Glass Greenhouse: Haarkon’s World Tour of Amazing Botanical Spaces
'Glasshouse:the primary purpose of the structure must be to house plant life. We find beauty in the idea that someone would construct an entire building with the pose of housing plant life' - India Hobson & Magnus Edmondson
The Haarkon Greenhouse Tour began as a self-initiated adventure in Oxford's botanical gardens four years ago. Since then, Magnus and India have visited countless locations in the UK, Europe, America, Asia and beyond in search of dream greenhouses, capturing dramatic palm houses, tropical hothouses and private potting sheds along the way.
Divided into seven thematic chapters - History, Specimen, Community, Research, Pleasure, Hobbyist and Architecture - the featured greenhouses are depicted via a series of photo-essays that draw out the style, plant collections and character of each space. The final chapter, #Haarkon House, shows us how to bring the greenhouse aesthetic home with advice on selecting, styling and caring for plants.
"The photos in this book are truly beautiful. I'm inspire to tour and explore more glasshouse beauties each time I leave home. The writing is written in first person and speaks about the authors experiences and travels. Beautiful." - Sarah, Melbourne
