JARDIM_BOTANICO_ESTUFA_GRANDE_02

In the University town known for its heavy Mannerist palaces and heavier Fascist colleges, stands this jewel of a building with the slenderest proportions and most elegant industrial-gothick tracery in steel and glass. For some reason, glass and metal have been painted white, which only makes the ensemble more ghost-like.

Jardim Botânico de Coimbra, 1856, Coimbra
