McMaster Greenhouse Competition

McMaster’s greenhouse, although over 50 years old, is a busy hub for teaching, research and outreach. Thousands of visitors each year – staff, students, summer campers and plant lovers at large come for the tropical atmosphere, to learn about biodiversity, and to witness the flowering of rare and unusual plants. This gem should not be hidden behind dumpsters, and have a modern home next to LSB. The Biology department is holding an open design competition, with a cash prize, to generate ideas for an iconic greenhouse next to LSB. If you know anyone with an interest in design, construction or architecture, please forward this notice to them. In April, a judging committee including members of the McMaster Community will decide the winners. At that time, community members will be able to view the entries.
