The Barbican Conservatory is the second largest conservatory (after Kew) in London and home to over 2,000 species of tropical plants and trees.
Opened in 1984, the glass structure is an unexpected contradiction, surrounded by the brutal architecture of the Barbican Centre and complex.
In 1986, a cacti-filled house was also added that houses hundreds of species in an arid controlled environment.
The conservatory surrounds a huge fly tower of the Arts Centre theatre, built specially large at the request of then-resident Royal Shakespeare Company.
