Vitro Architectural Glass: Impressions of glass in building design

Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens

Located in Pittsburgh, PA, USA, Phipps Conservatory consists of a 14-room glass house and 23 gardens on 15 acres of space. While its many flowers, plants and trees are considered the main event, the facilities in which they live is a testament to the power and beauty of glass.

Vitro Architectural Glass is proud to have supplied most of the glass that makes up the conservatory’s iconic structure, where it allows the sun to provide energy to the more than 50,000 plant species that thrive within it.

Watch Vitro’s magnificent tour of Phipps Conservatory to learn how glass allows its diverse climates and habitats to flourish all year round.
