generosity helped us reach this point in our fundraising pro- gress. At present, to the north of the Clima- tron stands the Mediterranean House, dating fromIt displays temperate- zone plants from around the world, spe- cies which must be grown indoors because of their inability to survive Midwest- ern winters.
The Mediterranean House is now quite antiquated and must be replaced. Louis architectural firm. It was a challenging assignment to design a dis- play house that would not only reinforce and respect the Climatron's powerful architectural vitality, but would also be an attractive and highly functional building in its own right. The end result is an excel- lent response to this challenge.
The pre- ceding article describes the building and relates many of the complex factors that had to be considered in their design work. The Temperate House's new interior dis- play gardens are described below. The Temperate House will approxi- mately double the display space currently available in the Mediterranean House.Alan Godlewski, the Garden's director of horticulture, notes that, "This allows us to expand dramatically the numbers and types of plants we can exhibit.
We'll be able to bring in some of the truly fascinat- ing, diverse, and beautiful temperate spe- cies from many other parts of the warm temperate world in addition to the Medi- terranean Basin, such as Africa, Austra- lia, South America, China, Korea, Japan, coastal California, and the southeastern United States.
Briefly, the new displays are: Riparian Gardens: Three areas representing distinct geographic regions will display plants of moist, warm temper- ate areas often associated with streams and other smaller waterways. These areas in nature are often oases set in nor- mally dry, rocky hillside landscapes. Vis- itors will have the opportunity to see exotics unique to certain habitats, as well as plant family diversity and links across continents.
Rustic Arbor: Vine arbors and pergolas are common components of hillside ter- race scenes in Mediterranean countries, providing decoration and shade. This structure, of rough-hewn timbers, will allow visitors to pass beneath tender flowering vines from several temperate regions.
Moorish Garden: This formal garden will feature rotating displays of colorful, primarily Mediterranean annuals sur- rounding a traditionally styled fountain.
Inspired by the Court of the Lions, a spec- tacular historic Moorish pleasure garden in Alhambra, Spain, its other classical fea- tures will include citrus and cypress trees, wrought iron gates, wall-climbing and trellised vines, and mosaic-patterned pavement.
Overlook: The Overlook will be situ- ated on the highest point in the Temperate House.

We are so glad she did! Cloe is our little forest nymph. She saw a tree that Trevor mentioned he bet she could climb … so she did! Speaking of trees — at the very end of the photo session, Trevor spotted a hawk up in one! It was just sitting there watching us intently. As we walked back to our vehicles, we saw it dive bomb into the pond to attempt to catch some fish! It was a really cool experience!
