Unlike its bigger sister, the small greenhouse in the Botanical Gardens has no reminiscences of gothick. The structure is starkly modern and almost abstract, with barely the amount of detailing necessary to prevent boredom. Details such as the circles at the corners, which define the proportions of the piers, the cast-iron columns all around and the framed Xs at the doors.
