Muttart Conservatory

Location: Edmonton, Alberta
Function: Four glass pyramids, each housing a different biome.

From their brouchure:

The conservatory was designed in the early 1970's by architect Peter Hemingway. Half of the $2 million construction cost was donated by the Gladys and Merril Muttart Foundation, with the City of Edmonton and the Province of Alberta providing the balance. The Pyramids first opened in 1976. In 1980 a 3700 square meter greenhouse complex completed the project.

The Muttart Conservatory is more than just a botanic garden. It hosts many of Edmonton's premier floral shows, educational programs for school children, horticultural courses for adults and continues as a very popular site for weddings, banquets and business functions.
